Part I of this book discusses the "why" we should eat after 7 pm. It tackles a number of the myths we've heard over the years and back up the assertions with real scientific research and observation over time.
I've been dealing with hormonal issues for years now and that plays a significant role in my inability to keep weight off. I'm sure many of you have the same feeling I havel which is I can pack on 7 lbs in 1 week but can barely lose 1 lb in the same time frame! Or if I do lose weight, it comes back pretty quickly. The writer Joe Marion provides strategies and tips to help lose weight quickly and safely. And what's more, it's suitable for long term because it's a lifestyle not just a diet. "All the strategies are safe to use even long term as a lifestyle diet that can help you live long and fight of many of today's most deadly diseases."
Chapter 2 is dedicated to the "truth about breakfast." I have always heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I have grown up with that and in fact, breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. I never paid attention to where that information came from but I accepted it as fact anyways. This chapter pulls back the curtain on the truth about the times we eat and how it affects the body. A recent study in the British Medical Journal found that among the participants, "Those who ate breakfast ended up eating about 260 calories more a day... Those who skipped breakfast were about one pound lighter than those who ate breakfast." I decided to incorporate intermittent fasting into my journey and over the last 6 days, I started skipping breakfast and eating my first meal at about 12 noon.
Always Eat Author Questions and Answers
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?
