I’ve been talking about 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 the last few weeks and it’s time for an update! This post is sponsored by Always Eat After 7 PM but as always, these opinions and thoughts are my own. You can see my previous posts here and here. This week I’m going to about how my healthy eating habits has turned into healthy habits for the whole family.
Last week I talked about how it took a few days to get used to Intermittent Fasting but soon became a habit.
“Going without breakfast is part of intermittent fasting (IF), also called time-restricted feeding (TRF). IF is a pattern of food consumption that cycles between fasting and eating in specific time periods. There are various ways to do it; one of the most common is the 16/8 protocol, which involves 16 hours of fasting—typically done overnight—with an 8-hour window in which to eat each day.”
What I like about skipping breakfast is that I feel alert and start my day out productive. I have more energy because I’m eating better so when I wake up I am ready to get my work out in. Eating late at night helps me sleep better as well. I feel awake and healthy instead of tired all the time.
Healthy Eating Habits Start Young
After my girls wake up I feed them breakfast and have my coffee or tea with collagen. Later in the day, I make lunch for myself and my girls. I find that because I’m eating better, so are they. I usually give them the same things I eat just in different proportions and sometimes with an added carb. They’re super great eaters and will usually eat whatever I make.
I also notice that as I’m following this diet it is essential that I make good meals for lunch and dinner. It makes such a big difference when you’re eating whole, real foods rather than processed and fast foods. I also notice that when my options are limited and my cupboards aren’t full of unhealthy foods that I typically make or reach for healthier snacks. Overall, we are all eating much healthier.
