The conclusion we eat fewer calories with two meals/day comes from his own data analysis, explained here: https://optimisingnutrition.com/how...-you-eat-a-day/
Interesting presentation. Im not entirely convinced that everyone fits in to these catagories. And he mentions the data sources from people self reporting which is very prone to errors, especially the foods eaten. Pethaps Im asumming too much here on the source of the data.
The data looks reasonable.
Perhaps my body just doesnt fit this data.
Which leads me to, how many others dont fit.
Well worth reading though.
Perhaps one meal a day doesn’t work so well because you are SOOOO hungry by the time you get to eat that you keep on eating and eating and eating; more than you would if you weren’t as hungry when you started eating. And if you are at home with unlimited access to the fridge and cupboard from dinner time until you go to bed, you can still get a lot of food in! "
Why are the subjects soooooo hungry? I remember my 37 day omad trial. Initally, yes, ate a lot in one meal. Stuffed. Had to ignore food calling in the evening. As pushed forward, the meals
became smaller and the desire for evening food decreased. Portion at meal time became smaller as I just couldnt finish meal. This was omad M-F, 2mad on weekends. Weight dropped FAST.
But then I was eating LCHF, some meals wualified as keto. The more keto the less hungries in evening.
Years ago in college I dropped 20 in a semester. Ate SAD 3 MEALS a day. Last meal finushed by 4. Studying was difficult as I was starving all evening, running to bubbler constantly, trying to stop the hungries.
Bet keto has a different result than SAD for optimal number of meals a day.
Good to know both feeding options work well together. His top 2 options. Omad and 2mad.
