TMAD Weight Loss Plan



Do you find yourself struggling sometimes with your weight loss plan? Perhaps it is so demanding it requires you to eat an unbearably minimum amount of food. Well, you do not have to follow through on a weight loss plan so grudgingly. Let me introduce you to something more flexible: TMAD weight loss plan!


You may have caught the general belief (or should I say, misbelief?) that weight loss plans are always too difficult to keep up with. While this may be true for some plans, it cannot be said to be true for some others.


Not all diet plans require you to be too hard on yourself. Some plans are quite flexible for the average person, so flexible to enable you lose weight gradually, over time, with no exact pressures. Granted, individual concessions must be made because you certainly must let go of some harmful habits if you are to see results. But that does not mean there has to be a monumental shift in your lifestyle, especially as it has to do with eating.


What is a TMAD weight loss plan tho?


The TMAD Weight Loss Plan


TMAD is an acronym for Two Meals a Day. It is a weight loss plan that involves having only two meals in a day, as opposed to what is commonly regarded as a “three square meal.” Basically, it omits either a breakfast, lunch, or dinner — either of the three — from a person’s daily diet, effectively breaking the “eating chain” to ensure that less calorie is taken in and more burnt.


Some dietitians advise that if a TMAD weight loss plan is to be adopted, the meal to be skipped should be dinner. This is because breakfast and lunch are meals very essential to the wellbeing and general functionality of a person since they are meals had during the day when the body is most active and thus requires all the energy it can get. However, some people prefer to skip lunch, then eat breakfast and dinner so that their sleep will not be interrupted by hunger. Tell your Dietitian your lifestyle and how you prefer your diet plan. For TMAD, diet schedule could be any of these:

How Effective is the TMAD Plan?

Well, if and when it is rightly adhered to, favourable results will follow. However, the progress will not be a quick, easily noticed one. Do not have an unrealistic expectation of yourself in a short while. When using a TMAD plan you will most likely experience a gradual weight loss.

Remember, experts say that you should have an intake of less than about 1700 calories in order to achieve weight loss. With TMAD and with the right foods consumed, you expectedly will have an intake of less than 900 calories per meal.


It is advisable to order a diet plan in this regard. Note that a diet plan is not the same as a weight loss plan.


Are There Any “Buts” to The Narrative?


Yes. There are. Or put more realistically, there could be.


There could be a downside to the TMAD plan.


It is important to note that things could go awry if one makes the wrong diet choices in the course of sticking to a TMAD weight loss plan. Intake of refined carbohydrates can induce hunger which can result in excessive food consumption by the time the next meal is had. That is to say, there could be the tendency to eat more, especially when a person’s TMAD daily diet consists of refined foods.


Refined foods generally have a high glycaemic index, which ensures that they are rapidly digested. This rapid digestion in turn results in a person having a relentless palate that is easily misinterpreted to be a hunger signal. Overeating becomes the end product of this. And overeating, of course, defeats the aim of the plan, of any weight loss plan, in fact.


A Few Tips For Maximum Results on TMAD?

Stay hydrated. Drink more water, especially in the period when a meal is skipped.


Look out for foods with low glycaemic index. That is, look out for foods that do not digest rapidly and are likely to keep you fuller for a longer period of time. Eat more of that.


Avoid refined foods.


TMAD is a fine weight loss plan. As long as it is used rightly, it will yield results, even though these results are likely to surface over an accumulated period of time. So, do not get disappointed that your body mass did not shrink by a pound after you skipped one dinner. Give it time.
