    No. Not a good idea. Weight loss isn't achieved via gimmicks. If you are overweight it is because you've become accustomed to overeating. Change your diet, track your calories, and improve the nutritional quality of the foods you eat.

    Intermittent fasting (not eating for a full 16 hours and eating during a 8-hour window) has be shown to provide a variety of health benefits including helping with weight loss for people on Ketogenic diets. If you aren't on a Keto Diet, fasting may be much more difficult and yield fewer results.

    Smoking simply isn't a healthy choice. Furthermore, there are millions of obese people who smoke, so smoking alone clearly doesn't provide a weight loss solution.

    Meth vs. Cocaine to lose weight?

    Neither option is sustainable.

    Better to eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly.

    Neither just eat healthier with junk food here and there sometimes and exercise for thirty minutes four to five days a week. You can even download apps loseit is the best app ever even if i end up having a cheat meal and i go over my calories i know how much i need to burn off so when i go to log my exercise for the day if i didn't burn off as much as i wanted i can go back and workout again to burn off as much as i want to. Apps like that are very helpful and the premium level of it is really good i currently don't have it but i've heard good things about it. They have meal plans, different workouts you can do, you can set goals to drink more water etc. but yeah it will help a lot.

    Smoking is extremely dangerous and doesn't work well with weight loss because it can onlt do so much. You will most likely end up in the hosital, reguardless of the time frame. Fasting is a much more efficient option as your body starts to burn fat for fuel as there is no other option. It may be difficult at first so I recommend easing yourself into it but once you get used to fasting it is very helpful.

    Smoking will KILL you. Maybe very quickly, maybe not for a few decades.

    Starting to smoke just to lose weight is an absolutely stupid and horrible idea. Nicotine is an extremely addictive substance.
