Keep Going Even If You Fail At First

#1
Truth be told, for beginners and even others who fast from time to time for various reasons (especially religious ones), it's not always easy. But for someone who decides they want to try OMAD for health reasons or simply because they want to lose weight, do not be discouraged if you find yourself eating more than one meal a day.

It will take time before you adapt so just pick yourself up and try to fight the urge to eat outside your alloted time the next day. Gradually, you'll adapt and doing without two meals will be quite easy for you.

Actually my first days were harsh. There was this day I ft like walking on air and my vision was blurry. I talked like one intoxicated but that one went away. Nowadays it is as if I just eat normally. One meal a day is not a bad diet.

I always tell those that are starting this diet plan that the beginning is not always easy but giving up should never be an option. I never gave up on Omad and that has made me achieve tremendous success on this plan as well.

Yes it's true. Starting diet is never easy. When I started Omad I also feel discourage, especially when I don't see that I'm losing weight in the first month. There are a lot of worries too and temptations to stop. But never get along with it if your purpose really is to be healthy.

They say it takes between 21 to 425 days to form a habit and dieting is a form of a habit so don't be too worried if it takes you a long time to get the swing of things, that's just how it is! In order to keep positive make sure to focus on small gains and achieveable goals, do this by having a longterm goal that focuses on what you hope the end achievenment to be and then develop shorter term goals with easily defined accomplishements that wil help you stay motivated. For example if you want to lose 20 pounds, then plan that for a year out and focus on having a goal every four months showing that you have lost and kept off five pounds. It's a more realistic and healthy way to live your life.

Doing OMAD will never be easy, especially in the start. It will take you time to adjust because your body is not used to eating only one meal a day. But keep in mind that every hardship will always give you a reward in the end. Just always remember why you even considered doing OMAD. I also suggest to have an inspiration to continue fighting towards your goal, and don't lose faith if ever you fail at first. Failure will always be the first step to success.

I tried fasting before, it is really hard to do it. There are times that I end up eating specially if it is one of my favorite foods and the hunger is really hard to take. But I persevered since I wanted to lose weight and for religious purpose as well. I picture what I want and what would be the result if I persevered.

When you hear being on a diet, it sounds so sweet and interesting but it's not as easy as it sounds. It's actually not easy as it looks and it's even harder for newbie because they are not used to eating one meal a day.

When you break your diet plan, it's not the end of the world. Just get right back on track and in no distant time, you will get used to it.

OMAD diet is not easy.You need to condition your body and mind to your new everyday plan of eating especially when you are used to a three times meal a day.You may find yourself eating much as required but its okay,don't be discourage or give up. .If there are times that you are not following your diet just try and try again.In time,your body will get used to it.Your body are still on a process of adopting your new diet.

I really want to adopt this omad practice, bit I really find it very challenging to cut my meals to just one a day. What I am doing now is I eat an early dinner and I guess it works okay for me because in a span of two weeks I lost about 4 lbs. I don't think I can cut my meals to just one, I know this is not the right way, but how can I get to that point where I will be satisfied with just one meal? This is the biggest problem I have with omad. What can you say to someone who thinks they cannot really do it, but really wants it to work.

@sonnisabeast. I see what you mean. I have been where you are. I would recommend that you start with the 16-8 intermittent fasting protocol where you skip breakfast and have lunch and dinner. As time goes by you can fast for 18, 20 and finally 23 hours. As you go and see the benefits you get used to fasting. Keep busy and keep your goals in mind this should give you the momentum you need. When I first started with the 16- 8 protocol I also found it quite hard but with time you get used to it. Never give up anyone can do it.

When it comes to doing OMAD and being successful in it, what you need is resilience and persistence. Without having these two qualities, it's definitely going to very difficult to make through past the first week in the fasting. But when you endure the strain it pulls on your body, it's going to get used to it and you will do perfect on it.

I think all of us came to this point where in we failed once or twice or more but what's more important here is that we shouldn't stop and let's continue working our daily routine. The OMAD helps a lot of people here so if they can do that, you will also be able to do that. It may be hard at first but you will use to that routine as you will continuously doing it. The more you discourage yourself, the more you fail so our mindset should change into positive one.

Actually for me, the first days weren't so bad. But after a week has passed.... I hated OMAD then. I was so hungry and I ate more then once. Now eating just once it is not hard, scary and I am not hungry at all.

Seriously? You had a weird experience with your taking part in OMAD because I felt like crap throughout the first week of engaging in OMAD because it's something my body wasn't used to but as time passed, I became more used to it especially with the hunger pangs.

When I first started, I didn't see any weight loss, and seeing all the comments of other people losing a lot in their first week honestly kind of discouraged me a bit but I decided to push through because even if I didn't see results, I could definitely feel it as I felt lighter and less bloated, and also I felt a lot clearer mentally. Over time, I strayed from my routine a bit and went off OMAD for about a month, but eventually was able to go back into it and felt great again. I think it's really one of the good aspects of this diet and lifestyle since you could stray from it and fail for a while but as long as you decide not to give up on it completely then you feel great again almost immediately once you start back up again. It's also why I think it's better to be observant of your feelings on it and not just depend on visual results because everyone is different and not all people will lose the weight quickly but as long as you can feel that it's working then you definitely should still push through with it.

Failure is never an option in my life. This is one of the reasons that I focus on doing Omad as that is the best way that I keep pushing for the bigger goals that I want to achieve. I believe that we should always set out weekly goals of how many pounds we want to lose and aim to achieve it.

Hahaha. It's not like I undervalue your comment but now that it is passed it can be taken as a laughing matter and encouragement as well. The thing with me is that I always feel weak physically.
