Natural Weight Loss
 
Consuming too little calories for the efficient performance of the metabolism eventually results in additional accumulated fat. This may sound like a contradiction, but consuming a calorically deprived diet over a long period of time in fact results in the body beginning to hold on to the fat stores it has and also to add to them. Since a stable food supply was not assured to our hunter-gatherer ancestors, the body developed the additional capability to slow down the metabolism and hoard extra fat throughout times of famine. If we did not have this capability, we could not have survived the lean times.

This is the main cause that very low-calorie or hunger diets do not work in the long term. Nearly everybody who has at any time been on a calorically deprived diet knows that initially the pounds just melt off. However, ultimately you arrive at a plateau where you stop losing weight, regardless of how hard you make an effort. That is your body's natural fat-storing survival system taking over.

Some studies have also shown a surprising link with chronic caloric deprivation and obesity. Research has shown the associations between obesity, hunger, and poverty. Poor women who every so often go with no food so that their children can eat are frequently obese. The more frequently you starve yourself to attempt to lose weight, the slower and less capable your metabolism will turn out to be.

You have to consume a certain quantity of calories every day to lose body fat and maintain and build lean muscle mass. Consuming too little calories can even cause your body to cannibalize its own lean muscle to obtain the nutrients required for survival.
