How much weight can you lose by starving yourself for a month?
All of it. Starvation can lead to death, even though many other
people have survived going without food for 30 days. If you are
desperate to lose weight, start using your body. Go swimming as
often as you can, ride your bicycle everywhere, dig ditches, climb
hills, BURN CALORIES. Starving yourself can lead to permanent
damage to your nervous system, major organs, and teeth. If you
think that you will be more attractive if you lose a lot a of
weight, remember that you will be so weak that you cannot walk, sit
up, or carry out a conversation. And you are likely to end up in
the hospital, which is not cheap. People used to be thin because
they didn't eat every time they turned around, and they had to work
hard to survive. Try carrying a one gallon bucket of water 100
yards. Now, imagine doing that 20 or 30 times a day, every day.
Don't eat until you are stuffed, don't worry about cleaning your
plate, eat slowly, and when you feel full, stop. If you eat too
fast, your body does not have a chance to tell you that it is full
before you have overfilled it. Avoid sugary treats and colas, fast
food, and greasy chips. Peanut butter and jelly on whole wheat
bread is a pretty good meal, along with some low-salt corn tortilla
chips. Drink water with a meal, not milk, cola, or fruit juice.
