okay so i've weighed the same weight (about 125) since i hit puberty.. and up until last year i could eat anything i wanted and wouldn't gain weight. now i weigh 140 and can't control myself! i think im gaining weight because i stay home more now and don't get out as much to get some exercise. im not sure what to do now. ive heard that if you don't eat for a long period of time your stomach will shrink. i know its not healthy but i was thinking, if i let my stomach shrink to the point where i get fuller faster, and then start eating healthy could i lose weight that way? i don't know what else to do.. because nothing seems to keep me full for long. and PLEASE don't say to drink water. that's all i drink all day every day.. it doesn't fill me up. HELPPPPP!Answer Question

It may cause your stomach to shrink, but it also causes your body to go in to starvation mode due to it being deprived from needed calories. When that happens your body will slow down and store the calories you do consume once you eat, and you will gain the weight back just as quick as you lose it. Your metablism will slow down too, making you feel weak and tired. It also plays an important roll in weight loss. If you're concerned about over eating start eating things low in calories, fat, and sugar such as fruits and vegetables. You can't go wrong with them. I think this is more of a self discipline problem rather than a physical problem, and I think you would still struggle even if your stomach did shrink. There's such thing as good calories and bad calories too, so pay attention to what you're eating, it plays a big part in your weight.
