#152 A World Without Email with Cal Newport

You can download The Doctor’s Kitchen app for free here.

Modern work is defined by a relentless barrage of incoming messages and back-and-forth digital conversations. What this creates is a state of constant, anxious chatter in which nobody can disconnect.


In addition to this inability to unplug, is a squeezing of our cognitive bandwidth to perform substantive work. The type of work that really matters. We have become so used to an inbox-driven workday that it’s hard to imagine alternatives.


And that’s why I’m speaking with computer science professor Cal Newport today who makes the case that our current approach to work is broken and why digital minimalism is so important.


Cal is a NY Times bestselling author of several books, including, most recently, A World Without Email, Digital Minimalism, and Deep Work. Many of his articles from his column in the New Yorker and his weekly newsletter have inspired me to create a better working environment for me, my staff with the goal of promoting mental wellbeing and happiness which is why it was such a pleasure to have him on the show today.


His latest book, A World Without Email provides a bold vision for liberating workers from the tyranny of the inbox, and unleashing a new era of productivity.

Why do we sleep? It seems like such a luxury, an evolutionary oversight, a privilege some might say?

#153 Time Restricted Eating (TRE) with Professor Satchin Panda PhD

Can when you eat be as important as what you eat? My next guest thinks so, and has spent his academic career studying the effects of circadian rhythm on everything from heart disease, exercise capacity, cognitive health and diabetes.Satchin Panda, PhD is a professor at The Salk Institute in La Jolla, California. His lab studies how circadian rhythm in metabolism is an integral part of metabolic health and longevity. In preclinical animal models he discovered that consuming all calories within a consistent 8-12 hours also known as Time-restricted feeding can sustain daily rhythms.One of the commonest topics I’m asked about is whether TRE or eating within rigid windows is advisable, and so I was fortunate to spend some time with Dr Panda himself whose research I’ve been privy to for many years. Studies have shown that this practical tool can prevent or even reverse chronic diseases and increase lifespan and today you’ll learn about:What circadian rhythms areThe biggest drivers to rhythm - eating, light, exerciseEating strategies for shift workersWhen is the best time of day for ExerciseWhether grazing on food within a TRE window is advisableHow we separate the effect of TRE from a calorie deficitThe history of circadian scienceHow we use mice to research circadian rhythmsHow disrupting rhythm causes diabetes - effects of time-restricted eating on glucose metabolism.Why giving your gut a rest is importantThe benefits of intermittent fasting to insulin, your gut, inflammation and fat breakdownYou can find my guests book “The Circadian Diabetes Code” in all good book stores and the links to Satchin’s website and app are on www.thedoctorskitchen.com too.You can download The Doctor’s Kitchen app for free to get access to all of our recipes, with specific suggestions tailored to your health needs and new recipes added every month.
