It has been proven that you can lose nearly as much weight eating sensibly as starving yourself. In fact, when you starve yourself, your body wastes away and so it looks terrible without clothes on. On the other hand, when you eat sensibly, cutting out fat (oil, butter, margarine, sauces, etc), your body answers the call and looks better too. Eat more fruit and less cake. Eat more chicken and less beef. Eat more salad and less beans. Pasta is good, without the butter. Eat about 1200 calories a day minimum. Don't forget to exercise. The more active you are, the faster you will burn the food you eat. If you're a girl, go to the oval and walk. Start slowly if you're not used to it. In about a month, you will lose 12-15 pounds with such a healthy regimen. One more warning: starving is dangerous to your system. Anorexia is a real disease.

It would probably be easier on you and your body to cut out carbs than starve yourself. Its really easy and in 8 weeks i lost 30 pounds. So just eat like eggs for breakfast, you could skip lunch or just eat some bacon or something and eat steak or something with a vegetable for dinner. I promise you will lose weight and you won't be hurting yourself as badly. when your ready to eat normally again just slowly go into it and watch calories and fat.

no do NOT cut out carbs. if you're trying to lose weight carbs should be about a third of your diet (you need them for energy) and lots of protein. do lots of cardio work and lift light weights with lots of reps

I've been there, done that. It takes about a week on amphetimines. I ended up in a hospital room-heart attack. I'm only 22.
