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 this book: a review
I’ve tried a lot of diets over the years, and most of them didn’t go so well. Like most people, I do enjoy eating desserts, even if they aren’t on my diet plan. Many times when I failed at a diet, it was because the diet itself was too restrictive and didn’t allow for occasional treats. I’d feel guilty about eating the food, and as a reaction to failing at my diet, I’d eat a little more. Before I knew it, I’d be completely and totally off my diet. Another reason I failed at my many diets is that I was constantly hungry, which led to a lot of snacking…and lot of that snacking was late at night.
Most of us know that if we truly want to lose weight and keep it off, diet and exercise are both key pieces of the puzzle. It’s also important that we understand treating ourselves in moderation is OK and doesn’t mean you’ve failed. And eating dinner after 7 doesn’t impact your weight loss as so many of us have believed for years!
I know what you’re thinking. There are thousands of different diets out there, and most of them are fads. How is this one any different? When Joel Marion, a six-time best selling author, was asked this question, he said, “You’re a six-time best selling author, what is different about this book compared to your others?Although many of the concepts are similar, the biggest difference is that you don’t have to deprive yourself of your favorite foods. You don’t have to deal with the burden of eating every few hours. And you don’t have to skip the carbs at dinnertime or avoid eating before bed.”
Doesn’t that sound a lot more realistic than the diets we are used to reading about?
When asked why he chose to write this book, Joel Marion said, ” 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.”
Yet another misconception Joel Marion addresses in Always Eat After 7 P.M. is the misconception that carbs are bad and will cause you to gain weight. In his book, he writes, “You’re probably thinking, ‘But I thought going low carb was the way to burn fat and lose weight.’ Not according to important scientific evidence. So that’s another misguided diet ‘rule’ that I encourage you to break on Always Eat After 7 P.M. You see, low-carb dieting interferes with leptin, a hormone that is produced in the body’s fat cells and monitors incoming energy as well as total body fat stores. When either incoming energy or body fat stores start to decline (as is often the case on low-carb or low-calorie fat loss diets, a series of reactions is set off in the body. As your leptin levels decline, you’ll experience a downward spiral of negative side effects.”
This is another reason I often failed at dieting. I did not take in enough carbs and experienced a major crash in energy. With Always Eat After 7 P.M., I am already noticing a change in my energy level and I haven’t gained any additional weight.
