I have a small question regarding a monk's weight.
Since I'm observing 7 precepts, I've lost 7kg in less than a month, from 69kg to 62kg.
From my in-body experience, I feel a bit lighter and with less tension inside my body. Since I've never felt this, I was wondering if this is what usually happens and how much a monk of my height (1,84m) usually weights with one meal a day.
Metta to all!
I remember loosing about the same.
Monks have less rushed lives and time to adjust to eating less often. Also in Thailand it's not as cold as Europe or North America, so you don't need to eat to keep warm.
I noticed monks in the UK have cheese or chocolate in the evening as a medicine to be able to stay warm at night. They need those calories!
Some Wat have one meal rules, but most here (Thailand) are two meals a day.
In Thailand they can also have soya milk in the evening.
Good luck. With Metta.
