What Happens If You Starve Yourself?

Answer

If you starve yourself, you are bound to lose weight due to the overuse of the stored glycogen. The body breaks down stored glycogen while the body's fat is broken down into ketone bodies. When all these are depleted, the body begins to use the protein stored in the muscles leaving you weak. This will rapidly lead to death since critical muscles stop working.
