Eating One Meal A Day Won’t Help! See How To Turn ON Your “Fat Burning Genes”.. And why 93% of diet and exercise programs fail!:
Truth About Intermittent Fasting & Slower Metabolisms
👉Eating One Meal A Day (OMAD) Is Stupid & Unhealthy!
I’ve had probably have a dozen guys ask me what I think about the One Meal A Day diet?
One person was telling me about all the health benefits.
Another said how it helped them lose weight.
Two people said how they loved the freedom and the fact they could eat whatever they wanted.
So for those of you who don’t know, the One Meal A Day (OMAD) diet is like an extreme version of Intermittent Fasting. You basically just eat once a day. That’s it. And it’s usually like dinner, where you can be social and go out on a date or with friends.
In fact, I know of two, very well-known doctors who follow it – one of them being a cardiologist.
However, I’m not here to drop names or say anything negative about anyone, especially because I like a lot of what these two doctors say – of course, they make a lot of mistakes too based on misinformed generalities.
Very Unhealthy Diet
First of all, the diet is very unhealthy because the entire selling point of it is that you can eat whatever you want in that one meal. Pizza, ice cream, pastries, alcohol and so forth. After all, you are only eating ONCE, might as well load up on your favorites.
Sure, this can lead to fake weight loss – which I’ll talk about in a minute.
But your body’s health, energy levels, fitness and longevity is about NUTRIENTS that are ABSORBED. Not stupid, unhealthy calories that you ingest.
If you want to lie to yourself and pretend this is a healthy diet so you can justify eat whatever you want – that’s fine, it’s your life. But eating junk daily is NOT healthy and you’ll pay the price months and years later and I think you already know this!
Not For People Who Want Muscles
First, anyone who wants to have muscles and exercises, which I think should be EVERYONE – cannot and should not follow this diet.
You need protein to repair your body – especially your muscles. And, protein can’t be stored, unlike carbohydrates and fats. And thus, you need to eat protein throughout the day, to heal and repair your body, including muscles.
ONCE a day isn’t enough. Nor can you absorb all of it in one sitting, with one meal.
Plus, your performance, strength and stamina will drop slowly and you’ll just fall apart over the next few months and years.
Fake Weight Loss
For those of you who think you’re losing weight on this diet because something magical happens by not eating for 23 hours, you’re ignorant or delusional.
You’re losing weight because you’re simply eating and drinking less calories, that is it!
And mind you, I said “weight”, not FAT loss.
Potential Health Benefits
However, there are health benefits – better blood sugar, blood pressure and so forth. But, it’s from the weight loss due to the lower caloric intake. NOT because you’re eating one meal a day.
In fact, this type of diet screws up so many of your hormones because your body thinks it’s STARVING.
The one well-known doctor I mentioned earlier, he spoke in a video about what he eats in that one meal.
Your body WILL slow down, to go into survival mode.
The ONLY Thing I Like About This Diet
There’s only ONE thing I like about this eating one meal a day and that’s the freedom. Honestly, the fact that you don’t have to cook and clean so often or have to stop what you’re doing to eat, 4-6x daily is fantastic.
