Avatar f tn 500 cals isn't a starvation diet. In fact most 'starvation' stuff I.e. starvation diet, starvation mode isn't more than a myth. If she can maintain it healthily and go back to 'regular eating' subtly she'll continue losing weight quickly.
Avatar f tn 500 calories is a starvation diet and if that's all you eat, your body will actually hold onto to fat in an effort to keep from starving. You need more calories than that, just to stay alive.
Avatar m tn Hi, You need to eat to loose weight. You are putting your body into starvation mode and therefore anything you eat goes straight into store fatsecause your body doesn't know when you are going to feed itself again. Please be careful and go and see your dr about proper weight loss on a slow and steady pace.
Avatar f tn It's not really "starvation" mode, it's survival mode. When the body senses that there isn't enough calories coming in, it slows metabolism in order to hold onto existing fat stores in order to survive. Your body needs so many calories/day just to exist - that's to maintain heart, kidney, liver, brain function, digestion, etc... those things the body does "involuntarily".
Avatar f tn I would suggest making an appointment with your family doctor to discuss a realistic weight loss and a possible new food plan to achieve this new realistic goal. Losing 15 lbs in 2 weeks is not realistic and can put your health in jeopardy, big time. I wish you well.
570898 tn?1286202161 Hello all! I'm having a lot of trouble kick starting my new life changes (eating healthy, exercising, etc.) and I thought maybe a fast was in order. I read about a juice fast where you drink so many ounces every 30 minutes to an hour which keeps you from feeling too hungry and prevents your body from going into starvation mode and burning your muscle instead of fat. It's a fast you do for 2-3 days max and some people say they feel a lot better and more energized afterward.
Avatar f tn First if your body is not getting enough foods it can easily go into starvation mode and decide to hold or even gain weight. 1200 calories seems very low, especially given how much you exercise. So maybe you should keep your food around 1300 at minimum? It's hard to know the "sweet" spot that will keep your body healthy while loosing weight, but if you don't find it you will have a really hard time loosing weight.
Avatar f tn I think Barb explained this well. Her suggestion to vary your caloric intake by a few hundred cals is sound advice. That said, I'll explain in my own words and between the responses, perhaps you'll get a better understanding of what it is. Starvation mode is an explanation, theory for why weight loss may slow down when calories are significantly reduced. Reducing 500 calories a day would lead to a one pound weight loss in a given week. A 1000calorie reduction would lead to 2 pounds.
Dog Hi! Weight gain and loss can be very difficult to explain or understand. It certainly sounds like your calorie intake is less than your calorie outgo--meaning that you should be in negative balance. It may be that your body has entered starvation mode since your calorie restriction is so severe. In starvation mode, your body hangs on to every bit of weight possible. It is also possible that you haven't waited long enough.
Avatar n tn So I started not eating breakfast to lose weight (calorie reduction.) I don't drink anything but water, and my meals are basically the same as they were before I did no breakfast. But no weight loss, instead 2 more lbs gained. I read something about your body conserving calories in starvation mode when it senses the calories are not enough. But I do not have any of the fatigue and hair loss symptoms of the "starvation mode." So, what is going on, why am I not losing weight?
Avatar f tn now can i lose weight easly and how can i lose weight?

579258 tn?1250649343 Sorry I missed a few days , out of town. I did 3 execise videos in a row since I missed a couple. It's nice to go back to the days you missed and be able to watch all of the videos. I'm still stuck at losing only 1 lb. Just don't know what to do other than;a total starvation diet. I don't eat fast foods, I'm not one for sweets, I gave up the soda, I have food allergies so I have to watch out for that.
Avatar f tn Your body may soon think its in starvation mode and do the same thing that happen to me. Be excited about losing weight but be careful losing it so fast.

Avatar f tn Anyone else losing ketones and going into starvation mode? What did you do?
Avatar n tn Does anyone know if it is normal to have breast tenderness while doing the hcg diet shots? I also am not losing weight as fast as they claim, in fact I have only lost 5 pounds in almost 2 months. The clinic I go to does not do the 500 calorie diet, they just require you eat no bread, wheat and pasta. I'm becoming very frustrated and discouraged because I have done all they ask and losing no weight. Discouraged in Az.
Avatar f tn Hi! I have been trying to lose some weight for the holidays- but I feel like it's just not happening! I'm eating 1200 calories a day, give or take 100 calories, and I'm trying to have meals based around fruit, or veg. But i'm not losing weight as quickly as I usually would. I only want to lose maybe 5 more pounds.
1574872 tn?1295991417 Sometimes when your body is under extream stress it may decide to store everything and not give way to losing it even through exercise. I know gaining ton of weight can be stressful but try to relaxe. Do something to relaxe more, like if you enjoy reading, read more often or listen to music. I gain waight really fast under stress. Even through diet and exercise it slows down my weight losse.
Avatar f tn ) In terms of the weight loss tool it means setting your base level (accurate actual weight, activity levels, age, sex) and then earning more calories by recording extra exercise) Let me know how you get on :)
Avatar f tn The whole idea of losing weight is get healthy and keep the weight off. The more yoyo dieting we do, the harder it is to maintain steady weight later in life.
Avatar f tn "Some people fast as a way to lose weight. Others fast to try to detox their bodies, or for religious reasons. If you're fasting to lose weight, you may want to reconsider. The weight loss may not last after you finish fasting. If your goal is to detox your body, you should know that there's no proof that it works. Your body naturally detoxes itself. Fasting diets aren't all the same. Some allow only liquids like water, juice, or tea.
