You lose weight as soon as you start starving youself. You can lose 20 pounds in a month, Ive done it. But don't try a starvation diet. It is unhealthy and dangerous. You could develop an eating disorder. If you want to lose weight safely, try cutting down on junk food and eating healthier foods like yogurt, fruit, and protein. And of course, get daily exercise. Exercise tip: Swimming is great exercise, along with runnnig and playing sports like soccer or football.

Does starving yourself help you lose weight?

Yes, in the short term but not in the long term. Starving yourself may actually make you put weight ON. If you deprive yourself of food - that your body needs to function properly - your metabolism will suffer. Your metabolism can sometimes control your weight, so suddenly eating properly one day then starving yourself the next will confuse it, and when you decide to start eating again, you will most probably gain unwanted weight. Starving yourself does NOT work, and the best way to lose weight is to exercise, eat meals with varied food groups and eat healthily. I also know it is best to eat little but often, instead of big and rarely.

Do you put on weight when you first starve yourself?

Weight can be gained indirectly by starving yourself. Starving yourself increases the likelihood of binge eating so weight may be gained that way.

It is sort of like a protection system to stop the body from being damaged when it cannot get the fuel it needs.

Every person is different, but I can tell you that starving yourself will not help you lose weight. Your body will actually start to hold onto weight after about 3 days of starving yourself and anything with fat that you put into your body will go straight for the fat reserves. Your body will think it is headed for hard times and that it will need all the fat it can take. So you would hurting your body more than anything, probably even gaining weight once you do decide to eat. Also, you could cause yourself a heart or brain problems from starving yourself. That is what happened to Terri Schiavo, her extreme dieting methods caused her brain damage. Be smart about weight loss, the simple method that works is to cut your calorie intake and start exercising. There is no easy way around it and especially if you want to lose weight and keep it off.

Starving yourself will result in diminished muscle mass. While you will certainly loose weight, once you start eating again, you will gain weight more rapidly than before and while eating much fewer calories. It can also create long term health problems, some that cannot be reversed. Starving yourself is not a good idea. It took you quite a bit of time to put the fat ON, the only way to loose the weight is much the same. Expect to take a little time and you'll be much more healthy.

How many kg can you lose in 10 days by starving yourself and doing 1 hour of exercise?

It depends on your metabolic rate. 1 pound = 3500 calories...starving yourself slows the metabolic rate and can make it harder to lose weight. Also, if you lose weight too quickly, you lose muscle. When you lose muscle, even when you begin to eat regularly again will cause your metabolic rate to slow as muscle burns more calories (even during resting) than fat.
