Over the years, I’ve tried a fad diet or seven. And they always seem to leave me hungry, unsatisfied, and lethargic. Sticking with them is always impossible!
When I began 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 a few weeks ago, I was surprised by how much this diet was unlike anything I’d ever tried.
We’ve been traditionally taught to avoid carbs, have an early dinner, and never eat before bed. But the fact is, the latest scientific research shows us this earlier model is not the most ideal.
One of the key components of Always Eat After 7pm is intermittent fasting. I was a little nervous about trying it out, but adjusted very quickly. I found that I was less hungry overall, and enjoyed my meals more. I snacked less. I felt more full. And my energy didn’t take a deep dive in the afternoons.
“Intermittent fasting really shines when it comes to improving the hormones that directly affect your hunger, blood sugar, and metabolism. One is insulin. IF combats insulin resistance, meaning that it helps your body use insulin more normally, thereby lowering your diabetes risk and boosting your metabolism.”Joel Marion, Author, Always Eat After 7pm
Eating at Night
The most challenging times to curb hunger are just before bed and in the morning. By following the Always Eat After 7PM program, you have the most willpower to stay on the diet because you are eating during the hours when you are most hungry.
This also puts you into both intermittent fasting increasing testosterone and your metabolism, while putting you into ketosis.
I enjoyed being able to have large and delicious dinners like my favorite Chili-Loaded Baked Potato. I made late night snacks like Joel’s Cherry Garcia Ice Cream. I felt interested in my meals in a way I hadn’t in a long time. And getting to play around in the kitchen to find better alternatives was a lot of fun!
And I enjoyed that after the first two weeks or the “Accelerated Phase” I could include a cheat meal every week and still enjoy other foods I love. The three phases of “Always Eat After 7pm” make it flexible and easy to stay on track.
The Three Phases of Always Eat After 7pm Are:

My Always Eat After 7pm Results and Non-Scale Victories
During my time on this program I lost 11.4 lbs. For me this was a great result, but due to an unhealthy relationship with the scale over the years, I prefer to measure my success based on Non-Scale Victories.
- I enjoyed more energy especially in the late afternoon. Normally, I would crash around 3pm. While on the Always Eat After 7pm plan, I said goodby to my afternoon crash and occasional nap.
- I was able to wear my favorite jean shorts that were too tight a month ago.
- Better sleep lead to more energy. It became easier to get up and get moving in the morning. It was so nice to have a blast of energy and tackle chores hands on.
Overall, Always Eat After 7pm worked pretty well for me. I enjoyed intermittent fasting and plan to continue to incorporate it into my routine. I enjoyed the recipes a lot and will definitely be keeping a few in my weekly rotation!
