OMAD Fasting Health Benefits And Precautions
You’ve likely heard of intermittent fasting, but there’s a new kid in town that is all the rage, called OMAD. It stands for ‘one meal a day.’ In this post, I’ll share about OMAD health benefits and precautions that are important to be aware of if you decide to try this fasting schedule.

You may be asking yourself how this is possible…especially in such a short time. And that is what I’m going to share in this post.
What Is OMAD Fasting?
OMAD is a form of intermittent fasting. You may have heard it called the One Meal A Day diet. Simply put, you eat one meal a day and fast for the other hours.
During the fasting window, you can have non-caloric beverages. Water is best, but unsweetened tea and coffee are okay too.
You may be familiar with other intermittent fasting schedules like the 16:8, the 18:6 or the 20:4. These ratios show you the hours you spend fasting in relation to the hours you spend eating (your eating window) based on a 24-hour day.
For example, a 16:8 fast means that you fast for 16 hours and eat all of your meals for the day within the 8-hour time frame.
For OMAD the ratio is typically 23:1 (fasting for 23 hours and feasting for 1). But So now that we’ve covered fun facts about intermittent fasting schedules, let’s jump into some of the impressive benefits of OMAD.
