Your body will be in starvation mode until you start eating again, and when you do, you will start gaining more weight then you had put on before. Your body is starving, and any amount of food that you do put in your body after depriving it for so long, will be converted into fat. Dont starve yourself, its not the way to loose weight, yea you will be a few pounds lighter in the beginning, but right when you start eating, you will regret it.

I have something to add to this well if u starve yourself your going to regret it because u start to feel like all u want to do is sleep and eat but you force your self not to eat so u go hungry your friends and boyfriend will start to get mad eventually.
