Is it healthy to be hungry (and eat) only once a day

I don't know. I know I'm seriously dragging if I don't have at least breakfast. I can do without everything else, but I can't get started in the morning without something for breakfast.

Actually you are better off eating 5 or 6 very small meals over the course of the day. If you eat only once a day then your body goes into starvation mode and any extra calorie get packed on a fat.

Im back on the 1 meal a day habit.

I need to go back to eating normal again.

It probably depends on your metabolism.

I only eat once a day, done that for the past 14 years or so. Coffee in the AM, Diet Dew throughout the day, and a good supper. Hasn't caused me any health issues or weight gain. I'm 6' and 180lbs. YMMV but it works for me.

Do you serve habits with red or white wine?

You knew somebody was gonna do it, didn't you?

I generally eat 4 small meals a day.

More if I think I might have a tough work day.

I only eat one meal a day.
I've been doing that for almost thirty years now (I'm 51 now).

I understand that it is not the healthiest way to eat - but my doc proclaims me as one of the healthiest patients she has (based on blood returns)....

I only eat dinner (ie. for me a meal taken between 6-8pm), a full blown healthy meal with properly proportioned food groups. I NEVER eat lunch, and the only time I eat breakfast is on occasional weekends.

I feel fine, have plenty of energy (I jog 3 miles a day during my lunch hour), and I sleep well.

But this is just me - it may not work for you....

I used to eat 4-5 times a day


But as of late i have been a little stressed out and only get hungry/eat once a day around 6-7 o'clock

I am 5-11 and around 200lbs not fat but carrying extra few lbs.

I feel sorta sick to my stomach untill I get hungry so I go see a doc?
