It is not safe to do this. Going without eating to just see if you could do it is foolish and you could do a lot of harm to yourself. We here at WikiAnswers do not encourage anybody to go without eating. Here are some thoughts from some users about your question: * I had a eating disorder for about 3 years. Then I stoped ,but now I'm back on it. Because I am sick of see all the skinny girls and no heavy girls. I also have nother problome. I am a SI if you dont know what that is it is a Self ingerer. I used to cut my wrist. But now Ive stoped that and Now im on this. I need help but I cant go to anyone. I am sorry for anyone who is going thru this. I know it stinks. And Im sorry for anyone going thru this! I truly am! * Why would you want to do that? I will give you some comments later, but now, I'm going to answer your question. No, it is not safe. If you are going to starve yourself until you almost die, you have to stop eating for quite a while. This would mean that all of your fat would eventually be burned up, and so your body will start burning muscle as energy. Also, after a few weeks, some of your body systems wil start shutting down, and that's just unhealthy. * No Please do not do that!!! What you just described is called anorexia. i have it, it's not fun, and it's not safe. I know what it's like to want to go to extreme measures to lose weight but starving yourself is not the way to do it.
