Ok thanks! My main foods are eggs, chicken, big salads (not this week), and steak/salmon when i can afford it. I eat apples/berries here and there, but i'd rather have my carbs come from vegetables. Ima try this one meal a day thing. Today I tried a 3 hour eating window starting at noon, it's 6 pm now and i'm not hungry and i feel good
How much fat do you eat and what are favorite fatty foods?
I don't have time to pack lunch so i buy baked chicken thighs at the grocery store near me. I hope they use primal cooking oils. 2 for $3.00 though (cooked right before lunch time, not packaged)
It's *really* hard to overeat when you only eat once a day. In fact I found when I was only eating once a day that I was struggling to eat sufficient total calories (and getting mildly depressed with cold hands/feet in the afternoon, which had NEVER happened to me before). Adding a couple of cream based desserts let me increase the energy total, but it ended up being easier to just start having breakfast again.
Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like the Perfect Health Diet a lot.

Damn, is it that big of a deal if they did use those oils? I eat well with everything else, but lunch is limited since i only buy what's around my work
I just called the cooked foods department at the grocery store. They said they cook the chicken thighs in the oven and it's in its own grease, they don't use oils for chicken. Not sure if i believe them, but i have no choice of food selection around here.

But if you're eating only once a day, it's easiest to make your meal in the evening, after you return home from work. Then you can control everything that goes in it.
And it's probably cheaper on the budget too.
It may not be ideal, but its better than a bear claw . Anytime you don't prepare your own food your at the mercy of some ingredients you would likely leave out given your own choice. I wouldn't be overly concerned about it though unless you are extremely unhealthy and need to be 100% strict. At least being baked its not as likely to be swimming in bad oils. Possibly just a bit brushed on.
