Of course it is bad for you. Your body needs to consume a certain amount of calories in order for it to operate properly. Have you ever tried to start a car that had no petrol? Same thing happens to the body. Food is fuel. If you are starving yourself to lose wight you will just make yourself sick. The body isn't dumb and knows when you are starving it, so it holds onto that little bit of food and fat and stores it so feed off, so you will not actually lose weight that way unless you starve yourself for awhile. By starving yourself your immune system will go and you will get sick easily because your body is trying to give any nutrients to your organs so they don't fail. Please don't stave yourself. Nothing good will come from it.
Yes, you're only human, your body needs protein and other natural sources you get from food!! Not only your bones but other major health problems will start to take effect..you'll loose a lot of weight at the time, but sorry to say you'll gain twice the weight you ever had today. because your body recycles and cleans over and over. stop eating and your body will process like an 60 year old when you start eating again. it's not worth it. besides most body weight on your body is water weight. go vegetarian instead. DO NOT STARVE YOURSELF!

your body cant live long without food. You almost start eating urself away from the inside out. The less nutrition you have the worse off you are! Your body has to have protein and nutrients. you will start to lose your hair and ur teeth and bones with start to decay also
The specific effects of these conditions depend on the severity of the problem, but extreme cases can result in permanent damage such as low bone density, tooth decay or gastrointestinal problems and worst death.
