What is the Famine Reaction?

The Famine Reaction is your body's way of protecting you from losing too much weight. The Famine Reaction is activated whenever your weight drops below a certain threshold. It triggers the nagging hunger and cravings for fattening foods that you've no doubt experienced while trying to lose weight in the past. The Famine Reaction also causes dramatic reductions in your metabolic rate and contributes to plateaus and rapid rebound weight gain.
