Other Information:
On November 1, 2017 I was chosen to participate in a 14 week study with the Salk Institute. Study being conducted by Dr. Satchin Panda

**Time Restricted Eating. Consuming food within a 12 hour period, in conjunction to our Circadian Rhythm . I shoot between 9-10hrs. I consume my food from 9a-6:30p. I don't count Calories, I try to eat more intuitively. Not having Processed Foods, Dairy, and Sugar makes identifying real hunger queues much easier! *My Experience!
