Always Eat After 7PM: Week Two Check In

This post is brought to you by our sponsor, “Always Eat After 7 PM”. The opinions expressed below are my own. more than ever I feel like I need to be physically at my best. 2020 has been a source of mental and emotional exhaustion on many levels, and having the energy to combat it all physically feels like a necessity right now. A few weeks ago, I decided to read Always Eat After 7PM: The Revolutionary Rule Breaking Diet That Lets You Enjoy Huge Dinners, Desserts, and Indulgent Snacks - While Burning Fat Overnight by Joel Marion. I didn't realize then what great timing it would have entering my life.


You can read about a little bit about the book, the philosophy behind it, and why I decided to give it a go here. Today, I wanted to give a quick check in and share some highlights as to what I've read so far in case you are thinking of doing something similar, or are looking to change up your health routine.

Between packing, moving, keeping up with the kids, and the daily stressors/unknowns that are going on in our world right now - having a boost in energy and more physical strength has been quite literally a life savor.

The philosophy behind Always Eat After 7PM is basically to teach you how to look past all the diet myths you've learned over time, and rewire your eating habits to let your body work for you. Marion uses science based facts to show that eating the bulk of your calories later in the day is actually better for you. His plan is non-restrictive, and eliminates 90% of reasons for resistance. I was a little skeptical because all my life I've heard, "Don't eat late!", but this quote really made me stop and think...

“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.”

So, I threw out that myth and gave Always Eat After 7PM a whirl. I figured if it wasn't going to work, I would notice right away.

Personally, I've found it super easy to follow, and haven't felt restricted in the least. I've been able to sneak a workout in here and there, but with moving the last few weeks have left little free time for my usual at-home workouts. Any changes I've noticed in the last few weeks I've attributed to following the Always Eat After 7PM plan. It's been interesting to see (feel?). I'll share more results soon, but so far I'm loving the increase in energy I seem to have.


I thought it would be fun to introduce you a little more to best selling author and fitness expert Joel Marion - as well as share this quick interview from him. I'm the kind of person who likes to do a lot of research before diving into something new, so I thought this might help a few of you if you are thinking you need a little lifestyle change somehow too. 

Q1: 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.
 Q2: How long did it take for you to develop the diet?
It actually took several years of researching for me to discover the real science of eating late night. After a few years of tweaking and refining, I finally came up with a rapid fat loss solution that overcomes all the pitfalls of traditional diets.
Q3: What was the most surprising discovery when you were researching scientific data for the diet?
That almost everything my college education and certifications taught me was NOT grounded in published scientific research.
Q4: 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.
 Q5: 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.
Q6: If you had to describe yourself in three words, what would they be?
Born To Impact
