If you starve yourself but do weight exercises at the same time will you lose muscle mass?

Of course you will lose muscle mass if you don't eat enough protein and other foods to get those vitamins a body needs. Starving yourself could cause you to end up becoming Anorexic and even Bulimic and that's not a pretty picture. Anorexics especially can starve themselves or at least eat so little that their bodies begin to feed of itself and eventually this can cause organs to shut-down and heart attacks leading to death!
