"It's not you, it's your schedule."
Does it sound like magic It's not. We've all heard of circadian rhythms-those biological processes that give us jet lag and make us night owls or early birds. But few of us know just how profoundly these diurnal patterns affect our overall health.
Bad habits like skipping meals, squeezing in workouts when it's convenient, working late into the night to maximize productivity, and then trying to "catch up" on sleep during the weekend disrupt our natural cycles. A growing body of research on chronobiology reveals just how sensitive the human body is to these rhythms all the way down to the genetic level. Our "clock genes" control more than we realize, and small changes can make the difference between battling our bodies and effortlessly managing weight, sleep, stress, inflammation, and more.
Blending ancient Ayurvedic wisdom with cutting-edge science, Change Your Schedule, Change Your Life is the eye-opening, empowering handbook you need to lose weight, sleep better, exercise stronger, reduce stress, and optimize your routine. Complete with diagnostic quizzes to determine your specific body type, Dr. Suhas Kshirsagar's holistic plan gives you the tools-and the schedule-you need to transform your life for good.
