Rousey on one meal per day diet

One Meal A Day? This is Crazy!

I thought it was crazy at first. Especially since breakfast was, and still is, my favorite meal. I like having a big breakfast, a medium (sized) lunch, a tiny dinner and I would usually go to bed hungry. It took a while to get used to but I don’t really get hungry during the day anymore. I sleep a lot better than I used to and I have a lot more time because I’m not planning meals all day long.

Hunger pains?

There weren’t really hunger pains when I switched to the diet. You’re just used to eating, you’re sitting around and you’re bored … sometimes you just want to eat to keep yourself occupied. But as long as I’m busy – and I’m busy a lot these days so I’m run ragged all day long – I just pretty much need coffee and I’m cool

He (her nutritionist) wanted to take coffee out of my diet at first; we had to have a little bit of a discussion. I was like, ‘I don’t care what I have to do, but I NEED COFFEE! So that’s why we grind up a bunch of wheatgrass, parsley, cilantro and sprouts every morning – a green shot – and I take that every morning to try and combat my addiction to coffee

Philosophy underlying her diet

A guy named Chad Waterbury handles my nutrition. I got it all from him. The philosophy is, when you’re digesting food then your body wants to rest. If you’re hungry then your body wants to go and get food. So you have more energy when you’re not digesting food. So I can get more out of training on an empty stomach than I would on a full stomach.

^^and lol @ my skin quality being a topic here. :)To be honest I did worry aboutj ust that. With lovehandles etc for a couple of years I feared it would look like crap if I got skinny again - being 45 and all.I was pleasantly surprised that it didn't.(Btw, Helwig get your butt over to the pitbull vs chimp thread. Your input is needed!)

This sounds like I was missing a couple of sentences.I was trying to say that I'm not sure about huge guys, but people with just a few extra pounds don't have to worry about loose skin. CDarwin was already in very good shape and losing that ~15lbs of fat didn't have any effect on his skin. Anyone can look somewhat like that, they just need to get super lean.

I find it so attractive when woman diet and focus on their physical appearance obsessively, as long as they don't turn full anorexic. It's even more attractive when you see the pregnant woman doing to exercise classes at the local Y that are specific for pregnant woman instead of using it as an excuse/enable to get fat and lazy, which usually rolls over into post birth and they never recover.

 the approach he speaks about is Leangains but not everyone does well on it. For every fatty that has a success story for it, I see 10 horrible trainwrecks. Good for CDarwin, good poster. Martin from LG even states that LG is best for all ready fit individuals who want to further shed some bodyfat.
