Always Eat After 7 PM #3

Monday, June 8, 2020

Welcome to week 3 of my 4 week journey with the book & diet plan, "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. This week I will be updating you on my goals that I listed in Week #1's blog post. If you haven't check out my previous posts I will leave them linked here: Week 1 & Week 2 . I will also be discussing what I am loving & learning from the book! [this post is sponsored by Always Eat After 7 PM, but all opinions are my own]

Let's talk goals. To reiterate my goals were to gain energy and to lose my postpartum weight (and keep it off). In the past I would lose weight fairly quickly from diet and exercise, but my diet was always very strict and I oftentimes felt like I was missing out on living my best life. I wasn't enjoying food anymore and that saddened me. This is what led me to this plan. The though of getting to eat desserts and other indulgent foods all while getting healthier and losing weight excited me! 

So far I am noticing a change in myself! I noticed that I am gaining a healthier relationship with food. No longer am I beating myself up over eating dessert or obsessing over the scale down to the very ounce. I find that this plan is very doable. I do not feel restricted and I am seeing results! Currently I am down 18 pounds post baby and am already back in my pre-pregnancy jeans (5 weeks post baby) I know some of that is from having a baby, but... I am not going to discredit the loss. I know that my new take on eating has helped me lose the weight so quickly. Plus, with this quarantine going on, you'd think I'd be gaining a ton of weight from boredom eating like everyone else but I'm not! With this plan I have a strict eating window.The most challenging times to curb hunger are just before bed and in the morning. By following the Always Eat After 7PM program, you have the most willpower to stay on the diet because you are eating during the hours when you are most hungry. This also puts you into both intermittent fasting increasing testosterone and your metabolism, while putting you into ketosis. I plan my meals and snacks during those times. This helps me to stay on track even with my ever changing lifestyle during quarantine. As far as energy goes, I am noticing a difference, but to be fair I have a newborn so my sleep schedule is kind of a mess. I'm interested to see what kind of progress I make in this department once the baby gets on a decent sleep schedule!

Okay, now onto what I'm loving/learning from this program. One thing I'm loving is the food list. I am not required to restrict any certain food group. You heard me right... that means carbs are our friends!! See this excerpt from the book: “Fact is, most diets are extremely narrow with regard to food choices and variety, and many even limit entire macronutrients altogether over the course of the entire program (think low-carb and low-fat diets). Three months with no carbs? No thanks. Such practices not only are entirely unnecessary, but make for a miserable, unsustainable experience.” This being said is another reason why this lifestyle change is so obtainable. I used to restrict in my previous weight loss practices and as soon as I "slipped up" I would spiral out of control.
Some of my favorite recipes I've discovered/made from the book are the desserts. I have a huge sweet tooth. I loved the No Bake Salted Caramel Bars and the Cherry Garcia Ice Cream. Don't these sound amazing!

I am so excited to update you all again next week! I really am a believer in this program. Joel Marion’s Always Eat After 7PM program makes dieting easy and eliminates 90% of reasons for resistance.
