Does starving youself make you skinny and help you stay that way?

Not a rhetorical question .

Starving yourself sends your body a message that it needs to slow its metabolism down and conserve calories, so no.

No, it will most definitely make it worse. You could try eating less if you are trying to lose weight, but starving yourself is nothing that I would recommend.

No. It will at first, but then once you eat, your body will store the food because it thinks it is still being starved and will need it for later. It will just add more fat. I would suggest lower-calorie foods.

NO! Healthy diet and exercise will get you to lose weight. When you starve yourself your body retains more fat, your metabolism slows down (which is the rate at which you burn calories).

you will get a little bit fatter at first becusae your body sores the fat you eat, but after that it burns that off and you lose weight. it wont last perminatly and approximately 1-2 pounds a day after 2 or 3 days. but this is very dangerous, and it has killed many people. the best way to lose weight is to work out at least 10 min a day and cut 300 calories a day!!! ;)

Maybe your friends are TOO skinny....ever thought about that?? : ) proper diet & plenty of exercise are the best way to go. As long as you're not overweight for your height & age, don't worry about it! And besides, some people are just genetically bigger than others! Be yourself, rather than comparing yourself to your friends! 8)

No i've heard stories of girls dying because they had that mindset. All you have to do is make the right food choices, exercise, blabbidy bla bla, you know but dont go to the extremes, because that's a long and painful road.

of course it will make you skinny and of course it will help you stay that way.
but....
it will screw up your metabolism so that when you do start eating normally the weight will pile on.
there's a really big difference being skinny and being trim with a little muscle definition < you won't have that when your body is in starvation mode.

Definitely not, it could lead to malnutrition, anorexia, osteoporosis, anemia, and other multiple diseases and disorders. You could go on a diet,vegetarian diet, or excercise. Never starve yourself. Hope this helped
NEON ORANGE AND GREEN :D

Why'd you change your question? Back to the starving yourself question. Don't choose Anorexia or actually Bulimia as a way out. The only way out you would have is death and you don't want that to happen. The best way is to eat a healthy diet. Don't starve yourself though.

And my favorite colors are:

-Black: It's a dark and mysterious color. Plus I look good with black on haha I love it though.
-Red: It's sexual and bloody
-Navy Blue: It's just better than bright blue
-Neon Green: It's an awesome color
-Violet Purple: I love Violet Purple
-White: It matches anything and I like it
-Silver: Looks very good on me, and it's really beautiful

Just avoid very fating food. Still eat though or else your body isn't not going to healthy by lack of nutrients. Have a balance diet and exercise if you want to loss weight.

Oh im sorry but still I can give you suggestions of what is a good diet( Normally have some soup before you eat it fills you up like miso. Then have lots of veggies with you food and fish.) Why fish because it is a healthy lean meat. Even if you have some sort of craving give yourself a small treat. That's what I do.

Agreed with most everyone. It will most likely make you gain weight. 5 small meals a day is recommended. Honestly.

No because starving yourself will make your body feel like it needs to keep the fat stored up so that you won't have to be hospitalized.
