    Rough week so I will gladly take 1 pound. Still doing Stronglifts, did 1 HIIT session and started some YouTube yoga. I am feeling great and see a huge difference in how my pants fit. ABOUT 9 weeks into OMAD 5i still enjoy the simplicity.

    It's a joy to read your journal, Jason! Stronglifts plus OMAD. Plus averaging more than 1#/wk weight loss. You are killing it.

    I knew the day was coming, but my workout got tough yesterday!! I can feel myself still recovering today. Upping the calories, but sticking to OMAD.

    I am not working out fasted, but not for any nutritional reasons. My gym is in my basement so the best time I have to work out is after I put my girls to bed. I already get up at 4:30 for work, so I can't imagine an hour earlier to get a workout in!!

    Just getting heavy. I stalled on Overhead Press at 105; I got 5,5,5,4,4. Squats were at 185 and Deadlift at 215. I am just at the point where the program is catching up to where I probably should have started. I am glad I started with an empty bar though, it allowed me to concentrate on form as the weight increased. Squat, bench and rows tonight; bench and rows are still manageable, but squats at 190 will be challenging...

    And, I stalled on squats, 5,5,5,4,5. I believe it is due to lack of nutrition. The high school athlete part of me wants to eat more to get stronger, faster. I'm going to stick with OMAD though, let the gains stall, and get rid of some more body fat before moving on. Plus, OMAD is easier than trying to eat all that food anyway!

    Ive tried UCAN before lifting (super slow release starch that wont shut off fat metabolism) and done well on that while otherwise fasted. Its kind of expensive but works well. Give it a search.

    I think the plan for now is to deload and keep on with OMAD. I have to remember I am training to be healthy, not to make the HS Football team! I am hooked on OMAD and honestly don't even think about it now, it just happens. So I will back off the weight some and keep on keeping on until I hit my goal weight and then re-evaluate.
