Although I do not support this way of dieting (well, if you keep it up, it becomes a way of life, really) but there is a way, perhaps even harder than starving in the first place. Say you starved for a week. You'll have to work to maintain the lost weight for just as long. Take the amount of calories you ate while starving, and add about 50 every day, or slow down if you see a weight increase. Personally, it took me half a year to go from obese to underweight this way and I'm still trying to maintain that weight loss through this method but I also went to gym everyday. But I do recommend everyone to eat healthy and exercise - that way is only a cliche because it works!! Hope I helped.

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.
