If you're barely eating and feeling sick, then yes. Starving yourself isn't the way to lose weight, its a way to mess up your health and your metabolism. If eating enough to satisfy calorie requirements to lose weight is hard for you, then start adding in high-calorie protein bars into the mix as people suggested above; in fact, I think you should go back and read those posts like I did, there is a lot of good advice in there and I think if you had read those posts you would already know that not eating enough is bad and does the exact opposite of what you want. good luck Smile

DO NOT STARVE YOURSELF ! you will mess up your metabolism and your body will start to store more fat and burn less when you do eat..Your body might be thinner but it will be flabby and that is gross..Eat small high protein meals throughout the day...balanced with high fiber..ie vegetables along with whole grains

Oh man, the metabolism " stoking" myth is way too prevalent still. You can eat once or 100 times a day and your metabolism will not change. The total calories of the day are what matter.
Love your food or risk failure. No quick fixes, this is a lifestyle change. No extremes are needed just consistency.

yep this is true, but it is much better to eat 5 small meals than 1 massive one.

Here's why...

When you stuff yourself with too much food in one sitting then it takes a lot more energy for your body to digest the food. This saps the energy and all we feel like doing is going and sleeping.

Also eating foods that are easier to consume again will keep energy levels up.
My current diet regime and philosophy....

Eat a healthy diet. A tuna salad takes less energy to digest than a steak. Wink Have more energy, eat right. Drink more water. Water increases energy, flushes toxins and controls metabolism to help lose weight. 10-20 minute run/sprint every day.

Check out this workout I found to help me lose weight recommended by Dr Oz. Anyone joining me let me know. http://www.squidoo.com/does-insanity-really-work

When I get a sweet tooth I eat 2 Tbs of peanut butter...only 7 gms of carbs. It really works because the peanut butter is thick and rich and you can savor the sweetness for a long time.
