The wisdom of the dieting world states, "Starvation mode makes your body stop losing weight."

So, how come people in refugee camps get down to skin and bones? I am not saying it is a healthy thing to do, but, if you are on a very restricted diet, you may retain weight for a few days, but your body will eventually have to start burning what is stored. Either that or start pulling calories/energy out of thin air.

I think a low amount of calories can be dangerous, but this idea of starvation mode needs to stop. It takes a long time for people to reach starvation mode, and a very low body fat percentage. You don't just reach it from having too few calories.

You Know You Are Overweight When:
When you need help getting out of a chair
When your thighs rub together
When you sigh heavily when attempting to tie your shoes
when you just leave them untied

Forget "starvation mode" that is bunk. I am not sure what type of fast you are doing, but that sure is a small amount of calories!

How Do You Stay Motivated?
The diet is non negotiable. Because I promise you if you quit for long enough, youll look back and say, "where would I be if i would have kept it up"
As for the exercise, skip it. Your body will tell you when it needs exercise. As you eat better and fuel yourself in a more efficient way, your body will tell you it needs to burn energy. You ever see really active people that go nuts when they can't get a run in? Thats because their bodies crave exercise. If you are eating well, eventually your body will tell you to get up and move around.
