One of the things that keeps people from achieving their desired weight loss results is that they occasionally starve their bodies.
There are two basic ways to do this. One of them is that it happens accidentally – for example, when you are busy and forget to eat.
Another is when you intentionally deprive your body of food to try to “accelerate” your results.
Regardless of how it happens, every scenario in this case is equally damaging. Although you’re reducing the calories you eat, which can result in short-term weight loss, the key here is that you’re slowing down your metabolism.

This means that after hunger passes, your body holds on to the next meal you eat for life, expecting to be starved again.
If you allow starvation to become a habit, you are actually contributing to your own weight gain in the future
So make sure you don’t space your meals more than 4 hours apart. As long as you do this, you’ll be supporting the healthy metabolism you need to lose the kind of weight you’re committed to.
