The second week of following this plan was good! Getting started with the new Always Eat After 7:00 p.m. meal plan paired with my live morning workouts helped me to feel energized all day. Week 2 was still the acceleration phase since I’d just started, and I was noticing I felt much better by the end of the night and much more refreshed in the morning. Interestingly, I was not as hungry as I thought I would be, no matter what the time was. I already had established somewhat of an intermittent fasting plan previously, but this was more regimented and a longer fast. I think that the ease of lasting through the whole fast is because I was ensuring that I got all of the good recommended macros in the evening as per the plan.
I was able to make it through the fasting window easily the next day, but there are modifications in the book if anyone needs them, especially in the first parts. One thing that got me hooked on trying this was realizing how easy it is to build a meal with the plan outlined in the book. I was finding comfort in knowing that I wasn’t just trying “another diet” but I was giving a healthy lifestyle plan a chance, one that challenges diet myths such as avoiding late night eating. YOU GUYS – I stay up and work late all the time, so I felt like I was literally made for this Always Eat After 7 business… Plus, I was going back to a plan that is familiar to me since it is a balanced sensible way of eating akin to what my previous diet consisted of when I was at my best. After the Acceleration Phase, I moved onto the main phase, which is to be used until you reach your goal weight or learn the program enough to make it a sustainable lifestyle change for their health (it’s not JUST for weight loss-but I am already down a few pounds!). Lastly, then comes the Lifestyle Phase to keep yourself in the right patterns for a healthy and optimal body and mind.
