If I eat in the morning only, is this okay?!

So to continue to find the solution of my plateau, I have started using some tips that others gave about eating/IF.

I have started eating almost all (if not all) my food at about 6 AM. This includes a lot (and when i say a lot I mean like A LOT) in the mornings for the past few days....usually 2/3 eggs with a little goat cheese and a tomato, a good serving of bacon or sausage, and a large glass of iced espresso with coconut cream/milk or heavy cream. I am full all day, feel great, and have energy. Depending on how much breakfast I eat ill eat a piece of meat in the evenings...only if Im hungry.

I already feel better and my binge eating after IF (which is not intentional) is not occurring anymore and its only been like 3 days, and was wondering if eating in this manner is a good sign or a mental thing? Is there any negatives to calorie loading in the morning?

ill eat a piece of bison or steak at night w some olive oil too...this is usually 12/14 hours (so like 8/9 PM). what are good carbs to add in that will keep me under 50 gs a day?

When I was eating most of my food for breakfast, i was taking 500ml yougurt, 4 eggs, 2 hot dogs, 2 tsp coconut oil, 20g mixed nuts, and bunch of supplements and probably something I forgot.

Thats starvation and malnutrition 2 me. Say welcome to chronic disease soon unless you supplement lots of stuff.

that doesn't look like a lot at all. plus bacon shouldn't be your only form of meat for the day. eggs are good. but try to stick to whole lean meats.

You might run that through fitday.com. That looks like my normal breakfast calorie wise.

You call that A LOT? Maybe I'm eating too much all the time.

There are a lot of people here that will say the number of times you eat is way less important than eating enough, getting the proper amount of calories and nutrients and feeling satisfied physically and emotionally. Calories are calories and "front loading" so to speak should not be a problem.

I have no empirical research to link for you, but I can tell you that personally, I've found that once a day eating really works for me (I have my meal in the evening rather than the morning). I've been doing it for a few months now, and have felt a lot better for it--and it's very convenient not having to worry about food at work! :)

I say if you're listening to your body and it's telling you that it's full, functioning and happy, there shouldn't be a downside to reducing the number of meals you eat per day.
