Question
My friend is trying to lose weight and is seeking my advice in doing so. I told her that she should stop eating meals after 4PM and only consume liquids and fruit if she feels hungry. In passing, a doctor told her that after 10 hours of not eating anything, her body will go into Starvation Mode and any food that is eaten after those ten hours will be turned into fat. Basically the doctor said she would be getting fatter by not eating after 4PM. I old her this was wrong. Was I right? If not, what should I tell her? Thank you very much.  

Answer
Hey Brad,

Doc was right,
Forget about
the way she looks for a minute we will get back to that. Your body has 1
goal; SURVIVAL. It's jobs is to protect the brain to continue thought,
so it can function. It does not care how you look, honestly it would
rather be sedentary and obese. Why? because it requires less effort to
maintain.

Now let's take her for example, let's say she needs about 1600-1990
calories per day( hypothetical) depending on your activity level. That
is just to
function optimally, wake up go to the bathroom ,go through the day and
on and
on till sleep time and the energy it requires to keep you breathing at
night( because you still burn calories while sleeping,maybe not as many
as you do during exercise, but blood circulation and breathing burns it
up). So what happens when you cut calories out? well initially you lose
weight, but then your body adapts to that and says" hey I'll learn to
live off this amount of food". So what does someone do? they cut
calories again, so you lose a little more and your body does it again
but
faster, and then on top of that it figures "if you keep cutting your
calories I will have to store some of it as FAT for later, in case I
run out
of energy because you decided that you were on "a diet". So now someone
is eating very little
and exercising a lot and not getting results, why cause your body does
not care what you want to look like if you don' t take care of it's
needs first. Plus if you get lean and have some muscle that requires
more
energy (food) to maintain , even at rest. You see the way your look on
the outside is just a print out of what you are doing on the inside.

So what should you eat very simple,go to one of
my webpages www.Results4Sure.com, go to the contact us page fill in the
blanks and in the comments box type in free e-book, I will send you a
free copy of "the Body Fat Removal System" e-book, it will have all the
info you need.


hope that helps
