What do those even mean? And how do you choose the right one for your story?
I lost 30lbs over 5 months eating 1 meal in the evening.
I write this as if a friend had asked me to describe the diet. The effectiveness of diets vary from person to person and I cannot guarantee that taking this approach will work for you. Please see my disclaimer at the foot of this post. Please continue reading… One meal a day! The idea of adopting a one meal a day diet first came to me when I read an article about an American General, Stanley McChrystal.
The article was about his capability as a leader, not about dieting or weight loss, but as an aside it was mentioned that he ate only one meal a day. Judging by the pictures I saw, the man looks in great shape and clearly manages to find enough energy to go running every day AND command the day to day operations of the military in a war zone.
At the time I read it I was busy eating six small meals a day, going to the gym and running almost every day. I was spending a lot of time reading about dieting and weight loss — getting into the minute detail — listening to people who insisted that you had to cut out certain types of food and eat specific foods, in specific ratios, at specific times.
I spent more time researching the best way to lose weight than I invested in actually doing something about it. The staples — bread, pasta, rice, potatoes, fish, meat, vegetables, fruit, dairy, and all the rest.
The sorts of things an army officer, like the General, might get served up in the mess tent. Ordinary, regular food served up in decent portions that fills your belly and keeps you feeling satisfied for hours afterwards. No need to get the supposed optimal balance between protein, carbohydrate and fat.
Following a balanced diet as outlined by the NHS is good enough. Build up fitness and exercise regimes slowly and deliberately to get the most enjoyment and benefit. Diet as part of a lifestyle I needed a diet that suited me and my existing lifestyle.
I needed it to be simple and inexpensive. I needed it to be something I could sustain over a long period of time and something I could adapt to a permanent lifestyle when I lost the weight.
My life is based around being at home with the children — cooking, cleaningdoing housework and building a home based business. Superfoods are super but they are also expensive and they are not the miraculous missing link in a successful diet.
I needed a diet that limited my choices and left me to make only good decisions. And as you doubtless know, comfort eating often seems like a way to relieve the stress. How does the diet work? Monday to Friday — One main meal in the evening, with a dessert.
Saturday — Two meals — lunch and dinner, with more freedom to snack in between. In other words, a cheat day. Sunday — Two meals — lunch and dinner, with a dessert.
Throughout the day I drink water and tea. The meal will be big enough to fill my stomach and even make me feel slightly too full. Such is the beauty of this diet, fasting during the day means my stomach feels fuller quicker at meal times and stops me over eating.
I eat what the family eats. Meals based around meat, chicken, fish, rice, potatoes, pasta, bread, vegetables, fruit, milk, cream, cheese, eggs — and usually followed by something sweet.
This is not about starving myself this is about controlling when I eat so that I can be assured of creating a moderate caloric deficit every day. I guess if you could classify it as snacking.
Exercise during the diet I made a conscious decison not to take on any additional exercise other than walking once or twice a day with the dogs. Taking on exercise as part of your diet may seem like a good idea, but my own experience is that exercise hampers my efforts.
Understand that the real result is not what the scale says but whether you stuck to your eating plan. You are going to feel hungry on a diet, learn to get comfortable with it.Jesus Myth - The Case Against Historical Christ.
