Extreme Fasting: How Does 'One Meal a Day' Affect Your Body?

Over the years, celebrities have helped to spread the word about a variety of bizarre eating trends. The "one meal a day" diet,

sometimes known as the "OMAD" diet, is one of the newest trends among celebrities.

Chris Martin of Coldplay and Bruce Springsteen are also OMAD supporters.

Many OMAD supporters assert that it aids in their improved weight management and fitness.

...In essence, OMAD is an extreme variation on previous

...fasting regimens including time-restricted eating and intermittent fasting.

People who practice OMAD consume all of their daily caloric needs in a single,

substantial meal as opposed to only fasting on certain days or eating only during certain hours.
