It is a desperate weight-loss strategy, or alternatively, sometimes the unwanted result of extreme poverty or local famine.

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.

If you are starving yourself can drinking green tea increase your weight loss?

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.

How much weight will you loose in 4 days if you starve yourself?

You can loose weight faster by eating little amounts of food in moderation instead of starving your self. Starving yourself will cause the body to go into starvation mode and very slowly eat away at muscle not allowing you to loose weight fast just muscle. In about four days of starving yourself i would say up to about 5-6 pounds, If you eat once in the morning and once in the afternoon id say up to 8 pounds, the more smaller meals you eat through out the day the better chance you have at loosing weight

Is starving yourself good or bad and in what why are they good or bad?

Bad. By eating, yes, your body does indeed store fat, but when you don't eat, your body thinks it is in danger of starvation and when you do eat, your body holds dear to every single little piece of energy it can get a hold of. This will make you grow "larger." It will store the fat. Really, if you want to lose weight, eat and exercise. Starving yourself will make your body dysfunctional. Eat up!

Do you put on weight when you 1st starve yourslef?

First of all, the dangers of starving yourself can vary to DEATH! But to answer your question (and may god bless you if your tearing your body apart by starving yourself) ;) Actually your body is mostly water, once you have no food or vitamins or minerals your water in your body (that is retained) makes you retain water. And also makes you feel dizzy, sick, very likely to get ill, or face death. So you do gain a little weight in the beginning, so it is stupid to even start in the first place! My suggestion is get a wii, and wii fit (if you can afford it) it works FANTASTIC! I lost 4 pounds in the first week! my body is amazing, and I eat right! I skip the chips and eat a delicous ripe apple! Or you can walk your dog, or jog.
