02:02 Another simple way to describe chrononeutrakinetic is food timing.
02:17 Food timing is I think a very important RecoverMe issue if you will. It is a way to eat. It’s part of the lifestyle, not focusing as much, although important on what you eat, but when you eat.
04:49 quit criminalizing everything and allow your body to adapt to your environment, teach it how to do that, support it, and that’s the whole recovery philosophy
05:08 focus on not just when are not just what to eat, but when to eat and how to eat, and that’s where chrononeutrakinetics comes in.
05:31 Drugs can be defined as any substances that affect the process of living and pharmacology is the study of those drugs, the branch of pharmacology that studies the fate of drugs in the body, and what that means is how are they absorbed? How do they distributed? What’s your metabolism? What’s her elimination? Those that’s called pharmacokinetics in slightly easier terms. It’s the study of what the body does with the drugs ingested.
06:01 pharmacodynamics and that’s the study of the biochemical and physiological effects of the drugs and their mechanism of action.
06:14 pharmacokinetics is what the body does with the drug. Pharmacodynamics is what the drug does to the body.
07:10 The amount of the drug, what it was taken with all come into play, but really so does the time of day. When you ingest the drug based on your natural daily cycles of sleep, wake cycles, circadian rhythm and whatnot. It affects your body different when you take a drug and therefore food does the same thing.
08:49 another variable to consider when we prescribe and that is what time of day would this drug be most appropriate and that’s all based on chronopharmakinetics. This is important because more and more we’re having once a day drugs being made because it’s hard.
10:03 When you talk to your doctor about Aspirin, he or she would say you need to take that first thing in the morning. Why? Because the bioavailability of the Aspirin is higher in the morning than it is in the afternoon, and so we would suggest everyone take their preventative Aspirin first thing in the morning. However, evidence-based medicine has shown us that taking Aspirin at bedtime actually decreases the chance of GI bleeds and side effects. It also improves cancer prevention. Colon cancer prevention is still another reason to possibly take Aspirin if you have a high risk for colon cancer, but taking that in the evening is more beneficial with less side effects and taking it in the morning. Even though the pharmacokinetics tell us it’s more bioavailable in the morning.
15:12 when you eat, when you eat certain foods versus others, has a profound impact on your long term health, longevity, weight loss, treatment of chronic pain, Arthritis, Fibromyalgia. I mean the list goes on and on. It’s a lot more than just don’t eat that, eat this, but how about don’t eat that but eat this, eat it at this time, that’s what we’re going to look at now in pharma, excuse me, Chorononeutakinetics. So let’s talk about, let’s say you’re someone like me, like every human out there. I always joke with people. I hear from some people I don’t like sugar doc, that’s all. You don’t have to worry about me and I, “oh really? You don’t like sugar and you’re a Homo Sapien. You’re human and you don’t like sugar. Okay? How much beer do you drink?'” They pause for a minute. Like, “what do you mean, doc?” said, “well, if you’re a beer drinker as turn to sugar in your body, you’re still getting a sugar in.” So what I’m saying with that is we all like sugar.
18:02 how to eat, when to eat, and that’s where I get the term Chorononutrakinetics it has to do when you eat, your food must be as important as what you eat and how much you eat. A simple example is the rise of insulin with intake of carbohydrates, so breads, pastas, cereals, etc. Your lifestyle and all the consequences, including programming of your internal clock causes you to crave carbohydrates at a certain time of day. That’s why I talked about what happens when you come home from a hard day’s work.
18:36 because you programmed your internal clock to do so according to what you had to eat or earlier that day, possibly the day before, and your overall lifestyle.
23:47 100, 200, 300 years ago, famines and lack of food, we’re more consistent and persistent, so bodies learned how to store fat for energy during that famine or whatnot, but because of our current society, the 7/11 down the street, snacks in the office, all the stuff, we utilize sugar and we tend to leave our fat stores alone. So in the terms of Chrononutrakinetics, if we repeatedly feed our bodies, what I like to call active carbohydrates, so the sugars and whatnot, we cause insulin to spike continually. We set up more fat storage because again insulin says, “oh, sugars, here I can feed the brain with the brain will get with that. Any excess or extra, I’m going to stick, stick in this lady’s hips or this man’s belly.” Energy in the form of active carbohydrates is present to feed the brain and the body is happy so the body just turns the excess into fat storage.
25:47 And let’s say you don’t eat until 3:00 in the afternoon doing a DET plan. That’s fine. that’s just when you want to utilize the most of your carbohydrates. You’ll consume throughout the day is your first meal of the day. After that fasting time because that’s when insulin response is most sensitive. That’s when your body is going to do the right thing with those carbohydrates. So that’s a first food timing rule that we’re discussing with Chorononeutakinetics is eating majority of carbohydrates in your first meal of the day after your fast. The second time is immediately after a workout if you’re working out on that day because exercise utilizes the storage form of sugar in the muscles, and it sets up the environment for needing, replenishing and energy. So this causes instance rise, deposit energy and now our hungry muscles because we just exercise. So optimally you eat right after your fast first thing in the morning or with DET dieting, and then eat some active carbohydrates alone with some protein right after you exercise.
28:03 We go to bed on an empty stomach and we’ve talked about that before, the importance of not eating a few hours, going to bed, waking up in the morning after overnight fast with insulin sensitivity at its highest. Then have your biggest active carbohydrate meal of the day, causing a spike in insulin that stores all that energy and muscles for growth and maintenance of our lean mass and lean tissue. Make sure adequate protein’s available at every meal. Eat according to your schedule throughout the day, so don’t be too fixed on that 5, 7, 10 meal a day, garbage that’s out there. Eat according to your schedule, but slowly decrease your carbohydrate intake throughout the day. This allows us steady dropping insulin, arise in Glucagon, the fat burner causing the body to return to stat fat stores for energy while we’re carrying out our daily activities.
That is Chorononeutakinetics in the RecoverMe method to a T. Very simple to do. It’s something you can incorporate that in your lifestyle right now. I think you’ll be amazed just like my doctor friend in town, how quickly your body responds to when to eat, not just how to eat.
Now, in some future podcasts, I’ll get into a little more detail on Chorononeutakinetics and different foods and food types, how we can apply to our lifestyle in particular to certain disease states. There’s a number of medical conditions and concerns out there that really interrupt people’s good quality of life that can be benefited and manipulated by food timing, using different foods. This is what we’re actually using food as medicine. Food is drugs and so beyond the lookout or ear shout out for those because we’ll get to those, in this podcast series over time.
