Always Eat After 7PM

Introduction

This post is brought to you by our sponsor, “Always Eat After 7 PM”. The opinions expressed below are my own. 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.
Week 2 Update!
Week 2 had me feeling like I was getting into the groove, and feeling awesome! I was starting to get back on track with scheduled and regular meals, while staying active. Stay tuned for week 3 update next Monday! After reading Joel’s personal story and seeing how it really aligned with what I was going through I was even more inspired. Then seeing the science behind his protocol and the delicious recipes, I was pumped to give it a go! Considering my goal is to find a way to eat healthier again that doesn’t feel too restrictive, the fact that I was feeling so full already with these meals is promising. I think that by following this guideline, I felt confident and satisfied enough to continue and reach my goals. It’s been interesting to learn more about the author, for example when interviewed, turns out he was inspired to write this book due to the major misconceptions about dieting that he thought should be exposed. Also that it took him several years of researching before he was able to write the book about this diet he developed. I’ve also started listening to Joel’s podcast again, Born To Impact which is super inspiring as well. Learn more about the book and how to purchase here
So far I’m finding that it’s so much easier to curb cravings when eating at night. I think that this will contribute to my ability to finish this program and maintain a healthy diet going forward. Stay tuned for next week’s update! If you landed here but haven’t read my first post in this series, check it out here!
