Wow, you eat vegs alone? Okay, I did that in the past (I could eat basically anything alone), I almost forgot about that…
Sounds good but I rather meant the amounts, you should eat the right amount of food. But you should know/feel better how much you need, it’s quite individual. I am lucky as if I don’t eat enough for one meal, I just get hungry later. But some people easily undereat. And you don’t have much extra fat to get energy from it, a smaller fat reserve can’t give as much per day as a bigger one.
I consider it my only chance to lose fat (if I exercise a lot too) and get healthier mentally too (I mean only my relationship with food. and it’s convenient not to eat “all day”. I rarely can do TMAD) but I don’t consider it a good idea for many. It’s quite individual.
But if your proper meal is 1500-2000 kcal and your energy need isn’t much higher, OMAD just sounds the only way or close, you know… I don’t have the huge self control or focus to ensure I don’t overeat when I don’t do OMAD. So of course it is a great idea for fat-loss (and chill, I want perfect satiation all day and OMAD has the best chances for it by far) for some of us.
It’s such a bother to think about how much and what should I eat for my first and second meal, I am still lost after years! OMAD immediately solves this problem. I eat whatever and as much as I want, it’s nice. It just doesn’t always give me a proper sized meal on carnivore for some reason. Or if it does, I eat too early so I get hungry later anyway. But my OMAD days are the best and I probably mostly lose fat on those days (and gain it back on my non-OMAD ones when I overeat).
Many things are normal We are all so wonderfully different. I am a natural intermittent fasted but not a natural OMADer. But it’s quite fine for me to go for OMAD as I eat way too much, lose too much time and potentially need to be hungry without it. I am against forcing these things, a tiny push or a better plan to ensure it comes almost naturally may be the best we do. A tiny push in my case involves stuffing myself Just comfortably Without it I easily get hungry one hour after my already not small meal (like 1200-1500 kcal). But it’s me, obviously our OMAD is quite different. For me, timing means a lot. I like to eat at the time when I comfortably eat an OMAD sized meal but it’s close enough to my bedtime not to get hungry later (~8 hour before bedtime is perfect for me). The problem arises when I get hungry way earlier…
Maybe I shouldn’t have talk this much about my OMAD but maybe it’s interesting for someone.
