Exercising and not eating is a very bad idea. You can lose weight very quickly by lowering calorie and carbohydrate intake whilst exercising. Starving yourself will only make you tired and weak. Getting into a routine of exercise and a diet that suits you will benefit in the long run. Belive me i have been there, starving doesnt work, changing the way you eat permanently with light exercise is the best way, and no obsessing, and punishing yourself if you fall off the wagon. If you don't eat your body will seem to subsist just fine for a brief period of time, until it starts to eat it's own energy, so, the person would not have enough energy to exercise. Exercise is suppose to tone muscles, but if you don't eat protein, etc., there is nothing you can do by exercise that will keep you healthy. Eat! Starving oneself is called Anorexia or Bulimia and they are serious diseases. It's wise for the person to seek out counseling to find out why they don't want to eat. One thing doctors do know, people with eating disorders do so because it's the one thing they can control if they can't control other things in their lives. Marcy

How many pounds will you lose in a week if you starve yourself and exercise?

If 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 you 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.
