OMAD (one meal a day) and Intermittent Fasting
I've been experiencing a month-long weight loss plateau on my Keto OMAD Intermittent Fasting regime and wondered why. Megan Ramos, cofounder with Dr. Jason Fung of The Fasting Method, explained in a blog entry on their website that I've been doing it wrong. She says you need to shake up the timing of your one meal so your body doesn't get used to a repeated eating pattern, i.e. have your one meal at lunch time on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and at dinner time on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Sunday you should eat three meals a day or fast the entire day. She also said people who have more than 15 pounds of weight to lose, are trying to improve symptoms of metabolic syndrome and high insulin levels and are still in the process of working on their health goals should avoid doing OMAD. This was a real eye opener for me.
