Update

In my first post, I stated that, “Toning up my body and increasing my stamina are at the TOP of my list of health goals.” I’m happy to report that I have lost 14 lbs in two weeks of following Always Eat After 7PM. I have a lot more energy due to prioritizing sleep as a daily habit, drinking enough water, and eating plenty of fresh food. I feel lighter on my feet (literally) and physically I can see a subtle difference. I’m finding it easier to walk and I’m able to do more without feeling drained.

I have completed the Acceleration Phase and am now onto the Main Phase. I’m permitted a cheat meal and alcohol once a week. Also, there is a larger calorie allotment and super carbs are allowed. Super carbs: starches (dried beans, lentils, carrots, peas, beets, oats, greens, certain breads, and even some pastas), fruit, non-starchy vegetables… If you select super carbs and combine them with lots of protein and moderate to low fats they can dramatically improve your body’s fat burning efficiency and overall metabolic health (p.31-32).

Infographic: Top 12 Pre-Bedtime Fat Burning Foods.

As mentioned in my second post, the pre-bedtime fat burning snacks are my favorite part of this 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.  The pre-bedtime snacks help me sleep I even created this infographic about the recommended snacks from this book.

“Specific higher-carbohydrate foods (including berries and cherries) support your fat-burning metabolism while you sleep, providing your body with a steady stream of fuel throughout the night. The trick is knowing how to combine them with other evening and pre-bedtime fat-burning foods to fuel your metabolism as you sleep.”

Willpower

The most challenging times to curb hunger are just before bed and in the morning. By following the Always Eat After 7PM program, you have the most willpower to stay on the diet because you are eating during the hours when you are most hungry. This also puts you into both intermittent fasting increasing testosterone and your metabolism, while putting you into ketosis.  

Goal Setting and Update on Always Eat After 7PM

In my second week into the diet there were many opportunities where I could have strayed from my diet, but I’m proud that I didn’t. Instead of buying concessions I brought salmon salad and my late night snack to the drive-in movies. I ordered from the menu at a restaurant (outdoors) while sticking to my diet. I have also attended socially distanced gatherings like a housewarming, where I brought my own foods to the cookouts. I’m still able to keep an active social life without having to compromise on this diet.

Goals

My Personal Goals

I’d like to get back to my pre-pandemic weight of 140 lbs, then after that I’d like to combine my diet with regular exercise to reach my goal weight of 120 lbs. I’m confident that I will get there as long as I remain consistent and stay focused.

This diet is really fascinating to me. I could see the foods you have listed as being OK to eat after 7 but lean animal proteins seems like one I would not have thought of to consider. I eat plenty of vegetables and berries so that part looks good for me. This is very interesting as is your progress. Good luck on the continued success.

Interesting idea, eating after 7pm. Most diets seem to subscribe to the nothing after 6pm rule!. But I like the list of fat-burning foods to eat before bed

It sounds like the book’s advice is really working for you so far. Congratulations!
I love the infographic, it’s a very good way of presenting the information and very easy to remember. There are a few foods on there that I really enjoy, which is a big plus.
I look forward to hearing more updates about your progress towards your goal.

I’ve seen a lot of chatter about this diet plan and I’m intrigued largely based on the fact that it doesn’t seem as restrictive as most of the fad diets out there. I think we often set ourselves up for failure jumping into something super restrictive that we simply can’t maintain without giving up the things that we enjoy. I mean, look at those fruit tarts you shared – clearly you can still enjoy your love of good food while sticking to this plan!

The food looks incredible, and it’s great to hear that the diet is working.I always feel better when I eat more fresh food and more protein, so this might work for me.
