Intermittent Fasting for Weight Loss - Some Scientific Data

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

A little over a week ago I shared the first of my four-part series discussing intermittent fasting (you can find that post here) and how I was giving it a try.

Today, I want to tell you a little more about why I chose 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 which is now available to purchase.

I am a carb person. I have done the whole no carbs whatsoever before and while I did lose weight, I found it hard to stick with the plan and ultimately ended up gaining the weight back.

When I started this plan, I was in the throws of having gained back some of the weight I had lost almost 2 years ago and, due to the current life situations that many (most!?) of us have been in since March, I was anxious to plan for a better and brighter summer but did NOT want the added stress of a complicated program. That's why this plan was perfect for my needs and the goals I want to achieve.

This plan is easy to follow and gets results!

I'm also sharing a short Q&A (below) in this post with the bestselling author, Joel Marion.

Joel is a fitness expert and nutritionist debunking the myths underlying traditional dieting and offers a simple, highly effective weight loss program. 

Some Scientific Data

 “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.”

Author Questions and Answers:

 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.

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.

 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 7 pm works because it caters to our body's natural instincts.
