If you are 12 years old and 120 pounds how long would you have to starve yourself to lose 15 pounds?
It takes longer to lose weight if you weight uder 130lbs. you would probably have to starve yourself for more than a week to lose 15lbs. I found out myself and you won't feel healthy. You will still lose weight if you eat low calorie foods you can look them up on google.

It has been proven that you can lose nearly as much weight eating sensibly as starving yourself. In fact, when you starve yourself, your body wastes away and so it looks terrible without clothes on. On the other hand, when you eat sensibly, cutting out fat (oil, butter, margarine, sauces, etc), your… body answers the call and looks better too. Eat more fruit and less cake. Eat more chicken and less beef. Eat more salad and less beans. Pasta is good, without the butter. Eat about 1200 calories a day minimum. Don't forget to exercise. The more active you are, the faster you will burn the food you eat. If you're a girl, go to the oval and walk. Start slowly if you're not used to it. In about a month, you will lose 12-15 pounds with such a healthy regimen. One more warning: starving is dangerous to your system. Anorexia is a real disease. It would probably be easier on you and your body to cut out carbs than starve yourself. Its really easy and in 8 weeks i lost 30 pounds. So just eat like eggs for breakfast, you could skip lunch or just eat some bacon or something and eat steak or something with a vegetable for dinner. I promise you will lose weight and you won't be hurting yourself as badly. when your ready to eat normally again just slowly go into it and watch calories and fat. no do NOT cut out carbs. if you're trying to lose weight carbs should be about a third of your diet (you need them for energy) and lots of protein. do lots of cardio work and lift light weights with lots of reps I've been there, done that. It takes about a week on amphetimines. I ended up in a hospital room-heart attack. I'm only 22. (MORE)
There are approximately 3500 Calories in a pound. How many pounds you lose by starving yourself depends on your basal metabolic rate, or BMR (how many Calories you burn while at rest) and how many calories you burn through activity. Most people's BMR is somewhere in the neighborhood of 1500 Calories…. Add in daily activity and you get your 2000 Calorie-based diet recommended by the USDA, FDA etc. Therefore, it will take most people about 2 days of not eating to lose one pound. Skipping a single meal won't do much for you if weightloss is the ultimate goal. Skipping meals lowers blood sugar and reduces metabolism, which will actually slow down the entire process. In addition, the weight you loose will not all be from fat, but also muscle tissue, skin, blood and even bone matter. This is because of the fact that as your body can't receive the essential nutrients it needs to survive from food, it will extract them wherever it can find them. So be sure to eat! Your body needs protein, starch, fat, calcium, folic acid, vitamins, minerals and much more simply to sustain life. As any one of these becomes depleted from your diet, your body looses some of its functions and, depending on the level of deprivation, you can even die. This is why it is very important to have a balanced, consistant diet with fruits and vegetables. (MORE)

Answer . \nIf you starve yourself and exercise for a week, you could probably lose anywhere from 5 to 10 lbs. But, that will mostly be water weight and not the weight from fat that you are hoping to lose. When you starve yourself, your body goes in "starvation mode," meaning that everything yo…u eat is stored directly as fat because the body conserves as much energy as possible to keep you alive because it thinks you are starving to death. Therefore, it would take you longer to lose that ten pounds of by fasting rather than eating healthy and exercising. (MORE)

\n. \n Please don't starve yourself \n. \n. \noh honey don't do that. That is unsafe and unhealthy. And when you starve yourself your body actually shuts down to protect itself. Your motabalizim slows down to concerve energy. Now eventually it will use up the fat supply then will start usin…g muscle and vital organ. When you do start eating again. Your body will then hold onto every bit of fat and calorie you eat, prepareing itself for another possible starvation. Your best bet. eat 5 small meals, fruits and veggies lots of water.

Don't starve yourself! Here's a tip, eat slowly... How? Eat all of your food with chopsticks. Budget your food so that you can only finish after fifteen minutes from the time you started your meal. Eat only three times a day, with the food amounting only to two cups per meal. If you're hungry, and i…t's not yet time to eat, drink protein or fruit shakes, make it at home, and don't put bags of sugar, put only three in one glass. Or better yet, substitute sugar with honey, so that you can have no limits. One more thing, one glass of water before you eat, drink it slowly. Drink water after four bites of food while you're eating. It's more advisable to substitute water with fruit juices, just make it yourself, don't add sugar, just honey. That's that.. And if you ask, I'm not a doctor, thank you very much... You might lose all that weight for about three weeks or so, less if you exercise. But to be honest, I don't like to exercise. All I can say is that I think you don't need to lose the pounds, what is your height? I'm just fifteen, and I'm from the Philippines... (MORE)

You do not starve yourself. That would be foolish. You eat a balanced diet and exercise regularly.
The same amount of time it would take anyone else. Using a rough calculation a pound is equal to 3,500 calories. So you would need to burn 70,000 calories. Assuming you naturally burn 2,000 calories a day, and also assuming you need to take in 1,200 calories a day minimum to stay healthy, I'd say it… will take you 87.5 days to burn that off. Assuming you run a deficit of 800 calories a day. Really isn't that hard, do it if you want to, don't do it if you don't want to. (MORE)
Answer . ahah i think you'd die way before then. Answer . If you eat nothing at all for more than a few weeks you will die. However, if you want a mathematical answer, 90 pounds of fat is equal to about 315,000 calories. If you eat 1000 calories fewer than your metabolic needs (which are goin…g to get lower and lower as your metabolism slows), you could lose the 90 pounds in about a year. This is not adjusting for muscle loss of course, as you will most likely lose muscle in the process as well. The more protein you provide yourself and the more you weight lift the less muscle you will lose. However, if you "starve" yourself you are inviting a host of nutritional deficiencies. I'd recommend eating liver every other day if you're seriously considering a "starvation" approach. (MORE)
If you are a 186 pound 12-year-old and want to weigh 120 pounds how do you get there and how long will it take?
It really depends on what your weight mostly consists of. Like if it mostly consists of muscle or mostly consists of fat. DO NOT try to starve yourself to loose weight because it will just lower your motabolism. Low Calorie diets DO NOT work. If you eat less calories a day then your body will burn l…ess calories a day. The best way to loose weight right now is to, eat right. Meaning getting enough fruits and vegetables throughout the day. And eat these foods at the same time each day. Not EXACTLY the same time but you knoe what I mean. And eat atleast four meals consisting of healthy food each day. No it wont make you gain more weight it will balance out your diet, you just need to get about 20 min of exercis in each day, like walking or jogging on a treadmill.. Remember; FOOD IS NOT THE ENEMY!

The only way that much weight can be lost in such a brief time is through dehydration, i.e. a reduction of water in the body. Dehydration can cause serious chemical imbalances in the body and may require medical treatment. Rather than aim for quick weight loss, which usually results in the lost w…eight returning, and often more weight than you lost, try to lose it over a longer period of time. You could then do such things as regular cardio exercise, improving your eating habits, and perhaps try crunches and walking up and down stairs extra times. (MORE)

Starving yourself really isn't a sensible option. It'll be uncomfortable, unhealthy and not particularly effective. Going on a real strict diet will cause your body to slow right down, making it even harder to lose weight. On top of that, going on a crash diet makes it real easy to put the pounds ri…ght back on when you return to sensible eating habits. You're better off aiming for a healthier and less strict diet, which together with some exercise will let you lose 1-3 lbs/week. Cut down on sodas, snacks and everything deep fried, and you can lose those pounds in a healthy manner in 3-4 weeks. (MORE)

No, it wouldn't be healthy. The most you are supposed to lose in 2 weeks is about 5 pounds, give or take a couple. When I first started doing weight watchers, I was hungry all the time for the first week, and I only lost 2.5 pounds (the 2nd week I was not as hungry, and I lost the same). It also d…epends on your body and what you are doing for exercise. I exercise a lot and the 3rd week I did weight watchers, I gained 2 pounds, and then the 4th week I lost them again. Sometimes weight will fluctuate like that when you diet & exercise, so it's not going to just come off the way that you want it to. My goal is also to lose 15 pounds...I've been doing weight watchers and exercising regularly for about 6 weeks, and I've lost 7.5 pounds total. Having a weight loss goal is great, but make sure to give yourself a realistic timeline or you might give up too quickly. (MORE)
