Diet =/= Skipping Meal

diet skip meal





However, do not skip meals or drastically reduce your eating portion as in long run, it would affect your metabolism.

Body needs energy/ calories for daily operation; but if the calories intake falls significantly below the consumption level, the body will automatically enter into “Energy Conservation” mode to prepare you for the starvation, i.e. the metabolism will become slower and slower, and instead of burning fat, it will consume energy through dissolving muscle or other organs. As the result, BMR would also drop due to the reduction in muscle mass.

Your body weight may seem dropping at first when you skip the meal; due to lower metabolism, there is higher chance for your body weight to bounce back when you eat back the normal portion of food.
