You may think that the best way to lose weight is to simply eat less... then why not just jump right to skipping meals? Turns out, this is actually not going to help you lose weight because your body will not respond in a constructive way (no one functions well when they are hangry, and the body tries its best the keep things going when incoming calories are running in shortage by shutting down 'unnecessary' systems like skin, etc.).
