The Circadian Diet has more protein in the morning and a higher percentage of carbohydrates at night. The purpose is to eat in sync with the natural 24 hour circadian rhythm, which is a result of the earth spinning on its own axis. During this time, the human body oscillates between two major extremes, the waking state and the sleeping state. Protein drives the chemistry of the waking state and carbohydrates facilitate the relaxation response at night.
