So, having just updated my MFP diary, I get an ominous warning about not eating enough:
"Based on your total calories consumed for today, you are eating too few calories. Not only is it difficult to receive adequate nutrition at these calorie levels, but you could also be putting your body into starvation mode. Starvation mode lowers your metabolism and makes weight loss more difficult. We suggest increasing your calorie consumption to 1,200 calories per day minimum."
I had previously thought this starvation mode was a bit of a myth, and in actual fact it would take weeks of under nutrition to affect ones metabolism. But should I read any authority into this statement, or is MFP simply repeating the myth? And why would it be a 'bad thing'?
