Always Eat After 7: Making it Work for Me

This post is brought to you by “Always Eat After 7 PM”. The opinions expressed below are my own.

Over the last few weeks I’ve been sharing about 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 bestselling author, Joel Marion. Joel is a fitness expert and nutritionist debunking the myths underlying traditional dieting and offers a simple, highly effective weight loss program

Quote from the book:

“Going without breakfast is part of intermittent fasting (IF), also called time-restricted feeding (TRF). IF is a pattern of food consumption that cycles between fasting and eating in specific time periods. There are various ways to do it; one of the most common is the 16/8 protocol, which involves 16 hours of fasting—typically done overnight—with an 8-hour window in which to eat each day.”

So, as I mentioned in a previous post, I’m not a big breakfast person. However, my body doesn’t like having absolutely nothing for 16 hours straight, and the program does acknowledge there are some people who might need to have a small breakfast. So I’ve been having my veggie shake with a dose of collagen most mornings, and it’s enough to get me through till lunch, yet so low in calories, I feel like I scarcely even need to “count” it. Plus it’s packed with nutrients.

Another change I’ve had to make was skipping the 2 week acceleration phase and going straight to the main phase. I just found this to be more managable for me personally. I can do a carb free meal and maybe even a carb free day, but my body cannot handle 2 straight weeks of low carb meals.

The purpose of the 14-day Acceleration Phase is to kick-start the program and see rapid results. But good, whole food carbs are definitely part of the program starting in the 3rd week. The importance of (good) carbs is also emphasized in the program, so I don’t feel like it’s really a “bad” thing for me to skip to the main phase.

I may not be seeing the “faster” results that those who start with the 14-day Acceleration Phase do, but I have still been pretty happy with the results. I still feel better over all and my blood sugar appreciates the balanced approach.

Overall, I feel like I’ve found a way to make the program work for me and have been given some good principles and recipes to try out.
