The reason you gain when reaching your goal weight when you eat enough calories to maintain (BMR), is because your body is starved and doesn't ideally want to stay at this low weight so when you eat more than you normally would when losing weight your body stores everything it can get to make you survive longer. This is sadly how it works.
🥀 In the past I have asked people what would happen if I stopped eating. They told me that I would only get fatter. I am 80kg (176 lbs) at the moment and I have never tried starving myself. I have never liked the way I look and I have recently had some trouble with self-harm. Do you think I would lose weight if I began starving myself?
I’m going to explain what happens inside the body when we do this to ourselves:
Initially, when we starve ourselves, we lose water weight. After the third day, your body will start to eat at its own fat and muscle. This isn’t just the fat and muscle that you would like to lose. It will eat at anything to continue to do its daily functions, including eating away at your organs if it needs to. Everything slows down in your body. In terms of your body’s gastrointestinal functions, you will lose the ability to have bowel movements. You will lose your ability to have a period and eventually have children. You will lose your hair and your nails will become brittle and as your body gets colder and colder it will grow a type of hair called lanugo in an attempt to keep you warm. Your brain won’t be able to function to its full ability, making it harder to concentrate and do even the simplest of things at times. Once you do finally begin to eat again, you usually end up gaining the weight back. Your body doesn’t know when it will receive food again so it stores it in an attempt to keep you alive. This is why many anorexics often purge some of their meals, especially after they fast is to avoid gaining weight. So to answer your question honestly, your body will initially lose weight if you do that, but as soon as you eat again you run the risk of gaining it all back. It is not not worth it. Please seek help if you are struggling with an ED. This is not something I will ever encourage or promote. I may struggle with one, but it is fucking hell and I hate it so much. Also, I hope you will no longer harm yourself beautiful💖 I used to cut and it got so bad at one point I went to the hospital and needed 88 stitches in one leg. And you are beautiful at 176 pounds. You don’t need to lose a pound.
