Hey ya’ll! I hope that you are all healthy and safe during this time!

I’ve talked on here about my fitness journey with you guys before. Here we go again! I feel like I’m at a point in my life where I’m 85% comfortable with my body. However, with a familial history of diabetes, hypertension and cancer, I want to feel 100% comfortable with my health. So, when given the opportunity to participate in the “Always Eat After 7pm Book Challenge” I took it without hesitation.

Skewed Ideas of Health

Growing up my idea of health was attached to a slender body that only ate fruits and vegetables. I now know that doesn’t fit the vision I have for my life. I’ll never be a size two and I’m more than ok with that. I will never stop eating cheese, so a diet of only fruits and vegetables is out for me. I have no desire to restrict my life in pursuit of an unrealistic idea. However, I am very interested in living a healthy life. I am interested in being in good health for myself, my husband, our children (present and future), and our family.

Why take the Always Eat After 7 Book Challenge

My previously skewed view of health and my current interest in learning how to be my healthiest self is why the “Always Eat After 7pm” book challenge piqued my interest. Growing up as curvy girl I’ve tried everything to trim my frame. One of the biggies I’ve always heard is not to eat late in the evening, especially when you plan to be sedentary after. If you do you’re just asking for trouble, right? Not according to the “Always Eat After 7pm”. Here’s what the book has to say on the matter:

“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.”

This blew my mind because I’ve always thought that eating late at night and then heading to the couch or the bed automatically made for packing on the pounds and, in turn, leading to chronic health issues. 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. Based on surprising science, “Always Eat After 7pm” 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.
