Well, I still can have my few eggs with my 20+ oz meat when I mean business so I don’t worry about that Okay, I don’t have such meals every day, far from it but my protein is usually fine, be it OMAD or not.
I blame my last low-protein (adequate but barely and I am used to high), low-calories OMAD days on my meat aversion phase. But they were single days, it’s not like I could avoid high-protein if I tried…
But we will see what future will bring I take notes, OMAD on a simple woe is so easy to track.
Obviously OMAD isn’t for everyone. Not even for me in its pure form at the moment. But it’s still new, I will change my food choices, OMAD requires a different attitude from me. I don’t need to hold back so much anymore… (I never really did, that’s why I never lost fat except in my distant past before and between keto.)
But what does it matter if someone is a woman? A man can get enough protein from a single meal? How is that logical? There are some women who can eat just fine, thank you very much Maybe it’s some social thing I almost missed? Heard about things but they made no sense so ignored them.
But not every man eats big, protein rich meals either, far from it…
Okay I listened to her I usually just like to read but it was easy to listen to. I am not so good with spoken English but if people talk very well, it’s fine. So I understood most.
I am so glad I don’t have those cycle things. I need the same, I feel the same all the time. My fasting clearly doesn’t show any change. But of course people in podcasts must talk to the masses, not individuals. I still dislike generalized things. We can say it’s probably this or that but it’s individual, let’s follow our body if it’s trustable and communicative enough. Flexibility, she said. I agree, it’s very important. I never know if I will need 1 or 5 meals on some future day. I can make an educated guess for the very next day because I know how I ate today, I even can make a guess for the future but that’s not as reliable all the time. Carnivore changed me, sometimes play too much with my satiation and sometimes I needed 5 meals to avoid undereating, I couldn’t help that at all.
But I have a few fixed things.
She talked about 100g protein and that women doesn’t even eat that in a normal eating window, whatever that is. Well, I probably never in my life ate so little protein longer term so it’s not about me. And most women don’t even need that much, I guess. People eat less and gain muscles. Still, it’s good to be safe especially when we eat at a deficit or want to gain muscle (or if we are very hopeful, both :D). I think I build muscle now (it would be quite hard to see but I get stronger, hopefully it means extra muscles too, not just better spirit or brain-muscle relationship or whatever, I am not knowledgeable about that).
OMAD is just eating once, it can be 2000 kcal or 4000… If one can’t eat enough in their eating window, it doesn’t matter if it’s 1 meals or 6, they should eat more, size of eating window be damned!
I wonder what she would say to women doing OMEOD I wondered about that but my body and mind totally disagreed, I wouldn’t even try it. But it seems OMAD will be enough as long as I am strict enough with my food items to avoid eating too much. I have extra fat, the thin young active women she talked about, with their different past, abilities and goals may need something else, sure. But some of them probably are happy with their OMAD… I wouldn’t advise EF for them as they lack the fat reserves and probably would need it (but if they are smart and flexible, they would stop when their body would tell them that’s it) but OMAD sounds okay. But maybe not for a thin one, I don’t know. But I would expect a healthy body to fend for itself for 23 hours even without extra fat… Not in every cases but some…? Oh well, I don 't need to know that. Just that I go for OMAD as TMAD definitely doesn’t work well enough. It’s great for maintenance but I need to lose a lot of fat and 8-9 years was more than enough waiting especially with my stress gain a year ago. I very much dislike that.
And almost anything is great for maintenance for me. I am super good at stalling (that’s why the stress gain was shocking). I do almost anything and I stall (except now that I gain muscles, slowly but I do, I appreciate every micrograms!).
I’m sorry. I will take out the wifi card from my computer again. Writing instead of sleeping…
