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.
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).
(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.
