You must know yourself that it is not normal otherwise you would have not posted in an Eating Disorder Forum. I highly recommend you DONT do this. You're body at the moment will be running on nothing, and it will start eating away at the muscle. Also, your metabolism will be slowing right down, so the moment you start eating, you may actually gain more.

THE UP SIDE to this is that you have not damaged youself yet, and you can change for the better. If you stop this now, you will not end up gaining heaps of weight, and you will not go into starvation mode. If you need to lose weight (and im talking NEED to as in be advised by a doctor or medical professional then this is certainly not the way to do it. It does not work.
You are not getting anything from doing this. You have to eat in the end or you die. Either way you CANT win from an eating disorder!
