The Circadian Prescription

Get in Step With Your Body's Natural Rhythms to Maximize Energy, Vitality, and Longevity

by Sidney MacDonald Baker, M.D., with Karen Baar, M.P.H (Perigee)

The Circadian Prescription

 

 

Most of us pay less attention to our body's circadian clock than we do to the alarm clock on our night table or the watch on our wrist, laments Dr. Sidney MacDonald Baker. In The Circadian Prescription, he clearly and enthusiastically presents all the scientific literature to show why he thinks this is a big-time mistake. A body's internal clock completes its rhythmic cycle about every 24 hours in synchrony with the earth's rotation. Exposure to sunlight (because of working inside all day many of us don't get enough), sleep and diet can all influence the internal clock and create havoc with mood, weight (blood sugar is a key affected component) and health. Baker's plan, including his belief that eating protein in the morning and carbohydrates later in the day is important, features simple steps to improving all these areas. If you've never heard of the important effect sunlight can have on weight and sleep patterns, two other fascinating reads are Nobody Overeats by S.M. Madden, M.D. (Sage Creek Press) and Sunlight by Zane R. Kime, M.D. (World Health Publications).
