Be advised: The effectiveness of diets vary from person to person and I cannot guarantee that taking this approach will work for you.. When it comes to this site Hubbys Home, it turns out I’m possibly the world’s worst blogger and I don’t tend to respond to the comments here. The idea of adopting a one meal a day diet first came to me when I read an article about an American General, Stanley Mc Chrystal.
I do feel bad about that, because when people take the time to reach out, it’s a bit of a slap in the face to get ignored. 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.
If you decide to do something similar it’s my hope that you can benefit from my experience.
I write this as if a friend had asked me to describe the diet.
My own experience has taught me to master the mindset of the diet first and then progress to the strenuous exercise in the final stages of a diet (if that’s what you want to do).
I needed a diet that suited me and my existing lifestyle. 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.
Even if you can get past the ridicule or at least the fear of it, you’re going to encounter other problems like injury and lack of motivation.
By all means aim to get fit and put on a little muscle, but don’t feel compelled to try to make two major changes to your lifestyle at the same time.This is my account of how I lost a significant amount of weight when I adopted the idea of eating one main meal a day.I’ve written this for those who have heard about eating one meal a day and want to seek out the experience of someone doing it.Following a balanced diet as outlined by the NHS is good enough.Sure, if you’re going for Olympic gold, then get freaky about your diet, but for the majority of people looking to lose a bit of weight in order to feel better about themselves and extend their lifespan, there’s no need to have a finely tuned and detailed diet plan.For a long time I suspected that it was possible to lose weight eating a normal balanced(ish) diet.
