If you ate more before switching to this, you'd probably loose a bit. Then your body would get used to it and adjust to that lifestyle. Which basically means you'd loose weight, then you wouldn't loose more after that. Hey, Just wanted to contribute my own personal experience with this one. This is EXACTLY what I've been doing for about 7-8 months now. It started out nonintentional..I started back to school and had 8 hour classes that we weren't allowed to bring any kind of food or snacks. I got so used to eatting when I got home, that it turned into eatting only one time a day. I am 22 years old, 5'6 and I weighed 132 lbs. Currently (7-8 months later) I weigh 118 lbs. But it fluctuates. I hate that I've done this to myself....don't get me wrong, I love wearing a size 4 instead of a size 8, but now, whenever I eat more than one meal a day, I gain like 2-3 lbs. in ONE day! Your body adjusts to what you've done to it, and, in a way, your body punishes you. I know that if I started eatting normal....ya know, 3 meals a day with snacks in between, I'd probably blow up like a blimp....simply because I have shot and killed my metabolism. So....can't really stop you from making this decision, but just letting you know that the end result...the very end result, is not one to be desired!

Is starving yourself good or bad and in what why are they good or bad?

Bad. By eating, yes, your body does indeed store fat, but when you don't eat, your body thinks it is in danger of starvation and when you do eat, your body holds dear to every single little piece of energy it can get a hold of. This will make you grow "larger." It will store the fat. Really, if you want to lose weight, eat and exercise. Starving yourself will make your body dysfunctional. Eat up!


How do you starve yourself?

starving yourself in any way or form is when you do not allow your body to eat what it has to in order to survive normally. it is when you are ignoring your body's cry for food. starving isnt always bad, like you might starve yourself when you are hungry and cant get to food until an hour later, like if you are in school and you are hungry 4th period and lunch is next, but during the lunch you eat correctly, that is fine. starving becomes a bad and serious thing when you are so focused on losing weight and the way you look. you can tell when your hair thins out and your body becomes drastically thinner within weeks of starving yourself. it is when you eat less than the amount of calories you need for yourself on a daily basis. your nails are going to become brittle and your face will turn pale and yellow toned. you will know you are starved wether it is for an hour or week if you get really tired and cant concentrate. this doesnt change if you are starving yourself through an hour or to the point where you are anorexic, when you dont eat when you are hungry. and throwing up food (bulimic) and other such eating disorders are considered starving yourself. whether you eat the right foods and then throw it up, or dont eat them at all, it is considered the same thing.
