Eating After 7 PM: What’s Next + Recap

This post is brought to you by our sponsor, “Always Eat After 7 PM”. As always, the opinions expressed below are my own

Four weeks in! For the past 4-weeks, I’ve been following the ‘Always Eat After 7 PM’ program. Instead of depriving myself of the foods I enjoy, I’ve actually been indulging in late-night snacks like no bake salted caramel bars, fruit mini tarts, and numerous other high carb snacks on a nightly basis. By eating specific fat-burning foods after 7 PM I’m fueling my metabolism while I sleep. I now wake to feel refreshed and ready to tackle the day.

 

In case your new to this series, in post 1 I outlined my goals for the “Always Eat after 7 PM’ program, post 2 I described why I chose this diet, and post 3 I shared my results. 

 

So what’s next? 

 

Well, considering how good I feel, there’s no end in sight! Given my background in medicine, I loved learning the science behind the diet. And now that I understand it, I can work with my natural body rhythms, not against them. Eating after 7 PM is not only good for you, it is necessary!

In the book, Joel explains “Having carbs in the evening is also a great weight loss strategy. When you’re active, your body burns mainly carbohydrates and muscle glycogen for energy. By eating carbs at night, you allow your body to use them to restore glycogen for energy the next day and provide your body with the glucose it needs to regulate your blood sugar levels during sleep.”

Let’s face it we’re all busy. And at the end of the day, our bodies are trying to rest and repair for the day ahead. So if you’re starving yourself at bedtime you’re merely setting yourself back before the day has even begun!

Joel adds, “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.”

Based on surprising science, Always Eat After 7 PM 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.

I still can’t believe I fell for this dieting myth for so long. We’ve been traditionally taught to avoid carbs, have an early dinner, and avoid eating after 7 PM. For years, I used to restrict calories before bedtime. I’d wake feeling drained, and often light-headed during workouts. I was depleting my body, not nourishing it in times of rest. But the fact is, the latest scientific research shows us this earlier model is not the most ideal. 

 

Now that I know what my body needs and when, I can enjoy my late-night snacks, guilt-free! Who wouldn’t be excited about eating chocolate super seed bark each night once the kids are to bed?
