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.

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.

I am so pleased with the OMAD/keto I have lost 29 lbs since I started! I was amazed when following this way of eating, was not difficult at all!

Hello my name can be found in The Iliad, take a guess if you feel playful.
I like greasy meaty junk food. Not an alcohol drinker and sweets don't temp me. It's the damn's burgers and fried chicken's fault why I'm fat lol
Dinner is my OMAD time, just because I learned that willpower is an exhaustible resource that is replenished at night and used up throughout the day.
I did OMAD here and there last summer (2020) and I have been doing OMAD M-F since the beginning of October '21. On weekends I have two meals.
I started doing it because I listened to a couple of Dr Fung's books and I was sold on what fasting does in terms of insulin resistance.
I recently had an experience that deepened my appreciation for it. One week my weight went up despite eating at a deficit and doing OMAD for 4 days. I know that fasting has way more benefits than limiting food/calories intake and for me I realized that even if I wasnt trying to lose weight I should do it for the following reasons:
- It frees my time that I would otherwise use to go get food, or prep and cook food.
- It saves Money
- It allows me to eat occasional savory high-calorie meals without going over maintenance
- During lunch break I walk and listen to audiobooks
- I get sated with smaller meals
- My body is training to have energy ready to go from stored sources
- It inspires others
- Fasting improves insulin resistance
- Fasting trains and strengthens you willpower and patience
- It gives your GI system a break (mine is working much better when doing OMAD most days)
- Better sleep due to less indigestion
- It automatically makes you part of a community of fasters which are knowledgeable and determined people
Thank you for reading, and send an FR if you feel we can get along

Hi, folks. I've been learning about OMAD slowly, but surely. Does anyone not follow the one-plate rule and consume their daily caloric intake? If so, how do you get 1200 calories and up, during that one meal? Thanks for your tips!
