Been wondering if anybody in the community has experienced this phenomenon when going OMAD.
I really enjoy not having to eat breakfast or lunch, and just worry about dinner meal. I do OMAD weekdays, and am more liberal with my feeding window (usually a 16:8 or 14:10) on weekends.
What I notice, though, is that when I have my OMAD… I really cannot be stopped. The green light switches, and all bets are off. I feel little satiety, and find myself cooking, snacking as I cook, to picking at cheese and nuts / yogurt after the meal, and usually some peanut butter / keto treat as well. Mentally, I allow this because I have fasted all day but I know it is not helping me progress… my weight has slowly crept up.
Just wondering - does anybody have tips on how to control the ‘refeed’ / ‘binge’? Setting hard limits on carbs should cover this behaviour, but I need a way to ‘shut off’ the appetite once I’ve had my meal. I want to decide “I’m finished” and stop wandering back to the fridge for a little something else.
Thoughts? Experiences? Thanks for sharing!
