How many calories must one consume to avoid starvation mode?


I'm trying to lose weight and was wondering how many calories one must consume in order to prevent starvation mode. I know that ate more than that today, but for future reference, what are the amounts?
----------

You guys are retards. You can eat 5000 calories a day and still go into starvation mode. This is caused by eating one meal a day or not eating often enough. If there is food constantly in your stomach your body will think it doesnt need to store fat and wont. It has nothing to do with how much you eat more so how often you eat.  (+ info)

How many calories does the body burn while in starvation mode?


and how many (calories) a day does it need to get out of it? and what happens while in starvation mode? how long before a human body gets into this state? Also, does taking vitamin supplemints daily, (providing all the essential vitamins and minreals that the body needs) keep it out of it?
----------

Starvation mode will slow your body's consumption of energy. That's why people feel weak when they are starving. Your body says "Only use this energy if it will get us food."

I would assume in starvation mode you would burn between 960-1440 calories / day depending on your size. As compared to a nurished person who might burn 1600-2000 calories /day (not inclusing physical activity).

Supplying the body multi vitamins will not stop you from going into starvation. Starvation is the lack of sugar, carbohydrates, protein, alcohol, and fat that you normally break down to produce energy. Multi-vitamins are mearly absorbed into the bloodstream and broken down into vital coponents by the liver, not the muscles/brain/other organs.  (+ info)

Around 1500 should be fine to keep you out of starvation mode. Depends on how active you are, but the signs can be weight gain, tiredness, irritable, water retention, dizzy, feeling hungry all the time.

Starvation mode as in havent eaten regularly for a long time so your body isnt dropping weight? Then its one month for every year that you screwed up your body.

Fiber... natural fibers and veggies will fill you up.. ... dont forget those complex carbs and protein.

How to avoid starvation mode with anorexia?


Is it possible to avoid starvation mode when only eating dinner everyday (under 500 calories) and drinking alot of water? Please professional, researched answers, no opinions.
----------

If you avoid carbohydrates for 3-7 days (each person is different) you will enter a state called "ketosis" where your body would burn fat for energy. You will know when you're in ketosis because you will feel more energetic and you will lose your appetite.

However if you eat any carbohydrates you will be pulled out of ketosis immediately (ie. no more fat burning).  (+ info)

How to get out of the starvation mode safely & in a healthy way without gaining back weight ?

Please help .

Cut out all junk food, regular and diet soda. Buy brown rice and 100% whole wheat grains. Eat vegetables, fruits, chicken breast, fish. Drink pure water. Don't forget exercise. Eat 3 meals a day but split them in half so you have six meals to keep metabolism working all the time. You can do this. Good luck!!!  (+ info)

How much weight will one loose in 3 weeks on a starvation diet?


My sister is a anorexic. That happen recently. I don't know whether she is really anorexic. You see she is on a starvation diet only drinking water and sleeping since last week and plans to do for 3 weeks. I'm really scared and concerned for her.
----------

I hate to tell you this, but she could die from that. You need to tell somebody. There's only ONE WAY to lose fat - and that is to create a calorie deficit. However, there are two ways to create a calorie deficit - one is to decrease your food intake so you are eating less than you burn, the other is to increase your exercise and activity so you are burning more than you eat.

Of the two ways to create a calorie deficit, burning the fat is far superior to starving it. You see, cutting calories too much causes weight loss at first, but it also causes muscle loss and it eventually leads to a decrease in metabolism, so the weight loss stops. This is very common on conventional diets, right? You lose weight in the beginning, but then you hit a plateau that you just can't break through. Cutting calories even more at this point only digs you even into a deeper "metabolic hole."

Eating more of the right foods (up to a certain point) actually increases your metabolic "heat" like putting wood on a fire. Food is energy; food is fuel, and it produces (metabolic) heat.

Exercise burns calories and creates a calorie deficit, but the real advantage of exercise over diet is that exercise increases your metabolism, dieting slows it down. Exercise also has major health benefits, while starvation can only create health problems.

So if you eat more (healthy foods) and exercise more, you get a double increase in metabolism. If you eat less and exercise less you get a double decrease in metabolism. That makes complete sense doesn't it?

The IDEAL exercise program for fat loss has a combination of cardiovascular (aerobic) training and strength training. But ultimately, you're not likely to stick with exercise long term unless you choose activities you enjoy - so pick something you enjoy, even if it doesn't follow the guidelines of "traditional" fat loss programs. It's better to do something than nothing, and all exercise counts.

Some people may have orthopedic problems which limit the type of exercise they can do. But nearly everyone can walk. So if you can walk, then walk. And almost everyone can do some type of strength training. Instead of focusing on what you can't do or what you don't like to do, direct your attention to what you CAN do and what you would like to do.

Maybe you don't like being couped up inside all the time. Maybe you'd prefer hiking or jogging outside. Or maybe boxing or martial arts sounds cool to you. Maybe you like basketball or tennis. Maybe you'd enjoy classes, or yoga or pilates. Your options are nearly unlimited, but you have to do something or your body will begin to deteriorate.

As you increase your lean muscle mass, you'll also get a permanent increase in your resting metabolic rate. Muscle is what drives your metabolism, keeps you young and makes you look more physically attractive. Others will notice how good you look, and you'll feel better about yourself too. Yes, you may lose weight from diet alone, but you're likely to end up a "skinny fat person" with a slow metabolism and very little lean body mass (not to mention, you'll probably gain back all the fat)

Last, but not least, be careful what you say to yourself over and over because that tends to program your subconscious mind and create your self image. If you've been repeating to yourself for years, "I'm not big on exercise" or "I'm not an exercise person", that eventually becomes a part of your identity. You always tend to behave in alignment with your identity in order to stay "true to yourself."

Maybe when you look in the mirror after just a few weeks and see your body start to change you'll begin to like enjoy exercise a LOT. It can get addictive, you know. The endorphins that are released when you exercise are like opiates. Ever hear of "runners HIGH?" Ever hear of an "exercise addict?" What would YOU rather be hooked on? Forget about popping pills, Your body is the most exquisite pharmacy on the planet. Exercise is a better fat burner, health creator, energy producer and anti-depressant than any man-made drug will EVER be. Exercise can be fun and FEEL GOOD too.

Human beings were meant to move. Bodies don't lose their function by being used too much and "wearing out", they lose their function by not being used enough and "rusting out." So if the positive benefits of exercise don't motivate you enough, then just picture yourself 10, 20 years from now and imagine what will happen to you if you DON'T start exercising today.
