Tag Archives: starvation diet



Many humans don’t exercise, can overeat, and can eat and drink anything and don’t gain weight. It is obvious that the claimed sources for weight gain do not apply to many humans. They were just born lucky with fortunate genes and do not have a problem with their weight no matter what their lifestyle.

Some humans put on weight in old age or gain weight because they start taking drugs which alter metabolism and cause weight gain. Many humans gain more weight as they age and women frequently gain weight after a second pregnancy or after menopause. This is all very normal.

Binge eating affects the weight of sumo wrestlers by increasing body fat stored so it is possible for some predisposed to weight gain to gain more weight by overeating.

The sad fact is that if you were born fat or have been born with a tendency to get fat then you will be overweight even though you exercise, don’t overeat, or eat low calorie foods.

Many humans are just born to be fat and there is very little which can be done to reduce weight unless you go on a starvation diet and stay on one permanently. Failing to starve yourself constantly the result will be that you will go back to your overweight weight.

Weight reducing pills and fad diets may make you lose a few pounds in the short duration but once you start to eat normally again then you will gain back all the weight which you lost. Yo yo dieting where you are losing some weight and gaining it back again is a fact of life for humans trying to fight mother nature who wants you to be fat or at an above average weight.

The type of food which you eat affects some humans and a processed food diet rich in carbohydrates and sugar increases the likelihood that you will be fatter than on a balanced diet of fats, carbohydrates, and proteins. The change in the American diet in the past 40 years is largely to blame for the increase in obesity in the general population even though lack of exercise and eating too much is also being wrongly blamed for more overweight fat humans in the population.


Your genetics largely determine whether you are born fat or will become fat later on in life. If you are unhappy with what nature gave you then your only way of losing weight is a starvation diet and staying on one being hungry all the time.

Stop being hard on yourself and feeling guilty about being fat because nature intended you to be fat and you should be proud of that fact of life and not fall for the being thin or “normal” weight propaganda which is prevalent in our obsessed low weight society. You are normally fat so love it.

Look at many of Rubens paintings and you will realize that historically being fat was beautiful and you should feel no shame for being overweight.

LIE: You will lose 5 to 10 pounds a week.

TRUTH: There are about 3500 calories in a pound of fat. It would take you one week to lose 1 pound of fat if you went on a starvation diet and ate nothing for a week because most of us can survive losing no weight on 500 calories a day. You can go on a dangerous month’s fast and eat nothing at all and you are only guaranteed to lose about 4 pounds of weight. The only way to lose a pound of weight in one day is to dehydrate your body and lose one pound of water in a day!!!!!!

LIE: You can treat yourself and eat anything you want in moderation and lose weight.

TRUTH: This misleads you into thinking that you won’t have to give up any of the eating pleasures in your life. It lies that you can eat the bad large calorie good tasting foods. Even if you ate half or one third the amount you frequently eat you will still not lose weight.

LIE: All you need to do is take a weight loss pill or a food supplement which suppresses your appetite.

TRUTH: If your appetite is suppressed and you go on a starvation diet you will lose some weight but in the long duration you will gain it all back.  Appetite suppression chemicals are dangerous to your metabolism if used for too long and when you get off them for health reasons you may even gain more weight than what you started out with because the body is expecting more starvation in the future and is adjusting by storing more fat cells. It also increases the chances that you will be starving on a diet of bad nutrition foods which you are used to eating and this will damage your health in the long duration.

LIE: A before and after picture is shown as proof that you will lose weight.

TRUTH: The humans in the pictures lost weight using a different weight reduction program which is not the easy one advertised.

CONCLUSION: There is no fast way to lose weight and not have any bad side effects on your health. Over 50% of humans were programmed genetically to be on the plump side sooner or later so even if you only eat about 500 calories a day you will still not lose weight.

You can lose weight under the supervision of a nutritionist who knows what they are doing and will be counting calories for you. You can lose weight slowly and surely by eating a healthy variety of food and being on a semi starvation diet until you reach your desired weight. Then you have to adjust or stabilize your calorie intake so you don’t gain it all back. The process requires an almost inhuman discipline to overcome hunger pangs and the temptation to eat something delicious and satisfying.

If you must lose weight because of bad health and a fear of imminent death then you may be motivated enough to seek nutritional professional help.  Someone will supervise your weight reduction program for a fee. Permanent weight reduction is possible but your diet will be different and the amount of food that you consume will be drastically reduced. Eating will probably no longer be a great pleasure in your life.

130022495846103515_glenn_family Myth: Most humans can lose weight with exercise or consuming less calories or eating low carbohydrate foods or eating a vegan diet or eating mostly protein or taking appetite suppressing pills or taking hormones.

Truth: Severely obese humans will lose some weight by limiting their caloric intake only. For the majority of us, without a starvation diet, we will basically remain at the same weight which we were genetically programmed to be at.  As we grow older many of us are programmed genetically to put on more weight as a natural reaction which anticipates less food in old age. Many store more calories in the form of fat for food emergencies or famines which modern society no longer has so most of us get fatter as we age because our caloric intake remains relatively constant. Less than 50% of the population does not gain weight even if they overeat because they have been genetically programmed to stay thin for an entire lifetime thanks to an efficient regulating natural metabolism. If you were born natuarally overweight be proud of your weight because if we do have a famine in the distant future you will be prepared with a fat reserve which will increase your odds of surviving it.

Many women in their thirties have a second or third offspring and suddenly start to gain weight without changing their lifestyles. This is only a genetically programmed natural reaction because more offspring in nature means that the same quantity of food will have to be shared because it historically meant less food for the wife, especially older females. That is why many women start putting on more weight after pregnancies so that they will have more energy stored up in their bodies in anticipation of having to share food with the offspring and having to eat less because of a historical constant supply of food.

In modern society more offspring does not mean less food for mothers yet they still put on more weight and put on more weight than usual since their caloric intake or the amount of food they eat remains the same and they don’t have to share their food with offspring.

For men this truth translates into not making nasty comments about the plumpness of your spouse and constant reminders that she should lose weight which is impossible without a starvation diet and constant hunger pangs. Live with your overweight spouse and respect the fact that she has no power to control her weight because this is how nature intended it to be. It will only result in yo yo diets and scientifically unproven methods to lose weight. In the short run your wife may lose some weight but in the long run she will gain it all back and maybe even add a few more pounds.

My father constantly complained about my mother’s overweight after I was born, the second offspring, and I seldom saw her eat more than a buttered piece of bread in old age and I know she was suffering from bad nutrition without enough variety of nutritious foods in her life. She got kidney cancer at about age 65 and lived five more years after the operation but I basically blame my father who lived to be 99 for sending my mother to an early grave with his lose weight terror tactics encouraged by mythological social brainwashing which caused her to eat badly and caused terminal illness in the long duration.

There are 3500 calories in a pound of fat. You lose about 100 calories by walking a mile and about 120 by running at about 6 miles per hour for thirty minutes. You would theoretically have to run 29 times for thirty minutes to lose one pound of fat or run for 15 hours to burn off one pound of fat. If you didn’t eat a daily caloric intake of about 1000 to 1500 calories eating three times a day this means that you should be losing about half a pound of fat a day. The truth is that no one automatically loses or burns half a pound of fat a day by exercising or not eating at all for a day.

My wife after her second pregnancy started gaining weight. We both can survive and not lose weight on about 500 calories a day each eating only one nutritious varied meal. I weigh about 175 pounds and she weighs about 212 pounds but was born to be overweight based on inaccurate social and medical norms which wrongly assume that every human should be at a perfect normal average weight for their age.

Eating 3500 calories less does not mean that you will lose a pound of fat. There is no one to one correspondence and it is a large myth maintained by the propaganda of the weight loss industry. Less food eaten does not automatically mean less weight for most of us.

Old calorie tables which recommend daily calorie intake are outdated and humans leading sedentary lives can eat less than 500 calories a day and not lose weight!!!!!! That means that most humans in developed countries are eating about three to four times more food than they need to survive at a constant weight. This means that Americans could feed about a billion more people with the food they should not be eating and if you take into consideration the fact that about 50% of grown food is thrown away by growers which doesn’t meet appearance perfection standards, America could support a billion and a half more humans with the food which is grown on a yearly basis. Believe it or Not!!!!!!

The biggest danger is taking an appetite suppression drug or taking one hormone pill to reduce weight. Taking an excess of one hormone to equalize the level of your hormone at an older age to be at a level it was during youth is unnatural and the hormone will not only not cause you to lose weight but it will start to ruin your natural metabolism and affect tens of other body chemicals. This puts your metabolism out of balance and causes long duration bad health problems and even susceptibility to cancer.

Appetite suppression pills frequently give you a sense of an unnatural emotional high and cause you to eat very little. Not only is the quantity of the food eaten reduced but so is the quality of the food eaten reduced with less nutritious variety included in what you do proceed to eat. The chemically induced delusion that you are losing weight causes long duration side effects and a damaged body metabolism if taken for a long time. As soon as you stop taking the appetite suppressant you gain whatever weight you lost back again and sometimes even gain more weight since your body tries to compensate for the period of time that you were living on fewer calories or less food eaten.

Read the side effects of most appetite suppression pills which are used for a very long time and at relatively large doses and it will frighten you. Using any drug pill to reduce weight permanently with daily doses will unbalance your metabolism given enough time and your good health will suffer.

Eating low fat processed foods with much carbohydrates and unnatural sugar quantities added will suppress your body satiation chemical and cause you to eat more of the low fat processed foods and you will wind up eating more calories which readily will be converted to fat, especially the sugar. Eat artificially sweetened poisonous food without calories and your long duration health will suffer from an unbalanced metabolism.

A vegan diet is frequently not successful because you eat too many calories with too much pasta, bread, french fries, dairy-free chocolate, and nuts and you end up gaining weight, not losing it. If you ate just fruits and vegetables in their natural state you may lose some weight but be deficient in vitamin B12 and other vital nutrients which you get from protein and fat foods. We are omnivores and that means that we should be eating a balanced diet of plant and animal carbohydrates and fats and proteins.

A lopsided artificial protein diet is not advisable because it can result in keytosis and liver damage and many other health problems because your body is not getting enough fats and carbohydrates to stay healthy.

Partial conclusions: Exercising for half an hour a day will not reduce your weight but may in fact cause you to be hungrier and overeat because you have lost body calories and your body will ask you to eat more and refill your body calorie storage space. It is a guarantee that you will eat more calories after exercising than you lost exercising.

Some humans are born with a tendency to gain weight and others are not. If you are gaining weight you are also probably eating too many processed foods with lopsided sugar amounts in them which will make your natural weight more if you were born to be naturally fatter.

Less than 50% of the population is gifted with good genes which can let you eat anything and any amount and not get overweight. Envying those humans and going on fad diets and not succeeding in weight reduction will only lead to greater depression and a sense of less selfworth.

Each generation of Americans is getting more overweight and the primary cause of it is eating too much processed highly refined sugary food which plagues grocery shelves. Once you gain weight it is not easy to decrease it but you can help the next generation of offspring to be thinner by making them eat a varied nutritious certified organic diet only when they are hungry and not force them to eat three times a day. If they are not hungry don’t force them to eat breakfast or lunch or even dinner. Keep them away from sugary foods and high carbohydrate unnatural foods such as sodas, sweets, desert, and processed snack foods. All of these unhealthy nutritionally bad foods can be treats once in a while or once a week but not every day of the week.

With age your metabolism naturally adjusts and makes many gain weight. Eating about one very varied meal once a day, especially unprocessed, varied, certified organic food will keep you healthily at your natural weight which may still be greater than you want it to be in your hopes and dreams. Learn to live with the new added weight because that is the fate of old age. You will be overweight but as healthy as you were naturally programmed to be!!!!!!
