Should you starve yourself thin?

Should you starve yourself thin?

Although an occasional day of fasting can improve self discipline or provide spiritual renewal, it is not a healthy long term method for losing weight. Prolonged fasting induces many adverse effects upon the body including weakness, light headedness, nausea, extra strain on the liver and kidneys, and loss of vitamins and minerals. It is only after several days of fasting that the body will actually begin to break down excess fats. Cutting down only 500 calories a day will result in a more permanent steady weight loss, with no deleterious effects on the body.
