Losing weight fast starvation

Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight fast starvation


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 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.
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.
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.
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?

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.
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 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 Anyone else losing ketones and going into starvation mode? What did you do?
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 A ''starvation diet" is very very bad on your body. Just because your are losing weight, doesn't mean you are healthy. When you are done with your ''starvation diet'' once you start eating again, you will just gain the weight back. Plus, soda isn't good for you, it has a lot of sodium, which will make you retain water, even diet soda.
Avatar f tn t be something a spa would try to put in their lineup is that people who lose a lot of weight in a short time almost always come back to their original weight within a year or so. Fast, extreme weight loss often has that outcome. Because obesity is such a problem, the research is going hard and fast to come up with answers. I think recently they announced research into a drug that showed promise, coming at weight gain as being the result of a genetic lack and in some way making a correction.
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 "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.
Avatar f tn Have you thought of keeping a food journal, if even for a couple of weeks, to make sure your getting enough calories and the right kinds of foods? You could also measure yourself to see if your losing inches instead of weight. Don't forget even if you know what your doing your body sometimes takes a little longer to figure it out. Don't stop what your doing.
Avatar f tn Yes I'm I'm the same boat lost 90 lbs then got pregnant and have been gaining like crazy! I'm at 33 weeks and have gained almost 40lbs. My midwife tells me it's because my body was shocked from weight loss and put itself into starvation mode to try and support the baby.
Avatar f tn If you are aiming at losing weight, it is important to calculate your current BMI and the target BMI. The target BMI should be in a healthy range. Aside indulging in moderate amounts of physical exercise it is also essential to maintain a healthy diet plan. It is important to know that a diet plan is not about cutting down calories; it’s about ‘healthy’ eating. With cutting on diet one may initially lose weight but this may remain static or increase later.
