Meet Dave Schratz, who earns money on the web by sitting in front of his 80K+ followers eating his first and only meal a day. Every night he tries to vary his menu. Some days we can see him shoveling cheeseburger sliders into his mouth. Other days that can be 12 bacon-egg-cheese sandwiches and a pile of fries, or it may be a bulging-at-the-seams fajita plate.
The 32-year-old blogger claims he eats one time per day and this meal consists of thousands of calories.
Every post he adds the #IIFYM hashtag and lists the nutritional content of each meal. In the way like this: ” Last Nights Bacon Egg and Cheese
– Calories – 3,721
– Protein: 210
– Carbs: 615
– Fat: 84
– Fiber: 119
He claims that every portion contains about 3,700 calories, remaining him lean. For us to be confident in his words, Dave proudly displays his muscular body in weightlifting videos on Instagram.

Chicken Parm Platter. . Keeping it a buck, I honestly only knew I wanted Chicken Tenders, and was unsure about fries or pasta. . I made both. . When in doubt, make both. 💯 . Yes, i put condiments on my fries/tenders. I dont trust people who dont dip their ketchup. That on top drizzle madness is not the culture. . Plastic Cheese for pasta sold seperately. .

Dave says: “It’s almost like I’m having a cheat meal every night, but I’m not,” he says. “If I burn 4,000 calories and I eat 3,200, then I’m going to stay lean.”
It’s also worth mentioning that Dave sometimes has 2-hour daily workouts which are also a part of his Herculean physique.
“People don’t see the vegetables that I eat, but I usually eat pounds of vegetables with every meal. And people don’t notice because they’re covered in cheese,” he says in an interview for Men’s Health.
And that’s true, his diet isn’t unhealthy, as he doesn’t drink liters of sugary drinks. What is more, Dave looks after his macro nutrition, which shares with his followers in each post.

He has chosen this way of eating because it’s very convenient for him. “I’m usually a very busy person. It’s really the same thing as eating consistently throughout the day.”
“I watch Man vs. Food because I like to watch people eat giant meals, because I’m like, ‘How the heck can you eat so much food?’ I do think there’s something behind that,” he says. “But to think that people actually care about what I’m doing — it’s very humbling.”
To sum up, when choosing the way to follow you have to remember the next thing – the best way for you is to keep your minds tight and follow your heart. If you want to eat once per day – just do it, if want to eat seven meals per day, try this option as well.
