My current status:
Started Sept 1 2018 Ketogenic (2/14/84) 458 pounds
Slowly moved to IF 12/12 then 18/6 now 20/4 and two days a week one meal.
Today 412 pounds
Now when I read about how many calories on OMAD I found the answer varies depending on:
1-If fat adapted or not
2-If attempting weight loss through extra fat stores or just keeping a baseline if there is little fat to use.
Specifically for my scenario where I am 100% fat adapted and have certainly plenty of available fat can I assume if my OMAD caloric intake is around 1000-1300 that the deficit remaining that comes from my fat stores able to maintain my metabolism rate on an ongoing basis? Understanding of course as I loose fat overtime it will slowly decline along as well regardless.
Like many I am fearful of loosing my high very high metabolism, which I assume is high as I continue to loose a pound per day for over 30 days now. I try to mix it up, for example today I am 18/6 and after eating to satiety I figure I had 2500 calories. Tomorrow will be 20/4 and Monday likely one meal, they 20/4 ect ect.
To be clear I do FEAST when its time for feasting and I am only water (with some salt as required) when fasting. My main goals are weight loss and leverage as much benefit from autophagy as possible (want to mitigate all that loose skin at the end) I do intend to do some longer fasts soon as well 5-7 days.
Any comment/advice to maintain my current progress would be appreciated.
