I have several friends that have lost a lot of weight in the last year using low carb diets only to gain some of it right back during quarantine. It upset them so much that their hard work went to waste when their life became more sedentary and they ordered in more due to being stuck at home. I want a diet that works with me as person. I am glad I decided to take the Always Eat After 7 PM Challenge based on the book 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. I want a diet that works with my lifestyle that helps me instead of chastising me. Plus I really like carbs and I found it hard to give them up.
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.
According to Always Eat After 7 PM, avoiding carbs can have an adverse effect. I have Hashimotos and have a very slow metabolism already. I wanted a diet to help me get more energy and also lose weight. I feel so much better lately.
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, and The Lifestyle Phase to keep the weight off for good.
I am still the Main Phase. I want to make sure I am doing all the right things before I move on. I do not want to go back to snacking all the time and feeling tired. The most challenging times to curb hunger are just before bed and in the morning. By following the Always Eat After 7PM program, you have the most willpower to stay on the diet because you are eating during the hours when you are most hungry. This also puts you into both intermittent fasting increasing testosterone and your metabolism, while putting you into ketosis. So I am working on that and asking my work friends to start doing intermittent fasting with me!
I have been writing down recipes and reading excerpts out loud at work. When I get to the Lifestyle phase I can have larger portions and cheat days. Which is awesome. I am not huge into big meals. I have always been a snacker so this has been a big change for me. But I feel so much lighter. Not just like my weight but my attitude. I feel healthier. And I like it so much I want to share about and I want other people to try it.
Take a look back at the last three weeks that I have been doing the challenge.
