Is it safe for me to try and lose weight by eating one meal a day im 13

2 meals is acceptable not one! You would gain more weight, since you would eat more on that meal which is not good for your overall health! Your body need energy extracted from food you intake throughout a day to function appropriately. Hence, giving up 2 out of three meals per day would be detrimental for your well-being!

No you need to eat normal meal everyday and stay away from fast foods. Your body need lots of nutrition for growing up.

No, eat healthy foods and several small meals each day. Exercise - walking is good to start with. Cut out all the chips and soda - yeah diet soda too. drink plenty of water and you should see a change in a couple of weeks. Good luck.

No if you want to lose weight you have to be committed but I promise it will work. ONLY EAT FRIUTS AND VEGETABLES !! Nothing else.

She is still growing so bread, meat, and other healthy stuff is good too. Just not as much.

You'd be better off eating six or seven small meals a day ... emphasis on SMALL meals.

I heard that if you don't eat you gain more weight because of the way your body reacts.

No this would not be good at all. Your body with start to preserve the food you do it and store it as fat because it isn't able to eat healthy. Have 4-5 small healthy meals.

One meal a day will make your body store more fat as well as spike sugar levels. Instead eat 5 small meals a day (Such as a piece of fruit and half a sandwich) which will keep your metabolism running so it will be continually burn calories while still getting your necessary nutrients. Portion control is key. Also drink lots of water to keep your metabolism burning and aid digestion

This will help you lose weight. Light breakfast (bread/fruit),.big lunch (healthy of course) and small dinner.

You'll actually gain! Eat at least 3 meals (small) and drink lots of water all day

I would talk to your parents. They can help you by only buying healthy food. Eat 3 meals a day. If you feel hungry have a healthy snack.

NOOOOOOOO dont do that please I'm trying too lose weight to, just eat better foods. I've lost 16 pounds just by changing my diet (yes that's all it takes) If you want to know that kinds of food i only eat email me at matthew.fluffygleek@yahoo.com Yes i know its the stupidest email name ever but i make it like 4 years ago. Also stay with 3 meals even eat 4 just make them smaller meals. Its helps you burn fat faster.

Why eat one meal and be hungry the rest of the day, when you can eat lots of little meals that are actually healthy? Did you know it's possible to eat a whole head of lettuce (not all kinds, just stay with me) and be super full, but burn more calories than you ate? But, make sure that your biggest meal is breakfast so that you can burn those calories throughout your day, and if you do skip a meal, make it dinner, and replace it with some fruit or veggies

Absolutely not, it wll slow your metabolism down an awful lot and as soon as you start eating regularly again, the weight will pile back on. You're best bet is to eat 3 healthy meals a day, and get in to some excercise, at least 30 minutes a day :)

absolutely not; you need a steady influx of vitamins, minerals, protein because you are still growing. Eat at least 3 times a day, do exercise--walking is great, don't snack and keep your portions small. This will give you habits for the rest of your life.

you should try talking to your doctor he will give you a better idea of what to do such as change your diet don't starve yourself i tried it it sucks.! im gonna give you an idea but i don't think a 13 year old can manage to do it.So that Beyonce could be the young lady in dream girls the movie she had to lose a lot of weight. she filled a cup with water and added honey and mint leaves to it thats all she ate and drank for about a week i believe look it up if yu want also if your very hungry in the proses boil broccoli and some chicken dont add salt nothing just plain chicken and boiled broccoli. Cook with water (: goodluck
