I’ve read about gastrointestinal distress. Does the stomach get too acidic while doing OMAD?
Many people assume the stomach will get into an acidic stage or start to eat itself during this diet. This is not how the stomach operates. There are epithelial cells inside your stomach. These secrete mucus and bicarbonate to protect itself from the acid even if there’s no food. In reality, your stomach will become less acidic with less food coming in because you will be secreting less acid for digestion.
I’ve always read that you should snack throughout the day to keep your metabolism up. Why doesn’t this concept apply to this diet?
If your an athlete or bodybuilder, than eating or snacking throughout the day is ideal so you can get all your required food. This would be described as upping your metabolism since your body would be in an anabolic state. Since our goal is to lose weight, we have to look at what is actually happening when we eat a snack. Your body will start to burn fat after you have used up all of your glucose stores. Unless your snacks are all fat, then you’re having your body restarting and restopping protein and glucose metabolism and it doesn’t break down the fat in your body.
Unless you have bowel movements every interval between snacks, your body is probably still processing the nutrients you took in since the last time you ate. Because of this, your body might not even be able to tell the difference between 2 meals a day or 5 meals a day.
Are there any changes in mood, sleep, or energy while on the omad diet?
Many people have reported a positive change in mood and energy while doing the OMAD diet. This might have to do with more of the mental aspect of feeling better during the diet which reflects more positivity all around. There have also been a lot of reports on people requiring less sleep after they have doing the omad diet for an extended period of time. Again, this could also be related to the overall mental aspects of doing the diet.
Is there a certain number of calories I should be looking to have during my OMAD meal?
There isn’t a certain number you should be looking for. The important thing to remember is to follow the structure of the omad diet and you will be fine. If you follow the omad diet properly, you will never have to worry about consuming too many calories in your eating window.
I’m worried about being hungry all the time. How can I do this diet if I feel like I’m suffering?
This is a frequent question and it’s hard to understand unless you have experienced the omad diet. You will most likely get less hungry as time passes. When you are first starting out, it can be tough, but will get easier. Everyone is different as to when your body will adapt to the diet.
