Eating before the light of day

    Currently, we are waking up at 5:00am and doing some indoor chores. Then, we go outside about 20 minutes before sunrise to look at the horizon and watch the sunrise. After that we do some kind of outdoor physical activity. In this case, what are the possible risks and benefits of eating before the light of day versus waiting until after it is light outside?

    On many days I also do not eat until the afternoon. On days after hard efforts when muscles are recovering, I wondered if it was better to wait until daylight before eating or if eating early in the morning when it was still dark was fine, or even preferred.

    i think generally in my understanding, am sunlight before food if you can, to rev up your mitochondria before you assimilate food. I look at it like feeding your body with priority “ a” food (am light) versus lower priority sources of electrons for your mitochondria (actual food).

    the way I understand it, the bodies massive production of free electrons (ez water/exclusion zone) due to the interaction of light and water around, specifically the mitochondria, allows the mitochondria to produce energy/atp much more efficiently than without (with more electrons Able to spin the atpase).

    I think it would be recommended to time your bab/ morning meal shortly after am sunlight to take advantage of this heightened mitochondrial capacity.

    Glad to see you back Jason! I also think it matters what light you eat under... try to eat under sunlight if you can or open the windows.
