Entering week three of my four week challenge of trying out the diet plan in the new 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” by Joel Marion and I love some of the improvements I’m seeing. In the past, feeling guilty about eating too much right before bed, I’ve often gone to bed hungry and woken up the next morning hangry. (See last week’s post about improved sleep here). The book includes lots of great recipes to keep you feeling full all night long. One of my favorites is the Chili Loaded Baked Potato – such a lovely comfort food to end the day. The Always Eat After 7 PM recipes are simple to follow and include the right combination of macronutrients to help stabilize blood sugar and regulate your cortisol cycle keeping your body in fat burning mode.
By combining the recipes with some of the tools found in the book, I’ve found I’ve been sleeping better and waking up without that ravenous feeling of needing to eat something (anything!) right away. Making better food choices first thing in the morning has led me to make better choices throughout the day. Exactly what I was hoping for.
One of the simplest ways I begin my morning routine now is with a warm mug of lemon water. As I learned in the book:
“One of the simplest 3-Minute Fat-Burning Morning Rituals, lemon water is a glass of water mixed with the juice of one half of a lemon. This drink provides all the benefits of regular drinking water, which supports weight loss, digestive health, physical performance, and cognitive function.”
Another simple way I’ve curbed snacking throughout the day and found the will power needed to make better choices is through simple hydration. We all know it’s important to drink water rather than other less healthy options, but do you know all the reasons why?
“Water helps digest your food, expel wastes, regulate your temperature, protect your tissues, cushion your joints, and protect your spinal column, among many other vital functions. It is through water that hormones flow to the proper organs, that nutrients reach all cells, and that toxins are diluted and removed from the body.”
I’m not alone in feeling that the most challenging times to curb hunger are just before bed and in the morning. By following the Always Eat After 7PM program, you have the most willpower to stay on the diet because you are eating during the hours when you are most hungry. This also puts you into both intermittent fasting increasing testosterone and your metabolism, while putting you into ketosis.
Bestselling author, Joel Marion, is a fitness expert and nutritionist debunking the myths underlying traditional dieting and offers a simple, highly effective weight loss program. I highly recommend you check it out.
