It was my wife that got me started on OMAD. I thought it was just another crazy weight loss program that she would eventually get frustrated with and give up on. I think most people give up on weight loss programs because they don’t have the will power to keep going. But not her. She had the will power but not when she didn’t see results. Most of the programs and techniques that she tried, worked! And then they didn’t. It’s hard for anyone to keep doing something when you don’t see results of the effort you are putting into success.
That was the way it was with TRM, Zone, Keto and others. She would lose weight and then it would just stop. Even after weeks of being disciplined. The plateaus never gave way.
But it was different for OMAD. Plateaus would usually give at around the 3 week mark but would never last longer than 5 weeks. So the visual success allowed her to keep going. When I saw her success, it inspired me to begin my OMAD program. It was slow at first as I started with the 18/6 method. Over about 6 months I lost 7 pounds….not a lot but 18/6 was really easy for me to do.
It was during this time that my wife was diagnosed with cancer. Right after she reached her goal, she was given a 50/50 chance of survival. I had just started the full OMAD program. We fought the losing battle against the deadliest disease known to man while I continued to lose weight with OMAD that she had inspired me to begin.
In the end, we both hit our goals and she achieved the success she was after. She usually always achieved her goals in one way or another. So this is our experience with OMAD.
As of this writing, I’m still at my goal weight of 170 lbs and maintaining easily. She never got to see me get to my goal, but I know after later reading her diary that she was proud of how well I was doing.
