I've made the mistake of eating too little. I did the Weigh Down Workshop when I was 14. I lost about 50lbs. But I killed my metabolism. I was barely eating. The rule is "Eat when you're hungry, stop when you're satisfied, not full." It works well for some people, but I had no idea what I was doing. I thought I was hungry when my stomach growled. But now that I know my body better, and know that that is waaay past the point of actual hunger for me. I bet there were days when I was eating 500 calories.
Well, you can guess from that it didn't work out, because now I'm using Spark, doing it the right way.
I had fallen prey to the idea that weight loss pills will keep me from being hungry. That was until I started eating 6 mini meals a day.
