Walmart Headquarters Info
Went to wallmart about a week ago in romeoville,illinois and couldnt believe the service!! By law, unsolicited merchandise is yours to keep. I hope all is well for you. So much so that I can hear it sizzling when I lift the lid to add batter and water runs out when I go to store it. How many officers do you see protesting the killing of police officers, or protesting period! Limit your salt intake, because you will retain water on a high salt diet.
What to watch out for
On June 7th Walmart could not tell me where the play set was and that it had not been delivered to the local store.
I contacted Walmart on line and was told the shipment got damaged and they refunded the charges. I was told if I still wanted the item I would have to place the order again. I asked for and was given free home delivery since I had issues with the first set being damaged.
Today, June 14th, I find out that the second set has been damaged and Walmart has none in stock anymore and not even on their website. I was credited back the amount once again. If anyone wants to contact me from Walmart, have at it.
I was on the phone ALL day trying to get the shipping charges dropped for an extremely over priced item. I say we start a social media war against Walmart or boycott them like Target. Maybe even a law suit if we can gather enough people together. It is the principle, I lost all respect for Walmart, their customer service, and executive management team. I hope someone gets back to me to, they are ridiculous. We had it delivered site to store. I had to call the store to hold it for an additional 2 weeks because we hired a company to pick it up and put it together for us.
I spoke to the store on three separate occasions about this play set they were holding and they had to place notices directly onto. The 29th of July comes and we meet our contractors at the store and the package is damaged.
It is open and the slide is missing. During ALL of my conversations, no one mentioned there was an issue with the package or it was damaged, and I did not think to ask. We had to order a new one immediately and have it shipped immediately to be ready for his birthday party which is the day after his birthday. We ordered the Discovery Atlantis as a comparable alternative, as our original one was not in stock. The assistant manager of our local store contacted the corporate office with us to make sure everything went through smoothly.
She gave the address of the store, explained we were closest to that store an asked to have it expedited. He also expressed he did not want it delivered to our home because we live on a main road and did not want that type of package just dropped on our front step when no one is home. The corporate office said they would expedite it to he store at their expense. We thought we were set. That evening I opened the confirmation email which is shipping the play set to a store 30 minutes away from us!!!!!
Again, I was on the phone with the corporate office and told them not to cancel it and reorder because anything else could go wrong. The play set was supposed to be here by the end of the day on Aug 4. Now that I see they cannot be trusted, I called Walmart on august 3 to confirm all is set and we are good to go.
They tell me it will not get here until the 7th! I am also told it was never expedited by corporate as that is not a service available for site to store. I expressed to Walmart that my family does our food shopping and spends a lot of money throughout the holiday season at their stores and that will not happen again.
They also said we could not get a refund on the order until it arrived! Needless to say, I PRAY that it is in tact when it arrives this week and I have already contacted my local news station! Your information for the address and Execs is incorrect. Might want to stay better informed if you are wanting to provide information to the public. The worst POS customer service. Think about it do they really care? They can afford to lose you as a customer. They give you this blog which one one ever looks at, so that you can voice your opinion.
Have fun leaving a comment. I worked for Walmart and my coworker use to come in and clock in and go home, no one ever asked for her or knew she was gone!
How was this possible? I worked there 2 wks and left!! I would like to ask about the US food factory products, into the walmart sales need to have what the most basic conditions and requirements?
Please see the letter quick reply to my Email. Sam Walton would be so upset if he saw how you are treating a family of really good customers and do not care at all. Basically the message Walmart is delivering to us is — if we ignore you, you will go away! We are loyal customers of Sams and Walmart and do not deserve to be treated like this at all. Please have someone email me or call me this week from the corporate office and not customer service care as they do not care!
I have been the there and i have been arrested in billings mt. And no one want to listen to it. I have a complaint about store in Pampa TX. I have noticed on several occasions that the assistant managers take advantage of the support managers and then when the support managers try to take up for themselves or tell the assistance that they have other projects that need to be done the assistants get mad and try to throw the support managers under the bus for not getting stuff done but the assistant managers refuse to help them.
Their store manager Todd refuses to do anything about this many people have made complaints many people have called the corporate office and still nothing is being done. I hope something is done about this store thank you for your time.
I purchased Allegra from the Pharmacy on April1, How did this expired box get on the shelf? I had to show ID for expired medicine?! I find that VERY hard to believe. He said someone from Marketing would call also. He apologized and quickly hung up. I look forward to speaking with someone soon in the Executive offices. I trusted Wal-Mart to sell up to date merchandise, but I received expired meds.
My home Walmart N. Lancaster, Ohio has this exact plate in Red, so I bought it for my son to try, he refused to eat. I am not asking for a hand out, I do not expect anything for free.. Just please, please let me know how I can purchase Many of these plates.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated. You may have to pay a little more but this may be another avenue for you to try. Better to have two oars in the water than just one!

All they care about is production and not about the employees well being. I heard just last week they had multiplw injuries OSHA recordables…. Hello I dont normally complain about walmart but in this case i feel the time something is said. In the area there are 2 other walmarts in the area and i have been running an experiment for 12 yrs.
I go the walmart near Old hickory blvd and get 3 salads i am in and out in 3 minutes i have even had cashiers ask me if i am ready to check out. You go to the Nolensville Rd location and get the same salads and be out in 15 or 20 minutes if that.
They recently installed self check lines in this store at both ends and the lines are longer. They dont even have enough trained cashiers. I was told a year ago it would make things better and i havent seen any improvement and i recently learned this walmart closes at midnight.
I was excited to receive my camera but as my excitement turned to sheer disappointment when I used it. I have been a photographer for many years and never had any deformed spots show up on my photographs.
We brought the camera back to the store only to find that because it was bought before Christmas that the 14 days of return ended. We then called Walmart looking to buy another camera and instead of honoring our request of what we wanted, they tried to sell us an older model that was worse quality. We are disappointed in this as we feel that my Christmas was a Christmas gone bad. Thank goodness for Best Buy because we were able to purchase another camera but by far will never use Walmart again.
How do you people sleep at night!! What are you a child, the fact that you can not put together 2 sentences with out dropping the F bomb tells us a lot about you,,,,,there are dates on each item in the store, just read the expiration date, problem solved! I will not be returning here ever again after the way I was treated by the store security. As I was leaving, a security man at the door asked to see my receipt for water I purchased, which is no problem.
Other customers were waiting to leave, listening to this jerk make me feel like a criminal. He finally found the water on the receipt, telling me to have a good day. I left so embarrassed and extremely irritated the way he made me feel like a criminal. Walmart can kiss my ass, you lost a long time customer.
You can not treat every person who shops here like a criminal. Hi im Brandan Moore I live in scottsburg indiana and shop at scottsburg indiana since its in the city and I have been sending receiving transfers for a couple months off and on and when a custermer rep assists me by the name of sara shes always very polite and nice never ever rude or disrespectfull like i got alot shes always very polite with positive attitude and smiles i would like you to congradulate her she works in custumer service in scottsburg indiana.
Recently I had a very bad situation happen when me and my family was having issues. One of the assistants that works a the same store I work at was trying to get with my husband and pursue a relationship. Nasty little comments toward me and when I go to the store manager for help he decides to bring her to the shift I work on. Went to wallmart about a week ago in romeoville,illinois and couldnt believe the service!! Im really surprized they even sell stuff.
How can a company even stay in buisness when no one will assist you when your trying to make a purchace. Then you contact the corporate office and they never get back with you either!! I know alot of people that dont shop there for that very reason and i guess ill quit going there myself.
I am Bipanveer Kaur Gill. I have not got the T4 for the year as all other employees have got that. I was working in Thompson,MB Store. I am having a terrible experience shopping at walmart. As I contact the seller through walmart email system the seller answered and admitted twice that just opened the box to put a camera cord inside to fulfill US requeriments Why not put inside the shipping box. The seller was rude in his email format telling me to go and buy one camera at a higher price plus taxes.
I also think this is not a good business to walmart. And I still need to pay for shipping? Very, very poor experience at the new Walmart in Bluffton, SC early yesterday evening. It was barely 6: The excuse given by the store manager at the time — no food. Well, the picture I snapped of the dark Deli department tells a different story — there was plenty of food to be ordered from the Deli.. As for the rest of the grocery side of the store — totally blown with no employees to fill the shelves or cases — from produce, to dry goods, to meat and dairy, the chip and soda aisles — blown…completely.
Walmart — you need to get your store management team inline with customer expectations at this new store. I audibly recorded all of the conversations so I have this on tape as evidence.
Get a step ahead in the e-commerce market. I am recommending a discount to US active, reserve and retired military veterans for whom on a daily basis sacrifice and protect our nation to enjoy the freedoms we have. Walmart should be ashamed not giving military discounts for those that have served our country Lowes and Home Depot and countless other retailers offer military discounts. That would be wonderful. Your request unfortunately will fall onto deaf ears.
As a veterans group we have tried to get help from them many times. So far we received 6 rolls of torn toilet paper. I would like to take the opportunity to thank Walmart in congratulating My Mom.
My Mom works for Walmart in Houston — She has always been an entrepreneur in doing some sort of noble cause, to business along with fulfilling the duties of family.
She has always made us and the entire family feel proud of work. When is came to USA , she could not understand the English ascent as well as difficulty in speaking. Today after 6 years in USA and 3 years in Walmart — she is awarded number 1 in opening credit card sales.
Day on Day she has been opening around 7 to 8 credit cards for Walmart each day. Also she has been 36 shifts without even a single absent.
This indeed shows the respect and pride she takes in working at Walmart. I certainly think the company should take a moment to appreciate her, for many more to be motivated and work in achieving the corporate goals of Walmart. Thakkar employee of Houston — Walmart. The exposure , the chance of growth and opportunities which Walmart gives the employee in growth. I wanted to bring this up to the corporate to highlight the small achievement an individual makes and brings to the local center, which might get unnoticed in the light of corporate goals.
I did not sign up for a registry and was confused. Since I am unable to have children at this time, I am disappointed to see Walmart sends packages like this out to unexpecting women. Walmart may want to learn how to market to the correct demographic before sending items like this out. I asked about it and they did a price check..
Why in any case did they say they can change the price of a single Dr. Pepper but no more. So this is sadly my farewell to WalMart. I guess this means HEB will have to work. Its too bad cause I go to WalMart for Everything! But I would rather the inconvenience of driving out of my way and learning a whole other store than have to deal with a problem with Every visit to WalMart. To accuse and bully a little boy. I will be contacting headquarters and I want this to be resolved immediatly.
Making my son cry and calling him and theif is sicking and sad. Get off your ass and do your job correctly. My name is Roberto Collazo. I am a Cuban parolee pursuing adjustment of status. I do not have an employment authorization yet. I have had my fingerprints taken for that purpose already. I am waiting to receive my work permit by mail soon. Although I am not currently looking for a job, I have become very interested in the possibility to have a career working for Walmart.
I would like to find out as much as I can about the opportunities you offer. Would it be possible to ask you a few questions and get your advice on how best to prepare to enter the hospitality field? I deeply appreciate the time and effort you put into my request. Went and bought Walmart family Mobile SIM kit, took it out after a hour of not being able to get service. I have contacted the FTC and hatis law, beyond that I have no idea how to protect my self maybe contact media?
Your Store manager told us to call walmart…we did for an hour and a half with no resolution…. I am so upset and angry with your store.. NO one will help…. Hi I really would like this to go to Greg Foran But it seems we little people are not good enough to talk with him!!
I do not believe that the head of a company should turn his back to us!!! I got home and open it pulled it out washed the water container filled it and went to get the coffee pot out of the box and it was not there.
We my husband and me and noticed that the box looked like it had been open before. I put it back in the box I did not dry it off the water container. But i was so mad. We live 1hr an 30 min. The manager Lee Mcneil made me look like a lire. Shipping Pass… Not happy about you revoking my Shipping Pass!!!! Out of the 10 or so handicap carts they have, at least 6 are broken on a constant basis. I bought your Shipping Pass to avoid having to make a minimum purchase. I have Amazon Prime too.
I think you are shooting yourself in the foot with this. Why not at least offer the option to keep Shipping Pass. When you reconsider and realize you will be losing customers instead of gaining them, let me know. I hope somebody in your corporate arena reads all these social media posts. Went and found the manager and she had to look the sale up on her phone. Her and the salesman went in the back to see if they had the TV. When they returned there was a TV on the cart.
Told her I would like to purchase it and I will be back in 30 minutes to pick it up. At the time I had no way of carrying a 60 in TV. The manager told me they could not honor that. Could not go home and pick up my truck to transport the TV home.
I do not think I will ever step foot in a Walmart again. We have other stores here that will get my business. I have tried since Monday to contact Customer Service with no luck.
I have noticed Walmart employees are getting more and more disrespectful to their customers. I want to share my experience on social media but I am willing to give management a chance first. What can I do? And then nothing happens yet again, so I get to call again? This also happened to my son, but with a laptop. Impossible to get a hold of anyone in customer service or corporate offices.
Sad way to treat customers. Sorry to bother you; but we have a problem that concerns my granddaughter. To day she was fired for not coming to work on Thursday She did turn in a statement from her doctor saying not to go to work due to strep.
Mike was called and he also told her not to come in. Thursday was her 5th day, since she has worked their. She has provided a doctors statement a total of 3 times, The first 2 were due to surgery problems. I was also told by management that they did not have to honor any statement from a doctor.
She, to me was fired falsely, and wrongful termination could be pending. I welcome your input. Yeah i think its messed up how they give dr notes to the discretion of the manager. I had a manager that didnt like me and i had a dr note for strep…. They have a policy that is useless. I have seen so much mistreatment of employees and favoritism that is unbelievable.
Funny thing is I actually should have had 1 more covered day to use. You see in May while at work I got a call that my Dad was having hospice to start coming.. At that point I had 3 or 3.
As I would see them do for all their favorites. In the coming months i racked up several occurrences, i know i should have taken a loa but then who would pay my bills? And I called in for bereavement for the following 2 days and used my 3rd for hia internment a week later. So they had me using my sick time that I got so little of anyhow and ended up costing my job of 9 years. Only to replace me with a transferred new hire that came with 13 occurrences?
When someone higher up caught wind of that…. So many other things go on too. No breaks, mgmt talking to hourlys about other hourlys.. Was told to file a lawsuit and go to the laborboard.. I ordered a couch for walmart.
When they were set to deliver I told them I would open the door. I was then told that they can only leave it in the lobby of my apartment complex. I live on the 5th floor alone how am I suppose to get a couch up there? I cancelled my order and had them take it back. I talked to Walmart and they gave me a Help link on their website and go it says it all right here that they do not bring it up to the apartment. I was suppose to search their website for answers I did not even have questions about?
I didnt have questions placing an order online is not one of the hardest things to do and well the shipping had 1 option that never said anything about not bringing it to my apartment.
Was I wrong to assume it would be brought to me and that I did not know I had to search the entire help section to find and answer to a question I did not even know i had to ask? This company is crap they treat their customers like crap and the really do not care. Since that issue i have gone out of my way to avoid going to walmart.
I drive 20 mins to Target instead of 5 to walmart because they are horrible at treating there customers. That was not even the only issue i had with them either. My mom ordered a twin size bed and mattress for my 4 year old for Christmas.
They were sent with 2 different delivery days yet under 1 tracking. The mattress made it to the store on time I picked up the mattress and was waiting for the email saying the frame was there. It never showed up. My mom called they lost the bed frame and because it was under the same tracking as the mattress they could not locate anything because the mattress was already picked up. How the hell do you lose a twin size bed frame????
Yes I have a major complaint and I may have to get legal advise!!!!! I need a reply email with a direct phone to a major boss of walmart corporate!!!!! My ex use to work at one of your walmart locations and she said she forgo5 my phone in walmart and went back in and I coulsnt find her for an hour and a half saying she couldnt find it!!!!!
But yet with in that hour and half all my social media and email passwords was changed!!!! No random person would find my phone then just change passwords then nwver use it again!!!!!
My problem is when I went to sercurtity to ask to veiw tapes with my lawyer friend the guard said there was no tape and her would get back to me!!!!!
But as I said my ex use to work there and the guard is her new boyfriend!!!!! I need this resolved. When I returned to pick up my car- someone had damaged my drivers side I said door handle. I told someone of the problem and three male service workers bullied me and tried to pressure me to just leave. I proceeded to make an insurance claim.
Walmart assured me that it would be handled swiftly. I filed the claim and waited to hear back. So now I have to pay out of my own pocket to fix the damage they made to my car.
They bully people, damage their things and lie. Walmart in RPB Florida is the worst store I have ever encountered, filled with the rudest people I have ever had to deal with. Why would I have been at Walmart in the first place? I am typing this feedback to at least let Walmart corporation aware that in Brazil your staff is doing everything possible to make your reputation look really bad. The short long story is that I use the local e-commerce to buy a Christmas gift to my nephew, the purchase was mad eon Dec 10th and the delivery chosen was express, on Dec 21st i got an update from Walmart local website saying that the package was out for delivery, for my surprise that only arrived on Dec 26th and I had to buy other thing from your competitors, in order to get my nephew his gift.
I had several times contacted your local customers service to understand what was going on and they always gave me the information that the order would arrive in time, but they system could not track where specific the material was at this delivery period.
After not get the material in time, I used an third party wed site to complain about this delay, after it I got a contact from local Walmart her name: I really hope that this feedback can help your corporation to recover the imagine in South America. At last but note the least, my full name is Rafael Moreira Preto, the order delayed has the follow PO Please reply me with some feedback and guide me if i should use other contact address to file this complain.
Hello, I am contacting to inquire regarding the sale of live animals. I recently visited a Walmart store and I passed by the animal section and encountered a surprising sight. I saw 15 betta fish in plastic containers with water filled up halfway and with completely orange water, barely visible.
I had to contact an employee and stacked up the entire sink area with sick bettas on top of each other. I want to report this traumatic encounter I had with this unacceptable treatment towards live fish. I am disappointed in the way Walmart Corporation is treating live animals without the proper research and sanitary care. I would like to request Walmart to please research the necessary water changing conditions for live betta fish without the need to create inhumane living conditions for them as they are living beings who require care.
I went to the store to buy a betta fish and left upset with emotional trauma from the store. I would appreciate it if my concern will address this situation I encountered and improve the water care and living conditions for Betta fish. They get their money, who cares about service?! In November, I contacted the company to let them know I had to keep resetting my password and noticed I was missing some money from the catcher saying I used it, but I did not.
After many emails back and forth, I was informed that someone with a Russian email address had taken over my account which they provided me the email address attached to my account. When I confirmed that that was not my email, they closed my account and told me to contact the savings catcher department to get the balance transferred to the new account.
Calling the number would not let you speak to anyone and would hang up on you. I sent many more emails to the company to get help before Christmas, but was told they would forward my messages. No matter what your situation is. The only way to show outrage is to stop shopping there, but it will take millions of us to stop. I am experiencing the same lack of service here in Canada. My situation was not as bad but lack of response is very bad.
We have contacted Ascent repeatedly and despite promises, we still have not been paid. I called Walmart about price matching. On Walmarts website it says that they price match target. The last time I was in Walmart they honored this price. I understand not matching prices from eBay. I called the Walmart in King of Prussia, the manager was very polite and professional.
This is an issue with how the price matching is written. It is misleading and I am very displeased by this. It says that they match prices with quite a few retailers such as Amazon but only through Amazons direct pricing. I have had good experiences at Walmart before. Because of the false advertisement that is displayed on Walmarts website page I doubt I will ever return to Walmart again to do business.
Yes target has the item in stock. I would rather have gone to the Walmart near me for conscience. Due to this I will suck up the drive and go to Target because I have never once had a problem with them. Again, this is not due to the personal store. This is because of corporates negligence to properly inform customers of their price matching.
You will lose my business and the business of others due to my experience on corporates behalf. If you ever worked at Walmart and got let go consider it a blessing. Why would you want to go back? Hi my name is Samantha Howe. I used to work for Wal-Mart as of Nov 25th I was in a car accident on October 28th and my insurance company needs my pay checks stubs so I can paid for the time I missed from this accident. But the rehohoboth beach Wal-Mart in Delaware, said since my name is no longer in the system that its in possible to get the check stubs.
I was just in the Walmart in North Bend Oregon and was hit in the hip from behind by a woman on one of the electric scooters while standing at the self checkout she was going fast with a dog in her arm while driving with one hand it took management 5 to 10 minutes to get there then they kept saying that they were getting higher management then it took probably took another 10 to 15 minutes for the paper work to get there.
I was hurting bad and just just wanted to get out of there. I purchase a basketball set for my son a 6 year old kid that was expecting to received his surprise on Christmas and now ruin by Walmart online shopping. I order the basketball set and it was suppouse to be deliver on Thursday the 22nd of December and guess I track the delivery and moved for Friday 23 so I checked today I track and move for the Tuesday 27 December wow thank you for ruin my son Christmas I know we me and him will never forge it.
What angry me and disappointed the most if the service and that for money you Walmart lie to people why would you post a date or advertise at the moment of the purchase a date and the just change it no respect of course it is not your family members who is expecting the gift right if it was for a regular I would not care but it was for Christmas my son watch you advertisement of Christmas so now image my son watching ad on tv and having his present to open.
Thank you for ruin my Christmas. I would like to voice my total outrage and my lack of understanding, as to why Walmart has decided to discontinue selling the Black Lives Matter apparel????
It does not convey the meaning of being derogatory towards the FOP or non blacks. It means the Black Lives Matter Too also!! This apparel, is in no way meant to offend the police. You also sell Blue Lives Matter apparel as well…will you be discontinuing that apparel as well? Because some may find it may be offensive as well?
If you discontinue selling one item because it offends one group, then in the same return, you should discontinue selling the other apparel as well. I to believe and concur with the FOP.
For trust to be established between the marginalized community of minorities and the police, we all need to understand each other, not fear each other. Please reconsider your decision regarding removing this apparel from your website.
This is another attempt to silence, dismiss, and to continue systemic racism on a corporate level, by taking away peaceful means of expressing support for a cause. How many police officers do you see block busy streets in their supposed protests? How many officers do you see protesting the killing of police officers, or protesting period!
How many of the Black Lives Matter has turned violent! Your black lives matter are the very ones saying all lives matter is racist! I support all black people who do not support black lives matter, and who does not condone their use of violence and terrorism!
My husband is a retired police officer who got a brain injury after he left the force, he takes seizures and is paralyzed down the one side.
I must first say that Mr Walton would have to be so disappointed in the way his stores have become. I hope good people everywhere does the same. Our police deserves our highest support and respect. Shame on you and I pray you fail miserably.. I recently won a tv at a charity auction. Took the tv home and opened it up and it was broke during shipping from Walmart. They will not help us out in anyway. It is so horrible that they told us that it was too bad so sad. All I want is a TV that I won at a charity event to be replaced.
I have been told twice that they will do nothing. I have the shipping numbers, order numbers and all that. They told me that it was past the return date and that there was nothing that they were going to do. The event was after the return date. My family would love this tv. I am getting tired of getting ripped off and big corps making all the money. I work hard to help others out and end of getting screwed in the end. I ordered Ninetendo DS for Christmas — preorder. My daughter ordered one as a regular order.
All were on sale after Black Friday. Christmas is one week away! My daughter called the company, they offered to cancel the order. I called 10 days later and they said they just arrived at the warehouse, wait for my shipping notice.
That was 3 days ago but I see them for sale on the Walmart site sold by Walmart for double the price! What is up with that? Walmart, what happened to honesty? WalMart is now selling Black Lives Matter merchandise?
BLM is overtly racist against white people, call for and commit violence against police, including murder, have repeatedly attacked white people. They are a domestic terrorist group. I understand that corporate people like to be PC but you are simply on the wrong side on the argument and the wrong side of history.
You can support grievances against minorities without selling merchandise that glorifies a terrorist group that kills and assaults innocent people and police. I shop at WalMart a lot in the past. This will lose you customers. It has recently come to my attention that Wal Mart has chosen to carry an extensive line of Black Lives Matter merchandise.
Is it even possible that you are not aware of what this group stands for and their part in the current assaults and assassinations of Americas Law Enforcement Officers? One only has to google BLM and view the videos to hear the hatred being chanted, if you somehow have managed to remain uneducated regarding their intent. As a result of your decision, I will do my best thru social media and word of mouth to reach out to as many decent, law abiding citizens who support those in uniform as possible.
In the meantime, I will hope that someone in your organization sees fit to reverse this decision and exercise moral character and support all first responders. So today I tried to use a gift card and my debit card, because I need a matching coffee table that I can find nowhere else, and my order was cancelled. I ordered a photo book for both my parents and my in-laws and the photos we used were good quality photos.
When we got the photobook, all the photos were blurry and horrible quality! There is even a weird blue line running through the center of the page on all pages!!! This is incredibly ridiculous and I expect something to be done about it. Today I took my elderly Mom to Walmart in Brantford. As we were checking out the blond chaser took my cloth bags and tossed them to the end of the checkout!
I was made to pack my own groceries and other stuff!!! Not sure if its because my Mom brought her own bags. What happened to the Merry Christmas here? I have been trying to order my groceries via the Walmart grocery delivery website and have not been able to do so. This is not true! I have been ordering groceries from you people for over TWO years. I have called repeatedly your customer support number and the local store here in Broomfield, CO that delivery my groceries to no avail!!
I had to order my groceries from King Soopers and am furious! Please respond to me because I am getting no response from anyone out here! I am posting regarding the region district for the store in Live Oak, FL. I am wondering if corporate has a reason for this, or is the region district manager just trying to secure himself a HUGE bonus in the end? It seems the amount of customers remains the same or more , but quality of service is less, due to lack of staffing.
For having such a huge corporation that makes so much money, they treat their employees very poorly. The sick pay, holidays and vacation are absolute crap.
Nor do they get reasonable sick pay or vacation. This needs to be revised as well. This whole company needs some work. I am astounded that your company would promote a racist terror group known as black lives matter while ignoring true history of the South and denying the sale of the flag of the Confederacy which numerous men and women of both black and white skin colors fought and died for.
Our family of 5 will no longer shop in any of your stores nor will a growing multirude of other Americans. The bottom line is not just the customer, they are our priority yes, but the associate as well, a lot of associates put their hearts and souls into their jobs and are now being expected to accomplish miracles in half the time. On Black Friday I ordered a product on sale from the website.
Here is the problem. This involved OJ Commerce LLC which apparently was selling the product on your site and there were well over 50 people that ordered from on Black Friday and then orders were cancelled the next day. Oh ya, and now my credit card info is in both systems. Formal complaints are in the process of being filed against both companies in my state, and the state of Walmart corporate as well as in the state of OJ Commerce.
I am done doing business with Walmart, especially online as I have ordered items three times and each order was screwed up. Good morning on behalf of the greater new Holy Trinity Missionary Baptist Church I need the leadership Reverend LS Woods we go out into the community and we feed the homeless people we are asking you to donate blankets because here in Los Angeles California it has got very very cold and we would like to get blankets to the homeless people to keep them warm so if you can help us to help keep the homeless people warm we would appreciate it very much thank you and have a blessed day.
I have been calling and leaving messages regarding my issue since November 23, with promises that someone from corporate will call back in 1 — 3 days. It has happened yet. Ordered a training potty for my daughter received it through mail yesturday to open it up and find it was used with urine and hair all in it!! I am still freaking out about the fact that they sent urine through the mail to my daughter… like what am I suppose to do?! The Walmart pharmacy in Cleveland Texas is so unprofessional and it is infuriating!
Every time I call to refil a prescription they are rude and condescending! Good morning, and happy holidays! I am reaching out to your company to see if you are interested in donating items as a tax write off. My attempts are to raise money for our prom In May by doing a silent auction with the most trending brands.
Please let me know if you are interested in helping is out. I am looking forward to hearing from you! Oh and another thing. They are losing more customers like us.. So tired of Walmart lying and all the agents telling you different stories. I will only ever shop Walmart. They owe me money. I will finally find somewhere else to shop. I will go elsewhere!!! I agree with you stacy! I will be going into their stote tomorrow with the police! I emailed corporate almost 2 weeks ago about store Apparently corporate treats their customers about as bad as that store.
Edith, Happy Hanukkah to you. I have seen these items at Bed, Bath, and Beyond. I live right here in Nevada. Not sure bout Florida. Walmart should be ashamed of themselves for taking advantage of the same people who keep them going. Even Hatchables websites are looking into this because it is not what they wanted to see from retailers who are ripping off the consumer. Not only is Walmart corrupt with this practice but also with the labor market.
They would rather hire two or three people to do a full time workers job so that they can avoid paying health benefits etc for American workers. Monopoly is not just a game. Need employee counselor, other than that the store seem to have changed just treat the employees with respect and more customers shall come. I ordered a recliner that was shipped to my local Walmart, and when I got it home and put it together, I noticed that the back left wooden support was broken.
It looks like it may have been caused during the transit from warehouse to store. I am inquiring to find out how to get my product fixed, replaced or a refund. I had to make special pick up plans to retrieve the recliner and taking it apart and returning it to the store has become a problem.
I picked up the product on Saturday November12Th. When we call in a RX they tell us it will be ready the next day. Five 5 times we have gone to pick up the RX and it was not ready. We were never notified of any problems that occurred until we came to the store. Today my wife went to pick up a RX and a lady just beat her to the counter. This message if for Joel Anderson. I am having great difficulty with returning a product purchased from walmart.
The local store manager first tells me wal. So now no response from smart mobile. I called your customer service line again and they walk me thru sending another email. But they advised me they could not handle the situation for me. In your Walmart commercials around the holidays, it seems to be all about spending family time but in this one store in New Jersey it is the complete opposite. Employees are scheduled a 9 hour shift on Thanksgiving with little to no time to spend with their families on the holiday.
And there are dissatisfied employees because there is no extra pay or overtime pay, and the commercials seem misleading of how the employees feel.
Wal mart likes to brag about their great things they do for communities and schools and everyone else …but it is too darn bad your employees are treated as if they have not a brain in their heads. Point in case… schedules come out for Thanksgiving. A person who is scheduled off for that day makes plans when seeing the schedule. Come on you guys you profess to be such great people …why not show the employees same kind of greatness you say you give to everyone else.
Can someone please help me? THIS truck pulled out into traffic without looking and then had the nerve to flip me off. I had to swerve into on coming traffic to avoid an accident. It happened on long Island new york. To Whom it may concerned, I just love Walmart.
They are a great company. How can I get information on their headquarters? I wanted to come see where the headquarters are some day. What kind of things are there to do there? Please contact me back. Walmart super store in deltona, fl I am a handicap person and have a hard time walking the store. For such a big store with minimal carts is outrageous.
This is my 2nd time writing and complaining with never a response to my first complaint. We have a new neighborhood store also in deltona that has more ride on then the super store. I can no longer shop the super store with out a ride on. My sister is handicapped and doesnt make it other peoples problems and responsibilities. Come in your own wheelchair or scooter. Take some personal responsibility for yourself. That is just rude for you to say.
Not everyone can afford s wheelchair. Yes Walmart has the electric carts so there should be some available. Karma will hit you 10 fold. And for you to add your sister is handicapped, Like that made it ok for you to comment in such a horrific manor. She must be so proud! So let me explain to the simple minded folk out there like yourself what C White said in a way for you to understand what the rest of us read. How can shoppers buy from a super Walmart That is a really big store where you will buy so much you need Super Sized Shopping Carts are you following so far???
You know the carts that items are over flowing and you only made it down the 1st aisle of the store. Everywhere you look Ride on Carts! Oh yes Handicapped, and now let me ask you if you would complain about the lack of shopping Carts or would you take your own Steller advice and bring your own shopping Cart and have your sister use you as an example of the true meaning of someone who is handicapped and why you should really not make such uneducated remarks.
Unless you love eating Crow all the time. Our company deal with retail and wholesale voice and data traffic that collected all over the world.
This would help you in cutting the international roaming charges during your foreign trips and would give us a chance to cherish your partnership with us. I was resently in my local walmart in Eufaula Alabama store and a buddy of mine was buying alcohol and they banned us for contributing to a minor and pressed charges on him for it. Later on he went to court on it and the charges were dropped because there was no evidence that he was contributing to a minor.
But we are still banned ive called the local walmart and they told me i needed to contact corporate and see what they said so that is what I am doing. Please just let me know whats going on thanks. I told the manager on staff about her, but also wanted to let Corporate know. We do not give cash back. So a couple days later today I decided to call another Walmart 30 miles away to see if I had been lied to. Another Walmart said the same thing.
You must do your own research and you should consult a medical professional before embarking on a diet. But if you have any doubts at all you should see a doctor. I could have done it quicker but the price for the quick result was more than I was willing to pay.
Oh and about the General. As a former U. They constipate you so badly that you get stomach pains after eating them for two days. During the First Gulf War they apparently had to airlift a couple soldiers to Germany because of critical digestion issues caused by them. Anyways on the one meal a day diet: I used to do that in High School along with running every day and dropped from lbs to about to get in shape for AROTC although I was really skinny runner type, and after a couple months of PT was up to about from putting on muscle.
The way I always saw it, one meal a day is more natural from an evolutionary standpoint. Mankind was made to eat big meals rather than munch all day like the 6 meals a day has you think.
A human being is far more flexible with eating adaptability than most nutritionists or health experts are willing to admit. Hence why so many studies contradict each other in dietary research. I am in my early 40s. I last did this way of eating in my 20s and it worked fabulously for me. Now I am overweight and trying it again. They tend to be normal hearty meals.
Instead of dividing up my calorie intake between a breakfast that I never really wanted in the first place, and a so-so diet lunch and then making do with the few calories I have left to eat a weird meal different to everyone else in the household or at at the restaurant.
Hi Krystal, I think you summed it up very nicely. Thanks so much for leaving such a great comment — I look forward to hearing how you get on!! At that point i was frustrated at my efforts at weight loss. Excersing was not for me and eating salads put me into a bad temper. I was begining to think maybe i would never loose weight but then i read this wonderful article and realized may be i should give it a try… Eating one meal a day. I look great and am never hungry!!! Just one thing, what does it mean when you wake up still really full from the night before?
Did I eat too much? For example,last night I had salad, oven cooked fresh salmon with soy and ginger, brown rice a lot and broccoli and 3 glasses of red wine.
Maybe its the carbs that did it. If I get hungry during the day, I eat some natural almonds or a spoon full of yoghurt or have some coffee and that seems to work.
I am 74 kilos and need to get down to 57 by end June I hope this is possible with this diet. I am so tired of counting calories and points and watching what I eat. I really hope this one works. Anyone have any tips? Great going, you can do this! Do you have any tips? Thanks for this affirmation. I am currently doing something similar. I do have a mid morning snack boiled egg or celery or apple and mid afternoon snack like the mid morning one then eat my meal after 5 sometime.
I drink lotsa water, coffee no sugar or cream or tea plain all day long. Just wanted to give you an update. There have been some days when I am really hungry either mid morning or early afternoon. Then I find myself obsessing about food. So then I just have my Big meal then. At first I was worried that it would hurt the weight loss, but not at all- I continue to lose steadily. So on days where I am REALLY hungry, and decide to make an early big meal, then at night right before bed, I will have a small bowl of fiber cereal with a little milk and an apple- so that I go to bed with food in my stomach and can sleep.
The weight loss continues as before. And that early meal holds me for the day! The small snacks are a brilliant idea because they keep you on track. That can put on far too much pressure.
Thanks for the blog. I met herschel walker yesterday. I am 43 years old. Hi Tony, I know what you mean. Lots of people start this diet and then seem to abandon it — not so many follow through with it.
Today is day This is about a calorie deficit per day. My Basal Metabolic Rate from a website is about calories. I simply eat it at dinner time. Sometimes that makes for an interesting meal. The chemical sugar swings are gone. My goal is 60 lbs of weight loss. As I lose weight my BMR will drop. So it will go slower as I go forward. It took me a while before I was able to where you are. How does one go all day without eating?
By simply doing it. However, I have found a few techniques that seem to help. Sloth, boredom, idle time; these all make me hungry. If I work all day and am focused then food becomes secondary.
Second, drink plenty of anything. I keep a case of water in my car. I keep a case of water in a small fridge in my workshop on the farm. I keep a pitcher of splenda sweetened tea in the fridge in the house. At least for me I have found that the more I eat, the more I want to eat. This is especially true of sugar and carbs. Fourth, have a 5 Hour Energy.
Fifth, if I have to eat something then I go ahead and eat enough to get me to dinner. The one time so far that I really felt like I had to eat something — or go crazy — I ate two ounces of ham. There are millions of people in the world who survive on a lot less food than I do. There is no way to lose weight without feeling that feeling whatever that feels like to you. So the more I feel it, the more progress I am making.
Anyone can go a couple hours. I can go a couple more hours. I can eat whatever I want! I can buy them. I can hold them. Whatever I want to eat I can eat, and should eat… for dinner! If I like to plan things, then I make detailed plans of what I will eat and when.
Instead tap into areas of your mentality where you have a track record of success and power. Project your eating plan through that powerful part of your psyche. These are things that have helped me through 17 days. So, the scale is always wrong in some way or another. Just focus on the process. The results will take care of themselves. That is a fantastic summary and reflects my own experience and thinking. You are so right about that.
In fact for me that has been the toughest part but ultimately very rewarding. But here is a pretty good one. I just reasoned that most of what we see regarding diet and weight loss is either wrong or designed to get us to part with our money. I have long suspected that starvation mode in the context of dieting was a myth and I also suspected that the metabolism thing was just rubbish too.
Glad you sent this my way though. Day 30 Status I wanted to do push ups and sit ups every day. I think the biggest issue with making a change like this is when people try to change their basic nature. But I can control when I eat. That is a tremendous result. Having the discipline to keep going and make the progress you have made is well worth celebrating. I think you are nicely placed for anotheer good month one day at a time, of course.
Too many people throw themselves into it. They get injured and disillusioned and let the eating plan slide. I think you have the balance exactly right. Your weight loss is stready and not too extreme. And exercise seems to make me hungry, I am going to start this one whole meal a day, mashed potatoes, pasta salad and yes something sweet but small.
An apple or egg in the morning then this is doable. And walking instead of killing myself at the gym and small amount of weights Here I go…………………. Hi Lisa, sounds like a good plan! Again this weight fluctuates even throughout the day. If I go out and work on my farm weeding crops, building, moving dirt, etc then I could easily weight by 2: If I have a big breakfast and some chocolate milk then I could weigh The exact weight is less important than the trend.
Look at this past week. I went from to and back in 7 days. Regarding my energy levels. A lot of people would think that if you only eat once a day that you would be lethargic, tired or unproductive. Basically, on the farm I get up at 7: After that I do things out of the heat — work in my shop repairing things, pressure can or process foods, shop, etc.
All the while I am also tending to chickens, goats, dogs, meat rabbits, and my daughter. I typically will go to sleep at about I wanted to do push-ups and sit-ups every day. I enjoy running sometimes. I would have done some exercise last week but I got a wicked sunburn on my lower back and then I got sick.
From time to time I have no doubt I will run miles, again without eating before doing it. So, your body uses the energy that it gets from the food that you eat. The energy is there.
The more I do the more energy I have. No doubt you feel great for having made such progress. It happens so often… no change… no change… up a little… no change and then Bingo, Big Change. I did notice yesterday when I weighed myself in the middle of the day I weighed , so I knew it was just a matter of time until I weighed that in the morning. Again, you weight fluctuates throughout the day — especially after working outside or working out, because sweating drops water weight.
Does that mean days will be enough? Also, and more telling, I had to buy new jeans this week. This was my high estimate of weight loss. My expectation was to lose 1. And I do drink scotch and beer.
A meal is the food I want plus the dessert I want. Once you get the hang of skipping breakfast then you have that meal out of the day. That just leaves the middle of the day. I find that business with the weight happens to me too.
I would like to start this as well. I am overweight by 25 kgs 55lbs and have been struggling with for the last ten years. What is your one meal like? The great thing about this is I eat what the familiy eats. Mostly meals based around meat, chicken or fish, with either potatoes or rice, and vegetables. It would have killed me to wait a whole day just to tuck into a bowl of salad and mung beans.
There were some days I got greedy and that slowed my progress. Hi guys, there is a very nice forum for us one meal eaters, it is Edit: I started this diet few days ago and I feel great! David if you know of any or if you can start one please post it here on your blog I check your blog regularly: Thanks for clarifying about the forum I posted and not just deleting my post or ignoring my comment, it was very nice of you! Actually, I think the spam is limited to the General Discussion board.
It looks like a promising forum with some nice people! Thanks for the great blog. I tried something similar, though a bit more drastic as I only ate one meal—but also a very light meal—a few years ago with great, fast results. I am now married, 34 yrs. I just re-started this diet—this time not drastic like before—with the one free meal in the evening, and I know it will work for me. You are rewarded by eating your favorite meals every single evening, and because of that, unlike other diets, this diet is sustainable.
I think that is likely something promulgated by people who freak out when they feel one bit of hunger and cannot deal with it. Or perhaps it does work to keep your metabolism going, but the fact is that severe deficits also work, and the one meal a day without a drastic deficit, works great too. To me, a calorie is a calorie, and so long as you have a deficit, you will lose.
And besides, I find it easy to eat one meal a day without getting hungry. But I also found it way too hard to eat rabbit food multiple times a day for six days a week with only one or two cheat meals on the weekend. And that is frankly IMO a sad way to live given the social emphasis placed on food, the environment we live in which encourages eating, and all the temptations out there.
Its mental torture to watch this and a diet killer. So this one meal a day diet is the best of both worlds. Eat what you want once a day and still lose weight. And over time, for those who feel inclined to do so, we can make changes to the types of food we eat.
Maybe you feel the same way, but for me it was more important to do something about my weight, see some results and feel good about what I was achieving. I may do that at some point, but for now, I find that my priority is to lose the weight first, however I can do that, and this kind of diet has allowed me to finally stick to weight loss plan.
I am sure the health benefits realized by losing several pounds will be good. Not exactly health food, but I lost a bunch of weight and the doctor actually shook my hand because my blood pressure and cholesterol had also improved dramatically, even with tacos and burgers!
I think its important to realize that not every diet is for everyone. For me, this is what works. For me I wanted something close enough to my normal diet. I keep seeing stories about people who change what they eat radically in order to lose weight only to go back to their old diet and put the weight back on. I think that if the beer is ice cold it has fewer calories. Or maybe it was just a dream.
I know this is once a day, but I decided to do breakfast and then dinner. I used to be so skinny and then my 30s hit and my weight has crept up and up. Daily walks with my dog of miles have done nothing to help me lose, lifting weights at the gym did zero.
I would break down calories into little chunks thru the day — calories here, there, and then I would be so hungry at dinner I overate every time. Breaking down between 2 meals though is definitely easier, and I like that I am letting my stomach have a rest.
How can it be natural for people to eat every 3 hours? Do we really believe that back in ancient Rome or Egypt people were carrying around food to nosh on thru the day? I have an app called myfitnesspal on my iPhone and I use it to track my food and exercise. I wish I had thought of doing this sooner. I trained myself to want food at certain intervals, get hungry, etc. This book gave me the insight I needed to see this thing through and re-train myself. Eventually I was able to transition to one meal.
If two meals works best for you, you should definitely stick with that. Most of dieting is mindset, breaking old habits and forming new ones. A week ago I was According to myfitnesspal log I have had a calorie deficit of calories below my calorie limit every day. The idea to treat lunch as a small snack instead of a meal is a good one. I had to force myself to eat and felt even worse.
The vacation may be an interesting challenge for you but you can definitely come out the other side better off. You have it right about the snacks. Snacking is dangerous for me, I have to be so careful or the flood gates open. Its David from May in the post up above. What I wanted to say was congratulations on the successful weight loss.
Even eating one good meal per day is not as easy a diet as I thought it would be! I thought it was going to be easy for me to stick to the diet, but I deviated from it when family came to town. All we seem to do when they come to town is go out to eat, constantly!
So I am back to say I have started the diet once again, about 3 weeks ago, and have stuck to it to a tee this time with no issues and thus far have lost 11 pounds. I seriously hope to remain on it for many more months, and may then ease up on it only slightly and maybe have two meals a day. I think this is something I can stick to long term. Congrats again to everyone who is successfully trying this and good luck!
Well done of dropping the 11 pounds and good luck on getting to your 25lb target. I know from my own experience that it takes persistence and it takes time. I am trying to lose over a lbs and so far this one meal a day diet is working for me. I have been doing it for 2 weeks and ive lost about 6 lbs. I also incorporate a small snack during the day here are some of my choices fruit,a chunk of great cheese w crackers or a bagel w a little butter n jam.
I look foward every evening to a well thought out delicious dinner and sometimes i have dessert,maybe x a week.
I also drink alot of water and do some light walking about 10 minutes most days. And my love and obsession with food is now geared towards that 1 meal which now seems alot more satisfying then 2or 3 mediocre meals. Firstly… well done on losing some weight. Sticking to any diet for a long period of time is going to be challenging, so you have to do it in a way that feels least like a diet. The beauty of eating one meal a day is I ate what I wanted and I ate with the family. It was all very normal.
Without a doubt my own progress was slowed down because I refused to count calories. Had I done so I think I would have lost the weight a lot quicker. I admire your resolve to stick to the plan 7 days a week.
I think you can definitely do it. You sound very positive. Just keep trying different approaches until you find what suits you. Thank u for the encouragement ,i will post often and let u know how this one meal a day diet is working for me. Here is some stats on me ,I am 40 years old w a 20 year old daughter in college and im married. Currently unemployed but looking for work in a bad economy. Thankfully my husband has a good job. I did think about having a cheating day or eating 2 meals at least on the weekends but as i went along the idea of a really good dinner everynite seemed enough so far.
The first week was HELL ,had to get my body adjusted to eating one main meal a day but with some light snacking here and there like i mentioned on my previous post got me thru it.
Once again thank u for this blog its been so helpful and i also like your house cleaning tips. A small snack can cure the first in minutes, but to cure the second I have to wait a whole day! Glad you liked the house cleaning tips! Hi david Just wanted to share that i slipped off plan by eating leftovers and snacking over the last few days. I know the one meal a day plan does work because i did lose some weight when adhering to it.
But found myself struggling a bit of late and would gladly appreciate any advice or tips on how to get back on track and succeed like you did. Just trying to regroup and sharing my experience thus far honestly………. You have a desire to change and with that as your starting point, really good things can happen! Two meal with one of them eaten late evening, like suppertime, also works very well for me and I sometimes slip into that routine when I get bored with just one meal. It took me far too long to lose the weight and I could have done it much quicker had I created a tighter structure.
It was more of a casual desire — and sadly that;s not enough to carry you through the tough times! When I started out on this I had some very powerful reasons to want to achieve my goal. There were times when the reasons and the feelings associated with them faded, but I always found I was able to tap back into them.
Let me know if it makes sense… maybe I could clarify a few bits? Just know that what you want to do is possible and that you can do it. If it takes you a little longer than most, so what? You just do it your way and in your own time. One thing that I have started doing is fixing my One Meal early in the day so it is ready for when I eat at 3pm. I browned a bunch of lean hamburger, put all kinds of spices in it and had it ready for my teeny little whole wheat bread. I am watching my portions, but I am not counting calories — I know it is somewhere in the vicinity of calories, but I am very satisfied after the meal.
This had worked for me too. Have they never seen people in famine? People in the old days used to eat twice a day. And in Theravada Buddhism, monks may only have one meal a day before noon, and that was considered the middle path half way between 2 and 0.
It can be done! Hi david I read your reply very carefully and i reread your original post on the one meal a day plan that worked for you. Like you im not counting calories and all foods are allowed when having my one meal usually i have it in the evening. The one trick that was working for me was that i would make sure that 1-meal was really tasty or something i really looked fowrard to eating for example a nice cut of steak w a baked potato and veggies and a nice dessert like a slice of chocalate cake.
Very yummy indeed and when having hunger pangs during the day from not eating knowing what my evening meal would be sustained me. After thinking about your reply especially the comments that im in the early stages of my weight loss plan im taking your advice on fine tuning what can work best for me.
I agree with you on trying to make this diet not feel like its a diet ,and to m ake it as close to my normal and still giving me results. I just need to figure out some ways during the day until dinnertime how to cope when i do get hungry and if i do allow myself a snack,how to keep tasty yet damage free…. I strongly love this one meal a day plan just need to find the best way to make it sustainable for me looooong term.
If any readers of your blog also can share tips ,ideas or light snack suggestions that get them thru the day that would be appreciated big time on my part. I saw you drank tea alot during the day but i am not a tea or coffee drinker.. Again thank you for this blog ,hope you get alot of sponsers because it is very informativ for people like me…..
I think maybe you have something like that in mind for yourself? I tell myself that the hunger is a good signal and that if my body really needs energy it can get it from my fat stores. When I feel hungry it reminds me that there are others much worse off and if they can go without food for days, then I can certainly manage it for a few hours.
At the moment it suits me to have one main meal slightly smaller than I would usually eat and then a good sized snack of something awesomely tasty just before I go to bed. The thought of doing that keeps me going all day, and means that I can put up with small bland snacks for the rest of the day. I like how you say the snack is to fight off hunger pangs and not to have a pleasurable experience. I am back from vacation and ate waaaaaaay more than once a day.
I plan to wean myself off the morning smoothie perhaps save it for dinner, since I love it so and replace it with an apple. I hate every kind of apple, but they are very nutritious and have lots of fiber. That will fill up my stomach and I can get on with my day and not worry about food until dinnertime. Yeah, this holds true for me too. On the days between the high-days and holidays I tend to work a bit harder to put in a calorie deficit.
Having the apple a day works well for me, but if you like your smoothies, maybe you should stick to having them? Snacking at other times in the day is fine, but of course the trick is not to continue eating. The snacks are definitely functional.
This is what I am aiming for! I am healthy-ish now, no ailments, I want to stay that way. As of tomorrow I am going to do it and keep my own little blog.
I like what you did with the belt, I have a pair of jeans very sexy ones that i want to get on and done up!! Well done and love your site x.
The one meal a day thing is a bit of a mad idea, but it can be adapted to suit your own needs and modified as you go along. The lunch crowd… the Italian food… but on the other hand, those oh-so-sexy jeans! Being a dad does that to a man. Gone were my days as a single guy who ate a light lunch, ran miles at night, and then gorged on a pound of beef with no carbs at around 11 pm with a beer, resulting in a reasonably fit physique for me.
With a wife who cooks good meals and a baby and a lack of time to exercise, I gained a LOT of weight. Add to that the fact that a heavy lunch made me sluggish at work, and then I decided I had to go to extreme measures. Thank you for that. So two weeks ago, I decided to begin. I immediately lost weight by the second day of doing this. That first week was good.
This resulted in me making a slight gain in weight. But my question at this point is this: Cheating is creeping into my day and the small cheats are really starting to add up. But… if you got some early results with it, it might benefit you to return to the way you were doing it when you got the results, i.
Down from several weeks ago to as of today. Not as fast as I would like, but how can one complain about losing a pound a week after so many weeks? And 2 I am worried about what will happen when I re-introduce lunch to my diet. Will I regain all this weight? What I do now is drink coffee with Equal for breakfast and another for lunch. For dinner, I take buckets of vitamins as well as my cholesterol medicine, then I feast. Now doing this HAS resulted in a much-needed weight loss.
But am I wrecking havoc on my body? Regarding the second issue, I will be the first to admit that I am mentally addicted to the idea of lunch. But I sure as heck would like to have it! I mean dinner on a two-meal-a-day diet will still be big like it is now. Nothing else was working, not eating three healthy meals a day and not running long distance several times a week.
If two meals a day is shouting out to you as the way to keep it sustainable, it has to be worth experimenting with for a while. I definitely liked two meals a day and I did lose some weight doing that. I really really need to lose at a minimum about 60 pounds. If I do get hungry, I would pop in a few grapes, or two or three crackers. I am going to now track weight loss and see if I cant get a little slimmer with one meal a day and some excersize. For instance, I just did a Jillian Micheals workout and I can hardly walk…I cant do this for thirty days……id die.
It might not fall off like some of the other fad diets like the atkins diet, no carbs what-so-ever but it may come off. And, like you I would prefer people I know, not to know I am on another weight loss kick. It will be interesting to see if it works for me as well as it has worked for you. On a day to day basis tracking weight can be tough but you just have to have faith that as long as you stick to your eating plan the weight will come off. I can really relate to you wanting to keep it to yourself.
Adopting this as mid to long term lifestyle change helps. Please let me know how you get on! Brooke Good luck to you and I believe you can do it! I have tried every diet there is, practically, none of them worked. I am soooo determined this time. I have about 40 lbs or a bit more to lose and then I am going to have to firm shore up the devastation I have caused.
Boy oh boy is it gonna be some work. On week one, I was seeing a daily loss result on the scales but annoyingly it seems to have stalled for the last five days. I lost about two stone over the course of a couple of months doing a low carb diet but have since put it all back on. You are doing so well! They lie big time! It sounds like you have a good thing going on there.
Having a wider window during which to eat sounds like a great way to do it. I found it so beneficial in that it gave me something to look forward to.
I knew I was in it for the long haul so it was motivation for me to be strict throughout the week. There are conflicting arguments about starvation mode and plateauing. Which is largely why I stopped weighing myself and trusted the feel of my waistband and the view in the mirror and later, the tape measure. Thank you for the reply. The scales showed a difference of 3 lbs in two weigh-ins within 10 seconds of each other today.
Time to ignore it! I refuel at 20, so I should be fine. Would it be between or lower? One of the biggest favours I did for myself with this diet was to ignore all the conventional wisdom about starvation modes and the like and I just got on with it. I got to a point where I started to doubt almost everything I read and wanted to see for myself.
I go for about calories on my dinner plate and the other comes from the dessert and any snacks I eat during the day. I use a small dinner plate and fill it to the edges. Some days I over eat, some days I under eat. Anyway, your plan to leave it for two weeks feels like a good one. Thank you for the calorie estimate.
I managed to sneak in a bag of chocolate popcorn yesterday and justified it. I won the battle with the Curly Wurly. I gave the wretched thing to my wife and she ate it. Not too fast and not too slow but still allows you some room to manoeuvre. I find that I often learn more from my failures than my successes.
Fantastic read and just want I was looking for. I took part in the fasting period of Lent earlier this year and gave up eating two meals, so just had the one in the evening.
I made sure my evening meal was small to medium size and as I stopped feeling hungry, my meals got smaller. I would also drink green tea with some vinegar and honey in it which helped suppress my appetite after dinner. I did not weigh myself, but I knew I was losing weight because my clothes were getting much looser. I also worked out times a week. I enjoyed eating once because I could have small meals and still have my favourite biscuits or even some chocolate after my meals.
I felt good about myself and had so much energy. Due to developing a chest infection second time around, I stopped eating once a day and started eating times and even started eating bread which is like kryptonite to me……. I love it, but it bloats me terribly. Needless to say my clothes have gotten tighter. I want to start back because eating once a day is liberating for me. I do need to ask, is it ok to drink cups if coffee with sugar, no milk or cream? Regarding the coffee, I think one of the best things about this diet is that you can adapt it to suit yourelf.
For me, the tea with whole milk and one sugar got me through the day. It gave me something to look forward to and kept me from raiding the larder. I set out on this diet partly as an experiment to see if I could prove the conventional wisdom wrong — and all that I can tell you is that I have indeed gained some muscle.
There are some pictures here from my 10, push up challenge. He might be right to suggest that your results might be better if you chose a more optimal approach to dieting, i. Third world body builders put on massive muscle on dreadful diets. I was thrilled to receive a reply from you. Still going strong eating once a day, but having some difficulty establishing a cut off time for not eating.
Want to have my dinner between 6pm and 8pm and never let anything pass my lips after that. This seems to be an ongoing battle. Any words of advice?? It is indeed a battle and one I still have to fight.
I finish with something sweet, like a piece of chocolate. I drink a coffee like I would at the end of a meal at a restaurant it signals the end of the meal. I get straight out of the kitchen and do something else. I tap into some negative ot positive thoughts whichever has more pull at the time emotions drive actions. Thanks for the tips, David. Will shorten the window for eating to an hour and then find something to occupy my mind and time.
Things still going well and I am finding it easier to stick to this and the hunger pangs are becoming more easier to manage and ignore. I re-read your blog and have only just seen that you had two meals on the weekend.
Did you find eating two meals on Sunday make eating one meal on Monday more difficult? Yeah, I eat two meals on the weekend. Because the weekend is about family, so I like to sit down with them at lunch and eat with them. Because two meals will pretty much be my lifestyle when I reach my fat loss goal.
Eating is a joy… why deny it? It requires practice and practice often brings failure. I failed a lot to begin with, and I fail less often now. I just kept the long term view that I would eventually learn to deal with it… and mostly, I have. When I get it badly wrong, I start over again the next day. Trial and error, refine as you go along. I swear it took all of 1 or 2 mins the first day to eat all my stuff. Five minutes the second. I will try harder to slow down. This was one of the most intersting post i have read up on about one meal a day diets.
I have read them all,but this one really caught my attention. I have always tryed this way of eating but never made it past friday after starting monday. Every thing you wrote about really made since to me. I like what you said about eating one morsel extra would just send you off to eat more and for me im better off not to eat often like most diets require because id just over eat. I need to do this for me and my marriage my husband never says anything but i know my weight holds us back from going out and doing activities because im so self consious, im gonna try this concept and let you know how im doing.
I believe your post will inspire many people. Do this for yourself. Do it for how it will make you feel to have achieved a small step towards your goal every single day. Make yourself happy first and that happiness has a way of spreading. Your husband will start to see you differently — more because of your state of mind than anything else. See it as a long term thing but also something where you get to win or succeed every day.
Hi David I am so inspired by this whole website!!! Actually, I started out first with intermittent fasting to gain the control of when to eat. I did only one 24 hour day to challenge myself. But I knew sticking to not eating at all, for several days was not my cup of tea. And when I did start back eating I over ate every time so what weight I did lose I gained back and more. In one week I went from lbs. One day at time. But when u said scales can lie. The jeans is a perfect Idea!!
I think that the bottom line is that in order to loose weight, you have to eat less calories than you burn. Unless you want to exercise A LOT, you have to decrease the amount of food you eat. I like eating good food pizza, fried rice, bacon, etc and I like feeling full, but I can deal with hunger, so one meal a day was the obvious diet for me. By the way, I once lived on nothing but MREs for 2 months and lost 20 pounds as a result. Hi Lucy, thanks for sharing your experience.
Your own results are fantastic! For anyone who really struggles with hunger, then I guess meal replacements would be a good option! I found your site because I just started this diet and went looking for others trying it. Like you say, the type of diet working for every individual probably varies. I know it works for me because I did this ten years ago and lost 20 kg in 4 months, from to This suited me at the time as I could eat at a restaurant next to my workplace and as I then lived alone I could have soup in the evening.
This worked so well because I promised myself I could have three courses everyday if I wanted: Soup, main course and dessert. Which I almost never did but I could if I wanted to.
If I was going out to dinner, I just had a bowl of soup at lunch. I think this is an ideal diet for me as there is only one rule. No counting, remembering when to eat next etc. Anyway, I got overweight again so I want to use this method. I started out yesterday at It will be interesting to see how this works out now. I could easily see myself eating a chicken salad for my evening meal during the summer at least. I have been toying with the IF lifestyle and doing loads of research for a while now.
On Thursday I started the 1 meal a day approach and you know what, I lived! Granted I have only done 2 days with 1 meal per day as, like you I plan to eat lunch on the weekends. I lie to eat big meals, my husband is a fantastic cook.
I love wine as well! I used to exercise hours and hours a day just to maintain my weight. So one meal a day for me it is. I turn 40 in September and I want to be on my way to my ideal weight then.
I started drinking spirulina powder with water this morning. It tastes like pond water which I guess it is actually. It works better for me this way. Kgs are fine by me. I used to do Judo when I was younger and less broken and the weight categories were in Kgs. And now at the end I realise that the Last reply is from yesterday!! I once did this kind of diet, but unknowingly.
I lost 15 kg in only 3 months. Well, today was my First day. I plan on taking a Cup of tea with milk and sugar, If i feel weak. Sorry about the kg and cm, German influence.
Yeah, this is a great thread. There are lots of great comments and perspective from others who are trying to make this diet work. Some are definitely doing it! I am 19 years old going on 20 soon.. Smh yeai know almost 6 years. I would say that I need to lose a GoOd pounds.
Which just resulted me losing Muscle and not fat. Because when I stepped on the scale I would weigh lighter than before …. I just have one question …. Are you sure you can eat whatever you want when you have that. One meal a day was a means to an end for me. I wanted to limit the times between which I could eat a meal because it took away any other choice.
I pretty much ate anything I wanted, but to be fair I already had a reasonably balanced diet with fruit and vegetables featuring strongly in many of my meals. And also how big should your portion size be? I did eat some of the things you mentioned but not all the time.
Somewhere along the line I think we have to learn to make better choices about our nutrition and this diet has been a great way for me to do that. Portion size is difficult. A plate full of lard is obviously different to a plate full of lettuce. Thanks for answeing my questions!
Alright so ill take it into consideration that certain foods have to be eatin in moderation. And ill make sure that my One meal a day consist of mostly healthy foods majority of the time.
Umm… do u think it would be ok for me to drink Diet Coke Zero calories thrum the day? Ofcourse ill drink lots of water also. Reading some of the other comments and your story I am Super excited to start this.
