You can always count on me to be brutally honest when it comes to health and fitness tips. That is why I feel it necessary to finish out my Always Eat After 7PM with some final thoughts about the book and the theories Joel Marion lays out in his book.

First things first:

Each individual is different. I have never been a believer that one particular diet will work for everyone. That is why I am going to tell you some of the key things to expect from Always Eat After 7PM so that you aren’t surprised when you read the book. This will give you a chance to decide if this is right for you. 

Here is an explanation of some of the myths Joel Marion busts and how they really work. 

MYTH: EATING FOOD AFTER 7 pm MAKES YOU FAT.

Joel does an excellent job of busting this myth with science based evidence.

“Late-night eating also curbs calorie intake the next day. In a four-week study, dieters added a snack to their daily regimen 90 minutes after dinner every night, and check this out: late-night eaters ate an average of 397 fewer calories per day.”


Now before you get too excited about this I want to give you a probably obvious heads up. Just because you can eat after 7PM this doesn’t mean you can eat just anything. Skip the cookies and chips and grab some berries and yogurt instead. Not quite as fun, but it will leave you feeling better in the end.

MYTH: EATING CARBS AFTER 7 pm PACKS ON POUNDS.

Carbs are not discouraged in Always Eat After 7PM. But you can’t go crazy on just any carbs. 

“Specific higher-carbohydrate foods (including berries and cherries) support your fat-burning metabolism while you sleep, providing your body with a steady stream of fuel throughout the night. The trick is knowing how to combine them with other evening and pre-bedtime fat-burning foods to fuel your metabolism as you sleep.”  

Are you a breakfast skipper?

If so this might be the perfect book for you. Always Eat After 7PM highly encourages intermittent fasting. That is one of the reasons this book appealed to me. I am rarely hungry in the mornings so this was an easy sell. 

As you are looking for a diet just remember to find a diet that will easily fit with your lifestyle. You will want to find a diet that you can make tweaks to your current lifestyle to give yourself the boost that you need to drop some pounds. If you are a breakfast skipper, a late night snacker and don’t want to give up carbs, Always Eat After 7PM might be a good fit for you.

  1. Interesting point. I try to avoid eating after 7PM, but I am not obsessive about it. However I am always willing to make exceptions.

  2. This is such an interesting read. I’ve always been told that eating after 7pm is bad for you but this has reassured me! Especially because I’m not a big breakfast eater either!

  3. We go to bed early to get up at 5 a.m. so we don’t usually eat after 7 p.m. However, I do like the premise of intermittent fasting–I may have to read this book and adjust the times to suit our life.

  4. onedigitalspace – Olongapo, Zambales – Hello, this is your number One Digital Space. You can contact me through email.

    Another read for me about a thought on this book. Thank you for your insight, I am adding this to my list.

  5. I really need to try this out. It’s so hard for me to believe that eating after 7 won’t cause me to gain weight. My brain will need to be re-trained for this new idea!

  6. This seems to fit well with my eating habits. I never feel hungry in the morning and often end up eating quite late. I always thought that I have bad eating habits so I am really grateful for this article, it explains so much!

  7. Thank you for those insights !
    I’m a breakfast skipper so like you’ve said eating after 7PM will be a good fit for me.

  8. hmm…that’s very intriguing because I always thought I should eating after 6 or before going to bed. And according to intermittent fasting practice, skipping breakfast helps you burn your stored fat…

  9. There is a big misconception about breakfast and the purpose behind, as “the most important meal of the day”. That may have been the case a few decades or centuries ago, where most people worked in industries that required physical labor. Whether you enjoy intermittent fasting or any other approach, breakfast may be the least important meal of the day.

  10. Just when I think I know how to eat, I read something else that changes my mind! lol I always end up eating after 7 though, but yes – a healthy snack, drop the cookies!

  11. Polly – Philippines – Hey there! I’m Polly Amora, a global citizen who’s endlessly curious about diverse cultures, rich histories, and thrilling escapades. By day, I’m the GM of an SME in Manila, a furmom 24/7. I am a lifelong learner who is very outgoing, speaks four languages, loud & outspoken, and loves to have adventures in the mountains, on the beach, and in the city. You can throw me anywhere, and I'll handle it like a pro. Ice cream and bourbon are two of my weaknesses.

    Very insightful. I’m careful when it comes to diet – both food & schedule and I’m a bit surprised at what I just read now. Though sometimes I’m guilty of eating too much sweets & chips specially on my ‘cheat days’. Glad to know all of these and would love to learn more.

    Very interesting perspective. I used to do intermittent fasting and actually would wait until after 7:30 pm to eat a meal. This was a great read !

  13. girltimewithaliyat

    I need to stop playing around and just get this book already. I’ve heard so many interesting things about it, I definitely want to give it try. Thanks for sharing.

  14. quichentell01 – Mumbai – My attitude is that if you push me towards something that you think is a weakness, then I will turn that perceived weakness into a strength. I'm a cook, blogger and culinary hedonist born with wheels on my feet.

    What an amazing concept this is and you totally broke the myth of not having food after 7 Pm thank you for this amazing blog that you have shared with us, I will surely pass this on with my friends and family as well for their reference.
