Loss of muscle: Starvation mode is restricting calories so much (eating less all day or just 1x/day) that your body thinks the famine is coming. To protect itself and have enough energy for the day, it starts to break down muscle, not fat. Loss of muscle mass equates to more fat and a return of the weight. Weight loss is most effective when you lose only fat, not muscle. ...Read more

Been sick 6 days. couldnt eat much,maybe once a day. 500 kcal max. Now better. Did my body go into starvation mode in just 6 days?
Very Unlikely: Depends on baseline muscle mass. The more muscle you have, the more packaged sugar (glucose stored as glycogen) you can hold. Your liver alone has only ~3 days worth of glycogen/glucose. In "starvation mode" the liver breaks down muscle to make glucose, and fat is converted to ketones, the 2nd best source of brain energy. If you were able to keep down 50g carb/d (can ginger ale = 366g) you're ok. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Help please? What is the least amount of calories my body can survive on without going into starvation mode?
Been eating tiny bit or nothing for a little over a week. Has my body entered starvation mode if I have nausea for a couple days now?
Possibly: Initially a person uses up glycogen stores from the liver over 48 hours. The body then progresses to utilize protein from muscle and fatty acids. You are much better of resuming eating but concentrate on healthier foods and a healthier lifestyle. Your goal is to change your lifestyle for the better and not to do this type of a crash diet. ...Read more
