While the popularity of intermittent fasting keeps increasing, so does a more extreme version of this lifestyle – OMAD, which stands for One Meal A Day, is starting to gain traction in the nutrition world.
Compared to more popular fasting methods like 16/8 with 16 hours of fasting and 8 hours of eating window, OMAD diet means shrinking your eating to just 1 hour. During this hour, you’re allowed to consume all your day’s food and calories. You guessed it – that’s where the name One Meal A Day comes from.
Like other intermittent fasting schedules, OMAD is gaining popularity among people looking to lose weight and experience other benefits this eating pattern can bring.
Studies show that restricting your eating pattern to just one meal a day can not only help shed pounds but also boost metabolism, fight the effects of aging and increase productivity and focus. That’s why OMAD has become popular among celebrities like an entrepreneur Gary Vee and CEO of Twitter Jack Dorsey.
Nevertheless, a promise to lose weight is still why most people decide to embark on the One Meal A Day journey. Indeed, it might sound self-evident that restricting your food intake to just one meal a day should guarantee the number on a scale dropping.
Is that always the case?
Let’s look into the possible One Meal A Day weight loss results, OMAD success stories and the key elements to ensure you reach your weight goals.
