The Lifestyle Change That Encourages You to Eat

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

Here's the thing, as you may have noticed, I've been reading 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  and following the book's ideals of "Always Eat[ing] after 7PM" for a little bit now and I've learned to really love and adapt to it. I feel more energized and ready to take on my (almost) 4 year old and all her crazyness with my morning routine completed for the day. As I wake up, I meditate, I workout, and I'm starting to journal. It's literally what I've needed, but never did for myself before. I snack at night, I enjoy desserts, I eat until I'm full and I'm happy. My weight is steady and that's literally all I've been trying to achieve.

I've also learned to cook a few new dishes and I've loved experimenting with the baking recipes too! There are SO many good dishes included in the book, but my favorites have to be the entrees. From tacos to pasta, they've got me covered with delicious recipes that will work for me overnight, helping my body to burn fat and ultimately helping me live a healthier, more productive life.

Overall I would say this is a lifestyle change, not a diet. This isn't a fad diet you can give up, this is different. What makes it different? It includes cheat days, it includes fats and carbs, it even includes doughnuts and discussing your feelings. This isn't just a way to weight loss, it's a way to a healthier body.

But another thing Joel said that stuck with me is "The past is the past; it’s over, and there’s nothing you can do to change it. The only thing you do have control over is the future, and the only moment that is relevant for creating the narrative that you desire for your future is the present moment." It's a great reminder that we are responsible for the here and now, we are the only one's in charge of our dietary needs, we are the one's choosing to make good decisions regarding our health... so from today forward, let's all choose to Eat After 7PM, but let's also choose to do it in a way that's going to benefit us in the long run!

What's included in those beneficial foods that we can be eating after 7pm? SO MANY TASTY THINGS! This book includes so many recipes your mind will be blown, it's a step by step guide to learning how to fuel your body, but it's also down-to-earth and a fun read. Get your copy here.
