Hey guys. My friend told me that starving yourself for 30 days will lose you 3 stone. Is that true? I'm not planning on doing this I'm just curious if this is a lie or not.

What do you mean "starving yourself"? If you don't eat for 30 days you'd be dead. Your friend is talking nonsense, it all depends on your starting weight, muscle mass, activity levels, and the specific ways you change your diet - there's no magic formula for how much weight you can lose in a certain timeframe.

Your friend is very, very dumb. Once half term is over tell her to pay closer attention in class.

Nope. 46 - 74 days on average.

But your friend is wrong. Very basically, you need to cut 151200 calories to lose 3 stone, that's approximately 75 days of not eating, though that doesn't take in to account the loss of muscle, bone density and bone marrow from total starvation.
