Depending on your height, age, and diet you could be carrying anywhere from 5 to 20 pounds of poop in your intestines.

Convenience for some. For others who are trying to lose weight, having a smaller eating window mean they'll eat more food in a shorter time period and it's easier for them to feel full vs spreading a small intake over the whole day.

Improves health (via certain bio-markers), perhaps helps with losing weight (through hormone regulation).

In my opinion if you have the mental strength to eat once a day and starve yourself then you should have the mental strength to consume a healthy diet with foods you enjoy in moderation.Supercooled wrote: ↑Jan 4th, 2018 1:22 amI know it seems that way but have you stopped and took a look at how we consume everything in great excess. Whether it's eating, drinking, buying, whatever. Body builders looked good in the 60s and 70s then they started using PEDs to look even bigger, pack on more muscle, etc. Watching people stuff their face even though they aren't hungry. Every day we do that too. Breakfast and then 3 hours later, we stuff ourselves again and then dinner at home. Snacking while winding down before bed. I'm not waxing poetic about obesity, but about over consumption of everything.
It is said that monks can go weeks without food. Christian Bale did it for the movie role of Machinist. These two examples share a commonality; they both have dedication. The people in here are doing the OMAD with success. You're not going to die eating less but it's not going to be easy adjusting. It's incredible how malleable our body and mind is if you just train it to do what you want.

To lose a little weight but to also work on self discipline. So many lack self discipline in today's world.toronto19850 wrote: ↑Jan 4th, 2018 7:18 pmIn my opinion if you have the mental strength to eat once a day and starve yourself then you should have the mental strength to consume a healthy diet with foods you enjoy in moderation.
The problem I see with eating one meal a day is not being able to get proper nutrition and in my opinion it's an eating disorder (stuffing your face with whatever food you want once a day, and then starving yourself).
What is your goal exactly?
In the end do whatever works for you, as long as you're healthy the choice of diet doesn't make a difference.
Also just a little note, don't believe everything you read online.

Hey if it works for you then more power to you, I think any type of diet is great if you're benefiting from it.Supercooled wrote: ↑Jan 4th, 2018 9:53 pmTo lose a little weight but to also work on self discipline. So many lack self discipline in today's world.
I don't intend to stuff my face full of junk calories either. Probably increase the calories but also maintain a good balance of protiens and veggies.

Can I assume you are just referring to studies about weight loss?Redmask wrote: ↑Jan 5th, 2018 1:32 pmThere are several studies on meal frequency and fasting, they've all basically come to the conclusion that results are largely the same between calories consumed and number of meals (or lack thereof). Meaning if you consume 2000 calories in one meal or 10, it doesn't really matter.

It probably is just your metabolism slowing down to the point where you use less calories per day and thus are not hungry.qman23 wrote: ↑Jan 5th, 2018 11:51 amit takes no force of will to not eat, once you are truly fat adapted.
Back when I wasn't, if I had to skip a meal, I would get low blood sugar and feel very hungry, weak and shaky.
now, I feel 'hungry' when it is my eating time, but if I don't eat it doesn't matter and the hungry feeling goes away in an hour.
The following day, I will feel hungry again at the same time of day (stronger than before) but it goes away in a couple hours.
Days 3,4,5 I don't feel hunger.
Nor do I feel weak or lacking in energy. Quite the opposite actually, and often go on long hikes in the wilderness. Rough camping is a different experience when you aren't constantly thinking about food.
