Taking charge of MY own story!

Today, I want to introduce you to a revolutionary concept. Before I do, I need to tell you something very important! This post is brought to you by my sponsor, “Always Eat After 7PM”. As always, I’m going to keep it real; so the opinions expressed below are most certainly my own.

A couple of blog posts ago, I shared about some growing pains that I have been experiencing. I recently discovered a book called Always Eat After 7PM: The Revolutionary Rule-Breaking Diet That Lets You Enjoy Huge Dinners, Desserts, and Indulgent Snacks—While Burning Fat Overnight by Joel Marion. One of the hardest parts of trying to modulate my behaviors is changing my diet. Why WOULDN’T a title like this peak my interest? The ultimate overall goal is to be healthier. In case you weren’t aware, there is a huge disproportion in the health issues of African Americans. I am under the impression that I am ultimately healthy right now. But the goal is to always be making efforts to become the best version of myself. That is a goal that we should all be working to attain!

What sparks my interest?

To continue, I am a millennial mother of one. I would love to have more energy to better keep up with my extremely high energy child . I especially want to be prepared for whenever we decide to have another. As I mentioned in my Growing Pains blog post, I also want to lose weight. I believe that I have been doing a phenomenal job of loving myself in all my phases. Now that my time in vet school has come to a close, it is time to be a woman of my word. It’s time to make the changes that I said I would!

Now, let me tell you all about Always Eat After 7PM! My favorite part about it is that it debunks so many popular dieting myths! It does this prior to detailing an easy-to-follow diet that accelerates fat-burning. The diet also allows you to indulge in your most intense food cravings. I don’t know about you, but as a person who tries to optimize how much I get done during the day, I most certainly will forgo eating if it allows me to continue being productive. I also would not mind eating the majority of my calories at night. And that is EXACTLY what this book encourages!!

Here is a great example of what I’m talking about!

 “Research shows that the average person’s metabolic rate is no different during sleep than during the day. In short, your metabolism doesn’t slow down at night. Nor does your body store fat at the end of the day. Whether it’s 8 am or 8 pm, you use food for energy the same way.”

You don’t have to take my word for it, watch and listen for yourself!

Now that you’re on board, because I know that you are, I challenge you to follow this three-phase plan with me! Oh, did I forget to mention that following this plan can help boost your metabolism AND induce deep sleep? How silly of me! Sleep is life!We deserve to sleep deeply so that we can forgive our loved ones for being so annoying during the day! (Is that just me? Eh, my bad.) I think that now is as good a time as any to encourage you to learn about the book and how to purchase it here .  

Just to say it louder for the people in the back: This post has been brought to you by my sponsor, “Always Eat After 7PM”, but obviously the opinions expressed below are my own.
