|Take in Enough Calories; Drastic Calorie Deficits Cause the Body to Hoard Fat|
The body has a delicately balanced "caveman" survival instinct. Drastic calorie deficits (or even skipping meals) can stimulate the quantity and activity of the enzyme lipoprotein lipase, which collects digested fat from your blood stream and stuffs it into fat cells.
General Guide: Men avoid dipping below 1600 to 2000 calories a day and women below 1100 to 1600. Note: Additional factors to consider are activity level, current body weight and carbohydrate intolerance. Your body is better off if you do not activate or stimulate that pesky little fat storage enzyme.
