What is the OMAD Diet? OMAD stands for “one meal a day,” which is the gist of the diet. The latter is a 23-day eating plan that allows you to eat all you want but in one meal a day. Indeed, you are not limited to eating only low-carb, low-fat, and low-calorie foods. In fact, you are free to eat indulgent foods, such as a pizza, cookies, French fries, etc. The OMAD diet reduces the amount of calories you consume without restricting you in the choice of products.
