First time posting here…
Pre-pandemic, when on Keto, I was skipping breakfast most days anyway. I would just jump right into work and not bother with breakfast. Then I began working out around lunch time and stumbled into OMAD. While trying to figure out what was causing my abdominal pain (before I knew it was gallstones), did a couple 48 hour fasts without too much discomfort.
I am trying to get back on the wagon after a couple years not adhering to my Keto lifestyle. Now after gallbladder surgery I am trying to shed the 40 pounds I gained since mid 2018.
I know I need a plan in order to see results. So I was contemplating OMAD Monday & Tuesday then an extended fast from dinner on Tuesday through Thursday dinner or Friday dinner if I am feeling good. Then eating with my family 2 to 3 times a day over the weekend before starting the cycle over again on Monday. With the pandemic I usually only get in a good amount of exercise on the weekends, but not too much during the week.
I tend to be an all in kind of person and I thrive on seeing results. I believe that if I stay stay low carb and avoid snacking my insulin levels should stay low and therefore reduce the chance of my metabolism slowing. Is that too aggressive?
