OMAD(one meal a day)

Not everyone needs or wants to live on one meal a day, but here is someone who loves it!

Treflyn says

“Since the 11th January I’ve been on a journey of fasting for 24 hours and eating one meal a day. I’ve always had a tendency to put on weight. And like most people I’ve managed to lose weight, but I’ve also managed to put it on again. Since I’ve been on my one meal a day regime I can say that it’s changed my outlook on getting healthy through understanding what makes me gain weight. It’s not calorie counting and it’s not about going to the gym. If you too are struggling to lose weight, look on YouTube and watch as many videos as you can on the topic of INSULIN RESISTANCE, INTERMITTENT FASTING and ONE MEAL A DAY. The rest is up to you.

On the 11th January 2019 my weight was 20st 5lb.

24th March 2019
My weight was 17st 8lb

My weight on the 20th April was 17st 3lb, which means I had lost over 3 stones.

My weight on the 23rd April 2019 was 16st 13lb.

My weight on the 28th April was 16st 11lb

On the 12th May 2019 I weighed 16st 5lb. That’s a 4 stone loss since January 11th 2019.

Here’s a strange phenomenon:
I ate a light meal of salad and meat on the evening of Thursday 25th April. As I was attending a breakfast meeting on the morning of Sunday 28th April I decided to fast from Thursday night until Sunday morning. This is did easily. I ate a fried breakfast; no carbs, on the Sunday morning. On Sunday night I was starving hungry which was not the norm for me. I normally eat my one meal a day between 5.00pm and 7.00pm. I decided that if I ate some food that it wouldn’t do me any harm. I ended up, sad to say, eating some duck meat, 4 buttered (not margarine) cream crackers and a slice of currant cake – yummy! – washed down with milk.
Because I had eaten carbohydrates I protected myself from leg cramps and heartburn by taking two antacid tablets at bedtime.
When I weighed myself the next morning (Monday 29th April) my weight had increased to 17st 2lb.
My Sunday night feast had caused me to put on weight. I went from 16st 11lb to 17st 2lb – How can that happen??? – Scary. This tells me that there’s no point in going on an extended fast and then pigging out!”( I say- when you eat carbohydrates you retain water and salt- this shows up as weight gain, fluid retention, swollen ankles, tight rings etc. Dr Jo)

“When I explain to friends and relatives how I have achieved this weight loss, they give me all sorts of advice based on misunderstanding and lack of knowledge. What I am doing is based on intensive research by Doctors and Professors understand how our body mechanism works, and it makes total sense to those who understand it. I haven’t felt this good and energised for years and I’m getting healthy and shedding lots of damaging body fat in the process”.
