You may have caught that I planned on beginning the Always Eat After 7 PM book by Joel Marion last week. So far my new diet is going well! Thankfully, prior to the Covid19 outbreak, I received a PDF version of the book so that I could dig right in while I waited for the advanced copy to arrive in the mail…which believe me, I know it’s cheating, BUT hey, what else did we all have to do while we were stuck at home for months on end? I could only watch Tiger King so many times, folks!
Losing Weight With Always Eat After 7 PM by Joel Marion
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 is now available to purchase.
What is the big deal about eating after 7 PM? Well, based on science, Always Eat After 7 PM debunks the top trendy diet myths and offers an easy-to-follow diet that speeds up the fat-burning process and allows you to indulge in your cravings and eat the majority of your calories at nighttime. We’ve been taught to avoid carbs, have an early dinner, and never eat right before we go to bed. However, scientific research shows that this is not always such a great idea and provides a step by step plan for changing the way you eat!
Always Eat After 7 PM by Joel Marion has 3 phases in the program that teaches you how to lose weight by strategically eating big when you are naturally hungriest, which is in the evening…It’s all about making strategic and smart food swaps, and you can still eat your favorite foods! 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. 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
In an interview with author Joel Marion, he had this to say:
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?

I was excited to start this program because not only do I usually follow a low carb diet plan and have been struggling to lose 20 lbs that I gained last year…but I have suffered from insomnia for YEARS. I have struggled with insomnia for most of my life, to be honest. To lose weight AND to sleep better? I signed up as quickly as I could! You can read more about that here.
“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.”
So far I have lost a total of 10 pounds following the Always Eat After 7 PM phase 1 and I am in Phase 2 now. I am also working out on my elliptical-style glider 5-6 days a week, for an hour most days. Sometimes I only do 30 minutes, but I am trying! I began dieting and exercising at the beginning of April and 10 pounds is a great start! I have about 10 pounds to get back to my starting weight from last year, and then an additional 5 pounds to get to my goal weight of 115. I am also sleeping a bit better, as I am eating around 8-9 PM before I go to bed! I have been supplementing with melatonin as well, so I am definitely sleeping better because of the change in my eating habits. I went from sleeping in 1-2 hour spurts to sleeping 4-6 hours straight each nice. I feel so much more rested! I am making big progress and I am really excited about these changes!
