A lot of you who know me in real life know that until recently, I’d been consistently working out, four times each week. And I loved it. But I’ve had to step back from my workouts for a bit, and while I haven’t been gaining any weight, I haven’t lost any either.
I was offered the chance to review 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. I took that chance because I am still looking to lose weight, and I’d love more energy. That’s something I miss from working out consistently.
And if you know me in real life, you also know, I’m a night owl. I do have to get up at a “normal” hour, because of work, but I’m much more active in the evenings.
I’m also that person who doesn’t typically eat breakfast first thing in the morning. I’m usually never hungry until at least nine or ten, and when left to my own devices, I usually only eat twice a day. A late breakfast, and a late dinner. So I thought this might be a good fit there as well.
For the next month, I’ll be following the plan detailed in the book, and sharing how it’s working for me. There are three phases: The 14-day Acceleration Phase which kick-starts the program, The Main Phase to learn exactly which foods to eat when in order to achieve your weight-loss goals, and then The Lifestyle Phase, which helps keep the weight off for good.
Now, we’re always told not to eat after dinner. And that is something I constantly struggle with. I’m up late writing letters, or journaling, or crafting, and suddenly it’s nine-thirty and I want a snack.
Based on surprising science, Always Eat After 7 PM debunks 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.
So it’s not necessarily a bad thing when you eat late: “Late-night eating also curbs calorie intake the next day. In a four-week study, dieters added a snack to their daily regimen 90 minutes after dinner every night, and check this out: late-night eaters ate an average of 397 fewer calories per day.”
