Mine was due to the chemo and radiation treatment making it impossible for me to eat or drink food. Now I don't advise anyone to lose weight in this manor . As an avid reader of apocalyptic fiction this was an eye opener to how starvation affect the body and mind.
We all as preppers try to have food laid back so we wont starve. Take it from me STOCK MORE in different places!!!! Starvation is no fun . The first week it is all you think about . the second is just a acke in your belly . by the 3rd week that diminishes and you begin to get real weak in week 4. From then on your a walking zombie and have no strength to do anything.
I went about 6 weeks without eating 5000 calories before I had to go on IV TPN . I lost almost 60 lbs. in under 45 days. That's about a pound and 1/4 a day and I wasn't doing any work. Now the purpose of this post isn't about what I went through it is unless your sick plan to avoid starvation.
Today I ate 4 spoons of mashed potatoes to most of you that is a nothing . To me it is a milestone . I haven't had any thing solid since the first of march.
