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.

Can you lose weight in a month by starving yourself?

Yes. By starving yourself you will lose weight. Please give your body the respect it deserves. You breathe, your heart pumps, your kidneys filter your blood and your food is digested - and you don't even have to think about it! Your body is your best of all friends in this world. If you want to lose weight, be good to your body and go on a healthy diet. It will pay you back with good health. Crash diets and starvation harm your body and actually cause you to gain more weight when they are over due to survival instincts that begin when you are starving yourself. THis can have a harmful effect on your brain and body organs, you can faint, for the vanity of fitting into a dress or losing a few pounds you can end up in hospital, looking like a complete fool. So yes, you can lose weight by starving, but you can also lose a lot more. Please, take care of yourself. You are more important than what anyone else says or thinks.

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.

Does starving yourself help you lose weight?

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.
