We have all been there. I was over weight and I starved myself. But i would not recomend it! Yes you do lose weight eating nothing. But you dont know hunger pains until you don't eat. Not eating for me is so terrible, i felt like i was going to faint all day. You don't want that. When I starved myself I lost 3 kg in one week, which is UNHEALTHY. You lose weight all through your body. A GOOD DIET -------- "banana diet" Week one: - have nothing but bananna milkshakes! take a multi vitamin tablet too (have as many as you want) Week two: - have stew or meaty vegetable soup for tea and banana milkshakes for breakfast and lunch Week three: have stew or meaty vegetable soup twice a day and banana milkshake for breakfast. Week four and then on: eat five small meals instead of thee big ones. I done this diet (my own invention!) and I lost 10 kg in four weeks. All you need is bananas, low fat milk, meaty vege stew or soup, and multi vitamins! DO NOT STARVE If you starve yourself you will eventually lose both weight and inches but there are risks associated with starving yourself. The chemistry of the body changes during starvation and you place your body under a lot of stress and in some cases, danger. For example, if you go on long periods of not eating or eating only a few hundred calories a day, you can lose weight in your heart muscle. This can cause a heart attack and you can die from it. If you stop eating for a day or two, you won't lose this kind of weight. However, it is better to restrict your calories and eat everyday to lose weight, than to starve yourself and put your body at risk for harm.
