Why do people that starve themselves to loose weight end up gaining weight?

sometimes if someone wants to loose weight they dont eat....why do they end up gaining weight when they do that?

Weight is gained by people who try to starve themselves since the body rebels the mode of dietary. In other words, when one starves themselves, the body tends to retain weight in fear of starvation. Lastly, when the body gets a chance or a hold of food after starvation, it repays for the starved moments.

because your body adjusts to it so it like turns into normal for them but then when they start eating healthy and as much as a normal person does your body thinks its eating over but really its not make sense?

they skip breakfast, causing the body too store everything they eat for lunch, dinner, and the extra snack they had because they were hungry. also people starve themselves, instead of exercising wich burns calories better.

Because their body goes into starvation mode and starts to try to protect itself.

Example: ever notice that washing your hands usually brings on the urge to urinate? Your body senses water is available and no longer needs to retain what is stored.

Reducing consumption of food must be slowly - body will use to this way of eating. Every sharp change leads to opposite result
