    I noticed one thing that is contradicting Joe's theory or anyones for that matter. When I weigh myself first thing in the morning I weight 2 to 3 pounds more. When I weight right before I break my fast around 7 pm, I feel I get a much more accurate reading. My omad meal is dinner. Any theories?

    Not sure why, maybe you are releasing fluids throughout the day. I'd just concentrate on weighing at the same time of day for each weigh-in. I know my weight varies 2-3 lbs throughout the day, but I haven't checked mornings vs. evening since on OMAD.

    You lose glycogen weight and water while fasting. You also might not be drinking a lot of water during the day. I weight about 2-3 lbs more at bed than in the morning. I can't remember what I weigh before I eat.

    That's the funny part. I drink about 90oz of water before 4pm. I feel it's the sodium retention

    Today I briefly weighed in at 189.5 but when. I stepped back on it was 190 LOL., i ate one or two slices of pizza for every day this week and still lost about 2.5 pounds. Still doing good with my macros except protein but I am not going to worry about it for now. Ready to start week 3 tomorrow!

    Your body is teasing you haha....
    Fight back. You'll get under 190 soon!

    That's awesome that you ate pizza and still lost 2.5 LBs, it gives me hope that I can eat pizza too :)

    My scale will always weigh me heavier if I get back on it. I think the springs get loosened up. Just be consistent with how you do the weighing.

    Weighed in at 188lbs yesterday at 17.2% bf. Very exciting. My dinner has been my OMAD meal and i have been eating eggs, chicken sausage, one or two slices of pizza, p28 protein bread with dark chocolate peanut butter and even ice cream for the past two days. Absolutely love OMAD at this point!

    After eating a double cheese burger, fries, two p28 slices with extra dark chocolate Pb and ice cream last night my weight is back up at 189 today lol lesson learnt not to overdo even if omad! Like someone mentioned before my body is actually craving for healthy food now! Is this a omad thing?
  • Brendalea69Brendalea69 Posts: 3,514Member Member Posts: 3,514Member Member
    That doesn't seem like a lot, it will come back off fast!!!

    I wanted to eat more healthy and did while on OMAD.
  • 1MADGIRL1MADGIRL Posts: 836Member Member Posts: 836Member Member
    You managed to stay under 190 :)
    I overdo things sometimes as well... I had a lot of food and wine yesterday so I decided not to weigh myself this morning. I'll weigh myself tomorrow :) It's okay. We're doing okay.
