This is my final installment for my 4-part series on the 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. I’m excited to share my final thoughts on the book and diet plan with you!
Why the Always Eat After 7PM Method
I was extremely motivated when I started this journey and I found the plan comprehensive and easy to follow. I was able to get started easily, learn how to meal plan and try some delicious new recipes. Last week I shared that my favorite recipe was the fruit tart. And this week, since it’s my last post, I want to share a secret. There’s a recipe in the book for Cherry Garcia ice cream. Check out this picture to see another example of the amazing food that you can indulge in on this diet plan.
Permission to eat foods like this is what makes this plan a lifestyle and not simply a diet. I will be following this plan for a long time to come because I do not feel deprived. I’m allowed to eat the foods that I love. “Joel Marion’s Always Eat After 7PM program makes dieting easy and eliminates 90% of reasons for resistance.” Need I say more?
Ok, here’s another reason to give the plan a try. “So, despite all the bad press over the years, certain carbohydrates play an important role in balancing your hormones and regulating your metabolic rate, while avoiding the dreaded weight loss plateaus that accompany conventional mainstream diets. Furthermore, when you eat these carbohydrates, you’ll feel much better than you would if you were following a traditional diet.”
Tips for success
I’ll let you in on another one of my secrets for sticking with new habits. I’ve always found success in changing my habits and routines when I find an accountability partner so I did that in this case too and look forward to long term success with this plan.
Another trick that I use is digging deep to determine why I wanted something or started a new habit to begin with. That way, when my motivation fades, I can refer back to why I wanted that thing in the first place. This typically renews my commitment to the new habit or lifestyle. That said, here are a couple of quotes from the book that ended up contributing to my why. These were not things that drove me to start the plan but now that I know, it’s definitely motivation to continue.
“Avoiding carbohydrates and restricting calories later in the day can have an adverse effect on your thyroid hormones, which play a major role in metabolism. When the thyroid fails to secrete enough of the hormones that control metabolism, this can trigger symptoms like fatigue, depression, weight gain, thinning hair, and dry skin.”
“Intermittent fasting really shines when it comes to improving the hormones that directly affect your hunger, blood sugar, and metabolism. One is insulin. IF combats insulin resistance, meaning that it helps your body use insulin more normally, thereby lowering your diabetes risk and boosting your metabolism.”
