Starving to lose weight is very dangerous. A person can lose weight rapidly, but it comes with a great health toll and can be fatal. It is also a sign of the eating disorder anorexia. Doing so, the weight is often regained very qickly once normal eating is restored. The best and proper way to lose weight would be with moderate diet and exercise.

No. Starving yourself to lose weight is not safe, nor is it effective in the long term,for weight loss.


Starving yourself for a week will make you lose very little weight. Starving yourself just restricts you from getting the valuable nutrients that you need, and is not good for you at all. Do not starve yourself.


You will not lose enough weight to notice by starving yourself for one day.



Starving yourself for one week is not a good way to lose weight. Starving yourself causes your body to go into starvation mode. During this time your body will store fat and you will not lose weight.


Starving yourself is never a good way to lose weight. It is very dangerous and can be deadly. Some people can lose considerable amounts of weight by starving, but it also really hurts the body.


Short term, yes. Long term you loose muscle and it harms the body. You can die.


Nobody can know that for sure. In addition, we do not know your present weight. However, why would you choose to lose weight by staving yourself for 26 days. It is not a healthy or comfortable way to lose weight.


Starving yourself is never the way to go to lose weight. It can lead to serious problems like eating disorders. The best way to lose weight is to watch your food proportions, eat healthy, and exercise.


Starving yourself to lose weight is never a good idea. That is a sign of the dangerous and potentially deadly eating disorder known as anorexia nervosa. Starving will also lead to almost-immediate weight gain as soon as you return to normal eating again. Instead, proper dieting and exercise is always the best way to lose weight and to keep the weight off.


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.


If you want to lose weight, starving is NOT the way to do it. By all means, cut down on the number of fatty and sugary foods you are eating, but starving yourself will only harm your body and will not have any lasting effect on your weight. The best way to lose weight is through various diets and getting plenty of exercise.


None. Starving yourself is the worst possible way to lose weight, and can lead to eating disorders. If anything, in order to lose weight you need to eat more and exerciseproperly.


You only have to starve once and you won't care about weight any more.


Starving yourself is called anorexia. Anorexia can lead to serious medical problems including but not limited to death. If you need to lose weight try eating balanced meals and exercising.


Of course you can! Low carb dieting is the fastest way to lose weight without starving yourself.

Each body and person is different, as is how long it would take to lose 60 pounds by starving yourself. However, this should never be used as a weight loss method. It is unhealthy, and diet and exercise are much better options.


You go into starvation mode and your body conserves your energy reserves (this is why you do not lose weight in the short term by starving yourself). Ultimately you starve to death.


A proven method for weight loss is to accept the fact that you won't lose any weight by starving yourself. As long as you are eating healthy, you should realize that everyone has a different body type, and not everyone can be as skinny as a toothpick.


starving yourself does not work ladies! It may make you actually gain weight in fact and not only that it just makes you stay the same! When I decided to lose weight I was like 'ok some days i'm gonna starve myself thinking it was ok because models do it and that's what i wanted to look like so then a nutritionist told me that starving yourself is truly horrible! not only will you not lose weight but your getting a ton of other health problems that comes with..


Cocaine suppresses the appetite, you don't get hungry taking it therefore eat less. You are as good as starving yourself.


The poor child is acting out because she is starving for attention. The goal of several charities is to feed starving people around the world. My teenager is usually starving by lunch time and he eats at least three sandwiches. I know you want to lose weight, but starving yourself is not the way to do it.
