    I just really like the convenience of not making and carrying food to work with me. It's just easier to get up in the morning, brew some coffee and get dressed for work. Grab my cup and go to work.

    At work on my breaks I can surf the web, read, whatever. No worries that I have to finish my meal before lunch is over. Then when I get home I can eat the way I like to- with my shoes off. I don't know what it is. Food tastes better with your shoes off. Anthony Bourdain said it once, and I've discovered it to be true.

    I just started eating the one main meal a day, I have been eating primal for a year. It is so much easier, and more convenient to eat that way. There are dishes from only one meal each day, and I have found so far that I plan my meals to be extra good, and I am thinking about using the crock pot so that I can get it all set up, and going when I would normally be cooking, and eating breakfast, then when I get home I can have a workout, or walk, shower, eat. I have also found that about 2 hours after eating I want to sleep. It works great I just have to make sure that I eat about two hours before I want to go to bed, relax for those two hours, and then sleep.

    I still have about 10 lbs of stubborn fat to get rid of so I am mostly snacking on berries for the antioxidants since the belly fat is usually where crap gets stored. I used to have to have my breakfast, or else I would be miserable all day, but following the Warrior/Primal diet it is so easy to fast durring the day. Only problem is I just played late night hockey for the first time since starting this, and I will have to work out a way to have a bit more energy for hockey since I start at either 9:15, or 10:15, and get home at 12:00-1:00 after an hour and fifteen minuts of playing. I tried having a smaller meal at about 5 last night, but I might move it up to 4:00 followed by a nap. I don't play again until Jan 4 so I have soem time to figure it out.

    So, where is everyone on this one meal a day? Still at it? Did you meet your goal?

    Yes and yes, though more as personal preference than means to an end.

    I've been doing the one meal plan for quite some time now (I think almost a year) and I have no plans to change that.

    Mostly. I sometimes get hungry at around 3pm. I either ignore it, drink a cup of coffee with a half tablespoon of butter, or eat something small like a couple of hard boiled eggs.

    If I ignore it, I eat a very large one meal for the day pretty late in the day. Otherwise, I guess it's one snack and a meal.

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    Been a one meal guy for most of two years now... The biggest benefit isn't to my physical health, but the absolute freedom from being tied down to the kitchen all the time.

    I get it all back for work, play, and learning!

The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

    Love this.

    I think everything in life is better with your shoes off! I hate wearing shoes.
