youll prolly drop some weight... but starving yourself like that is not healthy...

instead of not eating at all maybe eat less and EAT RIGHT... drink a lot of water and dont go lift weights... weight lifting doesnt burn as many calories as aerobic activities... so go swim... or run....

I'm sure BoCo will give you better advice, but from what I know you will loose weight by starving, but mostly water weight. Also, when your body begins starving, it usually depletes muscle stores for protein content and leave the fat deposits for energy. Then, once you start eating, your body will store more fat as a feast/famine defense.

That's what I remember from health class. Basically, don't starve your self, just eat better and workout harder.

Starving is not the ticket. Not only is it unhealthy, who wants to be that hungry?

Try a veggie / fruit thing for a few days. With a little research you can find how to get all of the necessary RDA from veggies.
I blow my nose at you. Now go away before I taunt you a second time.

Erm.. you're not gonna lose a substantial amount of weight in 3 days other than water weight as the others said, and if you did, it would probably come back rather quickly, and you'd gain more than you lost anyway. Most folk will tell you that it's safe to lose no more than 2lbs per week anyway, with regular exercise.

For good fat burning activites, aerobics is your best bet. I.E. Running, walking, jumping rope, etc.

Careful with running if you haven't done it in a while. Its actually pretty harsh on the body - I reccomend running on soft ground, grass... or the beach even. It's pretty hard on the beach but you get a better exercise. If you have a bike - awesome, take it up.

Around 2 months ago when my ex broke up with me... I had to do something... I'm down to 205lbs from 225lbs... I started by running and now I have to go to Physical therapy for Shin Splints... so I just bike now. I spend 3 hours, 3 times a week, biking - thats around 700 calories burnt per session. The rest of the week... I'll lift some weights. It won't burn calories that much, but it will increase your metabolism. As for eating, just eat healthier foods... but don't starve yourself, you will yoyo and eat crazy. Have 5 smalllllllll meals a day, instead of starving yourself - you will just pig out at night that way.

Set some goals, BMI and Weight - but more importantly, a dedication goal. How much time are you going to spend with this? I believe the current revised recommendation is an hour a day, 6 days a week. You need to work out for that length to start digging into fat stores. If you think you don't have enough time for that - you may be wrong. After youve been working out long enough, you become more efficient, and less tired, you may be able to sleep 8 instead of 9, or 7 instead of 8 hours a day, and you will get things done in a more timely manner. The time spent exercising pays you back in so many ways.

Can't help you in 3 days but a good diet to lose some quick pounds is this one. I do it once a month just to refresh myself.Consult your dochttp://members.fortunecity.com/gillonj/thecabbagesoupdiet/tor if you have medical problems.

see the problem with fasting is you will eat when it's over. I know someone on a carb diet now and it's work fantastic. It's a big committment but she lost 10 pounds in a week and it's all very healthy.

starving your self makes u lose less weight because u become unhealthy, and your body tries to compenase for that by conserving all the excess it can, so u actually dont lose weight by starving yourself for a few days

JStrider's regiment is what u need to do

What happens when the 3 days is over? It sounds as though you may have a hot date, or a Saturday at a pool party and you wanting to look a little more shredded that day? THats one direction, but if your hoping to keep whatever stride you make in three days doesnt it make sense that when you go back to your routine of norm it will be business as usual.

When you starve yourself the first thing to go is simple carbs, then complex, then protein, then fat, and finally you own body tissues. In three days it wouldnt get that far, but within 8 hours youd throw your body into a catabolic state when you probably want it in an anabolic state.

When you starve yourself your doing all various things to work against your goals; that is if your goal is to have an asthetically low fat percentage; while providing your lean mass enough fuel, as well as your natural hormones: insulin, growth hormone, testosterone, estrogen (an unfortunate need for testosterone), IGF-1 to flourish.

Have you ever seen someone that is technically skinny, but still looks flabby? Weight wise; a person like this is skinny, but they still have a high fat percentage. When you starve your body; it does what it has genetically evolved to do; survive. Instead of burning fat like we want it to, it holds on to fat because it thinks its going to have to store as much as possible to survive. This is why eating 2 to 3 meals a day can be counterproductive. Sumo wrestlers do intake alot of calories, but they only eat 1 to 2 times a day very large meals. This is done intentionally.

You may want to consider something you can do for the rest of your life, and be good to go year round. One approach us determining your proper caloric intake, and spreading that over 5 meals with number 6 being straight protein before bedtime.

Do you cardio first thing in the am before breakfast when you have very low percentage of carb ration. Without simple and very little complex carbs to utilize, the next substrate on the list is fat. Thats exactly what we want to use as fuel, you burn fat you; lower your fat percentage. (This workout sucks though, you really have to power through it.)

This is only one approach of many, Ive never seen anyone have bad results from the above program.

Good luck

You should be eating six light meals a day. Eating six meals a day will actually speed up your metabolism and cause you to lose weight. Starving yourself will do nothing and it actually slows down your metabolism a lot, and then when you actually do eat more fat is stored and you gain more weight.

My advice would be to eat six light meals a day but make sure you get all six in and space them apart while you are awake and do not eat right before going to bed because your body is still and cannot burn away the fat.

I completely agree with petergriffin. I've been in the process of losing over 100 lbs since Feb, and by far the best results I have had are eating 5-6 small meals that add up to 2100 calories per day. Even eating 3 meals a day at 1400 calories didn't work as well.

(don't use my calorie counts as a guide for you, those are numbers tailored for me specifically)

I work out, too.

Everyone says "small meals" but what exactly is classified as such. Would like half a sandwich be considered a smal meal? Those of you that are eating 5 or 6 times a day could you please post examples of the types of meals you eat?

Basically, take any typical single serving meal, and eat the portions separetely throughout the day. Or, eat your regular meals(but less of them), and "snack" on healthy foods in between small meals to fend the hunger off.

For example, if my "regular" meal is a a chicken breast, rice pilaf and some veggies, then I'd turn that into two meals by eating the chicken first, then the rice and veggies later.


It could also be just snacking on a few pieces of fruit, while making sure my "regular" 3 meals are kept smaller than normal.

small meals is a vague term, but from indiviuals Ive encountered its stated that way because the generalized norm is three main meals a day. A generalized amount per meal is not a black and white answer; there are contributing elements that comprise what your caloric intake should be per meal. Your present weight, lean mass ratio, fat percentage, basal metabolic rate, and hopefully if done right your labwork. Other factors which throw complexity into the mix is what your goals are, how often you workout, how you're working out, how your genetics respond, and how much money you have to spend on food a week.

If that seems overboard; it is. Thats for optimal results; laying the foundation to achieve the highest results your capable of making, drug free. The bottom line is if you workout hard, stay away from krispy creams, and get good resting periods you'll do better than not.

Seriously!!!! in THREE days - what are you thinking
in all honesty, three days of starving will just deplete your muscle glycogen levels - nothing will happen to you fat levels - and despite what you say you are just gonna be shit hungry at the end of it all. If you really wanna burn weight through starving then go a week or two - and you tell me if in the second week you can actually get up to type here - it aint healthy at all - and if you go one too many days without food it will serioulsy hurt because you are literally chopping up bits of yourself to provide energy for survival. Not a good plan - just exercise and eat less - but eat good

the more time you put between meals means more fat storage....

so rather than starving yourself....have small to medium sized meals several times a day...make sure they are healthy....

5 or more small - medium sized meals a day lessen the storage of fat in your body...that alone can take some weight off

to burn fat...run, swim, ride a bike
to tone muscle...do many reps of small weight
to build muscle....less reps but more weight

to intensify any of this get some supplements from like gnc or wherever....eca will take weight off and provide energy....but make sure you are eating right if you take that...

there are forums and sites all over the web that allow you to talk to professional body builders and personal trainers to try to find a diet and excercise routine that most suites your current lifestyle as well as allowing you to reach your desired goal...

good luck

Just a note...they are all right that starving yourself is a bad call, but if you are going to do it anyway I would take some supplements.

Obviously you would want your regular vitamins, but I would look at some non ephedra ripped fuel and things like that. Without anything other than water, you will have no energy.
