HOW TO SOLVE THE TOP 8 DIET CHALLENGES. http://ow.ly/vfNH50F8mre

Every year, we ask thousands of new clients about their biggest nutrition challenges.⁣⁠

As you can see in the graph, “I don’t know what to eat” doesn’t even crack the top 10...⁣⁠ Yet it’s the #1 thing people tend to focus on.⁠

Other factors, like emotional eating, dealing with cravings, or eating out too much have a much bigger effect on your progress.⁠

But when you’re able to tackle these problems, your goals become much more attainable.⁠

Here, we share proven strategies to help you overcome the 8 biggest obstacles to healthy eating: http://ow.ly/V0yc50F8mrd

Your circadian rhythm is a 24-hour biological clock that controls how alert you feel. It fluctuates throughout the day, sending out “circadian alerting signals.”⁣⁠⁣⁠

These alerting signals can either ramp up and override your sleep drive (keeping you awake) or quiet down and allow you to succumb to it (causing you to feel sleepy).⁣⁠⁣⁠

This chart shows how these two systems interact. Interestingly, these explain a couple of common experiences.⁣⁠⁣⁠

Experience 1: You’re sleepy after lunch. This typically has nothing to do with food. About 8-9 hrs after our usual rise time, our circadian alerting signal quiets down. This can allow sleep drive to temporarily “overpower” it, causing drowsiness. (Even if you’ve had a good night’s sleep.)⁣⁠⁣⁠

In some cultures, people use this as an opportunity for “siesta.” If you lay down in a quiet place, you'll likely fall asleep. It’s also why many people opt for a caffeine boost.⁣⁠

Experience 2: You get a “second wind” as bedtime approaches. Once you’ve been up for 14 or 15 hours, your internal clock has to work hard to keep you awake. (Since your sleep drive is now high.) As a result, your circadian alerting signal is at its highest in the last few hours before bedtime.⁣⁠ Yes, that’s counterintuitive.⁣⁠⁣⁠

No one knows exactly why this happens, but one theory is that there’s an evolutionary benefit: Instead of falling asleep right when the sun goes down, your second wind ensures you have enough energy to prepare a safe place to sleep (put wood on the fire, check your environment, make sure your kids are good, cover the opening of your cave).⁣⁠⁣⁠

Ever feel exhausted when you get home from work, but then a bit more energetic later in the evening? That’s your second wind.⁣⁠ Don’t be fooled. Once your alerting signal quiets down, you’ll fall asleep. For instance, at 9:30, you might feel like you can stay awake for a whole movie, but by 10:30 your partner is taking a video of you snoring on the couch.
