    Hi,

    You're completely right. When you starve yourself, you put your body into a defense mode...it is afraid to use up it's fat stores because it's afraid you won't feed it and it'll need them, so you notice that you don't tend to lose. I've worked in Emergency Medicine for twelve years and I don't get to eat very regularly and tend to be up for 20-30 hours at a time so my food diary is over my allowed calories about 3 days a week. I guess when you're up for 24 hours, you've gotta eat more than 1200 cal. lol I've still managed to maintain or lose by having my cheat day once a week and not starving myself. Congrats on the loss!!!

    Nic

    MY six shooter is slowing down. Time to switch it up again. You know switching up my food intake has made my diet fun I'm so not bored yet.
