This post is brought to you by our sponsor, “Always Eat After 7 PM”. The opinions expressed below are my own. Check out Week 1 !
Those of you that have been following me for awhile know that a few years ago I lost a bunch of weight and was really focused on my health and fitness. I fell off of the wagon and I need to kick start that process so this came at the right time! (woop woop) Catch up by checking out my first post about this! This time is a great time for me to reset and continue to develop healthier eating habits and create a routine that works for my creative lifestyle!
The research behind “Always Eat After 7 PM” by Joel Marion”, is very precise and clear! Joel talked about this in some questions:
Q3: What was the most surprising discovery when you were researching scientific data for the diet? A: That almost everything my college education and certifications taught me was NOT grounded in published scientific research.
Wow, this was big. For Joel to really break this down and talk about his own education is very transparent and helps me understand how passionate he is about the book and plan! Digging deeper into this book and finding out that the majority of what we are taught about diets are false makes me look at things so much differently.
(My eyes are opened yall) “Research shows that the average person’s metabolic rate is no different during sleep than during the day. In short, your metabolism doesn’t slow down at night. Nor does your body store fat at the end of the day. Whether it’s 8 am or 8 pm, you use food for energy the same way.”’
As a creative sometimes I find myself eating later in the evening because I usually stay up late and feel more awake and creative at night! (I’m always burning the midnight oil) It’s so good to know that I wasn’t necessarily sabotaging myself.
“We’ve been traditionally taught to avoid carbs, have an early dinner, and never eat before bed. But the fact is, the latest scientific research shows us this earlier model is not the most ideal”
With Always Eat After 7 PM I’m now understanding that it’s about WHAT I eat that makes all the difference.
Joel broke it down EVEN more here:
Q4: You’re a six-time best selling author, what is different about this book compared to your others?
A: 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.
This is going to get good guys, with my schedule this will be a game changer for managing my food intake! I’m excited to see my results and how I will feel in the next few weeks! Learn more about the book and how to purchase here
