Week Two: Why I Chose this Book/Diet and Author Interview
Two weeks ago, in my last post (no sponsored posts last week due to it being #BlackoutTuesday) I promised to keep everyone updated on my progress and benefits of my first week in the Acceleration Phase of my diet. Without further ado, here is my personal experience after my first week and a brief interview of the Always Eat After 7PM author, Joel Marion.
The benefits of being in the first phase are more energy and rapid results. In this phase, I’m skipping breakfast aside from the 3-minute fat-burning drinks. I’m also following the intermittent fasting schedule (ex. last meal at 8PM means first meal of the next day at noon). I started committing to get at least 8 hours of sleep and waking up 30 minutes earlier than usual to start my day productively (morning skincare, making the bed, etc…). Additionally, I have been drinking way more water. No alcohol in this phase so aside from lemon water I’ve been drinking tea and “mock-qito’s” aka lime and mint minus the vodka.
The benefits helping me reach my personal goals are my increased energy and I’m losing around a pound a day. At first, I anticipated being hungry and was afraid of temptation during social situations. In reality, I am fully satisfied with my meals and my friends are supportive of my diet. Because I communicated ahead of time and I bring my own food to events; I don’t feel pressured to overeat or quit.
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. My favorite part of the Acceleration Phase is the pre-bedtime snack.
Top 12 pre-bedtime fat burning foods (p.45-51):
- one and two: Greek yogurt and cottage cheese
- three: eggs
- four: lean animal proteins
- five: coniferous vegetables
- six: dark leafy greens
- seven: blueberries and other berries
- eight: cherries
- nine: kiwi fruit
- 10: grapefruit
- 11: avocados
- 12: mixed nuts
“Late-night eating also curbs calorie intake the next day. In a four-week study, dieters added a snack to their daily regimen 90 minutes after dinner every night, and check this out: late-night eaters ate an average of 397 fewer calories per day.”
Bestselling author, Joel Marion, is a fitness expert and nutritionist debunking the myths underlying traditional dieting and offers a simple, highly effective weight loss program. Joel Marion was kind enough to answer some questions about Always Eat After 7PM.
What inspired you to write the book?
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.
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.
How difficult is the Always Eat After 7 PM plan to follow?
It’s not. And that’s exactly why I wrote the book. While any diet is never truly easy, it can be more enjoyable and much easier to adhere to when you understand how Always Eat After 7pm works because it caters to our bodies natural instincts.
