LOL.... sorry but thats funny....BUT I have to say," yes ma'm".. you do have to eat..NOT because of a starvation mode...if you don't eat you lose..period. But at what physical cost???? Food is fuel and not just fuel NUTRIENTS, minerals and vitamins thaT MAKE UP AND SUSTAIN OUR BODIES..and if you do not eat, your digestive system shuts down....eating prompts the stomach to produce acid and gastric juices for digestion and elimination .........PROPER, HEALTHY body functions.Phens goal is to help you be able to only eat what your body needs and not to over indulge. To say not to worry about eating on purpose.............Is absurd! PERIOD!!!
To do that......is literally drug induced Anorexia, to think you shouldn't eat alters your healthy eating views..............you may not look like a concentration camp victim any time soon.....I sure wouldn't..too much junk in my trunk!!!
But your body will SUFFER the deprivation of nutrients, vitamins etc..whether or not you take a multivitamin...............acid will burn your stomach and esophogus. and start an endless cycle of health issues.
No this will not happen over night and you will probably feel and look good temporarily.
This kind of thinking..(of it being ok not to eat).....Sends any one to the other end of an eating disorder.The goal here is to develop HEALTHY EATING habits.............. and view and USE food in a healthy way.
I agree if you aren't starving, do not think in terms of a huge meal... as someone else said fruit, a granola bar, some cheese or protein even a slim fast maybe but have solid foods also..Just keep your stomach and intestines moving. Losing weight is the immediate issue here, I know... but your long term maintenance and most importantly is your health. would you let your child husband or even pet go without food??? No.., Love yourself also..........
