    Hey all!

    Hey everyone, hope you're all doing well.

    Just wanted to introduce myself. I'm a guy who lives in the middle east and of course I am here to lose weight, as most of us probably are. I have done all sorts of diets in the past, with some success, and was able to keep some of the weight off, however I always end up yo-yoing some of it back eventually as I'm sure many of you might have issues with too.

    I'm familiar with OMAD, however watching the OMAD revolution youtube channel did give me a bit of a wakeup call on my habits and behaviors in regards to eating and I'm looking to fix for good. As I approach closer to the age of 30 I'd like to make sure my weight problem is taken care of for good, and more importantly, my eating habits and relationship with food is completely changed.

    I've always consistently done weight lifting as one of my hobbies so that will continue on OMAD. I've already been doing OMAD for a few weeks now so my body is quite used to it, however I'd like to see what your experiences are on OMAD as well.

    Looking forward to seeing all of your progress and getting motivation from you all, and a special thanks to arguablysamson for his content. I think he has a lot of wisdom from his mix of failures and success over the years, and I wish i'd have found his content sooner.

    Welcome!

    And thanks!

    As for taking care of weight "for good," remember that it must always be managed. So the proper mindset is one of life balance/maintenance and perpetual rebirth of responsible effort.

    hello, i am al lady living in middle east, too. original from Europe. i am almost 50 years and i need to loose 40 pound/20 kilo, overweight. i am living vegetarian for 39 years and before 4 years i was living vegan for 15 years, very strong and i was for a few years with making weight watchers and 3 times in the gym hard training i was fine on my normal weight for years but always it came back, last time when i changed the country from Europe to Africa with all these nice cakes working in 5 star hotel all inclusive, so i could not hold my super clean vegan eating, i decided to eat the cakes, which was a good desicion because it was amazing, while walking in the job daily 15 and more kilometer i gained weight with eating big salad and sweets dessert, i changed to two meals a day, only lunch at 14 o clock and dinner at 19 o clock but going to the snack shop at night because of the stress in the job. so stress really make overweight cause i used the sweets to calm down and relax. last but not least i gained weight and stopped with 20 kilo too much and the work was feeling like hell in summer walking with 55 degree in the sun really. after corona march 2020 job finished and i work online relaxed and cook again my food. still vegetarian but most vegan, but i do not want to miss cheese sometimes and sweets.
    i started omad since one week in a eating window for 4 hours. mostly omad in eating window from one hour. it works fine. i am working online and it is very hot here at the moment, in the sun maybe 55 degree, so i do not leave the house much and work online. from all my experience with weight lost, i agree with jo, i saw his videos on you tube, that sport isn t the key for weight loss becauce it produces cortisol which bring stress and gaining weight. when i lost weight before i was running in fitness studios as well, but here it is quiet too hot, even the sea has temperature vom 31 degree at the moment. so in winter time i walk. i didn t bought a car here, instead of the stress from driving i go on my feet, take the bus or taxi if it is necessary. i guess you guy understand that it is enough sport going with over 30 degree in the night to the supermarket with heavy bags, smiley. this is really so hard that you need a shower after this and not only me, even the slim people, smile. and i eat what i want, even cheesecake. but if, only one piece and after normal food. lets see how it works out.i wish you all the best guys and hopefully you stay with me and lets rock it. yeah.

    Hello, I'm new to the group- I'm wondering if it's still active? I've tried OMAD on and off but would like to stick with it.

    Welcome to all the new OMADers, we are definitely still here. OMAD is a great WOE that produces results. Please create a thread so we can share in your journey. This is a great group to be a part of.

    Hi All -- dipping a toe in here to introduce myself as I've been reading the group threads for a bit. I am a 42 year old woman living in Europe, with about 11 more pounds to go to hit a healthy BMI, and another 10 after that to get to the weight where my work suits will all fit properly again. I had a look at arguablysamson's youtube channel and have been alternating days of OMAD vs. days of having an eating window of about 5 hours.

    I have lost 5.2 kg/11 pounds in doing so and am starting to feel hopeful again for the first time in a very long time that I can get my weight under control so that I just quit thinking about it so much and letting it occupy so much of my brain space. Thanks very much to all of you for your great threads and great content, which I have found incredibly motivating.

    ...your name or preferred username-- Mitch- From the southwest coast of Canada, Eh.
    ...your weight-- 235#, highest being 248# before this past spring
    ...your height-- 5'9"
    ...any past struggles you've faced or are facing--
    Have tried all kinds of plans (Paleo,noom etc.) (Noom has helped with my understanding of the psychological side for sure!) always with the same boomerang after a few weeks. I have had the most success with IF but still didn't work.. left too much time to grazing.. and I also tried to restrict the type of food I am eating (Keto diet) then to eventually another Binge happened. Was quite active up to the end of my teens with Mountain bike racing. slowly started to add the weight over the years as work took over life. Turning 30 this year and in the middle of a boomerang. Got turned towards OMAD on youtube.... this just feels different. Only just starting but I feel very confident with my past fasting experience (have done a 3 day fast before going into IF Previously)
    ...your goal weight range-- 160-185# (during my bike racing years I was 175)
    ...the time of your OMAD-- 12-4pm
    ...and your OMAD start date.-- 16-09-2021

    I Feel in control of my hunger urges. 5 min rules works great. I got it this time.
    Another thing that made me believe OMAD would work( going against modern dietary recommendations) is that no one is charging money for it! so many success stories with lasting effects. I wish I knew earlier!

    Cheers

    Thank you so much for creating this page and taking the time to help others. I cannot thank everyone enough for all there experiences and tips and support.
