Every organ and every cell in our body has an internally generated circadian 24-hour clock. These clocks work in coordination to maintain a healthy balance of the processes involved in controlling our bodily functions. Science has found that the body’s natural clocks are influenced by light and dark. This is also known as the sleep/wake cycle. Certain behaviours, such as eating and being active are naturally better adapted to daytime when the sun is present. While during the night when it’s dark, our bodies are more readily primed for sleeping, relaxing and resting. Our body works most effectively when we follow the cycle of our natural circadian rhythm, most importantly, we’re eating at a time when our body burns kilojoules most effectively.
