Weight Loss The Sensible Way : Starvation. "Survival Mode"

Weight Loss The Sensible Way : Starvation. "Survival Mode"
Starve the body too much, and it will go into "survival mode", this slower metabolic state has been a part of human DNA for thousands of years. This "survival mode" was necessary for early man to survive when food was not so readily available. Fat storage has evolved to a much higher degree in bears where the fat storage must last them an entire winter, the slower metabolic rate of the bear is the reason they can go so long without food. The human body metabolism will also slow down in "survival mode" allowing the body to function longer without any food. The negative effects of starvation is that you'll feel irritable, weakened and less alert. The body will lose fat and muscle in "survival mode" as the body will begin to devour itself.

The chance of regaining loss weight with starvation is greatly increased as the body will store nearly all the food you eat as fat and burn it gradually in the "survival mode" condition. Therefore not only will you continue to feel run down, you will also gain weight faster when most of the food you eat is converted to fat and stored while in "survival mode". A sensible weight loss program will always include healthy food choices but cutting calories drastically with starvation will end up giving you the opposite results that you want. Plus the negative effects of starvation will be reason enough not to continue this ineffective and dangerous way to lose weight.
