question about rate of weigh loss for males

x3nomorphx3nomorph Posts: 175Member Member Posts: 175Member Member
hello fellow OMADers

I have been doing this program for 6 days now and I feel GREAT, no hunger, great energy, I can even do medium intensity workouts while fasted, it seems almost too good to be true and the food taste delicious at the end of the day

anyway, my question is about the rate a weight loss for a moderate active male(I do lifting. swimming, power walking through out the week) on OMAD I have around 50 lbs to lose, maybe less

I search through the thread titles but couldn't find an answer, thanks and good look to you all on your journey to health

    Rate of loss varies too much. I can tell you mine was 2.4 to 3.6 pounds per week, but 1.5 to 2.3 tends to be, if my feet were to the fire, an average for both sexes. It has been said that a loss of no more than 2.2 lbs per week is your best bet not to have loose skin. But it is really not difficult to hit 2.0+ lbs loss per week with just simple consistency.

    thanks Sam for that important info, I've been watching some of your YT videos, great content

    another quick question, is there any minimum calorie threshold we shouldn't cross or otherwise we would risk the hunger coming back during the fast?

    I have been eating around 1600 cals/day with home made meals done from scratch, no junk food at all, green tea to sip through the day

    thank you for taking the time to respond

    No minimum. Just adjust to you.

    great

    I'm excited for this journey, you can't put a price tag to the mental freedom of not thinking about food all day and not being hungry, is a game changer really

    well I have been averaging about 4 pounds a week but I had 130 pounds to loose total, Im sure it will slow down once I get a little lower.

    any of you guys have tried doing a full water fast day a week in a low activity day?

    it would be 6 OMAD meals per week instead of 7, I'm entertaining the idea but not sure if it is too soon since I'm only 10 days in, or even if it is a good idea at all

    I would wait on that until you hit the three-month marker.

    yes, I better concentrate in getting a solid handle of straight OMAD first, and learn how my body reacts to it before getting too fancy

    develop a baseline for a couple months and then go from there , thanks for the heads up
