3. You’ll have cognitive function impairment

During the process of ketosis and acidosis, the brain starts to break down your body’s protein. This happens because proteins release amino acids which can be converted into glucose. Due to this, you will lose much of the simple brain functions that help you remember things, and even carry out simple tasks.

4. Your body starts to cannibalize itself

If you’re not eating, then your body will start to eat itself. This is simply because it is searching for energy sources from anything. When the fat stores are gone, it will start to destroy muscle mass, and it won’t stop there, moving on to your bones if you continue to starve yourself.
