it would probably take a few weeks because when one starves themself they actually gain a few lbs cuz of the swelling of the stomache. if u want to lose a few lbs fast drink a liquid diet for a week, but make sure you get the vitamins you need via suppliment. warning.....this is only a temporary solution and will only work for the first few lbs. ALSO THIS IS MY OPINION AND MY OPINION ONLY I AM NOT A DOCTOR!!!!

How much weight will you loose in 4 days if you starve yourself?

You can loose weight faster by eating little amounts of food in moderation instead of starving your self. Starving yourself will cause the body to go into starvation mode and very slowly eat away at muscle not allowing you to loose weight fast just muscle. In about four days of starving yourself i would say up to about 5-6 pounds, If you eat once in the morning and once in the afternoon id say up to 8 pounds, the more smaller meals you eat through out the day the better chance you have at loosing weight

After 1 day, you would have 2 pounds. After 2 days, you would have 4 pounds. After 3 days, you would have 8 pounds. After 4 days, you would have 16 pounds. After 5 days, you would have 32 pounds. After 6 days, you would have 64 pounds. After 7 days, you would have 128 pounds. After 8 days, you would have 256 pounds. After 9 days, you would have 512 pounds. After 10 days, you would have 1.024 pounds. After 11 days, you would have 2.048 pounds. After 12 days, you would have 4.096 pounds. After 13 days, you would have 8.192 pounds. After 14 days, you would have 16.384 pounds. After 15 days, you would have 32.768 pounds. After 16 days, you would have 65.536 pounds. After 17 days, you would have 131.072 pounds.

If you would get the money exponentially (not double it on a certain point on the day, but just continuing to grow all day), then it would take you log(2,1.000.000)=19,931568... days. So the answer is 19,931 or 20 days.

How many days of starving does it take to lose 5 pounds?

If you want to lose weight, starving is NOT the way to do it.

The best way to lose weight is through various diets and getting plenty of exercise.

How much weight do you lose by starving yourself for a few days?

I'm sorry, but WikiAnswers is meant to be a place where questions are answered that are there to help or educate or assist a person. Suggesting a method of weight loss through encouraging anorexia (a potentially fatal and life-endangering disease) would not be helping, but would be promoting this dangerous life style. *** You can lose as much as one pound per day if you starve yourself. However, most of that will be muscle, which is smaller than fat, and you will gain it back as fat as soon as you stop starving yourself.

How much weight can you lose by starving yourself or limiting yourself to 500 calories a day for ten days?

Well, you should never starve yourself. Your body needs the foods nutrients. 500 calories a day won't make a difference. Normally people intake at least 1000 calories a day. For 10 days, you may lose about 5 pounds if you do the limiting calories. If you starve for 10 days, you can lose about 20 pounds. I suggest you do not do so. If you want to lose weight, you should excercise and not eat fatty foods. A great suggestion is to try to eat all fruit for a week. If you do that, the results should be pleasing.

Why is it that when you starve yourself for a while - a week or so - you only lose 3 to 5 pounds when you want to lose more?

There are thousands of calories in a pound, so even if you skip a whole weeks calories its difficult to lose too much weight.

If you wanna lose more weight, take the time to do diet and exercise and give yourself weeks, not days, to lose pounds.

If you starve yourself how much weight will you lose in 3 days?

from a doctor's piont of view. the first and second day you fast your body burn sugar. the third and any day after that is considered starving yourself. this why yes you will lose 2 pounds a day of pure fat. but this can also cause problems after the 7 day of no food. it can even mean death. i recomend fasting for three days at the most. this pratice will bring the muscle in the body closer together.also, when starving yourself you can gain wieght too maybe because your body gets used to not eating much and it keeps the same food in your body and then once you eat more it adds on to what you already have in your stomach

I a 240 and im 17 years old I am on my first day of starving myself what should I expect?

You wont notice any changes, starving yourself doesnt work, if anything you put on more weight. I have tried it before and after 2 days I felt ill, I weighed myself and hadnt lost any weight atall. You would be much better to eat healthily for a few weeks & excersise daily, that is when you will notice changes. Starving yourself is really stupid, you need food for vitamins, energy etc, it doesnt just contain fat !

How much weight will you loose 8 days by starving and also exersizing?

That would be a bad idea. You would be losing muscle from your body using it as food for energy to keep functioning, and you would be losing even more muscle because of the exercise. Don't forget, your heart would be one of those muscles. Working your heart harder as it is getting weaker would be a recipe for if starving yourself wouldn't be asking for death in the first place. Other organs would probably start failing along the way as well.

How do you lose weight in five days?

Without starving yourself or slacking on any nutritional value you really can't lose a significant amount of weight (sorry if you're tired of reading this same kind of answer).

Instead of dessert get a fruit .

You maybe would lose a little weight but as soon as you eat again your metabolism would kick in and you would start to gain the weight back and some more after that too .
