Meet the Mapstons Part 1: Shift Work and Potential Consequences

Cory and Dona Mapston have been living on a shift work schedule for almost 3 decades. Cory is a sergeant in the San Diego Police Department and despite a rotating shift-work schedule, he has managed to optimize his schedule to stay healthy. Unfortunately, most people on a shift work schedule have not cracked this very complicated code of healthy living on an erratic schedule. We interviewed Cory and his wife Dona to discuss what they’ve learned over the past 28 years of living with shift-work.

Clocks in College: How your body clock affects your ability to learn

More and more students find themselves staying up late in order to complete assignments, study for tests, make time for a job, or maintain a social life. In our previous blog, Clocks in College, we discussed the notion that many students experience circadian disruption without realizing the full implication that it has on their health. Most students understand on some level that this fluctuating schedule can have negative effects (they are tired, experience more anxiety, etc) but rarely do students realize that disruption of their circadian rhythm is increasing their risk for many metabolic diseases (see our blog: Biological Clocks). Even more surprising, is that most students have no idea how much their own study schedule could be impacting their ability to learn.

Minding your clock: Interview with long-time user of TRF

When Lynn was in high school, her dad wanted to lose weight. He began cutting out his late night snacks, and Lynn’s mom began cooking dinner earlier in the evening to help with the diet. As a result, Lynn usually had her last meal around 4:30pm each day, and she avoided snacks in the evening with the rest of her family. Without realizing it, Lynn had started a diet of time-restricted feeding (TRF).

Prolonged Snacking

A recent study published in Cell Metabolism September 2015, determined that most of us are eating longer than 15 hours a day. The eating duration of 15 hours is derived from when a person takes their first bite of nutrition or a sip of a beverage in the morning, to the very last bite or drink they have that day.

A Prized Life: A glimpse into the life of Nobel Laureate, Dr. Roger Guillemin

(LA JOLLA) – As part of our project to better understand healthy lifestyles in our society, we will be interviewing a wide variety of people that are living healthy lives. I am honored to have, as our first interviewee, Dr. Roger Guillemin, MD, Ph.D., a Nobel-laureate in endocrinology, artist, husband, father of six, grandfather, and still active 92 years old. In the interview, we talked about his life, his family, and his daily lifestyle (when, what, and how much he eats, sleeps, and moves). In order to understand his lifestyle, first, you’ll need to know more about his life.

Circadian Rhythms and Heart Attacks

We all know it can be stressful to transition from sleep to wake. Some mornings are worse than others. The alarm rings, we turn it off, and experience an overwhelming desire to go back to sleep. That transition from sleep state to wake state is governed by circadian rhythms. The biological clocks in our cells are shifting cellular function from reparative and restorative modes to active operational modes needed to send us out into the world for another day of survival challenges.

Health, Disease, and Biological Clocks

Welcome to my blog on circadian rhythms and their effects on cardiovascular and metabolic health! Hopefully I will be able to shed light (no pun intended!) on how all our body clocks work together to control many of the risk factors that lead to metabolic syndrome, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
