For some people yes. I went 7 days without eating anything and I lost [EDIT] kilos, but it also depends on your metabolic rate, how much you eat, how much you excercise, etc.

My blog is open to all, those whom are easily triggered avoid, it's a story about a girl and her life and how far she has come over the years. If you read it, I hope it inspires you to keep fighting and to NEVER give up!

When you can no longer think of a reason to continue, you must think of a reason to start over.

Not eating properly is unhealthy. Not eating balanced meals and having set meal times (breakfast, lunch, dinner) is unhealthy.

We cannot tell you what is okay for you to lose, as we are not doctors. You should speak to your doctor, or find one, about a good healthy diet and exercise plan.

Also, I edited out both previous replies with weight numbers as they go against the TeenHelp Code of Conduct:

'Food diaries', or any indications of human body weight (including actual weights, BMIs, clothing sizes or 'tickers' that measure weight loss). Weight numbers in birth notices are allowed, however such notices may only be posted in the Pregnancy and Childcare forum,
