    How are you doing?

    The hunger pangs are a little better. Just giving my body time to adjust and aiming for less than 1500 calories. I weigh in this weekend, so hopefully I'll start losing again. I was losing consistently with 3 meals /day but really want to give OMAD a fair chance.

    As you lower your calories, your body will be compelled to kick you into fat-burning a bit more. That may have been the problem.

    I want to incorporate ACV with OMAD this week. Has anyone experienced dental injury/tooth erosion with ACV?
  • leveejohnleveejohn Posts: 346Member Member Posts: 346Member Member
    I haven't noticed any. I dilute 2 tbs of ACV in a cup of grape juice, with a tsp of local raw honey.

    No. Just brush about 20 minutes after consuming it if it worries you.

    Pickle juice!

    Yes, the tooth decay part worries me too. I tried checking the research for benefits of ACV. I must say I was surprised that this idea was not a total failure. It seems there ARE some benefits. Yet - yet - I'm not doing it.

    So a few updates along with a question about ACV. The hunger pains are significantly better and I'm down 1lb

    Sorry my post cut off... I finally purchased ACV and tried it with cranberry juice. I tried it before my meal but it was quite strong and burned going down so didn't finish it. Do you drink this before or during your meal? I may be sensitive since I don't drink but the acid was a bit much. Thoughts?

    Maybe try with a tsp of honey as well. I sip ACV/honey/grape juice throughout the meal, and I've come to like it

    What brand of ACV are you using?

    Bragg's. It really burned... Throat is still tingling. I'll try it again in a few days but with 1 tbsp.

    I hope everything is going better for you. I have been doing OMAD for about 6 weeks, with strength training. It DOES get better, if you stick with it. Yesterday for example, I took my girls to breakfast before church at the donut shop, not even tempted. After church, headed to Toledo for a birthday party, BK first, not even tempted. At the party was all the normal party food, pizza, chips, dips, cake, ice cream, seriously, not tempted. When I got home I fixed myself something from the fridge and went to bed, that was 10:00. So all day was places where normally I would have eaten, but made it through no problem!!

    Again, I hope you are doing better, just get through this phase and it will smooth out!!

    Dilute it more. I would use tbs acv to 6 tbs juice then chase it with water. helps if you don't breath while doing it! I just realized I like dill pickle juice and can drink it without chasing it and I like it, unlike any other way I've taken vinegar.

    Here's what I do for ACV. I make a faux kombucha drink of 1-2T ACV, 6 oz tea, a can of LaCroix flavored seltzer water, and a bit of raw honey. I put it in an 18 oz mason jar. Maybe that would work better for you.

    I had my first splurge day yesterday and gained 5lb today. I'm sure this is water weight from the sodium but has anyone else experienced this? I just hope it wasn't counterproductive.
  • Brendalea69Brendalea69 Posts: 3,461Member Member Posts: 3,461Member Member
    Yes I've gained 5 pounds from a splurge day and yes it's just water weight...I have had a splurge day once a week since my 2nd week of dieting and I'm on my 35th week and my overall loss average is 1.79 pounds per week :)
  • Babygyrl17Babygyrl17 Posts: 49Member, Premium Member Posts: 49Member, Premium Member
    Thanks Brenda! Yes I was really nervous about the splurge day but figured I'd shake things up since Ive been doing OMAD now for 6 weeks. I'll see how I make out by the end of the week.
