Best Answer

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.

Do you put on weight when you first starve yourself?

Weight can be gained indirectly by starving yourself. Starving yourself increases the likelihood of binge eating so weight may be gained that way. The body also begins to regulate itself so that it loses weight more slowly and gains weight faster when you starve yourself. It is sort of like a protection system to stop the body from being damaged when it cannot get the fuel it needs.


Does drinking water in a certain period of time effect our weight?

Certainly. A liter of water weighs 2.2 pounds, so weighing yourself before and after chugging a liter will (temporarily) increase your weight.


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.
