    Set point theory: your body is predisposed to a weight range and resists any attempt to change it through biological mechanisms; dieting always results in return to pre-diet weight (+ some). "Our bodies essentially have internal 'weight clocks' that are set for a certain percentage of body fat...

    So basically I lost 20 pounds last year, VERY slowly which was desperate but okay because the first 10 pounds were down in 1 month but then it took forever to lose the rest. But I actually got to my dream weight and loved it there so I loved the controll I had and I could eat about 800cals a day...

    Interesting paper on very low calorie diets: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-021-03663-4 Basically, their gut microbiome becomes *less* efficient after severe caloric restriction, so that it's actually *harder* to absorb nutrients after a diet!

    I'm trying to recover yet again and have been slowly increasing my intake. However, I haven't increased very much lately and I'm definitely still gaining weight. I'm afraid that I will continue to gain to a normal weight on this amount and then won't be able to eat more without...

    sometimes all I wanna do is correct all these people talking about starvation mode and how if you eat lower than 1200cal all of it will be stored as fat bullshit, and how your metabolism goes from burning 2000cal a day to zero overnight cause "STARVATION MODE" like omg the amount of times I...

    Good morning MPA This is a direct follow up to this thread, which links to a podcast episode here, which many people asked for an overview of in replies. At first, I looked up a more convenient episode by a different podcaster with very similar title, which in fairness wasn't incredibly useful...

    Okay so I've always had issues with this show, but this particular episode is bugging the crap out of me. The "nutritionist" has almost no idea what she's talking about, consistently insults + body shames the guests, gives out false and downright stupid information, and just doesn't really do...

    I'm barely eating and I'm not losing any weight. Is it because my body is in starvation mode? How do you all starve yourselves or severely restrict and still lose? I actually used to lose more when I ate way more than I am now. #frustrated

    So I've heard a lot about the importance of breakfast being that it can help you not to snack through the day and it kicks in your metabolism and energizes you well. But people also say that if you fast entirely your body will go into starvation mode so, i'm wandering what do people prefer? Do...

    We all know that most people with anorexia don't believe in starvation mode. But is this through experience or by reading about it and coming to your own conclusion? Personally, I think it's made up by doctors. Doctors know that people who have no willpower to eat very little for a long time...

    We all know that most people with anorexia think that starvation mode is a myth. But do you have those beliefs through personal experience or just because that's what you have concluded from reading about it? For me, I think it's made up because of how much money doctors can make by having the...
