The other thing we have to remember - and something I struggle with a lot - is that if we don't eat enough
food each day, the body can 'believe' that it's not going to get enough food for a long time and will go into what is sometimes called "starvation mode". This is where the body won't loose weight because it's slowing down the metabolism to prepare for long periods without enough food - so food reduction can be counter productive - not to mention incredibly frustrating!!
Quite simply stated, I hate food. I don't want to eat and never get hungry, and I don't like to cook, which definitely complicates things. LOL. But, I also know that if I'm not careful, I'll never loose any weight because my body seems to have an affinity for being in that 'starvation mode' - surely due to my not liking to eat.
