    Really...
    There are lots of much taller ladies here that need to lose weight that have to eat WAY less than that. Like 700-900 calories less. I don't understand the auto-response some people on these boards have towards telling people to eat MORE...

    @Crissy-
    I love, love, love the IF eat once, maybe twice if there is a smaller snack, a day style...

    Well it has been around 8 hours since I ate last and I have been starving since noon -- about 4 hours! haha.. so I sat down and had a small salad with ground meat and olive oil and some berries w/ nuts. No big. I know per 'primer' that is will take me a while to move my meal to night time. I won't be able to eat until 930 tomorrow -- I am going to try a little harder to suck it up until bed - I am not trying to restrict, but moving from 2 meals to 1 means I did restrict this morning - there was really no way I could have eaten anymore than I did.

    Oh well - still a great day!

    I am planning on adding some carbs to my 1 meal since it will be after a heavy training session - I was going to try to stay low carb - but I want to keep my strength up.

    I went through a phase of one meal a day and I found it hard to get the nutrition that I need. I've gone with lunch and dinner for about two years now. I had to eat big and that got old quickly especially on days when I had social outing and the like.

    Yeah I could see how it would get tough and especially trying to get enough protein. Really I am doing it so I can limit my intake. I LOVE to eat and I don't like feeling guilty over wanted to be full or really full..so this is me attempting to work within my wacked out psychology! lol -- If it gets too hard I may go to more of a warrior, a little meal and a big meal, that was kind of what I was doing then the little meal got big too.

    Oops I don't know how I missed this earlier.


    You are right about eating less - I am doing this so I can stuff myself only once a day and not multiple times a day! haha I also HATE tracking - I do it periodically to keep myself honest, but once I can really nail this one meal a day thing I will stop.

    Didn't sleep too well. Pretty hungry last night. I am going to work out around 8 and then hang out with the kiddos at my mom in law's so this should put off my meal quite a bit. I am thinking around noon. I am going to do a mini meal @ noon and a bigger meal at 6pm and keep pushing my mini meal back until it gets to one.

    2 tall Americanos before workout - no they won't be decaf -- I can't just have one - moderation is NOT in my vocabulary.

    Workout:

    Deadlift/Pull Ups/Bench Press/Split Squat/Dips

    12:00 Mini Meal:

    Greek Yogurt w/ blackberries, strawberries & almonds

    6:00 Meal:
    1 Can organic pumpkin
    1/2 pound 91 Grass Fed Ground Beef
    Cod liver oil
    6 Eggs
    1 small jar Tomato Paste
    Broccoli

    AHH..my workout sucked! I put a order in for some BCAA's with the least amount of crap in them.

    Today is going great besides that - lots of energy.

    I'm raising my hairy knuckled hand, as I do generally tend to advise, "try eating more(fat, protein calories,_____)".... I do know there are many many Buddhist monks worldwide who eat 1 or 2 meals a day, every day, for many years & decades. Of course they are a lot more sedentary than the majority of you fit Grokettes. But some of them are active gardeners & some do walk a lot. My point is, less calories is fine, 1 meal a day is fine.

    I personally function better on a high fat diet & 2-3 meals a day, I grok'd that back in the '90s.... I've done 1-2 meals a day, it just slows down my metabolism & makes me more tired & less happy

    I have heard from a few people that they hit a wall at a certain point. I am sure this does happen - your metabolism always slows down when you eat less.

    I am really trying to find a way to take my lack of moderation and turn it into a positive. I don't think this 1 meal a day is an all or nothing venture. I am thinking of keeping it to one meal a day on the days I know I will be going out to eat with family or friends so I can indulge without blowing my entire week.

    Today we went to a steak house on the boardwalk and I was able to eat what I wanted and not stress - can't over do it when you aren't eating junk all day.

    Thanks for the input! love other people's perspective for sure.

    So here is how the weekend shook down.

    I worked out Saturday..like I said before it sucked. Then I tried to stuff myself silly to make it to the next day without eating again. Sheesh.. what a goofy thing to do.. we had a babysitter and the hubs wanted to go out to eat and a movie - well I didn't ruin our night by saying.. oh honey I already ate a meal the size of our dining room table.. so I had a little pizza and little ice cream.. around midnight and we went and saw Ted..which by the way is hilarious...very dirty, but very funny.

    I managed to get my one meal today late and I think I am finally at a point where it will remain late.. woo hoo.. very happy. We had a blast with our kiddos playing on the boardwalk and riding rides....so fun.

    1 meal a day most days will be my goal... but I don't plan on being super rigid... just rigid enough to not gain weight, maintain and keep building strength..

    I am most interested in getting my deadlift to 1.5 times my bodyweight before this year is out.

    1 - 2 meals workout days... 1 meal for sure on the weekend just in case we go out... feels like a solid plan!
