When I first introduced you to Joel Marion’s book, Always Eat After 7 PM: The Revolutionary Rule-Breaking Diet That Lets You Enjoy Huge Dinners, Desserts, and Indulgent Snacks—While Burning Fat Overnight I was able to tell you that I loved how easy it was to get started. Now that I am several weeks into the program I still feel like I was guided so smoothly and it wasn’t much o=f a chore to start my new eating habits.
I chose to join Joel Marion’s program because other low-carb plans felt so rigid and constrictive it simply was not fun or motivating. With this program I learned some myths about other eating styles I used to follow and how you actually can enjoy some ‘forbidden’ foods and even eat late in the day while accelerating fat-burning. I was actually to start this plan from Day 1.
I attribute my eagerness to start on this plan with the education I got in the first part of Always Eat After 7pm. I learned a lot of new facts no one has ever informed me of before and I wish I had known earlier. One thing that stands out most is how, eating carbs at night induces deeper sleep. 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 didn’t want to just ‘eat’ healthier, I wanted an overall healthier body and mind. This means I wanted to lose weight as well as sleep better and get my body back into a natural, hormone balanced state. I had no ‘sugar crashes’, no “carb withdraw headaches’.
I simply began to crave less sugar and as time went on I would have moments where I realize how much energy I seemed to have and how well I have slept and how good of moods I have now been in. I would recommend everyone turn to Always Eat After 7pm for any health changes you may want to begin.
