A lot of people have started sharing stories on how following the One Meal A Day plan is helping them achieve their fitness goals like getting a lean body and shedding unwanted weight.
OMAD is an extreme version of intermittent fasting (IF). For the uninitiated, intermittent fasting requires you to fast for a period of 15-18 hours a day and utilise the remaining hours to eat. So it is safe to say that OMAD is an extension of IF, which allows you to eat only one meal. Yes, one meal where you are allowed to eat whatever you want, without any restriction on calories or portions.
Wondering why would someone fast the whole day and eat only one meal? Well, the reason is because many people claim to have seen considerable changes in their body. Moreover, it is a convenient diet plan for people who have a travelling job or those who find it tough to curb their cravings. While, science does not back up this diet plan, it comes with a BIG disclaimer for people wanting to try it.
International celebrities like Channing Tatum and Liz Hurley claim to have followed this diet to stay fit and healthy.
Similar to other fad diets, not all diets are meant for everyone. To some, it can do more harm than good. There was a 2017 study that said some people could actually end up gaining weight by following this diet.
