Interesting link: Eat enough!!!

instagram.com/p/BVVMnicjiXH/

Hope this link works. It is a picture of a woman before while eating irregularly and doing cardio compared to when she began eating 2,000 calories and day and did strength training. It proves the theory that eating too little is not effective at all. She is much leaner and more muscular with smaller measurements in the after picture.

I finally learned this lesson even though many " losers " tried to tell me. Once I ate more I lost seven pounds in the last two weeks and I even cheated once! Before that I spent two and a half months trying to reverse the damage. It's finally working again. Thank you everyone for your support along the way. Good luck to you all!

Um.. I'm going to be super picky and point out that one single example does not prove any theory. It can support it, but one incident could be an anomaly, as it's statistically insignificant.

There is some sense there though. If you reach a plateau at 800 kcal, further kcal reduction is not the way to go.

Neither is constantly increasing the amount of activity we do; we only have a finite amount of recovery ability.

Indeed, but that's not what I said. All I wrote was that a single incident 'proves' nothing: it could be an anomaly. If we want proof, we need more than one example, as there are also plenty of examples 'proving' the opposite.

The link works, melhall and confirms what moreless and others always tell us i.e. It is counterproductive to eat a very low calorie diet. I only started to lose when I accepted I was eating too little.👍

No exercise yet. It's hard to find the time. When I did it before I got down to a size 4-6. It really worked I just have to make myself do it. I did pyramid sets like bodybuilders where you do more weight as you lessen the reps. I will go soon!

I just do one or two warm ups with lighter weights, then a power set of 6 to 8 reps, emphasising the lowering of the weight, rest 3 seconds then one final rep.

With you on that! Our bodies are designed to work and with good fuel! When we don't nourish them they stop working properly and close down, conserving everything they can.
