Most people following OMAD choose to only consume dinner, although others choose breakfast or lunch as their one meal. The science on intermittent fasting and time-restricted eating is growing, seemingly on a weekly basis. When I started researching the One Meal a Day Diet sometimes referred to OMAD, it was the simplicity that drew me to the plan: You eat one meal per day, consisting of whatever you want, typically at your regular dinnertime. Examples include having just one meal and fasting for the rest of the day or having one meal and eating limited amounts of food during fasting periods.
My name is Amanda Piotrowski alwaystryingamanda, and I am 30 years old. I live in Florence, Kentucky, and am a general manager at a restaurant. It was always a struggle for me to lose weight. I tried over and over again with no substantial success. I love food, and I love junk food even more. At my heaviest weight I was pounds. My weight also impacted my health. I had high blood pressure that I needed medicine for. I was also previously diagnosed with uterine cancer and was told my weight could have played a part in that as well.
You could eat pizza and burgers every day, drink beer, and still lose weight — but is it a good idea? When I started researching the One Meal a Day Diet sometimes referred to OMAD, it was the simplicity that drew me to the plan: You eat one meal per day, consisting of whatever you want, typically at your regular dinnertime. However, the OMAD is really just an extreme variant of intermittent fasting or a more hardcore cousin of the Warrior Diet. The difference between OMAD and traditional fasting is instead of fasting for the typical window, like 16 hours, you fast for about 23 hours including the time you spend sleeping. Most people cringe at the thought of missing a single meal. Intentionally missing all but one meal, every day, seems excessive and unnecessary.
