So if you all don’t know, I’m going to be 47 this year, which means I’m right smack in that life stage where I’m dealing with peri-menopause. I feel like between that and getting older, even though I’m eating the same as I always have, I’m putting on pounds. I’ve been really interested in shaking up my routine to see if I can shed some of that unwanted weight gain.
With that goal, when I was sent an e-mail about receiving an advance copy of 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 quickly agreed to read through it. I’ll keep you up to date here on the blog on how I’m doing following the diet and its results for me.
I have always been told that eating in the evening/later PM hours will hold you back from losing weight. And according to a recent magazine quiz I took about eating habits, I’m a vampire (meaning I like to eat at night LOL!).
Here’s why I am so intrigued by this new book. 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.
Say What?!! That’s not to say I’m going to sit down on the couch at 10 PM with a bowl of ice cream and brownies while I binge watch TV. It definitely sets me up though to not have that feeling that “I’ve failed” when I eat in the evenings. So this quote from the book really resonated with me to help me ditch that late night eating diet myth:
- “Research shows that the average person’s metabolic rate is no different during sleep than during the day. In short, your metabolism doesn’t slow down at night. Nor does your body store fat at the end of the day. Whether it’s 8 am or 8 pm, you use food for energy the same way.”
We’ve been traditionally taught to avoid carbs, have an early dinner, and never eat before bed. But the fact is, the latest scientific research shows us this earlier model is not the most ideal. Check out this video on the science behind this diet.
It’s so affirming to know that I can still be healthy (and happy!) if I eat later in the evening and it doesn’t matter when I’m consuming my calories. I’m excited to see what kinds of results I achieve as I embrace this diet plan.
