Unfortunately, after the first day or two there would be very little fat loss. Your body tends to go into "famine" mode, protecting itself. Your metabolism starts to slow and you start living off your muscle mass rather than the fat stored around your body. At the end of the 5 days you will end up with a little less fat and less muscle mass. When you start eating again you will end up putting the weight back on PLUS a bunch more.That kind of dieting doesn't work.Cut back on the fats, sugars and starches in your diet, make sure you get enough protein an exercise as much as you can. Working up a sweat FROM EXERCISE for a couple hours a day will help more than anything else you can do... provided that you aren't eating too much while you do it.


starving yourself will only make you even more hungry on that fifth day because depriving yourself is going to make you over indulge on food when you do it. Why don't you try to eat half portions of your regular meals and do some work outs like two to three times a day and you should lose alot fast.

Starving yourself is a rediculous and extremely unhealthy way of losing weight. Your body needs vitamins and minerals in order to lose weight in a healthy way. No matter how much you eat, (to a certain extent) if you eat healthy and you excercise consistantly, you will lose weight.
