Does starving yourself really work? Ok, i'm 17, two months shy of 18 and i am 288 POUNDS. I'm grossed out by my own body. I really want to lose weight FAST. I exersise and i gain weight... Please help. I hate my body!
Losing weight takes time, about as much time as it takes to gain weight. That said, you put the weight on, so take your time to get it off. You should be able to lose some good amount of weight, because you have to eat a lot of calories to weight as much as you do.

Well, yes, starving yourself will result in you losing weight, for sure....but it is NOT healthy and it will not lead to long term weight loss.
If you don't set in place good eating habits, even if you lose the weight, it WILL come right back on at some point.
The lowest you should go in terms of calories per day is 1,200. There are certain instances where a doctor will suggest a 1,000 or even 500 calorie diet for a duration for those who are obese, but ya...I cannot recommend such a diet.
You need to move from wanting to lose weight FAST to being happy with knowing you're MOVING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION and NOT BACK PEDDLING.
What if you knew that you could lose weight every week and NEVER wind up going back the way you were? That it was only a matter of time before you achieve the body you want? What if you had that CERTAINTY?
That knowingness that your ideal body IS yours...that with each passing day you just get closer and closer...
Having that certainty, that assuredness that what you want is COMING is enough.
So keep that in mind and get on a diet which is sustainable and realistic and you'll be CLOSER to your end goal as that will be something you can stick with.
Don't dip below 1,200 calroies...eat a lot of veggies/lean meats and some fruit...minimize the processed foods you take in and make changes gradually, you will make this happen for yourself when you reach your breaking point..you will KNOW when you're there. In the meantime, educate yourself further on what is necessary to attain your ideal weight.
