Hey ya’ll!

It’s been a while! I took a much needed break, but I’m back and getting things back on track. A combination of being sedentary and stress got to me over the last couple weeks, and I’d been eating horribly. Take out every other night and more chips than I can count. Needless to say, I felt terrible and bloated each morning which is NO good for me. This week has been much better. There was not takeout to speak of and I was much more mindful about my snacking. I’m also catching up on the tips and strategies outlined in the 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.

Why I Chose the Always Eat After 7pm Book

Last time we talked about my desire to implement and maintain a healthy diet. This is why I ultimately chose this book. Chronic disease and illness runs in my family. In fact, the black community is more at risk for certain illnesses as whole. I want to be doing all I can now to make sure that I’m able to lead a long and healthy life. Additionally, the title caught my attention. I am the queen of eating dinner after 9pm! I’ve always been under the impression that eating late in the evening would only lead to long term negative effects. It’s been refreshing to learn that this is in fact a myth. If it were true, I’d never achieve my health and fitness goals! Always Eat After 7pm debunks the myths that have been holding me back and making me feel like a failure.

Are Carbs Really Bad for Me?

Carbs universally seem to be the first thing to go whenever someone decides to get into better shape. This is one of the big things I worried about when it came to achieving my health and fitness goals. I’ve never been good at counting carbs (or any macro for that matter). The thought of managing how many carbs to eat, when to eat them, and when to avoid them was too much for me. I’ll workout like nobody’s business. However, it’s no secret to me that my diet has always lacked discipline. Here’s what the book has to say on carbs and how they affect our bodies:

 “A research paper published in Sports Medicine in 2014 showed that people who eat the majority of their carbs at dinner actually sleep better. Carb-induced, quality sleep decreases cortisol (a fat-storing hormone) and ramps up the production of your sleep hormones, serotonin and melatonin. Restorative sleep increases fat-burning hormones—the main one being growth hormone—overnight.”

Once again, mind blown! I’ve always thought that carbs were the enemy of a healthier lifestyle, and should be avoided at all cost. Another myth bites le dust. Joel Marion’s Always Eat After 7PM program makes achieving health and fitness goals easier, and eliminates 90% of reasons for resistance. 

Why the Author Chose to Write the Always Eat After 7pm Book

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. As a bonus, I was able to get answers straight from the Joel about why he chose to write this book. Take a peak below!

What inspired you to write the book?

Joel: “After authoring 6 best selling books it was glaringly obvious there were 2 huge misconceptions about dieting that needed to be exposed. The first is that you can’t eat late at night or before bed, which science now shows is NOT true. And second, you can’t eat large portions that satisfy your natural instinct. This book solves both these problems by providing an evidence-based, enjoyable approach to dieting that can be used by any person to quickly achieve their weight loss goals.”

How long did it take for you to develop the diet?

Joel: “It actually took several years of researching for me to discover the real science of eating late night. After a few years of tweaking and refining, I finally came up with a rapid fat loss solution that overcomes all the pitfalls of traditional diets.”

What was the most surprising discovery when you were researching scientific data for the diet?

Joel: “That almost everything my college education and certifications taught me was NOT grounded in published scientific research.”

Based on what I’ve learned so far, I’m excited to forge head!
