this is so unhealthy. very harmful train of thought "You can't think about losing weight while you're eating three meals a day." not only that but it's also untrue. the issue is so many people want to lose weight more quickly than is healthy, want to lose more weight than is healthy, etc.. it is true that some people really struggle to lose weight because of very specific factors (medication, conditions, etc.) but it isn't the majority. it's just that healthy weight loss can take sticking to healthy habits for a decent amount of time before you even really see a difference. you just have to keep going. but starving yourself... when people do this, not only does it hurt their body (incl energy levels) but also you increase the risk of yoyo-ing and gaining the weight back.

"You can't think about losing weight while you're eating three meals a day. That's just unrealistic."

And yet, a lot of people do exactly that. They manage to lose weight despite eating three meals a day, or even more. Crazy to think that starvation is an essential part of losing weight.
