Why I Now Eat One Meal A Day (OMAD)
I usually only eat one meal a day, this is referred to as OMAD. Edward from Fledge Fitness is making a guest appearance today to speak about the power of OMAD.
What Is OMAD?
Eating one meal a day is a form of intermittent fasting. Intermittent fasting is simply changing the period of your eating so that you’re intermittently fasting.
The length of thee fast each day dictates the title or “type” of fasting. For example, the most popular type of fast is referred to as 16:8, which involves 16 hours fasting and 8 hours of feeding.
The warrior diet involves 20:4, so 20 hours fasted and 4 hours eating.
Why Should You Eat One Meal A Day?
One meal a day, or OMAD is one meal per day. Generally, this is within a 1-2 hour bracket. It’s a more extreme form of fasting.
Regardless of it being more “extreme” and making it easier to lose fat due to the difficulty in consuming all your necessary calories on 1-2 hours, it’s not any better or worse than normal “diets” or other schedules of fasting.
As always, it comes down to what you’re eating and how much of it.
Calories, macronutrients, micronutrients, meal timing (fasting), supplements are always the hierarchy of needs you should adhere to.
If you want you can try to mad out if you’re struggling to lose weight or simply for the challenge of self-discipline and self-control.
