How to eat after starvation so i wouldn't start storing fat?

First of all, i am not starving on purpose, i just don't have any money.Yesterday i had 3 eggs, some coconut fat, 2 cucumbers and a grapefruit. Today i had 2 eggs with some pineapple slices in coconut milk. So i have a few fays to go and now i have onyl coconut milk and fat and blueberries in the fridge. I dont know if ketosis is possible with this food, but since i am in this situation, i have nothing against losing weight-i walk alot and drink green tea...so my question would be- How should i start eating when this amazing amount of money comes-should i try to be in ketosis or just do a normal paleo meal plan, should i eat less for some time? Because although i feel i am losing fat, i am losing muscles aswell.Could intensive training with normal eating be the answer.?

I would try to minimize the starvation and maintain as much muscle mass as I could. Eggs, butter, and rice would probably be the way I would go, but I haven’t paid attention to prices in a while. (Disclaimer – butter and rice are not strictly Paleo). Definitely exercise once you start eating normally – it helps dieters maintain their weight after they end their diet.

How many days is a few? Starvation adaptations don't even kick in until 60-72 hours of hypocaloric intake, so if it's not more than 3-4 days until the money comes in, you should be able to refeed as normal.

Get yourself to a food bank, woman! No need to starve in the land of plenty.

In the meantime, move slowly (e.g. walk) and keep well-hydrated. Eggs are a good post-fast meal, if you can tolerate them.

BTW, sure your calorie load is low but really not all that bad if your only putting up with it for 1 week or so which seems to be the case. I wouldn't call this "starvation". If you mean the adaptive response of your body and coming out of it just eat normal paleo until 2/3 full. Your stomach may have shrunk some so dont go too glutenous all at once.

Check with the grocery store manager and tell him your situation and ask if he has anything to spare from the produce area or meat area. I buy discounted meats all the time that have a bit of age on them.

Eat real, whole healthy food. Avoid toxins and just move.

I'd be cautious with intensive training as it can be catabolic.

How long have you been starving? The key issue to my mind is maintaining your muscle mass. Getting enough protein is of highest importance. Obviously, a high fat, low carbohydrate approach will keep the fat stores low, but if you are actually starving for a long time you should basically forget about that and just eat. The longer you starve, especially if you are noticing muscle wasting, the more important nutrition and calories become vital to heal. EAT A LOT! You probably are making ketones even with the fruit- and blueberries are nutritious, so eat them!
