Always Eat After 7PM : Week 3 & Yummy Recipes

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

Over the last few weeks I've been chatting about my experience with Joel Marion's new book Always Eat After 7PM: The Revolutionary Rule-Breaking Diet That Lets You Enjoy Huge Dinners, Desserts, and Indulgent Snacks - While Burning Fat Overnight. Today I thought I would give a quick update of some of the results I've been experiencing, and some of the yummy goodness that I found inside the pages.

Here's a quick peek at my journey so far:


To be transparent I am actually well into my fourth week, but in light of what is going on in the world, I needed time to reflect on my thoughts outside of building the healthy lifestyle that I am trying to achieve. 

When offered the chance to give the Always Eat After 7PM method a try, my goal was to try to do something to boost my energy. I just felt "blah" daily. And tired. Always tired. Being a parent to three young kids, I get that comes with the territory. But, I'd at least like to try to keep up in the marathon that is parenthood, and hopefully go into each day not feeling completely deflated by 2pm. 

Overall I've definitely noticed a boost in my energy levels. Surprisingly so. This was perfect timing in terms of putting a move right in the middle of this experiment, but feeling fueled enough to handle that and every day life has felt like a blessing. 

I also have noticed I'm not as ravenous when I wake up or suddenly have major sugar cravings in the afternoon. Those things seemed to have evened out. If anything the thing I am craving most is salsa. Like a spoonful of salsa. Don't ask me why. I haven't questioned it because well - it's salsa.  

I did not weigh myself at the start of this, nor did I take any "before" shots. So I can't give any concrete evidence to the weight loss. It wasn't my ultimate goal so I didn't really think to record anything about it. But I've noticed my clothes are fitting looser, and I feel less bloated at the end of the day. I wish I had thought to track this for you guys - especially if you are looking to learn more about the fat burning/weight loss aspects of Always Eat After 7PM. But going off of how I feel - it works. 


If you take anything away from this book, let it be these two things: 

1: The ideas of never eating late in the day, and carbs are bad - throw those two thoughts right out the window. Joel Marion proves with science based facts multiple times these are just myths. 

“Avoiding carbohydrates and restricting calories later in the day can have an adverse effect on your thyroid hormones, which play a major role in metabolism. When the thyroid fails to secrete enough of the hormones that control metabolism, this can trigger symptoms like fatigue, depression, weight gain, thinning hair, and dry skin.”

2: Eating doesn't have to be restrictive in order to be healthy, and he proves that too. With multiple yummy recipes. 

I was pleasantly surprised when I got to the recipe section of Always Eat After 7PM. Not only does Joel share a ton of great meal planning ideas, he also has a variety of delicious recipes that are designed to help you reach your health goal - whatever that may look like for you. 

From dinner to dessert, there are a ton of yummy options to choose from, and  - most importantly - taste as good as they look. My family already has a few favorites that I have a feeling will be added to our weekly meal rotation no matter what. 

I mean, hello Chili Baked Potato...

Listen, any health routine that includes potatoes - I'm in! 

Each recipe is easy to follow (thank you!!), and includes tips, helpful modifications, and nutritional information so that you can easily factor in your daily health calculations (super helpful - especially if weight loss is your ultimate goal). 

The book has over 70 recipes total but in addition to these our favorites so far are the Ground Beef Lasangna, Bacon & Onion Egg Muffins, and No Bake Caramel Bars (holy yum!!). We have a few new ones to try this week, and can't wait! 

Stay tuned - I plan to share my final thoughts tomorrow!
