One Meal A Day And Electrolyte Balance is a video covering the signs and symptom of electrolyte imbalance while on OMAD.
I have followed one meal a day for a long period of time, utilizing a low carb diet and also intensive exercise. Over time, this has caused me to have severe electrolyte imbalance, causing me to experience about every symptom I mention above.
One meal a day has so many health benefits but electrolyte imbalance is almost inevitable. That is why, beyond taking a multi-vitamin, I formulated my electrolyte balancing energy drink that offers you smart energy with specially patented caffeine and is rich in vitamins and electrolytes, ATP Octane. These nutrients are needed during the OMAD experience.
Electrolyte imbalances in many cases can cause some serious health concerns. Experiencing arrhythmias as a result of low electrolytes is something that is a bit scary, as one might think there is something seriously wrong, but the truth is its a simple electrolyte balance issue.
The most important electrolytes while on OMAD are potassium, sodium, and magnesium. These three electrolytes are the most common electrically charged minerals that we become deficient in while on one meal a day intermittent fasting.
Electrolyte balance is crucial while on one meal a day otherwise you can experience many symptoms that will make you feel absolutely horrible.
Be sure to implement this information and take it seriously because OMAD is a very beneficial and enjoyable experience as long as you know the details on how to navigate it safely and correctly.
The diet we follow on OMAD is the Heal Yourself Diet, for the full guide click here.

In this video we’re talking about one meal a day and electrolyte balance.
Electrolytes are very important and also you are highly likely to become deficient in electrolytes when doing one meal a day. So, what we’ll discuss is the very important electrolytes that pertain to one meal a day and also the signs and symptoms that come along with this electrolyte deficiency.
So, an electrolyte is a charged mineral that regulates water flow inside and out of the cell and it also sparks nerve impulses.
Now when doing one meal a day and you’re fasting for that 20 plus hours, it is a huge way that depletes us of our electrolytes for a couple reasons. First of all, insulin levels stay very low which flus it flushes water from the body which is going to deplete us of electrolytes, the other thing that happens is if you’re following a low carb diet, like I recommend when doing one meal a day, this is also something that will deplete us of electrolytes as we’re flushing more water from our body. And then the other thing that happens on one meal a day if you’re adding heavy exercise, like I am as I’m training for a Spartan Race, then this also depletes us of our electrolytes.
So, let’s go ahead and jump in to the first one here potassium. Now potassium is a very important electrolyte probably one of the most important electrolytes and when you have a deficiency here’s some of the signs that you’ll see. For one fatigue, a lot of muscle spasms and twitches, constipation. Constipation is a big one a lot of people ask me about this, ‘I’m following one meal a day and I find that I’m getting constipated’. There’re a couple reasons for that. For one, many people find themselves not drinking enough water doing one meal a day just as a common response of not eating they find themselves not drinking as well. So, we need to make sure that we’re consuming enough water but also potassium deficiency can drive this constipation issue. Then the next thing is mood and irritability and then breathing difficulties. People who have low potassium levels feel that they just can’t get a full breath, that their normal breathing rhythm is just off and so breathing difficulties and with a severe potassium deficiency this breathing difficulty thing can even become a little bit dangerous.
Next on our list is calcium. Now when we look at the electrolytes that are very important when it comes to one meal a day and following a low-carb / keto diet potassium, magnesium and sodium are the most important but calcium is important as well. So I put it in here and so let’s go ahead and look at the signs and symptoms; for one depression, confusion so it’s really messing with our mind; a lot muscle spasms and then tingling in the hands and feet.
Next is Magnesium. Here, magnesium is a very, very important one and you know one of the things is about this you know whole Omad and electrolyte balance experience is that when I first started doing this there was nobody that was really putting a definitive guide out as to how to do this. So, you know it was my understanding that just by taking a multivitamin that had trace minerals in it and you know drinking a you know some sort of energy drink or sports drink that had electrolytes in it was enough. But in fact it’s not because if you’re combining Omad and you’re combining that keto type of diet and you’re combining heavy exercise, you need enormous amounts of electrolytes and so magnesium and along with many of these other ones the signs and symptoms that come from, I’ve experienced nearly all of them. When we look at magnesium twitching and cramps. Okay, twitching first of all it typically happens a lot of the very small muscles so you’ll feel in the lip you’ll feel it under the eye so twitching and cramps, fatigue, increased blood pressure, irritability and also arrhythmia. So that’s where you’re feeling those like heart palpitations and once again you know this is just an electrolyte balance but some of these different symptoms that come out of it seem a little bit scary especially if you experience them and you’re not sure what’s happening.
Last on our list is sodium. If you’re an athlete or you’re exercising or you’re sweating a lot from maybe running, then you want to make sure that you’re definitely getting those sodium levels back up. What the signs and symptoms of decreased sodium is as headaches, nausea, cramps, weakness and confusion.
When you look at these different electrolytes taking a good multivitamin with trace minerals is very important but the other thing that is important as well is adding in a drink or a powder or something along those lines that brings those electrolytes up. For me what I’ve done is I’ve formulated a sports drink that has high levels of potassium, magnesium and sodium in it. So that with exercise, with Omad, with keto, we can work on bringing those levels of electrolytes up and feel so much better. Now, if you want to know what to eat on one meal a day be sure to check out a video I did on it because I cover it in more depth as to what the Omad food pyramid should look like.
Now other ways to bring these electrolyte levels up besides using multi minerals and also ATP octane sports drink to bring the levels up we can look at potassium and magnesium. We can increase our intake of leafy greens. Okay that’s very important and a lot of people aren’t consuming enough of them. And then when it comes to the sodium, we can use Himalayan pink sea salt in our water and mix that up and drink it and that’s going to help bring those sodium levels up especially if you’re someone who’s sweating a lot and doing some hard exercise.
