Longevity & Why I now eat One Meal a Day


Longevity & Why I Eat Once a Day
Nutrition & Our Hybrid Body In the 1950’s, my friend Bill was a very
gifted Engineer who made an extraordinary car. The car’s main fuel source was electricity,
and gasoline was to be put in whenever available. It was fine for the car to use gasoline every
other day or so, but the problem was that people ran it on gasoline nearly 90% of the
time. This resulted in the car breaking down frequently,
all the while Bill was trying to tell people “Use it the way it was designed!” Despite his advice, people continued to theorize
about how to properly use the car. Bill went bankrupt and left the Automotive
industry soon after. This situation my poor imaginary friend Bill
found himself in is quite like our modern Health Environment. How did eating get so complicated? Most of us just want to feel good, look good
and live a long life. You would think by now there would be a straightforward
consensus on what our eating habits should look like, but we’re faced with countless
trains of thought on the topic. Maybe we’re supposed to be doing the ABC
diet or XYZ diet or something in between? One of the first “diets” was proposed
by a man named George Cheyne in 1724. Now, on Amazon you can find over 50,000 different
books on the topic. Like Bill’s car, surely there is a simple
way we should be fueling our bodies that is most suitable for its design. Obviously we’re not engineered, but we Homo
Sapiens emerged around 200,000 years ago and the majority of that time, the food environment
could not have been anything like today’s food environment. Agriculture didn’t even exist for a good
190,000 years of that time. Not even the fruits and vegetables we have
today would have been similar as we hadn’t cultivated them to our liking. Just 700 years ago here’s what a banana
would have looked like. So what way of eating did we adapt to? The environment would have chosen our diet
rather than us. Your choices would have been to eat what was
available or be dead. The idea that our body must have adapted to
a certain ratio of macronutrients available in the environment is not novel; and recently
has become quite well known due to the “Paleo Diet”. However, what I’m getting at is our body
would have also had to have adapted to how often the food was available – there should
be a natural frequency of eating that promotes health and longevity. Where to start? The logic would be that more nourishment,
more food would make you healthier and live longer. But let’s take a look at this from the First
Principles method as described by Elon Musk: “It’s kind of mentally easier to reason
by analogy rather than from first principles. First Principles is kind of a Physics way
of looking at the world. And what that really means is you kind of
boil things down to the most fundamental truths and say ‘OK what are we sure is true?’
and then reason up from there. That takes a lot more mental energy.” So what do we know about longevity? Other than exercise, the word “superfood”
might come to mind. Maybe more Omega-3’s or some Red Wine or
making sure to take supplements and drink less alcohol. There are a lot of things that contribute
to longevity, but there is one method accepted by science that you can use to consistently
increase longevity. “If I take any organism on the planet earth
from yeast cells to spiders, insects, rabbits, dogs… and I reduce their caloric intake
by 30%, they live 30% longer. The only organism which has not yet been deliberately
tested by scientists are Homo-Sapiens!” Let’s start here. For some time, the conventional wisdom has
been that you need to get 3 balanced meals a day to stay healthy. Ever since I was a kid, “Breakfast, Lunch
and Dinner” seemed as natural as sleeping or going to the bathroom. Breakfast was the most important meal of the
day, I needed a healthy lunch to focus the rest of the school day and being sent to bed
without Dinner was child abuse. The situation is basically the same in Japan
where I now live, as with the rest of the world. If we want to reduce caloric intake to increase
lifespan, the only choice then is to eat less at each meal, because we need 3 meals, right? But where did this 3 meals a day idea come
from? As Abigail Carroll suggests in her book “Three
Squares: The Invention of the American Meal”: Eating three meals a day was basically invented
due to culture, When European settlers got to America, they found Native Americans were
basically just eating whenever they felt the urge to, rather than at specified times. The Europeans took their lack of defined eating
times as evidence that they were uncivilized and had them change. In short: The 3 meals a day paradigm is not
based off of our biological needs. How our environment designed us
In a Hunter Gatherer culture it wasn’t surprising at all to feast on a big catch, then survive
on very little or no food for an extended period of time until they were in need of
another big source of fat and protein. In fact, the environment up until now would
suggest that if we could not do that, we probably wouldn’t be alive to be reading about dieting. The Pirahã people, an indigenous hunter-gatherer
group of the Amazon Rainforest was extensively studied by an anthropological linguist named
Daniel Everett. He found they do not eat every day or even
attempt to do so. They were even aware of food storage techniques
yet never used them except to barter with Brazilian traders. When questioned about why they do not store
food for themselves they explained “I store meat in the belly of my brother”. Until the advent of Agriculture, eating 3
meals a day and in some cases even eating every day was a near impossibility. Some of you may be pointing to the fact that
the life expectancy in the Paleolithic era was much lower than now at around 33 years,
as a sign that our modern eating habits are healthier. However, infant mortality rate was a big factor
in bringing that number down. You have to understand that one of the effects
of modern civilization and technology is that you can be unresourceful or made up of weak
genetic material and not die. As Doug McGuff explains about the life expectancy
back then: “It didn’t really have anything to do with anabolic catabolic balance or long
term health benefits because there were older survivors and the fossil evidence of those
older survivors based on ligamentous attachments and bony assessment and bone mineral density
was: they were extraordinarily robust.” Glucose Metabolism & How “conventional wisdom”
screwed us The common misconception is that a stable
blood glucose is necessary for survival, which would biologically justify 3 meals a day. Bear with me through a bit of Biochemistry
to understand why constantly consuming Carbohydrates to maintain blood glucose is not only unnecessary
but can be a detrimental and vicious cycle. So, After you eat some carbohydrates- Bread,
Pasta, Candy, Whatever. Glucose enters the bloodstream and insulin
is secreted to distribute the glucose properly. Via an insulin receptor, glucose enters the
cells to produce energy. This can only happen at a certain rate, so
to overload the cell with glucose or have glucose sit in the bloodstream, 70 grams can
be stored in the liver and 200 grams in the muscle. So you have your morning bagel and some Frappa-
“Whatever you want, some vanilla bullshit latte cappa thing, you know whatever you got,
I don’t care.” and you’ve stored all the glucose you can store. So it has to go into your body fat. As well as storing it as energy, your body
puts it in your body fat because the fat cells have less complex machinery as the other cells. Too much glucose can bind to the proteins
and muck up the machinery of the cells in a harmful inflammatory process called Glycation. It’s kind of like pouring pancake syrup into
a car engine. The problem here is that if your energy levels
start to wane, you can’t tap the energy out of your stored body fat because the hormone
that does that- hormone sensitive lipase is sensitive to insulin. Insulin will not allow you to tap body fat
for energy. If you have a bunch of insulin sitting in
your blood from processing a bunch of glucose before and you need energy, you’re going to
get ravenously hungry and will need to jack your blood sugar up short term with a snack
or something to raise your energy levels again. This is why if you’re following the recommended
American diet, you’re usually going to be stuck in this loop of wanting to eat every
time your blood glucose drops and 3 meals a day will feel very necessary. Even Medical Doctor Peter Attia fell victim
to this: “Despite exercising 3 or 4 hours every single day and following the food pyramid
to the letter, I gained a lot of weight and developed something called ‘Metabolic Syndrome’
“ Ketosis to the rescue
If you stop eating glucose for about 10 to 12 hours, your glucose stores will deplete
and your body will start breaking down fat so that the liver can produce something called
Ketone bodies. Ketone bodies produce energy for your cells
through similar pathways as glucose but are much more stable, efficient and don’t cause
complications like we just talked about. You may have heard of this Ketosis state referred
to as “Starvation Mode” in school, but this by no means suggests you are about to
starve. I particularly dislike this term because it
suggests that glucose/carbohydrates is our body’s primary fuel source, when in fact
it is possible to live entirely without carbohydrates. “Humans have absolutely no requirement for
Carbohydrate. Not 1 gram do we require. We have this fabulous liver that produces
as much glucose as you require.” Case in point: A 456 pound 27 year old man
in Scotland fasted an incredible 382 days consuming only water and vitamin supplements. He lost 276 pounds and completed the fast
with no ill effects. He was technically in “Starvation mode”
this entire time and his body was using his stored body fat for energy. Quick note: Ketosis and Diabetic KetoAcidosis
are NOT the same thing. Several years back, when I first heard about
low carb diets, I was skeptical and frankly when I heard my close friend’s mother was
trying the Atkins diet, I was worried for her. However, after understanding the biochemistry
behind it, I started doing the ‘Paleo diet’. I felt great in general, had a better physique
with less effort and much more stable energy levels. The downside was it got kind of annoying to
have to plan my meals so much, so I would cheat a lot here and there. The Benefits of Fasting
Even after people were in environments where they could eat much more frequently, the concept
of fasting for health benefits has been around for some time. An Egyptian Pyramid Inscription from around
3800 B.C. reads “Humans live on one-quarter of what they eat; on the other three-quarters
lives their doctor.” Plato apparently fasted for greater mental
efficiency, the “Luther of Medicine” Philippus Paracelsus called fasting “the greatest
remedy” and Mark Twain suggested fasting to be more effective than any medicine. The Romans even found that they cure people
who were possessed with demons by shutting them in a room without food. To simplify an incredibly complex process,
aging in essence is the result of cumulative damage to your DNA. Professor of Genetics, David Sinclair and
his team found that not eating stimulates the Sirtuin proteins which are directly responsible
for DNA repair. Professor of Neuroscience Mark Mattson, at
John Hopkins University Neuroscience showed how fasting promotes the growth of new neurons
in the brain. This explains why fasting has been linked
to the prevention of neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. This information got me excited about Intermittent
fasting. With intermittent fasting you’re not eating
for 16 hours of the day which gives your body time to deplete the glucose stores and start
burning fat as well as reap the benefits discussed above. So many sources are pointing to the key here
being that whether you are doing extended fasting, intermittent fasting or simply eating
less, you are giving your body a chance to deplete its Glucose stores and dip into ketosis,
leading to the health benefits discussed. I was keen on the fact that I could get similar
effects to Paleo with more leeway in my diet. The problem with Intermittent Fasting was
I found with myself craving food outside of the 8 hour eating period, and I still had
to be somewhat strict with what I ate (although not as strict as my 3 meals a day regimin) Upton Sinclair who was born in the the late
1800’s and lived to the swell age of 90, published a book in 1911 called “The Fasting
Cure”. The book was inspired by the personal accounts
of 250 people who cured some ailment with extended fasting. The ailments ranged from colds, headaches,
constipation to arthritis, valvular heart disease and cancer. Dr. Alan Goldhamer spoke about how in 2012,
a 42 year old patient cured her cancer (stage 3 follicular lymphoma) with a 21 day fast. All this opened me up to try my first week
long fast… but I ended up around the 4th day even though I didn’t feel particularly
bad. While I missed my goal and I didn’t really
feel all that different afterward, over the following days I started to notice something. I used to enjoy eating some refined sugar
crap here and there, but after the fast I wasn’t so interested. It was like it reset my eating preferences. Around this time I came across a book called
“Kuufuku ga hito o kenkou ni suru” – by Dr. Yoshinori Nagumo. The title means ”Hunger makes people healthy”. And it provides an incredibly compelling argument
for limiting yourself to one meal per day. It touched upon many of the things I’ve
talked about here, some things I didn’t and it dispelled some worries I had like malnutrition
and whatnot. (Also, It was easy to trust him since he’s
30 years older than me and looks younger than I do.) I decided to try eating once per day for 2
weeks. For 3 weeks prior to starting, I had been
showing my little sister around Tokyo while eating basically anything and everything that
looked good. I started the Nagumo plan the day after she
left and the first three days were definitely the hardest. When the clock hit around 11AM, I realized
I wasn’t getting the joy from eating that I was used to around this time of day and
started really wanting to eat. My stomach didn’t particularly hurt, it
was the equivalent of not being able to play video games when getting home from Middle
School. Around 4PM was when I was convinced that I
was really hungry and needed to eat. Waiting another 30 minutes until 4.30PM to
eat was like pushing through a last set of squats. The next two days were slightly easier, and
come the 4th day I realized I wasn’t looking at the clock thinking “Ah…Only 4 more
hours to go!”. A week later I decided to put the diet to
the test by doing a 50 kilometer bike ride to Atsugi from Tokyo. I hadn’t been working out all that much
and a usual bike ride for me was about 3 kilometers. It was unsurprisingly difficult, but I never
felt really physically weak. I had hunger pangs earlier than normal, but
I didn’t feel like I had less strength from a lack of food. This made me decide to stick with eating once
per day. It’s been a month since I started and I
feel great in general, my energy levels are very stable, I feel more focused and surprisingly
I have less problems with hunger compared to Intermittent Fasting. Even if I don’t eat the healthiest meal
I can now feel confident that my body will have more than enough time to empty out whatever
excess glucose or toxins I ingested. (The only time I do crave unhealthy food is
when I’ve had some alcohol.) Looking back, it’s hard to imagine having
to pile so much food into my stomach throughout the day. Other than the health benefits, one other
reason I do this is the same reason Steve Jobs wore basically the same thing everyday:
It makes choosing easier and it frees my brain up to focus on other things. At least For myself, the amount of new information
I get only changes my behavior by a small factor. For example if I increase my knowledge about
the detriments of alcohol by say… 60% maybe I’ll cut my intake by 30%. With this article alone I’m not expecting
you to suddenly start eating once per day, but hopefully you can start giving your body
a break and eat when you need to, not when the clock says you should. If you liked this, be sure to subscribe. I’m trying my best to have a new video out
at least every two weeks so stay tuned. You can see my last video here.

  1. For the last 4 weeks I have started eating once a day and before 6:00pm. If I feel hungry later on I will have crackers with cheese or just crackers. With a lot of water too. I try eating salads and different ways to loose weight, they didn’t work. I have a lower back injury from work and exercise is very painful but I still try moving my legs while seating and going window shopping. I think is working but I am loosing muscle mass On my breasts and that I don’t like. I was hoping to loose some of my belly fat. I gain because of my injury. Any recommendations? Thank you for the video. 😊👍

  2. I fast for 24 hours on monday, wednesday and friday and eat one meal a day on tuesday thursday saturday and sunday. plus im a vegetarian. works for me!

  3. So the Europeans came to America n told the native Americans that they need to eat 3 times a day verses anytime they want lol I'm.sure there were waaaay more lard asses in Europe than in America what's else did the Europeans do after lol I'm sure they didn't have native Americans best interest in mind

  4. No I think you're absolutely right once a day at the best way to eat however my stomach just won't do it Easter problems and I tried toam I feeding window window but it didn't really work for me because of the pain in my stomach so now I'm back to where I was better now

  5. I've been eating once a day for almost 2 years now. I did start exercising around the same time, but not only have I lost a lot of weight (about 80 pounds), I also feel a lot better in general.

  6. Stop stereo typing communal Native Americans diet before arrival of capitalist – we First Nations Peoples were fasting (a part of our religion) way before arrival of capitalism – thumbs down for not getting first hand facts from true source.

  7. Just as I'm waking up, so is my body, organs. I am not a fan of breakfast. Never had been. Well, I eat breakfast, just not at breakfast time. It doesn't seem right to make my body go from 0 to 100 mph every morning.
    I have always been, for the most part, a 1 meal a day person. I even have/do forget to even eat someways. I think to myself, I should eat but then before I know it, I can't be bothered. I figure my body doesn't need it.
    There are times when I eat much more through the day. And I get strong cravings for particular food. Not like junk food or my favorites. Like suddenly I need to eat meat, or a whole spoonfuls of peanut butter. then for a week straight I just eat soup of vegetables I threw together. There is no pattern to my eating habits. No real thought or planning to it.
    I'm not saying I'm a healthy eater, I just seem to eat at a time and what I eat by what seems like instinct (some non instinct, like I love chips).
    One day I just might boil a bunch of potatoes and eat that, the next I'll cook chicken and just eat that for the day, then the next make a plate of meat potatoes vegies and a chunck of cheese and have some fruit then maybe toast and mustard. Nothing for a day or just a can of tuna. When I am craving something, it usually a type rather than a preference.

  8. You cannot possibly get all the vitamins, minerals, and essential oils that you need unless it is 24 course meal! You are probably deficient in many things. Only a test can tell. You are deceiving yourself.

  9. Since a child I only ate one meal a day. I drove my mom crazy. She eat around the clock and does not gain weight. I don't have trouble with gaining weight. I just always ate one meal a day and still do

  10. I have been fasting and eating once a day for two months now. It is definitely a long haul but I am starting to see results now. I have lost 14 pounds and most of it came off in the second month. I am also doing keto now and this has helped speed up my metabolism a bit but what really made me lose weight is adding in 30 to 45 minutes of moderate intensity bike riding every day. I started losing half a pound every single day.

    A typical days meal is about 4 to 6 ounces of ribeye steak, and a humongous salad, and sometimes as a dessert I will eat one or 2 tablespoons of peanut butter or a couple strips of string cheese.

    Other days I eat two cans of tuna with mayonnaise and a humongous salad.

    On days when I’m fed up with salads, I eat my greens as a smoothie. I prepare the smoothie with a humongous amount of spring mix, coconut milk, which must be unsweetened, vanilla extract, and Stevia.

    My salads usually consist of spring mix, a small amount of walnuts chopped up, dried cranberries, a small amount of blue cheese, bacon bits, and my own dressing which is a mixture of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. I always add salt and pepper to my salads

  11. Low carb is important. I'd pay special attention to avoiding fructose though. Fructose produces 10 times the amount of AGEs as glucose. Fructose is used to produce triglyceride in the liver. Fructose composes half of the sucrose molecule. It's also half the sugar in high fructose corn syrup.

  12. This is fascinating research. However it does not necessarily mean you will live longer. You may be healthier, but longevity is tied to genetics. I recently lost a dear friend who was 101 years old. She smoked for 30 years, drank, and liked cheese… a lot. For the last 6 years her diet was Ensure and champagne.

  13. Not to nitpick, but theres dieting in the bible. Definitely been around a lot longer than a couple hundred years

  14. To offer some perspective, I'm 76-years of age., (One Meal a Day) I have Breakfast at about 7pm, to both maximise my zero-food hours and reduce the amount of alcohol I might drink in the evening, Over the decades I've learnt to have tea and coffee without sugar, and long decades ago that became the "new normal" I also consume lots of green tea during the day; to remain hydrated; to sleep well, and to make it easy to defer eating. For me, it works and I'm losing weight, my diaphragm is no-longer squeezing my heart and lungs; reducing my lung capacity; plus overall feeling that Im on the right path and getting results, a winning formula, at least for me; consider trying it?., Best wishes to all…

  15. What up y'all Im a long time hip hop artist jumping out into my solo venture….I'll be releasing unique/different songs every friday produced and written by me. I'm telling you…I'm the guy you wanna put your money on and follow. This is destiny for me especially with all of my work in bands and indy hip hop groups in the past. I love y'all and appreciate your time. Come give your boy a look. Stick with me….platinum record are on the way. No lie. -SlumLord Kennedy

  16. The world's gone mad. Everywhere, but everywhere there's Food and drink available! On the train stations, bus stations, not to mention ( massively overpriced) airports, on the streets, the gyms, take aways , Burger bars😏 donuts,Pizzas and other kinds of artificial and junk. People think that they should be eating all the time!! And holding a latte or bottle of water 😶. When in god's name did we always need to carry water.. ?? People eat far too much! Just saying….

  17. Yo big ups! I’m also in Tokyo and gained a bunch of weight thanks to depression from working at a soul crushing Japanese company.

    While I’m not quite up to OMAD like yourself, I am doin IF and keto with the occasional multi day fasts. Dropped 6 kg in less than a month.

    Thanks for this vid. Just motivates me more to keep on it!

  18. When i was a kid we did have three meals a day and i was very active. Lunch at 12 noon the main meal 6pm, used to get real hungry. With no shops for miles i really looked forward to dinner.
    I now only eat once a day except for when i cycle when i eat an energy boost before hand.
    Not always doing things right, i now 50 and 40 years with a flat stomach. If my clothes don't fit i don't buy the next size up, I get on my bike.

  19. Before doing a keto diet and IF, I would have thought eating once a day was truly nuts! Now, eating 3 meals a day sounds nuts!

  20. I know someone who is very methodical, more like taught to EAT whenever the time comes that they were taught to eat, despite being "One" with their body, like not being hungry. I keep asking, "Are you REALLY SURE you are hungry or do you feel compelled to eat because you were taught to?" They said they didn't know, just that they felt hungry or that they heard their gut growling, so they said they had to feed it. I asked, "But, are you hungry when you hear your gut growl, or is it just gas going through your system or digestion noises? Do you feel you must feed yourself every time you hear your gut make noises???" They said yes. They were also very overweight!!

  21. 15:45 Thats not how that works, its all about the source of the info learned and results of the source that determine the actual probabilities. Otherwise I can say I watched 5% of new content from news and I can guarantee 95% is about Trump in 2019. The source here is realistically correct as the news these days seem to be off a forced narrative.

  22. My brother in law ate once a day for years he's now type 2 and almost every artery in his legs and stomach are blocked or degraded. He's going through hell.

  23. I tried but could not follow this explanation. Me I eat 5 or 6 small meals a day and that works great for me. If I ate only one Id feel awful. Bloated stuffed etc.
    This would not work for me.

  24. I have mild insomnia. After juicing daily and eating small meals of vegetables and water. I started getting deep sleep for the first time in years. Going back to this after a friend mine had a stroke at age 43.

  25. I've been eating once a day for half of my life without even realizing about this one meal a day thing was a thing. Never felt hungry or needed more calories than those in a single meal and I've always been told I look younger than I am.

  26. Two years ago l started eating one meal a day in a very small amount. Not only l am underweight now, but my puberty also reverts to when l was twelve years old. l also sounds like a boy.

  27. Intermittent fasting messed up my gallbladder and now I have constant gallbladder pain. Going back to regular eating habits doesn't seem to be helping. What should I do?

  28. i dont think one meal is particularly natural or biologically intended though. What about nomadic/regular gathering habits, eating what you can find over the day while you search for game or travel

  29. i eat one meal a day….sort of….
    when i wake up i drink a coke and 2 pieces of rye bread…. to shock my system ( caffeine..i dont drink coffee) so….little carbs, sugar and fiber..

    then if i can hold out 4 or 5 pm….eat my one meal…
    usually a wrap….with either beef or chicken ( protein) with lettuce and tomatoes…. and a tiny bit of cheese, the amount of protein is no more then 1/8 of a pound esch meal….i eat about a pound of ground beef in a week…so thats a guesstimate on the 1/8….

    anyhow…
    i also eat some chips, and chocolate cookies…as a treat…

    your probably laughing by now..but thats ok…i am currently losing weight… so 🤪

    btw , i dont drink alcohol either…rubbing or otherwise

    btw, i forgot to add, that i drink water, but add super diluted kool aid…i know that sounds funny..but it works for me..i dont care for straight water…

  30. Michio Kaku. The guy who says “We shoot lasers into Hurricanes to stoke them, make them more powerful so they drop more rain.”
    Great, if they’re over Calif during fires!

  31. I eat when i need to, but i dont eat junk or factory-processed foods. When i exercise, i eat more. When i'm not so busy, i do full day fasting once or twice in a week. Once, my eating was super complicated when I do keto. It doesn't give any benefit to me except for weight loss. Everybody shouldn't rely on someone else's theory when it comes about eating habit. Discover your own diet pattern as long as what you eat and drink are nutritious.

  32. Very dangerous. Many nutrients are water-soluble such as vitamin C which means that our body doesn't store it rather it uses what it needs for a given period and eliminates the rest through our urine. Also, protein is absorbed the same way. Our body uses what it needs and eliminates the rest through a bowel movement. By eating once a day, we are restricting these nutrients from being available to our bodies when we need it. Best to eat three or four times a day.

  33. I've been eating one meal a day since high school. I'm 34 now. Nobody ever believes me when I tell them how old I am, usually they think I'm in my mid 20s. I just kind of eat whatever I want for dinner, but by no means a bigger meal to make up for the lack of breakfast and lunch. If I had to estimate I'd say I probably eat 700-1000 calories a day and take a multivitamin. Occasionally, I'll eat more, occasionally less, and sometimes go a day or two without eating anything. So i'm pretty sure there is something to this.

  34. I loved the information, story telling and images. This content was very well put together. Thank you. I find that with a more sedative lifestyle, eating more also aids in poor health and obesity. But when I listen to my body, eat once a day and with intermittent fasting, I feel better and I have more optimum health. 🙏🏾

  35. I think what you are saying is correct-adults don’t need 3 squares a day… but kids and growing individuals need constant fuel.

  36. I was constantly hungry when I was an omnivore; now that I eat zero carbs I'm not as hungry, eat less and appreciate my food much more.

  37. I've plateaued with Keto and Intermittent fasting and exercising. I came across this video looking for answers. I believe this is my next step. Adding the 1 meal per day at give me the edge I need! Thank you. I found it very interesting and easy to follow.

  38. I'm starting a one meal a day program while going to the gym and working 12 hours a shift aswell.
    PS- talk about jumping in the deep end.

  39. I started eating a meal a day in Middleschool. I was never really hungry for breakfast, and I didn't have a lot of friends, so I avoided the cafeteria during lunch.

  40. Ok 1 meal a day ( I see some post below ) people are saying thats the way to eat – are you a librarian or a construction worker? Do you go to the gym and lift and then run for 30 minutes? or do you have a job where you sit all day??? all this comes into play…are you a walking toothpick or muscled up chump?? Do you eat Organic ? if so how do you afford it???
