How much weight will you lose if you eat nothing and exercise for a week?
Worst thing you can do. Your body will think it's starving and survival mode will kick in and screw up (slow down) your metabolism. You will not feel good. Instead, try a Fast or body detox, plan with juices, or protein powders. Try the "Fast Track One Day Detox Diet". Search at Amazon or another book site for it. It's not really one day, you do a week prep, then the detox fast, then a three day recovery. You can exercise all you want. Except on the Fast Day, I believe. Check it out. Don't just Not Eat. Everyone knows it's just stupid and makes things worse. Your metabolism slows down and you lose weight slower. BTW...ephedra is legal again and works great as a appetite supressant. Check out some nutritional supplement websites and you'll see all kinds of stuff.

This is an ineffective way to lose weight, because you will not lose much fat, and you will put on fat more quickly when you restart your regular eating habits. If you want to… lose fat, stop eating carbohydrate dense, processed foods. If it's in a box, carton or packet it's often bad. Stick to lean proteins, fruits and veggies and exercise often. You simply cannot lose weight and maintain your weight loss in the long run without changing your eating habits altogether.When your body stops getting food it goes into a starvation mode and saves fat. The weight you will lose (not much) will be mostly water and muscle tissue. This is bad because not only will you have to start eating again, but since you now have less muscle, and therefore a slower metabolism than when you began fasting, you will gain even more fat on top of the fat that your body stored while you fasted. The only time your body will start burning noticeable amounts of fat is when it can no longer burn muscle proteins as a fuel source. However, this will only happen you're close to death.Rather than starve yourself, you will do far better to strictly limit or eliminate (apart from the occasional treat) refined (processed) carbohydrates. If you are unsure what refined (processed) carbohydrates are, see the related link for a list. If you couple this will frequent, cardio exercise, you should lose weight.I tried it. I must say I do not have an addictive personality or focus much on my body or looks. I did it in an attempt to try to understand what a friend of mine was going through. I started at 176lbs and the initial weight loss was quick, probably due to emptying my body of the waste over the first couple of days. I drank only water and tea with milk and one sugar. I did my normal work involving moderate exercise and lost 11lbs. Unexpected symptoms nearing the 7th day were: flickering vision and problems focusing my eyes, giddiness, and fatigue. Please note: Half the weight was back on within a couple of days. Losing weight fast is not a viable method for people who need to lose weight, and is definitely very dangerous to people who want to lose only a bit of weight.You may lose a little bit of weight by starving yourself for a week because you body will become so hungry that it will start to eat fat and muscle tissue. You will likely also feel weak, tired, irritable, and sick because you are not consuming necessary calories or vitamins. This will also make your metabolism slow down, which will hinder current and future weight loss plans. After your fasting period, you are likely to gain much of the weight you may have lost back.Actually, if you starve yourself for long enough your metabolism will go into "starvation mode" and slow down. This is why many recovering anorexics gain more weight back than they originally had before the eating disorder.If you're really going to do the drastic, scary weight loss strategy, eat a small amount every day, divided into four or five small snacks. An intake of a small portion of food every few hours throughout the day will speed up your metabolism, and you should still lose weight in a very small amount of time because of the substantial decrease in calories.The real reason why people gain weight after fasting (starving) is because they go straight to heavy foods that requires a lot of chemical reactions to take place at once to break it down and your stomach just isn't used to that after starving it for prolonged periods of time. When you do start to eat its best to start of with small foods like soup and smoothies. Don't eat big meals. You have to let your body get used to eating again and exercise, but not extreme amounts, is recommended to keep the weight off. From personal experience, I would not recommend not eating anything. I went from 235 - 205 in the last month by sticking to the following meal plan: I don't eat breakfast. I eat a small cup of chunk light tuna (3 oz or so) for lunch and drink plenty of water throughout the day. I hit the gym and do plenty of cardio exercise (cardio exercise the key to major weight loss because it burns lots of fat). For dinner I have perhaps a cup of soup, a small piece of chicken, or nothing. No, its not healthy at all, but not eating anything is not very smart and is incredibly difficult to do. I have not felt fatigued, nor have I had any health problems of which I am aware.I would like to add that I drastically cut down on calories for around 2 weeks for my birthday party. I lost a stone (14 pounds) in 2 weeks and I actually still ate, just very little. I started eating again (not quite normally, but around 1500 calories a day) and I haven't gained any of it back at all. I'm really happy with my weight now, and eat three healthy meals a day, just small amounts each meal.If you're going to give up food for a week, try going on the Lemonade Diet; by going on the Lemonade Diet, your body won't be starved and you'll cleans your system. You can lose up to 20 pounds if you stay on the diet for 10 days.
Moving the fat and flab that has been there for a while is very hard. You need to burn it off - ie exercise more than your daily calorie intake. Therefore if you are eating a …lot of yogurt and fruit, your calorie intake is still high and you are not burning off anything. You need to limit the amount of food to a healthy dosage. You also need to eat more than just fruit and yogurt to get the correct vitamins. Here a couple of tips: Make sure you are eating low-fat low-sugar yogurt. Eventhough fruit is healthy, it is also sweet which means sugar which turn into carbohydrates and fat. Limit yourself to no more than 4 pieces a day. Keep away from the very sweet fruits like pineapple and nectarines. Try to eat some vegetables in there too but stay away from potatoes as they have high carbs. Make sure you have greens to keep your iron levels up which will give you energy while exercising. Chicken without the skin will make you feel full but is not fattening and has no carbs. Tuna and grilled fish also help with this. Eat cooked egg whites (discard the yolk on every second egg you eat as this has a higher fat intake than you want). Boiled eggs make a great snack. You will lose the most weight in your second week of dieting. Remember the trick is to burn off MORE than you are eating.
You might loose a few pounds before you die of malnutrition.
The weight you lose will be mainly water and will soon come back when you begin to live again. It would be best to change your lifestyle to something including balanced,… portioned meals and at least 30 minutes of exercise a day.
There are 2 things:- Weight loss(losing body mass, they may include loss of fat, water and muscle from the body) and fat loss (just losing fat from the body). Since you …are talking about "healthy eating and exercise" i assume you are talking about fat loss. People say that losing 1 to 2 pound a week is can be done in a healthy and stable manner. More could possibly be done, but may be risky. Also, you need to burn 3500 calories to lose 1 pounds of fat from the body. So if yu aim at burning 7000 calories a week. You could lose about 2 pounds of body fat each week. This means aiming at about 1000 calories a day. Aiming at more than this could possibly slow down your body's metabolism.
You not only need to be eating "clean" or right, but you need to be cutting calories. Also, try exercising more. You need to burn 3,500 calories MORE than you consume to lose …1 solid pound of weight. Add in another 2 or 3 days of exercise, of a few daily walks or weight training to burn more calories to actually lose weight.
If you eat less than 1000 calories a day your body can actually gain weight because it is either affected by the change or the central nevus system senses that your getting we…aker and puts out the stored fat in your lower intestine. So the answer to that is you'll probably just gain more weight than before.
To lose a pound you need to burn 3500 calories if you want to burn a pound a week then just run off 500 calories per day
Most likely yes. Everything you eat has calories. Most people need around 2000 cals a day. If you eat more you will gain weight, if you eat less you will loose weight. It take…s 3500 cals to either gain one pound or loose one pound. Assuming an average person for an average week your body needs 14,000 cals. Therefore if you ate nothing but fruit and vegetables, as long as you did not exceed 10,500 you would loose one pound. This is different for every person but diet and exercise is the only sure fire way to loose weight. You just have to remember it takes as long to get off the pounds as it too for you to put them on. Neither will happen over night.
You may lose weight if you only eat small amounts, but you would be very unhealthy. The best way to lose weight is not to be lazy, and go exercise, and also have a very balanc…ed diet, making sure you get in as many food groups as you can, and using the sugar and fat group as least as you can.
To lose weight, you need to diet and exercise. The amount of weight you would lose would depend on many factors, such how how long / how instense you worked out, what types of… exercsie you do, the calories you ate, how much you slept, and so on.

How much calories should you as a woman eat if you are trying to lose weight and are exercising about 3 or 4 times a week?
You should probably consume the recommended amount of calories per day. Also, I'd recommend going for a daily jog just to keep in shape once you reach your anticipated weigh…t. To find the recommended number of calories, you need to calculate your basal metabolic rate (BMR), which depends on your age, height, and weight in addition to sex and level of activity. See the related link to calculate this, keeping in mind that it is just a rough estimate. You will have to play with the numbers a little bit to see what works for you. To lose weight, you should start by aiming for a couple hundred calories fewer than what your BMR is. If you find yourself getting very hungry on that number of calories, make sure you're eating adequate amounts of fiber, whole grains, and protein.
How much weight will you lose per week if you eat 1500 calories a day and exercise at least 11 hours a week?
It is impossible to say it. Your metabolic rate and the exercise you're doing and his intensity are needed values to find an estimate.
You'll probably lose weight by just eating popcorn for a week, but it will be mostly water weight and the weight you lost (and usually more) will come back on once you start e…ating normally. It's best to eat a varied diet with lots of lean meats, low-fat dairy, whole grains, fruits and vegetables.

Its not all about the exercise. You need to maintain a negative caloric balance which means watching what you eat too. Negative 3500 calories is equivalent to one pound of bod…y fat lost.
