My journey Part 3.. My new diet...

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

If you have been with me for awhile, you know about my heart attack back in 2017. If not you can catch up HERE and HERE

Since September 2019 I have been trying a few different diets, but I haven't been able to find one that really works for me in all aspects. Some call for special food, some are just too expensive to maintain and some involve a ton of calculations. I was not loosing any weight with most of them, especially since I always had to cook separate meals for the kids.

I ended up gaining 3 more pounds over the course of 5 months, so I was maintaining my weight but I needed to loose, and I always felt like I was starving! So I jumped at the chance to receive and advanced copy of  Always Eat After 7 PM: The Revolutionary Rule-Breaking Diet That Lets You Enjoy Huge Dinners, Desserts, and Indulgent Snacks—While Burning Fat Overnight by Joel Marion.  Over the next month, I will be sharing my experiences with the book and the diet.

 The Always Eat After 7 PM plan consists of: The 14-day Acceleration Phase to kick-start the program and see rapid results, The Main Phase where you’ll learn exactly which foods to eat when in order to achieve your weight-loss goals, The Lifestyle Phase to keep the weight off for good.

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 

I've been actively trying to loose 80 pounds, so far I've been maintaining the weight; no loss. I can't keep doing the things that I am doing and not loosing the weight. So I sat down to read the book. Right off the bat Joel begins addressing all my concerns. I have always been told, even at a young age, to never eat after 6-7 pm, always leave lots of time between your last meal and bedtime so that the food doesn't just turn into fat overnight. Joel includes studies and research, so you know that it's not all made up! This really got me hooked: 

A research paper published in Sports Medicine in 2014 showed that people who eat the majority of their carbs at dinner actually sleep better. Carb-induced, quality sleep decreases cortisol (a fat-storing hormone) and ramps up the production of your sleep hormones, serotonin and melatonin. Restorative sleep increases fat-burning hormones—the main one being growth hormone—overnight.

As a mother to teens, I am normally on the go most of the day; so I can't really eat big meals in the hours that are advised. So being able to eat the majority of my carbs at night is perfect for me! I'm extremely excited to dive in and I'll post an update in about a week, so stay tuned!

In the meantime, check out this video on the science behind the diet.

 So head over and check out the book, and maybe join me on my journey!
