How did Christian Bale lose weight for "The Machinist"?

Bale's crash diet eventually cost him his social life. He stated that he had to stop going out entirely. For example, during this time Bale explained that he would "do a bit of eating hardly anything" and would lose roughly 50 pounds. However, he would then binge by having a few drinks with friends and gain 7 pounds right back, so he decided to stop having a social life entirely.
