    No, you have to eat 3 square, nutritious meals a day. The most important meal is breakfast, if you skip a meal, it's not good, so make sure you eat all of them and exercise

    Actually it doesn't. Reduced food intake often results in the digestive system trying harder to extract all it can from what little it is getting and a lot of that may be more fattening than one would like. Also if you resume eating normally with a system geared to pulling all it can from what is passing through, you could well put on a lot of weight in a hurry.

    The key to losing weight is finding what foods are going to be needed to derive the proper levels of nutrition and how much of each you require. While there are some norms out there, one must also consider their level of physical activity and adjust accordingly. Or better yet, up the level of physical activity to match the prescribed food intake.

    Overall, the key to better health is fresh air, sunshine, good nutrition, lots of exercise and proper sleep. fad diets, starvation diets, liquid diets ands all that are just ways to fool yoruself into believign you are doing somethign good for your body thus allowing you to avoid doing the really good things.

    If you starve yourself for 2-3 days, you will loose weight. But after 3 days your body switch to starvation mode, so it will actually save fat. If after 3 days you resume eating and you eat as much as before you will take all the weight you lost back.

    So unless all you want to is to temporarily loose a couple of kilos, I wouldn't go this route.

    Not eating will not help you loose weight. You should have 3 meals a day but eat smaller portions and eat protein, fish, chicken, turkey. Read your cereal boxes, find out the calories that are in them. Cherrios is a good one and recommended by the heart association. For snacks eat carrotts, celery, rasins, they will curb your hunger. Cut out sugar, it is posion to your body. Drink water in place of soft drinks. Take vitamins every day and it will also help you because your body will be satisfied.

    depends, there is this thing that the body goes into called "starvation mode" where it thinks the body is being staved, which it is, so it stores extra fat from what Little you do eat. So, it can actually be harmful and work backwards.

    best advice, eat small portions all day long. it's better for metabolism and drink a large glass of water at least once an hour!

    You still have to eat to lose weight. You need to eat the right variety of foods. Stay away from high fat and sugary stuff. Eat plenty of vegetables and fruits. And drink plenty of water. If you quit eating to lose weight your body will fight it and slow your metabolism down. And besides that it's not healthy to not eat.

    I've lost 5 kilos in my first week. It's my 10th day and I have included salad with some protein (eg. egg/ lean chicken) as you suggested. After 4 years of trying, the fat is finally coming off. It truly feels like magic!

    not straight away.. the body will compensate for a short while. its not a good idea to lose weight this way. depriving the body of nutrients and vitamins causes damaging effects, sometimes irreversable.
