Default Meal frequency low carb vs higher carb.

Does lowering carb intake make it easier to eat for example only one meal a day or is this another keto myth that has not been proven?

What does easier mean for you? That you can fit all calories in your stomach? That you can manage the macro's easier?

Easier in terms of higher satiety.

They say carbs trigger hunger.


You're not one of those quirky people who plans on eating once a day for some silly justification, are you?

As far as satiety goes: fat has a more long term satiety and carbs more short term. Also, food with fibres and complex carbs are better than simple carbs.

Therefore, it would probably be best to add moderate fat to a carb meal or vice versa.

No, but I am thinking that it would be easier to diet without hunger.

I've definitely noticed carbs do trigger more huger on a diet, specifically now that I'm trying a strict PSMF diet - With twice the deficit of the flexible approach, I still have less hunger. Wondering if there's any evidence for the carb theory though.

The amount of variance in response when it comes to anything related to satiety means that your question has no real answer.

It may help, it may not. Try it and see.

What's wrong with someone doing one meal a day?
