I posted in the introduction thread, but here's my info:
So I started this a week ago and I've lost 1.6 pounds. I can look at myself and see the loss so I think it's more. I have a non-functioning thyroid and even with proper meds my metabolism is minimal. I also can walk by a salt shaker and retain water.
I am not following this diet as strictly as others on here. I would like for this to me a forever lifestyle change, not just a temporary thing. I drink my coffee with sugar-free french vanilla cream (about 45-50 calories) and I drink wine about 3 times a week. Those things are not going to change so I don't want to eliminate them now, lose tons of weight, just to regain it. I eat a normal meal at dinner time between 6 and 8. I tend to eat more towards low carb, just because I know that protein and fat will keep me feeling fuller for longer.
I know it seems like I am super overweight but I'm really not. I weigh more than other people my height. Clothing size now is 10/12. At 150 pounds I am a comfortable size 6. I starved myself in to a size 4 about 10 years ago and I weighed 145. I think that155 is probably maintainable if I continue to use calorie restriction with OMAD.
Good luck to you guys and I'll update you when I weigh again.
