Ep. 5: Seasonal Eating + Circadian Aspects of Diet – We All Know Nothing Podcast – WAKN
We talk about the complexity of food, light, circadian rhythm and how they are all tied together. We introduce leptin and leptin resistance, and it’s circadian aspect. Leptin is the hormone that controls fat metabolism and it’s tied to melanopsin the blue light photoreceptor. Melanopsin dysfunction is caused by artificial blue light, EMF and circadian disruption. Circadian disruption leads to leptin resistance, which is causing a lot of the health issues we see today. Eating a seasonal & local diet is only one factor in reestablishing your biological clock and fixing your health.
