Trying out that OMAD Life

This week I have started eating just one meal a day or OMAD as the cool kids call it (I don’t actually know any cool kids to ask, so I am just guessing.)

Today (May 30th, 2020), I’ve done it 5 days and I am actually still enjoying it. For me to live healthier I need structure without it all discipline goes out the window, the last few months the structure has been gone and my weight, unlike the Crew Dragon spacecraft skyrocketed. So it was time for a change.

I originally planned on just starting a multiple day fast to kickstart some motivation, but I chickened out and ate around dinner time. The next day, so I starting thinking about the OMAD thing and figured I’d give it a try. 5 days later I am still going strong.

Here is a quick glimpse at the last 5 days:

  • 7 – 8am – Wake up get the kids breakfast.
  • 9am – Start working.
  • 1pm – Play with kids outside for a bit.
  • 2pm – Back to work, start getting hungry
  • 3pm – Getting hungrier.
  • 5pm – Really getting hungry.
  • 5:30 – 6:30pm – Eat.
  • 7pm – No more eating.

The goal is to do the OMAD system on the weekdays and a 16:8 or 18:6 fasting on the weekends (basically eat lunch a dinner). I’ll keep you all updated on how it all goes.
