Not sure - i've probably got it in one of my essays from 1st year... if i can find it.
The starvation response is quite complicated, some people will use fat as a fuel and produce ketones, which has its only implications.
There's a much simpler way to avoid sabotaging bad food, just don't buy it!
I'm glad it has come to this in a way. When I used to read this thread regularly over the summer I felt quite bad because I wasn't restricting my food or exercising as much as some of the people in this thread. I ate quite a lot of food but it was healthy food and the only exercise I had was my 2 hours a day job as a pub cleaner. I still lost 22lbs though and got myself to a healthy weight/size/BMI but I got upset sometimes thinking that if I met some of the people on here in real life, I would get called fat or weak or something.
It's a shame it has to be like this. I am losing weight healthily, 24lbs since September because I really want to change my eating habits for good and when I found this I liked the idea that there were people to talk to on here about it. However, I can totally see where your all coming from. I just try and ignore all the "dodgy" posts and pay attention to the sensible ones. .
I miss the good old days of this thread. I agree with Cheesy, posts here make me feel very inadequate and I've lost ~3 stones and am a size 8-10 on top and 10-12 on the bottom. Heh. Let's get back to the good old days, please.
Same i lost 0.0001 stone i would be devistated if this thread got closed!
oh_baby_yeah_baby, I'm sure lessthanthree wasn't referring to you.
meh, no offence but if people can't distinguish between what is normal and healthy, and what one may consider slightly dangerous tips, then i suggest the whole soc be locked for good. It really can't be doing people any favours at the moment.
