Are you ready for my week 3 diet update? We’ve been discussing Always Eat After 7 PM: The Revolutionary Rule-Breaking Diet That Lets You Enjoy Huge Dinners, Desserts, and Indulgent Snacks—While Burning Fat Overnight by Joel Marion these last several weeks.
The Always Eat After 7 PM plan helps eating right become a lifestyle with its 14-day Acceleration Phase to kick-start the program and see rapid results then moving you to the Main Phase where you’ll learn exactly which foods to eat when in order to achieve your weight-loss goals and finally the Lifestyle Phase to help you keep the weight off for good.
My biggest goal with this program has been to develop healthier eating habits. So far I’m finding the modifications and suggestions from the book to be quite easy to implement. The meal planning coaching and suggestions make choosing what to eat, and in what portions so simple. And with helpful food lists which give long lists of good food choices (and a few pointers on what to avoid), shopping for the week is easy.
I have never been a good sleeper, and the extra stress 2020 has thrown at the world has made my sleep even worse. Always Eat After 7 is teaching me that eating in the evening is not only okay- but can also be beneficial to my sleep! I’ve always been traditionally told to avoid carbs, have an early dinner, and never ever eat before bed. But it turns out that the latest scientific research shows us this is actually not the best way to eat.
“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.”
This No Bake Salted Caramel Bar is my new favorite evening dessert. You’ll find the recipe in Always Eat After 7.
