OMAD (One Meal A Day - Intermittent Fasting) is incredible and totally changed my relationship with food! I always thought I had to eat 3 meals a day because that’s how I was taught by society. I realize now that with the abundance of food, it is almost IMPOSSIBLE to lose weight or even MAINTAIN your weight by following a 3 meals a day lifestyle. By following OMAD for over a year, now I have lost over 70lbs, I feel good! I don’t feel restricted. I can eat almost anything I want as long as it fits in my daily caloric needs. For maintenance I make it fit the calories I need in a day and for weight loss I subtract that number by 500 to be eating at a caloric deficit.
I no longer feel like I have to eat a bunch of tiny unfilling 300 calorie meals 4-5 x a day that makes me lethargic and feeling deprived. Instead I can eat one big delicious, filling meal once a day that keeps me full, and happy until dinner time tomorrow!
How do you feel about OMAD?
