This post is brought to you by our sponsor, “Always Eat After 7 PM”. The opinions expressed below are my own. This is my first post with 3 follow-up posts to come later.


  Last year I decided to challenge myself and I recommitted myself with my fitness routine to gain some strength in my body. It was a fitness conference that made me realize that my muscles in my arms and core were weak. It was also a body assessment test, that I had at the conference, which made me aware that my visceral fat level was not healthy.  So I decided last July to start incorporating weights into my fitness routine as I wanted to develop stronger muscles. I realized that I needed better muscle strength to keep my body strong as I aged. I was not going to let my age be an excuse for a weak body. So this 54-year-old lady got serious in the gym with the weights. After 6 months, I was amazed at the muscle strength that I had and I was more amazed at the changes I saw in my stomach muscles. You can see my before and after stomach photos Here. I was finally starting to lose some of that stubborn weight in my belly, from giving birth to five kids but it was not that much. I was seeing some changes in my "muffin top" and that was a good thing but I want to lose all the fat that could be putting me at risk for heart problems.



Visceral fat is the type that collects around our organs and raises the risk of hypertension, heart disease, and diabetes. Subcutaneous fat is just under the skin and is responsible for “spare tires” and “muffin tops.”

Now, don't get me wrong but I am proud of this body that grew babies but my middle section was putting me at risk for heart disease. I simply had too much visceral fat in my stomach and along with a family history of high cholesterol, I had to do something so I could avoid a heart attack. While my fitness routine was helping me lose some inches in my gut, I decided to step up my nutritional plan so I could gain control and lose the "spare tire" fat in my stomach so I would not be at risk for heart problems. I decided to follow a food plan that lets me enjoy food as I like eating. I do not like diets that have food restrictions, calorie counting, or ones that tell me what time I can eat. So I decided to follow a meal plan that allowed me to eat after 7PM and enjoy huge dinners, desserts, and snacks. I have been wanting to get serious about shedding that fat in my belly, so I jumped at the chance to receive an advance copy of Always Eat After 7 PM” by Joel Marion. Over the next month, I’ll be sharing my experience of the book and diet (and hopefully some awesome benefits!)

Conventional diet wisdom tells us we should avoid carbs, and have an early dinner, and never eat before bed. But the fact is, the latest scientific research just doesn’t bear this out.

After reading Jole Marion's book Always Eat After 7 PM, I felt confident that I could follow this three-phrase plan. This diet did not feel like a diet to me. The food plan had a very similar style to my current food plan as the book suggested types of foods that I already enjoy. The meal recipes were ones that I would enjoy like ORANGE SHRIMP AND NOODLES EN PAPILLOTE. I was actually excited to make the meal recipes. The book even had dessert recipes that were similar to some of the recipes I already make, like my recipe for Chocolate Dipped Salted Almond Butter Cookies. I did like the healthier ingredients in Joel's SALTED DARK CHOCOLATE–DIPPED PB COOKIES recipe and I will be making these cookies. I loved that I did not have to restrict my carbs or eliminate dessert. I could even have a bedtime snack on this diet. 

While Burning Fat Overnight, fitness expert, nutritionist, and bestselling author Joel Marion debunks the myths underlying traditional dieting and offers a simple, highly effective weight loss program.

   This program does not feel like a diet to me and that makes me happy. I am not a fan of diets as I am never able to stick with them for more than a day. Like most people, I enjoy food and willpower is not one of my strengths when it comes to food. I am glad that the Always Eat After 7PM program makes dieting easy and eliminates 90% of my excuses. I think the toughest part of this plan may be the 14-day Acceleration Phase that is the start of the program but I will try hard to stick with the program so I can see the rapid results. 



The Always Eat After 7 PM plan consists of three phases:
 1. The 14-day Acceleration Phase to kick-start the program and see rapid results
 2. The Main Phase where you’ll learn exactly which foods to eat when in order to achieve your 
 3. The Lifestyle Phase to keep the weight off for good

 Over the next month, I’ll be sharing my experience of the book and diet (and hopefully some awesome benefits!) In the meantime, check out this video on Joel’s top tips for success.

 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 so you too can follow the program with me.

  17. You're definitely in the majority when you say that you have a hard time sticking to a diet! So many people struggle with that because most diets are so incredible restricting. I love the idea of a program like this that allows you to actually enjoy your food rather than constantly cutting out everything that you enjoy. Thanks for sharing!
