Starvation Study


Saturday, August 14, 2010

So someone just was talking about this study, and I looked it up on wikipedia:

/Minnesota_Starvation_Expe
riment

I'm kind of creeped out.
Right now my calorie range on here is 1,200-1,550. The starvation diet used in the experiment was 1,560.

On one hand, it makes me worry that this isn't as healthy as it's made out to be.

On the other hand, I'm stuck wondering how anyone can be so starved by 1,560 calories that they cut off their fingers o.0

One the one hand, scary possible consequences of me eating this little.

On the other hand, it doesn't feel like a "starvation diet" to me at all.

    they had them eating over 3000 calories at first! i wonder how many gained weight during that phase? and the 1560 phase is a "semi-starvation" phase, which sounds about right. i mean, we'd be eating more than that if we weren't purposely restricting our food intake. i dunno. i'm not too worried about it. :)
