This is an ineffective way to lose weight, because you will not lose much fat, and you will put on fat more quickly when you restart your regular eating habits. If you want to lose fat, stop eating carbohydrate dense, processed foods. If it's in a box, carton or packet it's often bad. Stick to lean …proteins, fruits and veggies and exercise often. You simply cannot lose weight and maintain your weight loss in the long run without changing your eating habits altogether. . When your body stops getting food it goes into a starvation mode and saves fat. The weight you will lose (not much) will be mostly water and muscle tissue. This is bad because not only will you have to start eating again, but since you now have less muscle, and therefore a slower metabolism than when you began fasting, you will gain even more fat on top of the fat that your body stored while you fasted. The only time your body will start burning noticeable amounts of fat is when it can no longer burn muscle proteins as a fuel source. However, this will only happen you're close to death. . Rather than starve yourself, you will do far better to strictly limit or eliminate (apart from the occasional treat) refined (processed) carbohydrates. If you are unsure what refined (processed) carbohydrates are, see the related link for a list. If you couple this will frequent, cardio exercise, you should lose weight. . I tried it. I must say I do not have an addictive personality or focus much on my body or looks. I did it in an attempt to try to understand what a friend of mine was going through. I started at 176lbs and the initial weight loss was quick, probably due to emptying my body of the waste over the first couple of days. I drank only water and tea with milk and one sugar. I did my normal work involving moderate exercise and lost 11lbs. Unexpected symptoms nearing the 7th day were: flickering vision and problems focusing my eyes, giddiness, and fatigue. Please note: Half the weight was back on within a couple of days. Losing weight fast is not a viable method for people who need to lose weight, and is definitely very dangerous to people who want to lose only a bit of weight. . You may lose a little bit of weight by starving yourself for a week because you body will become so hungry that it will start to eat fat and muscle tissue. You will likely also feel weak, tired, irritable, and sick because you are not consuming necessary calories or vitamins. This will also make your metabolism slow down, which will hinder current and future weight loss plans. After your fasting period, you are likely to gain much of the weight you may have lost back. . Actually, if you starve yourself for long enough your metabolism will go into "starvation mode" and slow down. This is why many recovering anorexics gain more weight back than they originally had before the eating disorder. . If you're really going to do the drastic, scary weight loss strategy, eat a small amount every day, divided into four or five small snacks. An intake of a small portion of food every few hours throughout the day will speed up your metabolism, and you should still lose weight in a very small amount of time because of the substantial decrease in calories. . The real reason why people gain weight after fasting (starving) is because they go straight to heavy foods that requires a lot of chemical reactions to take place at once to break it down and your stomach just isn't used to that after starving it for prolonged periods of time. When you do start to eat its best to start of with small foods like soup and smoothies. Don't eat big meals. You have to let your body get used to eating again and exercise, but not extreme amounts, is recommended to keep the weight off. . From personal experience, I would not recommend not eating anything. I went from 235 - 205 in the last month by sticking to the following meal plan: I don't eat breakfast. I eat a small cup of chunk light tuna (3 oz or so) for lunch and drink plenty of water throughout the day. I hit the gym and do plenty of cardio exercise (cardio exercise the key to major weight loss because it burns lots of fat). For dinner I have perhaps a cup of soup, a small piece of chicken, or nothing. No, its not healthy at all, but not eating anything is not very smart and is incredibly difficult to do. I have not felt fatigued, nor have I had any health problems of which I am aware. . I would like to add that I drastically cut down on calories for around 2 weeks for my birthday party. I lost a stone (14 pounds) in 2 weeks and I actually still ate, just very little. I started eating again (not quite normally, but around 1500 calories a day) and I haven't gained any of it back at all. I'm really happy with my weight now, and eat three healthy meals a day, just small amounts each meal. . If you're going to give up food for a week, try going on the Lemonade Diet; by going on the Lemonade Diet, your body won't be starved and you'll cleans your system. You can lose up to 20 pounds if you stay on the diet for 10 days. (MORE)
Answer . Your body needs all sorts of vital nutrients, vitamins and minerals that you simply won't get from just eating cottage cheese for two weeks. You will start feeling sluggish, weak, disoriented and probably worse after just one week on a diet like that. It's also not sustainable in the lo…ng term - it's not going to help you become healthy or keep you healthy. Losing weight is a matter of balance. You body needs a certain amount of calories a day to maintain your current weight. Any more calories then that and you gain weight, any fewer and you will lose weight. Fitday.com, The dailyplate.com and many other FREE online websites can help you find out what your current calorie maintenance level is. A safe number of weight to lose is 1 to 2 lbs a week depending on how heavy you are. The weight didn't come all at once and it's not going to leave all at once either. In order to lose 1lb a week you need to eat 500 fewer calories a day then your maitenance level. 2lb means you need to eat 1000 calories fewer a day. You can do this by eating less or by exercsing more. You can do this in a healthy fashion. . Answer . I think if you would eat food like that for that long you would get sick but it is only my idea of what would happen. And a little bit off reaserch you should reaserch the food's you eat.. Answer . For one thing ur gonna get sick a two your thighs are gonna get fat! (MORE)
1/2- 2 pounds is the healthy amount of weight to lose in a week. Answer some diets claim you can lose 20 pounds, but that's unhealthy and dangerous. Depending on your age and initial weight, 2-5 is about right. Answer I lost 10 lbs in one week by only eating dinner ---------------------…-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- It's actually only scientifically possible to lose/gain 2lbs of fat in one week, when you say people claiming to lose 1 stone in 1 week, they're losing muscle and fluid, not fat!

AnswerYou should not be doing that. That is not very healthy for you not to eat for 2 weeks. It is actually very stupid. You need to start exercising, eating more fruit and veggies, and drinking more water. Not eating will cause significant damage to your body.
Answer . \nWorst thing you can do. Your body will think it's starving and survival mode will kick in and screw up (slow down) your metabolism. You will not feel good.\nInstead, try a Fast or body detox, plan with juices, or protein powders. Try the "Fast Track One Day Detox Diet". Search at Amaz…on or another book site for it. It's not really one day, you do a week prep, then the detox fast, then a three day recovery. You can exercise all you want. Except on the Fast Day, I believe. Check it out.\n. \nDon't just Not Eat. Everyone knows it's just stupid and makes things worse. Your metabolism slows down and you lose weight slower.\n. \nBTW...ephedra is legal again and works great as a appetite supressant. Check out some nutritional supplement websites and you'll see all kinds of stuff. (MORE)
Answer . You will be sick tired drained ANd you won't loose weight because your body thinks its starving so its saving fat then when you finally eat it is going to make you gain more than what you started. So Your better off getting on an organic diet and cut out your sugar and soda intake!
none. youre metabolism will shut down as your body will assume it needs to save its fat stores because you are starving. approach this from the other end. keep your eating pattern the same (you sound like you are a healthy weight) and instead increase your aerobic exercise - perhaps by jogging every… morning for a week. buy a tape measure instead of a scale and keep track of your waist size instead of your weight (muscle weighs more than fat) About 1-2 lbs per day. But once you go back to eating normally, you'll gain the weight back just as fast. So have a plan once you plan to stop, like gradually increasing the amount of calories to get your body used to it (200 calories 1 day, 400 the next, ....) okay I'm just adding to this, because they say your a healthy weight. that's soo not true, if you put your weight and height into a bmi calculator you are obese. and actually you would lose weight, trust me i know. however don't starve yourself completely because then one day you'll wake up and crave everything that you really shouldn't eat. and even if you don't eat for one week, you won't not lose weight. because you will, i dunno who wrote that answer up above but they're obviously idiotic, or have never been anorexic. Well, I am on my fifth day of a fast, and I have lost 8-10 pounds so far. Down from 230 lbs to 222 pounds, or 220 lbs, depending on where in the bathroom I put the scale. (MORE)
You may not lose any weight if you eat too much fruit, it is very high in sugars. But it is certainly going to be healthier! Too much fruit, if your body is not used to it, will also have a laxative effect. Lack of proteins may also affect your health.
well I've been doing for about 14 years and i lost a ton of weight its easy abd make you look good.
Answer . You don't have to worry about losing weight on 500 cal. a week. You won't last very long. People who are on diets normally eat from 1000cal to 1800 cal. a day....not a week. That is not healthy or safe.
Answer . how much weight will i lose if in 4 weeks if i do atleast 2 hours of excersising a day and eat less than 800 cals
How much weight can you lose if you stop eating for one week - even if it is not healthy you do not care?
It dosent matter because when you start eating again you will put on weight because your body stores fat to keep it alive because it thinks it starving.
It really depends on your body's maintenance calories. If your maintenance calories are anywhere from 1200-1600, not much. It also depends on how often you exercise. I'd say maybe 1 pound to a pound and a half.
What you lose will be water. When carbohydrates are not eaten, there is loss of retention of water.
The weight you lose will be mainly water and will soon come back when you begin to live again. It would be best to change your lifestyle to something including balanced, portioned meals and at least 30 minutes of exercise a day.
if you don't eat you'll lose some weight like 10 pounds in a week but you'll get it doubled but you can lose weight by changing your lifestyle like i did i lost 15 pounds in 1 month so it's better to change your lifestyle
It depends on your age, height, sex and activity level. 5600 a week is probably too low.
Well I do know one thing you won't have to worry about how much weight you lose since you will be dead from dehydration. Does that answer your question? You will die if you don't haveanything for 2 weeks U'd die. You can survive for around a month depending on your physical condition without food. B…ut you need water, and you need salts. You'd have to drink Gatorade and take all the required minerals and vitamins, because if you only drank water than you'd run out of salts, such as potassium and stuff. DON'T DO IT. (MORE)
It all depends on how much exercise you are putting in and how many calories you are burning.
Weight loss is just not attributed to eating less ... to properly lose the weight, one needs to increase their personal exercise levels.
There are 2 things:- Weight loss(losing body mass, they may include loss of fat, water and muscle from the body) and fat loss (just losing fat from the body). Since you are talking about "healthy eating and exercise" i assume you are talking about fat loss. People say that losing 1 to 2 pound a week… is can be done in a healthy and stable manner. More could possibly be done, but may be risky. Also, you need to burn 3500 calories to lose 1 pounds of fat from the body. So if yu aim at burning 7000 calories a week. You could lose about 2 pounds of body fat each week. This means aiming at about 1000 calories a day. Aiming at more than this could possibly slow down your body's metabolism. (MORE)
Yes but there is something not really good about it. if u really want to lose weight with not eating or eating so less, its not healthy and it actually makes your body floppy or slack. Here's why: your body needs enough protein, calcium and etc which means you need enough nutrition to stay alive an…d be healthy. eat, but healthy which means don't eat chocolate, ice cream, cookies, chips and etc but eat eggs, any fruits and vegetables, milk (important cause of calcium), meat and... BUT.... Don't eat a lot like more than what you need and suppose to eat. Exercise if u don't exercise maybe you still could lose weight but if you want to have nice form or shape body, then you need to exercise. (daily: 30 minutes minimum) hope this helped (MORE)
Not eating is very dangerous, and starving or fasting for that long (not as a reuslt of a religious obligation or medical condition) is a sign of the eating disorder anorexia. Though a few pounds can be lost that way, they will quickly be regain onced normal eating resumes. The better and proper way… to lose weight would be through diet and exercise. (MORE)
That depends entirely on how many calories there is in all that soup you've eaten. If it' about the same as your regular diet- then you won't lose anything.
You will actually put on water weight at first, so not eating for a week doesn't help in losing weight at all. But to answer your question, that would depend on the person and their metabolism. Your life. Is that worth it? That depends on your metabolic rate. Some people may lose about 2 or more pou…nds but it is not a healthy option. Starving only causes your immune system to drop and expose yourself to health risks. Change your lifestyle. That is the only guarantee you can lose weight the safer and healthier way. (MORE)
Depends, if your an average adult you'll need around 2000-3000 cals a day (4000for teens and growing kids) by eating 500 cals a day you should lose 6-10pounds in two weeks if your an average adult (or an inactive teen/child), or 14 pounds if your active or growing. Although dieting while growing is …not recommended Apound of fat is around 3500cals The problem is your body will adapt to the lower calories and eventually it'll learn to run with less (although 500cals a day is impossible) and so you must combine dieting with excercise if you want the new weight to stay (MORE)
I reckon you could lose between 1.5 - 2 stone, depends on your build and how overweight you are.. I'm going to try not eating for a fortnight to, just drinking water and goin out for walks. =D
Not much. Without breakfast the body does not receive enough protein resulting in a a slower calorie burning rate. Eating healthy and exercise are MUCH more efficient in losing weight then not eating at all.
you cant just live on fruit because you wont be able to keep it up forever and when you stop you will most likely gain the weight bak on just as fast because your body craves for sweets it hasn't had in ages. but if you do eat only fruit for a week, through out that week you will get headaches and s…uffer from tommyaches due to the lack of unhealthy eating. your body needs an equal amount of vitamins and proteins. so if u r planning to do that i'd think again because it is not a very good idea especially when trying to lose weight considering you will gain it bak on again. the only way to lose weight is to have a blanced diet all physically, socially and mentally. and eat a variety of lean meats mainly chicken and avoid deep fried foods. in saying this im not telling you to not eat fruits, yes it is very important to eat fruits and vegetables. drink plenty of water, green tea. do lots of exercise. but to completely answer your question you will lose allot of weight if you only eat fruits for a week but u will feel unusual and sick of eating fruits after it. (MORE)
Not much, in fact you can actually gain weight. By consuming so few calories (only 500) your body goes into starvation mode and your metabolism actually begins slowing down, so as soon as you give it any form of food it will hold on to it and even store it as fat. If you exercise and cut calori…es in a healthy way the average person can lose up to 2 lbs a week- If you go on a 'fluid diet' you can lose up to 8lbs but it is mostly all water weight, that will come right back as soon as you start to eat normally again.

The safes weight loss in a week would be about 3.5 pounds. So around 2 pounds a week to keep it SAFE. thats about 1/2 pounds lost per day. no more than that or it can be unheathy and to quick.
Stupidest idea. Tried and tested, and as a result I was forced to leave school in the middle of the term and now I'm in eating disorder treatment.
If you eat less than 1000 calories a day your body can actually gain weight because it is either affected by the change or the central nevus system senses that your getting weaker and puts out the stored fat in your lower intestine. So the answer to that is you'll probably just gain more weight than… before. (MORE)
That would depend on how much tuna you're eating, and what you were eating before. In all probability not that much, maybe 1-3 pounds - most of which you'd put right back on once you start eating regular food again.
500 calories a day is roughly equivalent to one pound per week.. Actual losses will depend on lots of other things like exercise.
DO NOT DO THIS. NEVER EVER eat less than 1,000 calories a day if you are a woman or 1,500 calories a day if you are a man. if you eat less, you will technically lose weight, but you will lose MUSCLE and other tissue and organs etc. and NOT FAT. therefore even if your body weight goes down you will L…OOK fatter. NEVER try to lose more than 2lbs a week, that is the most FAT you can lose in a week (500 calorie defecit a day) Answer 2: I completely disagree with the first answer. If you eat 600 calories a day, you will lose fat. That is the first thing the body eats when its low on energy, NOT MUSCLE. You definitely won't lose your organs (that's just stupid) and you WON'T look fatter. It depends on your body how much weight you can lose in a week, but you will lose weight, and it WON'T be muscle. However, if 600 calories a day is continued for an extended period of time, your body COULD go after its muscle, but you never know. We're all different. (MORE)
The answer depends on a number of factors such as how active you are, you metabolism. etc. Since you are 168 at 5'4" lets assume you are relatively inactive.. To calculate the weight loss over a week, multiply your body weight by 15 (20 if you are quite active) 168 x 15 = 2520. This is the amount… of calories you need per day to maintain your weight. Multiply this by 7 days or 2520 * 7 = 17640 calories. Divide this number by 3500( the number of calories in a pound . 17640/3500= 5.04. Therefore you should lose about 5 pounds in a week. You will lose more than if you weigh yourself but the additional loss will be mostly water, and will be gained right back.. The idea of not eating for a week is dangerous and I don't recommend it!

The first weight that comes off in any diet is water weight and that usually is about 5-8 pounds. But the hitch in all of this is that is comes right back as soon as you eat something. Your diet is not good for you and will in the long run make you sick. If you must diet do something better than thi…s so you can stay healthy. (MORE)
None, probably. You need to burn 3,500 MORE calories than you consume to lose one solid pound of weight.
You will lose weight as that would be considered a fast. All the weight would come right back on, though, once you began eating again. Not eating for an entire week is extremely dangerous, too. It can be very bad for your health, and lead you to give in to cravings, binge, and actually end up gainin…g more weight in the end. (MORE)
Fasting is a very inefficient weight loss method. Whatever pounds you lose while fasting you are most likely to put right back on as soon as you start eating again. You're far better off sticking to a sensible diet and a sensible time plan for your weight loss goal..
It depends. If you don't eat much, you're going to get hungry. Starving yourself is basically the same as not eating much. As soon as you go back to eating regularly, the fat will come back. A smart idea is to work out and eat a normal diet.
It is impossible to tell since there are so many variables. It depends on how active you are, what you eat to get 8400 calories, how much sleep you get, etc. You may not even lose weight at all, even though it is highly unlikely. However, 8400 calories in a day is unhealthy, let alone a week. I do…n't think anyone is so fat that they need to resort to near-starvation to be healthy. You might even die if you go at that diet for more than a few weeks. I would recommend against it. In fact, if you are trying to lose weight, I suggest exercising for 30 to 60 minutes a day, using portion control, cutting out soft drinks and candy, and watching what you eat overall. Simply cutting calories will not get the results I am sure you are looking for. (MORE)
I hope you are not planning on doing this. It is EXTREMELY UNHEALTHY to do so if you have access to food.
Probably a lot, but you will be putting your life at risk. If you need to loose weight, follow a decent weight loss plan or see a doctor who will be able to advise you on what to cut back on. A cracker mainly consists of wheat, so in effect you are putting yourself on a prison bread and water rat…ion - and no prisoner looked good on that. (MORE)
It wont be of any use for u and if u really want to loose weight and ou must need to get aware of ur food diet and u must also go 4 exercies regularly and ultimately u have to change your daily schedule..
You can lose a fair amount of weight, however I would not recommendthis. Forcing yourself not to eat can cause bad health problems andyou won't feel like exercising.
Eating only 500 calories twice per week would be extremelydangerous . Do NOT diet without consulting a doctor.
You might gain the weight of a coffin. Dieting through starvation is dangerous, harmful, often counterproductive, and definitely not recommended. Rather, you should diet gradually, not skipping meals altogether; and allow a week for every 1-2 pounds you want to lose. Here's a program for the peri…od in which you want to lose weight: Plenty of moderate aerobic exercise, no sweetened liquids at all, and no junk food at all. Preferably no sugar, and as little added salt and processed foods as possible. Eat 3 not-large-portioned meals/day; do not skip breakfast; and avoid sweet snacks. Limit your calories (better to consult a doctor or nutritionist concerning the amount), and weigh yourself 2-3 times/week. Ignore the sensation of hunger. If you see your weight diminishing at a safe , reasonable rate (1-2 pounds/week), keep it up. Once you've reached your target weight, increase your calorie intake somewhat. And you can then have small amounts of sweetened foods or junk food on occasion (if at all), along with your regular foods (not instead of them). But keep checking your weight 2-3 times/week. Avoid crash diets, diet pills etc. Avoid fatty cuts of meat. Walk as much as possible. Bicycling and swimming are good too. More guidelines: Don't concentrate on specific foods so much as on a balanced, healthy diet plus exercise. Plenty of moderate exercise rather than intense exercise, which can damage your joints. Good nutrition means eating what your body needs, while ingesting as few harmful things as possible. It has also been described as getting enough of each of the major food categories (grains, fruits, vegetables, protein, dairy, etc.; plus plenty of water). This will vary somewhat from one person to another; and I don't believe that there's any universal diet that can be prescribed for everyone. Avoid best-sellers with their perennial fad diets. And think twice before using any dietary supplements or weight-loss pills. In general, one's starting point can be a menu of whole grains, whole-wheat bread, a good amount of vegetables, some fruits and nuts, fish, lean meats (in not-large amounts), and some dairy. However, this must be tweaked according to one's health, weight and other factors at the outset; and also adjusted over time, as one sees what works for him/her in particular. Also...whenever you feel queasy, nauseous, constipated or otherwise not completely well, try to remember what you've eaten over the last several hours or the last day. This is one method of adjusting one's food habits. (MORE)
