1 meal a day

Postby vpopov81 » Mon Feb 01, 2010 4:49 am

Does anyone here take only 1 meal a day? Can you tell me your experiences with this? How many calories do you pack in that meal?? Is it harmful to eat once a day? I know theravada monks in my area who eat 2 meals a day but never after noon. And the meals are big too. I am curious as to talk to someone who takes little food and his her experience with that.

I undertook the one-sessioners practice for a month. Maybe you are interested:
