We're eating after 7 PM now

I’ve talked about my body issues a lot in the past. My honesty about my experience and continued struggles has cost me relationships I’ve had my entire life but it was imperative to talk about.
We need more radical honesty when it comes to body issues because maybe we wouldn’t have so many issues in the future if we could all stop showing a highlight reel.
As a former cheerleader and dancer, I frequently ate late growing up. Dinner at 8/9 PM wasn’t uncommon for me. I was told that my eating habits were wrong by the media and I started stressing about dinner time.
If dinner wasn’t on the table by 6, I’ve failed my family. I failed my husband. I failed my kids. I failed my community. I failed myself.
I would find myself literally fighting with my husband about what time he got home because dinner would be impacted. We COULD NOT eat late. With my husband being an essential worker, dinner is rarely consistent. At least for my hubs and I.
It was ingrained in my head. A habit I couldn’t shake. I simply replaced some unhealthy eating habits with other obsessive eating habits.
Then, I found Joel Marion’s 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.
It truly changed how I feel about dinner time.
In the book, Marion says, “Always Eat After 7 pm is a three-phase program that teaches you how to lose big by strategically eating big when you are naturally hungriest in the evening. This may sound too good to be true, but let me assure you it is no gimmick. It’s all about making strategic and smart food swaps, and you can still eat your favorite foods.”
Every person out there shuns you for eating late but after running around with the kids, dogs, and working all day, 8/9 PM, I’m starving. I’m pretty terrible about eating during the day.
It’s actually one thing I learned about myself this month once I started tracking my food habits. I was eating less than a thousand calories a day and a larger portion of them happened at night. I was feeling so terrible and kept trying to force myself to eat all day and it was so hard.
Part of my food struggle comes from having Hashimotos, an auto-immune disorder impacting my thyroid. It felt like I always invisible to online nutritionists. No one understood me. Until Joel.
“Avoiding carbohydrates and restricting calories later in the day can have an adverse effect on your thyroid hormones, which play a major role in metabolism. When the thyroid fails to secrete enough of the hormones that control metabolism, this can trigger symptoms like fatigue, depression, weight gain, thinning hair, and dry skin.”
Hello a majority of the issues I face.
I’m excited to document the next month with trying a new way of thinking, eating and feeling.
