Answer . Unfortunately, after the first day or two there would be very little fat loss. Your body tends to go into "famine" mode, protecting itself. Your metabolism starts …to slow and you start living off your muscle mass rather than the fat stored around your body. At the end of the 5 days you will end up with a little less fat and less muscle mass. When you start eating again you will end up putting the weight back on PLUS a bunch more.That kind of dieting doesn't work.Cut back on the fats, sugars and starches in your diet, make sure you get enough protein an exercise as much as you can. Working up a sweat FROM EXERCISE for a couple hours a day will help more than anything else you can do... provided that you aren't eating too much while you do it.. Answer . starving yourself will only make you even more hungry on that fifth day because depriving yourself is going to make you over indulge on food when you do it. Why don't you try to eat half portions of your regular meals and do some work outs like two to three times a day and you should lose alot fast.
You probably won't have much success in losing weight quickly by starving yourself. Your body goes into what is a starvation mode, and holds on to all the nutrients in the fat… that you have burning it slowly- so it will take time and probably be painful. As you may have seen in on tv, people in other contries and thin and frail and that's because they starve, due to lack of food. You can lose weight, that is true. But you could also kill yourself- or cause severe health problems. Cutting down on portions and eating healthier food is a much better approach. in stead of eating go for a walk or some type of exercise
Answer . It depends entirely on your metabolism and current weight.\n. \nBut if you care for your body so little that you risk damaging it, then it's not really a questio…n worth answering. Maybe you should work on self-acceptance instead.
Answer . If you literally starve yourself, you could have long term health affects, it is not a good way to lose weight. A reasonable diet should help you lose 8 to ten p…ounds the first month, slowing down at that point. Consult a physician for help in determining what the best option for you is.
NEVER CONSIDER STARVING YOURSELF! Consider eating cabbage.I eat cabbage as a snack because I find it delicious!! and i have a flat stomach and abbs.
Starving yourself for ten days will not accomplish any major weight loss . As soon as you begin to eat again, even slowly with small portions, the weight will come back immed…iately as your body struggles to restore its shape to the pre-traumatic starvation levels. Starving yourself will not allow your body to get the nutrients it needs for proper growth and operation. Please, see your physician for a safe and appropriate weight-loss plan that matches your body type. It is safe, he/she won't ask questions to embarrass you, and you will leave happy and healthy..

from a doctor's piont of view. the first and second day you fast your body burn sugar. the third and any day after that is considered starving yourself. this why yes you will …lose 2 pounds a day of pure fat. but this can also cause problems after the 7 day of no food. it can even mean death. i recomend fasting for three days at the most. this pratice will bring the muscle in the body closer together. . also, when starving yourself you can gain wieght too maybe because your body gets used to not eating much and it keeps the same food in your body and then once you eat more it adds on to what you already have in your stomach
Not much, if anything at all. Your body still stores food from the past few days and meals in the liver, and food can take a day or two to even be digested and go out of your …system. Also, starving is not a good method of weight loss . It can cause many health side effects and is dangerous.
I'm sorry, but WikiAnswers is meant to be a place where questions are answered that are there to help or educate or assist a person. Suggesting a method of weight loss through… encouraging anorexia (a potentially fatal and life-endangering disease) would not be helping, but would be promoting this dangerous life style. *** You can lose as much as one pound per day if you starve yourself. However, most of that will be muscle, which is smaller than fat, and you will gain it back as fat as soon as you stop starving yourself.
In the short term, a lot. In the midterm, very little if any; as soon as you start eating, your body will just build itself back up again. See the related questions.
Nobody can know that for sure. In addition, we do not know your present weight. However, why would you choose to lose weight by staving yourself for 26 days. It is not a healt…hy or comfortable way to lose weight.
You will not lose enough weight to notice by starving yourself for one day.

Well, first you lose whatever muscle you have, so you're REALLY flabby. Then, after awhile, you're body will slowy eat the fat until you die.

Starving yourself will not make you lose weight. In fact, it will do the complete opposite. Your body will recognize that it's not getting enough food and will hang on to ev…ery single unused calorie that enters your body. The body increases and preserves fat stores when threatened with starvation, instead drawing energy from your muscles when necessary. You may actually gain weight from starvation, and you will certainly lose muscle mass--that's bad, because muscle burns calories THREE TIMES faster than fat. If you really want to lose weight, exercise is the answer. People look down on anorexia, but who's going to complain if you run ten or twenty miles a day? Also, exercise and lifting weights will increase your muscle mass, meaning you burn calories even faster. Eat salad with lean chicken (it's full of protein, which is necessary for muscle growth) after workouts to maximize the effects. Don't forget to drink lots of water, because dehydration combined with malnutrition is a quick route to the hospital, where you'll quickly be denounced as an anorexic and thrown into the mental ward. Good luck!

A average human body uses around 2000 kCal per day. A pound of fat contains 3500 calories. If your body maintains its metabolism, on average you should lose 4/7 of a pound eve…ry day, for 4 pounds a week. However, your body's metabolism will start shutting down before then, so you will lose much less fat. Also, your body will begin absorbing your own organs in order to obtain the nutrients your body needs to survive, so some of your weight loss will come from your body eating its own organs, such as your liver.

This question has several answers: You would lose all of it because if you starved yourself completely, taking no food or liquid, you would be dead before the 40 days had exp…ired. Another approach is to look at your daily calorie intake. A commonly recommended intake to maintain health is 2000 calories per day. Carbohydrates and proteins provide 4 calories per gram and fats provide 9 calories per gram. Eating 222 gms of butter or 500 gms of steak a day would be equivalent to 2000 calories. Theoretically, if your diet had consisted entirely of butter and you ate nothing for 40 days you'd lose 8.8 kg; if it had consisted entirely of steak you'd lose 20 kg. So the amount you would lose depends on your diet beforehand. There is a significant difference between 'starving' and 'fasting' - we usually think of starving as being something imposed on us by circumstances beyond our control, whereas fasting is undertaken voluntarily usually for purposes of physical or spiritual cleansing. There is nothing at all unusual about fasting for 40 days but you need to understand what you are doing in order to fast safely - and more importantly, to break the fast correctly. Our bodies are hard-wired to store any excess fat we consume in order to survive future famine-like scenarios. If you starve yourself the excess fat will be consumed first but at a certain point the good flesh (muscle) that you want to retain will be be consumed too. Self- starvation (i.e. diets) are likely to result in 'yo-yo' dieting with more weight being regained after the diet than was lost during it. A saner approach is to continue eating normally while gradually eliminating calorie-rich but nutritionally-poor foods. So if you normally eat a 250 gm block of chocolate each week (2250 calories)and you 'starve' yourself by no longer eating that, then at the end of a year you would have consumed 117000 calories fewer than normal and would weigh 13 kg less without having done anything else different.
