Starving yourself will result in diminished muscle mass. While you will certainly loose weight, once you start eating again, you will gain weight more rapidly than before and while eating much fewer calories. It can also create long term health problems, some that cannot be reversed. Starving yourself is not a good idea. It took you quite a bit of time to put the fat ON, the only way to loose the weight is much the same. Expect to take a little time and you'll be much more healthy.

What will happen if you dont eat for a week?

The body can't survive too long without food or water. Starving yourself will only cause malnourishment, fatigue, dizziness, fainting spells, weakness and that's not even half of it. If you want to loose weight, starving yourself won't work. If you starve yourself for a week and then eat again, the body will hold onto that food, not knowing when it will get fed again and it will be even harder to burn that off.
