From your question, I imagine that the purpose of you, starving yourself is to lose weight. If your goal is to lose weight, you are doing more harm than good. Yes, you will loose weight from starvation, but your body will go into self preservation mode, and sooner or later, you will begin to eat again. Your body will now "store" almost everything you eat, and you will soon gain back all the weight that you lost plus more. You will do better by eating many small meals throughout the day. Eat all of the fruit or vegetable that you like. Walk about half a mile a day until you can walk or run more. Lift weight every other day. Without knowing it you are extremely foolish and could end up Anorexic or Bulimic! Don't roll those eyes because there are more and more young women out there with this problem. It starts out where the young woman feels she's fat and hates the look of her body imagine. To many others she may be the perfect weight and very attractive, but she sees herself as over-weight. From the young to the elderly (in nursing homes) one thing EVERYONE can control is if they decide to eat and get very fat, or decide not to eat and get thin. By starving your body it will start to feed off itself. The above poster is correct in saying you should eat a well balanced diet, exercise (and drink 8 - 8 ounce glasses of water because it flushes fat and toxins out of the body.) Do it the smart way and get help from "Weight Watchers" which teaches you the tools to eat healthy and be the weight you should be for your height and body structure. Good luck hon
