ANSWER #2 of 11

yes, you do lose weight when you stop eating but it takes a few days to start losing weight, even then the first thing you lose when you stop eating is your butt, and it takes a while before you can get that untra flat stomach, by the time you do, your butt will no longer be there, so if your one of those lucky chics that has a butt you shouldnt stop eating just to lose a few pounds!

all you have to do is learn to eat the right foods and eat it in small portions, only eat breakfast, lunch and dinner, and if you have the erge to eat a snack make sure it is something healthy like a piece of fruit, but if your just NOT into healthy snacks you can eat unhealthy snacks but eat A SERVING SIZE ONLY!!!

I would say in the long run no.

It sucked and I regreted it so much. So really its only hurting you...stealing your muscle, makeing you hungry, bad for your body and health, and makes you gain weight unless your planing on not eating ever again! Beka- 15

How much weight can I lose in 2 weeks by not eating?
ANSWER #4 of 11

yes you do. After much research, when you starve yourself you lose fat first then the muscle goes away. The key to it is finding out when you run out of fat to lose. This can be judge on your own. Furthermore, after exercising after you have fasted your weight will actually stay at that level for quite awhile. I lost 20 pounds in two months, but it took me two years to gain that weight back through moderate exercise. Now I'm on the diet again but I realized that most of my new weight is muscle based.

How does cranberry juice help you lose weight?
ANSWER #5 of 11

I see there's tons of yes and nos.

Well, honestly, if you do it the RIGHT way yeah you loose weight.

Your body does take the muscle away first because it has more nutrients your body's craving then it goes after the fat.

So this is what I use to do, every time I'd get a headache from not eating much, I'd exercise for 5-10 mins [I COULD have gone longer but there wasn't much of a need] to get rid of my head ache and NO you don't feel dizzy doing it.

I ate only fruits and veggies too.

And when you stop eating, you don't loose your butt first all the time, it depends on YOUR body.

Also, the fruits and veggies have natural sugars in them, so when you feel dizzy or out of energy they give you a boost.

Make sure to only drink water or Propel. Nothing else.

Hope I helped [you may not loose A LOT of weight but you will most deff shape up!]

Fact or Fiction: Wearing a plastic bag helps lose weight.
ANSWER #11 of 11

actually, no
when you dont eat, your body actually stores it's fat, making it ultimitly harder to lose weight, which means you actually hole on to the weight instead of losing it.
also, not eating does not give you a flat stomach, and it is proven.
so if you are in fact overweight, I suggest cutting out fatty foods in your diet, or limiting them, and improving on your fruits/vegetable intake. Also, go to a gym and work out for 30mins a day, 5 times a week!
