Anyone else wish they could boost their metabolism? I have always searched for ways to improve it and also find the best diet. We know that I run a lot and I eat relatively healthy, but keeping weight off is HARD for me. It always has been really hard too. I learned about 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 and thought I would give it a try. I have heard a lot of intermittent fasting and wanted to learn more. This book offers so much information you should definitely give it a read.
This quote from Always Eat After 7PM really caught my attention, “Going without breakfast is part of intermittent fasting (IF), also called time-restricted feeding (TRF). IF is a pattern of food consumption that cycles between fasting and eating in specific time periods. There are various ways to do it; one of the most common is the 16/8 protocol, which involves 16 hours of fasting—typically done overnight—with an 8-hour window in which to eat each day.” This made sense to me and peaked my interest. I kept reading and learned more.
Did you know, “Intermittent fasting really shines when it comes to improving the hormones that directly affect your hunger, blood sugar, and metabolism. One is insulin. IF combats insulin resistance, meaning that it helps your body use insulin more normally, thereby lowering your diabetes risk and boosting your metabolism.” Lightbulb moment! This fits my eating pattern more naturally too.
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. Joel Marion’s Always Eat After 7PM program makes dieting easy and eliminates 90% of reasons for resistance.
I can’t wait to share my progress and thoughts with you while continue this journey.
