Dispatch Staff Report



Earlier this month, The Dispatch shared recipes from "Always Eat After 7 PM," by Joel Marion, CISSN, NSCA-CPT and five-time best-selling e-book author. While conventional wisdom calls for avoiding carbs, having an early dinner and avoiding eating too close to bedtime, Marion contends strategially eating during the evening hours can actually be an effective weight loss strategy. He offers a diet he says accelerates fat-burning and allows indulgence of most intense cravings by eating the majority of calories at night.


Consider this Coconut Curry Shrimp Rice Bowl recipe, which is taken directly from the book and combines a super carbohydrate -- rice -- with an ethnic flavor combination of coconut, shrimp and curry, which can keep you coming back for more and satisfy nighttime hunger without restriction.
