The RIGHT and WRONG Ways to Lose Weight

3. Don’t Starve Yourself

While skipping meals and eating very little food every day might seem like a super fast way to lose weight, your body probably won’t react the way you expect. When you cut down too much on eating your body has a tendency to put itself into what might be best described as “survival mode.” In other words, your body knows something’s up and it slows down your metabolism in order to burn less fuel and hang on to those fat stores so it can try to delay what it perceives as starvation. That would allow you to survive longer if you were in an actual starvation situation.
