Hey y’all! It’s me again! I wanted to keep everyone updated on Josh and I’s results! If you haven’t been following along, we have been taking my readers on our weight loss journey. Click here and here for my previous two posts about our journey.
We are both feeling great and have lost inches and our clothes are fitting better as the weeks go on! We are loving the easy meal planning, dinners together and some of the yummiest dessert recipes that we have indulged in while sticking to this diet.
We have both noticed that we feel less hungry throughout the day and when we do eat, we are eating healthier options. Our favorite quote that has proved to be true is this one:
“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.”
We are enjoying all of the meal options and our entire family is loving when we make the Cheesy Ground Beef skillet and the fruit tarts. The dessert options are fabulous and we are loving this program so much that we can already tell that this will be a lifestyle change that we will be able to stick to.
We are also sleeping better, as we were hoping would happen. One of my favorite quotes in the book is this one: “A research paper published in Sports Medicine in 2014 showed that people who eat the majority of their carbs at dinner actually sleep better. Carb-induced, quality sleep decreases cortisol (a fat-storing hormone) and ramps up the production of your sleep hormones, serotonin and melatonin. Restorative sleep increases fat-burning hormones—the main one being growth hormone—overnight.”
This is proving true for the both of us and we are so excited that we have both been sleeping better as well as burning fat and haven’t felt this good in a long time!
