    My experience has been:

    1. Extra meals in the gut is +2-3lbs extra (vs omad)
    2. Low carb is about 2-3lbs less than regular carb eating (one time thing also)
    3. Heavy exercise for an hour or so is about 1-2lbs extra (doesn't grow any more than that unless your doing very serious exercise for a long time). Couple of days rest and this goes away.
    4. Really salty stuff can be 2-4lbs extra but will go away in a day or two of OMAD and drinking a lot of water.


    I've seen all of those effects multiple times. I've gained 10-lbs on a three day hunting trip where I ate a lot and was doing a ton of exercise (hiking). OMAD 3 days after and most of it gone.

    Just don't get too aggressive that you don't want to do it at all. If that is the case. Just eat in the evenings for an extended time and get some more food in you. If you have to eat a lunch, eat a salad with some oil and some protein in it. Those things won't hurt you much and can help you to get back into it when your ready. That has been my experience anyways.

    After testing my scales with a 30 lb dumbbell last night, my old one read 31 lb and the new one read 36 lb. Needless to say I am back to the old scale and will be returning the other one this week. I didn't lose, but after a crappy weekend of eating, at least I maintained. Thanks for all of the support and motivation, even thinking I gained 10 lbs!! This group rocks!

    Maintaining is so much better than a 10 pound weight gain wii :) I'm really glad this was the result!

    Woohoo, sooo happy it was the scale, not you!

    Changing scales has a tendency to show different weights. I stick to one and that's that

    Long weekend in Chicago, so I am a day late with my weigh in. Good news is OMAD rocked while travelling for 4 days, very sustainable and actually made the trip easier! Yes, the weekend included Chicago Deep Dish pizza for 2 of the days, and still came out with a loss!!

    Awesome re: pizza!!! :D
  • wsandy8512wsandy8512 Posts: 1,897Member Member Posts: 1,897Member Member
    Very impressive! You've just given another positive side of OMAD, you can still indulge in some cool foods without overdoing it or going overboard and still lose weight, when sticking with it no matter where you go. I'm inspired by your post as my London trip is just around the corner. :-)

    Pizza for 2 days and you still had a loss?! This gives me hope o:) KUTGW!!!

    I've eaten pizza Fri nights, almost every fri night for the last couple of years and have lost. Fri night pizza is a tradition at my house.

    The lifts are starting to get heavier now, so hopefully OMAD can keep my body nourished. I was reading an article on nutrition yesterday as part of my personal trainer re certification, and it said one of the downfalls of IF is that it may not be efficient enough to fuel physical activity. Although outside of my window, I did supplement with a protein shake post workout. Has anyone had similar experiences?

    No, but I would maybe look at some super healthy strength training IF'ers. I follow a gal on FB who is a strict raw food vegan and she is fit and healthy and muscular... and a squat freak. lol Her whole body looks like steel. She does 16:8 IF, and has done so for years. If a raw vegan can do it, I think anyone should be able to.
