Satchin Panda, Ph.D., is a leading expert in the field of circadian rhythm research. As a professor at the Salk Institute in San Diego, California, his research focuses on circadian rhythm in health and disease.

Research in his lab has shown the profound impact of ambient light and daily eating-fasting on the prevention and prognosis of a wide range of diseases including diabetes, depression, metabolic syndrome, heart diseases, and cancer.

He also discovered time-restricted eating in which individuals who eat everything within an 8- to 12-hour period can boost circadian rhythm and prevent or reverse many chronic diseases.

Dr. Panda published a new book titled: The Circadian Code: Lose Weight, Supercharge Your Energy, and Transform Your Health from Morning to Midnight.

In this episode we talk about the impact of Dr. Panda’s research and discoveries had on my Game Changers Law #19: Waking Up Early Does Not Make You a Good Person, his new book, and why circadian rhythm is so closely linked to productivity and performance.
