Sticky Thread Sticky: DON'T LOOK PAST the BASICS

From what I've been reading in this forum for the past several years---and it's getting worse, not better---most posters here are, for some reason, missing the basics of fat loss, and instead, are looking for some magic bullet, or worse, putting their faith in some TV or youtube guru, or some...

Does eating one meal a day have to correlate with “eating disorder” ?

In order to keep my calories in check, most days I eat at lunch time a nice sized meal and I don’t eat outside of about a one hour window. Someone I know is convinced I have an eating disorder.. they are concerned about my eating. My intake is 1600ish cals but I’m sedentary most days at work

So I know this is probably a monumentally stupid question, but I have to plead ignorance. I have always been under the general impression that women and men have vast biological, metabolic, hormonal, and nutritional differences.
