Starvation/Conservation Mode does not work how you think it does. You are most likely NOT in starvation mode.
Conservation mode is based off of data from the Minnesota Starvation Experiment. They recruited 36 young men of varying body types to 24 weeks of extreme calorie restriction, approximately 50% of their daily caloric needs. For the first couple days of semi starvation they actually experienced…
Yes everyone, read all about it. You need to read about 36 men who negate the experience of millions if not billions of people fat and otherwise, throughout the ages, all around the world, who’s rate of use and storage of energy altered and fluctuated before and during their dieting careers.
It’s peculiar the way fatness is the only state where others default to not realizing you have moment to moment, day to day lived experience of being yourself-which happens to include fatness.
That somehow, because for the ignorant, fatness is all about what they read about fifth or six hand, that this is somehow equally the same for you who’s speaking from actual experience!!!
How can you begin to tell someone how odd that is, if they don’t know already?
