Every person is different, but I can tell you that starving yourself will not help you lose weight. Your body will actually start to hold onto weight after about 3 days of starving yourself and anything with fat that you put into your body will go straight for the fat reserves. Your body will think it is headed for hard times and that it will need all the fat it can take. So you would hurting your body more than anything, probably even gaining weight once you do decide to eat. Also, you could cause yourself a heart or brain problems from starving yourself. That is what happened to Terri Schiavo, her extreme dieting methods caused her brain damage. Be smart about weight loss, the simple method that works is to cut your calorie intake and start exercising. There is no easy way around it and especially if you want to lose weight and keep it off.
