This post is brought to you by our sponsor, “Always Eat After 7 PM”. The opinions expressed below are my own.
I’ve never been a “diet” person. Infact, I’ve never really dieted. I try to follow “meal plans” occasionally, but I don’t actually think of that as a diet. I really just try to focus on balanced eating – healthy most of the time and splurge on dessert so I can have more energy and stay focused during the day. There’s not a category of food I restrict per say – and why I don’t usually follow any eating “rules”. The “anti rules” take on eating is actually what intrigued me about Always Eat After 7 PM by Joel Marion and why I was excited to receive an advance copy of the book! Over the next month, I’ll be sharing my experience of the book and how the “diet” is going! I’m not looking to lose weight, I’m trying to stay consistent with eating well – so I’m most excited about having a guided plan that’s not going to make me feel guilty when I didn’t get dinner done by 7 pm and eating at 9 pm.
The Always Eat After 7 PM plan consists of:
- The 14-day Acceleration Phase to kick-start the program – if you’re looking for weight loss this is supposed to be where you’re going to see rapid results – I’m looking to feel my best and most energetic!
- The Main Phase -you’ll learn exactly which foods to eat when in order to achieve your weight-loss and/or health goals
- The Lifestyle Phase – to keep the weight off for good – I’m probably starting in this phase but that’s okay! I do eat a little too much junk food – Oreos and fruit snacks hehe – so I’m hoping this helps with those cravings!
On the first page, Joel gets right to debunking popular diet myths and offers an easy-to-follow diet that accelerates fat-burning and allows you to indulge in your most intense food cravings: Eating the majority of your calories at night.
He references quite a few studies supporting the evidence, and then shares his own experience losing weight testing his theory – losing 12 lbs in the first 2 weeks and 46 lbs after 16 weeks.
One of the studies shared really struck me: “A research paper published in Sports Medicine in 2014 showed that people who eat the majority of their carbs at dinner actually sleep better. Carb-induced, quality sleep decreases cortisol (a fat-storing hormone) and ramps up the production of your sleep hormones, serotonin and melatonin. Restorative sleep increases fat-burning hormones—the main one being growth hormone—overnight.” I’m ALWAYS looking to improve my sleep in some way – because I can never get enough hours! Check out this video from the author for more science behind the diet.
I’m excited to dive in and I’ll post an update of how it’s going next week, so stay tuned!
