Setting & Meeting Weight Loss Goals


I'm at the start of the third week of this challenge. As I move forward, the new 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 continues to be my daily guide for improving eating habits for the better. 

It's been an amazing ride so far. I'm happy to share that while I am still enjoying delicious food, thanks to this easy to stick with diet with lots of tasty options, my personal weight loss project is progressing with a total of 5 pounds lost during the first 14 days (the acceleration phase of this particular eating program). This brings me halfway to my ultimate goal of losing 10 pounds. 

This book includes a simple straight forward Sample Meal Plan grid with specific ideas that vary over 30 days for exactly what to eat at each meal. This is great for someone who is game to undergo a meal program that doesn't require you to make many choices since the menus are all there for you and all you have to do is buy the proper ingredients to cook and bake all your own meals at home. 


Delicious Healthy Menu Options


However, I personally don't eat pork, shellfish or much meat and instead prefer only a few types of fish, vegetarian and vegan dishes. So, being the free spirit that I am, instead I found it rather simple to use Marion's Meal Plan Template found on page 71 which outlines serving sizes of protein, non-starchy vegetables and fats that are recommended to be included in each lunch, dinner, healthy dessert and pre-bedtime fat-burning snack meal. 

Then, relying on the guidelines in the book's template, I custom design my own menus. This has been a breeze since all I have to do is make sure to choose from the permitted food list of protein, super carbs, fresh fruit, vegetables, and fats options on pages 40-41.

Marion explains the logic behind his diet plan, "Fact is most diets are extremely narrow with regard to food choices and variety, and many even limit entire macronutrients altogether over the course of the entire program (think low-carb and low-fat diets). Three months with no carbs? No thanks. Such practices not only are entirely unnecessary, but make for a miserable, unsustainable experience."

Dozens of mouthwatering easy-to-prepare recipes with beautiful photos of each dish are included with this book, like the Chili-Loaded Baked Potato you see pictured at the top of this post. Among other appetizing, healthy recipes you'll also find in Always Eat After 7 PM are delectable desserts for chocolate lovers, including the Salted Dark Chocolate-Dipped Peanut Butter Cookies you see below which I baked and photographed for this post.

I am really curious to see how many people could manage and sustain the lost weight after following the rule in this book. We need a study!

Those cookies came out great. I love peanut butter as an ingredient and have tried the Chili Loaded Baked Potato (so delicious). I'm finding that eating this way has been more natural for me and I'm glad your progress is going so well.

I really want to read this book. I have always been told it's not good to eat after 7 and now there's an entire book out there saying it could be good for me? Definitely checking it out.

I keep seeing this book and it has intrigued me. I like that it doesn't necessarily limit what you eat, just when.

I just heard of this book so I'm already thinking it's going on my list to buy! Seems like it's a good time to put these principle concepts to work right now as people are at home and able to put their health as a priority.
