Starving yourself is not a healthy way to lose weight. Your body needs fuel to function properly. A sensible diet combined with a reasonable exercise program is the healthiest and most effective way to lose weight. Sugar MUST be present in the blood stream (glucose) to effectively burn fat. Starving causes the body to go into "fat shock" which makes the body covet fat and burn lean muscle mass. A diet of 1000 clean calories (combined fat, carbohydrate, protein) and a good work out (aerobic) will be the proper way to lose weight. The "conscientious caloric intake" method combined with exercise is the way to get fit, trim and healthy. DO NOT starve the body. You will do permanent damage.

Starving causes the body to hold on to any and all calories that you subsequently take in after your starving binge. It is as detrimental as gorging on food! It's better to reduce your eating and increase your activities. You can lose weight quickly but this IS the WORST way to lose weight. As soon as you start eating again, your body will begin to store that food as fat for the next shock treatment (starvation period). It's self-preservation. Proper diet and exercise would be much more effective in the long run. Eat plenty of fruits, veggies and meats like Turkey for more success. Even if you're just eating a turkey salad once a day, with increased water, it would be more effective than starving your body. It needs nutrition to reduce your weight and keep it off.

It is true that if you starve yourself you will lose weight. however, you will lose weight off your most attractive body parts, such as your boobs and bum. Fat will stay around your mid section unless you do cardio, and your legs and arms won't change at all.

You do not starve yourself. That would be foolish. You eat a balanced diet and exercise regularly.

It takes longer to lose weight if you weight uder 130lbs. you would probably have to starve yourself for more than a week to lose 15lbs. I found out myself and you won't feel healthy. You will still lose weight if you eat low calorie foods you can look them up on google.

If you literally starve yourself, you could have long term health affects, it is not a good way to lose weight. A reasonable diet should help you lose 8 to ten pounds the first month, slowing down at that point. Consult a physician for help in determining what the best option for you is.

Many people starve themselves indeed because they want to lose weight, but infact, this does not help at all. Wehn you don't eat, your body thinks it is starving and produces fat. So the best way to lose weight is to eat healthily, not starve yourself!

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.

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.
