The Untold Secrets of One Meal a Day | Top Questions Answered


In this video we’re talking about the untold
secrets of one meal a day.
Hi, I’m Dr. Zyrowski from Nuvisionexcel.com.
If you’re new to the channel, it’s such a
pleasure to have you here.
Be sure to subscribe, hit that little bell

so you can excel your health and your life.
We’re talking about the untold secrets of
one meal a day.
Here’s the deal, I’ve done tons of videos
on OMAD, so if you haven’t seen those yet
be sure to check out my OMAD playlist.
What I want to do is take you through a practical
guide of how I actually navigate one meal
a day and just break it down for you.
I’m sure you’re going actually have a lot
of things that you can add, and you can put
those in the comment section below but, I’m
going to go through and teach you some of
the things that I use in order to make one
meal a day easy for me and how I navigate
this.
Let’s go ahead and jump right in and let’s
start with hunger.
A lot of times when you first start with one
meal a day you’ll experience ravenous hunger.
It will actually subside in three to four
days where it doesn’t bother you that much
anymore but the other thing when it comes
to hunger is there’s a couple things you can
do to actually blunt that hunger.
One of the trick I’ll use is using black coffee.
Instead of drinking black coffee in the morning
when I’m not hungry anyway, I’ll push it back
to late morning or early afternoon to when
I actually start getting hungry and it will
actually go and help blunt that hunger.
Black coffee worked very well.
If you’re going to use cream, use very minimal
amount of cream because it will throw you
out of your fast.
Anything that raises blood sugar or insulin
will break your fast, so be careful with that.
Black coffee is really powerful.
The next thing I use is sparkling mineral
water.
I specifically use the mineral water because
it is loaded with minerals and that’s very
beneficial when you’re fasting so that helps
make you feel satiated.
When you’re starting to feel hungry, drink
some of the sparkling mineral water, it really
helps with the hunger issue.
Next thing that I’ll use is some green tea
and I’ll also use our apple cider vinegar
fasting drink, I’ll put a link to that below,
but those all really help mitigate that hunger
response.
A lot of people thing too that when they feel
that hunger come that it’s going to continue
getting worse.
Well, the hunger comes and goes, you’ll maybe
feel it for fifteen, twenty minutes and then
it disappears.
It’s likely going to be gone the rest of the
day.
You just kind of got to get through it.
Make sure that during that time you have something
going on, try to stay focused, and work through
that hunger.
The pain will come and go and it will subside
and you can move on in life.
The next thing here is every day.
Should I do OMAD every day?
How I navigate OMAD is there’s some days that
I do it and there’s some days that I don’t.
A lot of people get fanatical when they jump
into these different topics.
OMAD is a tool that you have in your toolbox,
a strategy but it is not a thing that you
have to do every single day.
I switch between OMAD and intermittent fasting,
which is just the sixteen and eight rule all
the time.
You can do the same thing too.
Just because you started OMAD does not mean
you have to do it every single day.
You’ll probably like doing it more often than
not because you’ll probably feel better, but
once again depending on what’s going on and
how my life is at that time, I’ll switch it
up a bit.
I always either do intermittent fasting or
OMAD, but I bounce back between the two.
Now, just to be clear on that OMAD is just
one meal a day, intermittent fasting is sixteen
hours of fasting and then eating within an
eight-hour period.
Now, one of the things that will determine
if I’m doing OMAD or intermittent fasting
is the training that I’m doing at the time.
When I’m doing excessive miles, like let’s
say if I go out and I run ten miles in one
day, then OMAD is not for me that day because
for one, I’m going to be extraordinary hungry
and it’s going to be very uncomfortable to
eat all the calories that I need during that
one meal, that one setting so intermittent
fasting fits me better.
The days that I’m going and doing a lot of
cardiovascular exercise, running and a few
other things, I’ll go ahead and just use regular
intermittent fasting.
Weight training, I have no problem doing on
OMAD.
The other things about training that I want
to mention is that it is best if you actually
do your training prior to your first meal.
Once again, don’t be fanatical about it.
If you can’t, then that’s fine.
However, there’s just tons of proven benefits
and fat burning and optimizing hormones and
raising testosterone and growth hormones,
so many other things if you can actually train
in a fasted state.
Let’s go ahead and move on to meal time.
A lot of people ask when do you eat your meal
on one meal a day?
I like eating it at night.
There’s a little bit of a scientific reason
for that and that is that when you’re eating
that one massive meal, essentially what it’s
going to do is put your body into a parasympathetic
state.
That is the way that your nervous system operates
when it’s in its rest and digest.
You’re digesting all that food, it’s about
bedtime and it puts you in that parasympathetic
state and it’s going to make you tired.
If you’re eating that one meal a day in the
afternoon It’s probably going to be very hard
to not just completely crash in the afternoon
or, if you’re doing it in the morning or what
have you.
One meal a day for me is best at night.
I know that some people have different have
work scheduled and some people work nights,
look, just flip it and do what’s best for
you.
Once again, you don’t have to be fanatical
about it, it doesn’t have to be at six o’clock
at night or seven o’clock at night, it can
be whenever works best for you.
For me, it’s at night and then scientifically
I like it at night because that’s going to
put your body in a better state to sleep and
rest and also digest that food.
Next thing is, eating your meal.
There’s a couple things about eating your
meal.
First of all, when people get to that meal
time typically they just have an absolute
ravenous hunger that they just want to throw
down anything they can find.
When you’re eating your meal, first of all
my recommendation is to make sure that you’re
chewing it well, eating it slowly just because
it can cause digestive problems if you’re
just throwing these things down the gullet
and not chewing it well and eating all of
your food in that one huge meal.
Another thing that I like to use when eating
that one meal is I’ll use digestive enzymes.
There’s certain things that can affect your
digestive enzyme levels a lot of exercise
and training is one of them.
If you’re having a hard time breaking down
that food, digestive enzymes are recommended,
that’s what I’ll use quite often during that
one meal.
The other thing, when eating your meal make
sure you’re eating high quality meals.
I do a video on the OMAD food plan and what
to eat when on OMAD.
I’ll put that in the description below as
well.
The last thing I want to mention about eating
your meal is it’s very important to plan your
meals.
If you’re going in to your meal and you’re
just grabbing whatever you can find, you’re
going to find yourself eating all kinds of
junk, you’re going to find that you’re not
eating a good nutrient dense meal, you’re
going to find that you’re also not eating
a balanced meal.
I find for me, if I don’t have my meal planned
then I’m all over the place so I like to make
sure that my meals are planned so that I’m
kind of navigating that meal very well, making
sure I’m getting a broad spectrum of different
nutrients and different foods and balanced
carbs and proteins and fats.
Make sure you plan your meals out and have
an idea of what you’re going to eat for it
so that you don’t really find yourself crashing
by eating low quality foods.
The last topic for discussion is supplements.
When I’m on one meal a day, first of all,
I take my supplements during my eating window.
I do not take them while I’m fasted.
The other thing about supplements is that
I’m a firm believer that you need to make
sure you’re taking a broad spectrum multi-mineral.
We use multi-mineral active, taking neuroboost
which is an Omega 369 essential fatty acid,
DHA as well and lastly, the probiotics.
We use a probiotic strength.
Now, the reason I take those is first of all,
it’s scientifically proven that people are
very deficient in these different nutrients
and that also you’re not getting them from
your meals as you should.
The probiotic strength is going to help keep
your gut healthy.
The active multi-min daily is going to work
to make sure you’re getting broad spectrum
nutrients, vitamins and minerals and then
the neuroboost is really designed to help
support neurological function, neurological
function, cellular health and all that.
You really should take these different supplements
regardless if you’re doing one meal a day
or not.
Those are just the basic core nutrients in
order to maintain good health.
Anyway, go ahead and post in the comment section
below if you have any other questions, or
you have anything to add to this.
Also, be sure to subscribe to my channel right

how to navigate OMAD and share them with your
friends and I’ll see you in the next video.

    I'm doing IF 20/4 sometimes 24/1. I weight train in the morning for an hour. My question is IF as effective as it is with KETO? I am mind full of what I'm eating as I have seen your video regarding what to eat on OMAD. So I plan my meals according to the food pyrmid.

    Started OMAD with IF this past January 20, 2019.

    Started with 98kg.

    Way back 2016 I was my heaviest at 216kg.
    Lost that weight due to medical reasons.

    But I gained it all back post Discharge from the hospital and the year to come.

    But I wanted to change..so I did..

    On 24hrs Fasting.

    Eating 1 serving 400ml container as for my bowl of Carrots, cabbage, 2tbs olive oil, 2tbs apple cider(mother), 1tsp valsalva vinegar.

    Either with a can of tuna or chicken breast.

    The 1st week was terrible.but I got use to it.

    I'm a nurse.a Trauma Nurse.
    With different time for my shift but I was able to do IF + OMAD…

    I worked like a horse.but was still in the game up until my day ends.

    Like what you've said…black coffee helps.a lot.

    I like coffee but I prefer it decaf which is convenient cause here in the Philippines we have a Nescafe Decaf sachets for P2.50($0.048).

    Now from 98kg I'm 92kg.

    I've also watch another YouTuber Fledge Fitness about IF and followed his advise on what exercise I can do.
    I went for weight lifting, which I was already accommodated to before my hospitalization.

    Hoping to stay on IF and OMAD..
    Thank you for you very informative and MOTIVATIONAL videos..it helps me a lot.

    Peace out from the Philippines

    My question is, doesn't this restrict calories too much? I'm worried about slowing metabolic rate. Is this considered a form of fasting? Fasting is known to actually increase metabolism. This is what I am trying to wrap my mind around. I want to lose fat and keep it off the rest of my life. I have lost 31 lbs in a month with just cutting out bad carbs and increasing good fat intake. Most of it is water. But I eat two or three times a day. OMAD just doesnt seem right for me at this point.

I also know that it is nearly Impossible to go log term weight loss without having Green Leafy Vegetables as in your daily diet. Please suggest how I can go ahead. My weight is 86 Kilos, height is 171 Centimeters leads BMI of 29. I am damn serious about OMAD. Just need guidance from you side on how to divide my one meal with good nutritions with all balance.

    Cream has a glycemic index of Zero. Will not break fast. But don’t get stupid with it (cream) it is calorie dense (fat cal). Fat will satiate-stave off hunger.

    I have a couple of questions. My first question is when drinking black coffee, should you be concern of the caffeine raising blood pressure? Would it be beneficial to drink organic black coffee, or herbal coffee? My next question is the supplements. Should you supplement a magnesium, and zinc along with the multivitamin/mineral since the dosages are low?

    BLACK COFFEE IS BLACK COFFEE.
    That means only coffee, black. There is nothing added. If you have coffee with cream or oil in the afternoon and you eat 2-4h later, you are on 2MAD; Two meals a day.

    Great video. I have been doing Intermittent fasting and OMAD for a few months now and am amazed at all the benefits I have gained. You have cleared up a lot of residual questions I developed over these recent months. Thanks!! One follow-up. Given that we should take supplements during meal time, should we also skip supplements during fasts that go more than 24 hours? Also, are there benefits to not taking supplements during extended fasts? Does foregoing supplements boost autophagy during fasts?

    I wasn't hungry in the beginning, but now I am more often.
    I find it difficult to workout bc my body ends up hurting. So I guess I have to find a new routine.
    My meal ends up being smaller bc I get full very quickly. It also takes me 2 to 3 hours to eat. I sometimes eat half take a break bc I feel like I may not be able to keep the food down. The meal however is super healthy. That's what worries me bc I feel like I may not be getting enough calories. Any advice? Thx.

    I've been on OMAD just shy of two months. First month I lost 30 pounds. I drink black coffee at night but in the morning use a splash of cream. When I weigh myself on day 61, if my weight loss has dramatically slowed I'll switch to only black coffee. But for now I'm thrilled with the results I've has just as things are.

    I used to eat almost every 1-2 hours all day long consuming around 4000 calories. I feel like 16/8 IF works well for me because I used to eat the worst at school so now it's perfect that I eat when I come home. I also feel fuller from the healthier foods and I already was a big water drinker but now its easy for me to drink 5-6 Liters of water.

    Love the Siesta Analogy. Most mammals will chose to rest/sleep after eating. Man is driven – as if rest is a sign of weakness. This is one of my favorite videos of yours. Mixing it up – what you eat – will tend to bring a nutritional balance. Choose wisely or at least give your choices some thought. 👍 Going to give electrolytes a shot.

    Thank you for your excellent series of videos on OMAD. I myself have been practicing OMAD and Intermittent Fasting for about 3 years now, and most of your advice rings true, as well as conforming to many of the scientific studies I have read. One point you make at around 4:40 of this video that concerns me is where you say that you eat your OMAD in the evening because "eating puts your body into a Parasympathetic state (rest and digest)". I have never seen a scientific study that establishes this point, even after searching for it specifically. As a matter of fact, there are quite a few studies that suggest that eating before sleep is not healthy, such as this one, published by the NIH, which associates obesity with eating less than 2 hours before sleep:

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3756673/

    Or this one, part of the MCC-Spain project, which found that eating close to bedtime actually raises the risk of prostate and breast cancer:

    https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1002/ijc.31649

    There are some studies that indicate that a small, nutritious meal before bed might not be deleterious, but you are advocating eating a large meal (OMAD style) in the evening, and claiming scientific justification for it. This is troubling. Please cite the study or studies you are referring to.

    Also, you advocate making carbs 10% or less of the diet, and then you go on to make the base of your food pyramid high fiber veggies. This accounts for a lot of carbs. Every time you are portraying carbs as a bad thing you go on to mention white bread, pasta and white rice. It seems like your are talking about simple and/or processed carbs when you mention carbs as a general category. If this is the case, perhaps you should clarify; it is a bit confusing and also misleading.

    Other than those two important points, I find your material very enlightening and helpful. Thank you!

Well that’s wat I did I lost 85 pounds ugh I have to due it again. But I know it will help. I don’t like to eat that way but it’s the results that count right. I use to exercise 5 days a week as well.

    I have always a big eater since I was young. The frequent eating really made me fat, almost obese. Doing OMAD really helps me keep off the weight I gained.

    I am sn older lady
    One meal is easy: you eat once and forget about it.
    I started it 3 weeks ago and it works well
    I lost weight
    I chose mid day which for Italians is the heaviest meal and because in the evening asthma is aggravated by foods
    I prepare the ingredients the night before so I do not overeat

    Interesting but I prefer not to eat in the evening when the melatonin is on the rise since it inhibits insulin. I want the body to rest not take care of digestion in a non optimal way.

    Unless you have a specific condition that’s been shown to benefit from probiotics, you likely don’t need them.

    “There is no evidence that it is essential to take probiotics to be healthy,”
    You need probiotics if your microbiome (i.e. your gut health) is messed up. This means that taking probiotics can be very helpful if you suffer from a condition such as irritable bowel disease.

    But if not, then your use of probiotics might not be doing as much good as you hoped.

    Time-restricted eating can also be beneficial for gut repair since research shows fasting effects your gut microbiome. By fasting, you can reduce gut inflammation and increase gut microbiota diversity to help heal digestive problems

    quick question, if you please: I am doing OMAD (romaine lettuce, avocado, olive oil, chia and flax seeds, brie, pecans, sardines or salmon, and/or eggs and avocado with brie) but the only luxury i afford myself is coffee with 1/2-1/2 and stevia. Question – is the coffee with 1/2-1/2 and stevia sabotaging my 23 hour fast???

I know thats a lot to take in but praise God I've learned so much from all the good drs who really care about people and want to see people heal! I've lost 36 lbs since the second week in april 2019! I've been doing omad for about 2 weeks. I feel better than I did in my thirties and forties. Im now 50! I'm off my prescription meds and bp better now than with meds!

    A difficulty i have on OMAD is that after a prolonged period of fasting my stomach doesn't tolerate that much food, so the "Everyday?" advice is really useful ✌🏻✌🏻

    I am confused about how or even if, consuming fat, like cream in coffee breaks a fast. Firstly, let’s assume that breaking a fast in this context means having food that causes a rise in blood sugar or insulin. All the medical resources I have read state that pure fat has no or very little effect on either. Yet the advice here is that cream should be very restricted or avoided totally during a fast in order not to break it as if this is self evident. Why would too much cream in coffee break a fast?

    I never feel hungry is this normal? I am on OMAD because I don’t feel like eating and I eat because it’s been 24 hours since my last meal should I do something or am doing fine

    For hunger, I use a pinch of course sea salt if I do get hungry under my tongue, it might not be the best but it works for me.

    Hello, so happy I’ve come across your informative videos. I’m currently doing the 16:8 fasting and I’ll ease into OMAD. However, when I did a test drive of OMAD, I experienced bloating which was obviously not comfortable. Does this happen on OMAD? Thank you.

    Day 2 of omad! I’m super hungry but I’m gonna keep going. Wish me luck

    Day 6 of OMAD: I’ve lost 3 lbs and I’m not hungry anymore, only right before I eat. I also cut out sugar too so that is helping with my weight loss.

    Day 8: I’m down 4 lbs and I’m not as hungry.

    Eggcellent info as always, Dr. Z. I didn't see the link for the ACV fasting drink, can you you send it please? I don't like the stuff (taste/smell), right now my ACV drink is 2 tablespoons of Bragg ACV, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1 teaspoon of pink Himalayan salt, 1 teaspoon of stevia, juice of 1 lemon, in one quart of filtered water.

    I did OMAD for 7 days (lost 18.2 pounds) and i'm loosing 2,6 pounds per day, here's what i do:

    Morning: Black Coffee, Water, 45min Walk (2miles walking)
    Afternoon: Lunch (Salad, Fat, Protein 800kcal sort of) and take a carb block pill 30min before, and only drink liquids after 1h let your body digest your food
    Evening: Workout 1 hour, then go outside and walk 6 miles or 10k steps, you'll burn 700kcal at least depending on your intensity so you burned your lunch food.
    Night: Hibiscus tea for detox, and sleep 8 hours, the more you sleep the more you burn fat! if you sleep less hours your cortisol hormone will make it harder for you to burn while sleeping!

    tips: eat your daily food before 7pm, because since child your body is programed to start decreasing your system functions at 8pm preparing you to sleep, so your metabolism will slow down, causing you to sleep bad, and awake tired, all of this happens because your eye retina has a function to let your body know it's getting dark, time to bed!

    Drink liquids 1h after eating, your stomach works with heat, and people usually drink cold liquids with tons of sugar, the cold drink will reset your stomach and stop your digesting protocol, to make the cold liquid hotter, and it will digest first the liquid because it has sugar, then your food, making you feel hunger after 1h/2h of eating

    Use HCG hormone, ask your doctor how to, it doesnt have side effects, will make your body look thinner, helps to loose weight and shrink your waist, fat people when they loose weight their body looks awfull and flabby this hormone will take care of that!

    Hunger: Drink warm water with lemon, if you do this i can offer you a burger and you won't accept it, takes away your hunger 150%

    Meal: Use apple vinegar helps you loose weight, for meal here's the scheme (FAT+PROTEIN) OR (CARBS+PROTEIN) never mix carbs with fat, and if you choose carbs make sure it has fiber, (CARBS WITH NO FIBER – MAKES YOU FAT) (CARBS WITH FIBER – LOOSE WEIGHT)

    Use weight loss apps to track your history, and take one photo of your body per day and track your results
