Life span extension has been a goal of research for several decades. Resetting circadian rhythms leads to well being and increased life span, while clock disruption is associated with increased morbidity accelerated aging. Increased longevity and improved health can be achieved by different feeding regimens that reset circadian rhythms and may lead to better synchrony in metabolism and physiology. This review focuses on the circadian aspects of energy metabolism and their relationship with aging in mammals.
