Whenever I am relaxing or trying to fall asleep, I start to get heart palpitations and it really freaks me out! Sometimes I get this with shortness of breath, and I get very alert and worried because ...
excuse me let me refraise my answer as someone already emailed me, whom I thought was quite rude. I have had this disease before and your body needs vitamins and nutrients, without them your functions in your body begin to shut down and or may cause health problems. Not eating for a few days will not kill you but you will start to feel ill.
Well it depends on the caloric count of the beverages. If there protine nutrient shakes you can go longer. Esentialy your body eats the sugar in your body for food, then your bodys going to panic, seeing that you havent eaten and start storing everything you consume. Your going to be hungry, tired, sleep alot. You'll see some perliminary weight loss before you start noticing your skin looking awful, your eyes wont be alert, and your teeth will start looking like ****. You'll have to reduce your caloric count to nothing to get the same results as your body adujusts. Then once you get to the point where your body cant do more with less, then it'll start eating itself, literally your body will start consuming its own musles and organs.
My roommate used to be anoreix its the most discusting thing ever. Eat healthy, Exersize, dont bother being skiny, it wont make you happy.
My best friend died from anorexia several years ago,
You can see how much she changed in a few short years. in essence your body will consume itself until your brain function shuts down.
you become malnourished. also since your stomach is not getting to perform its normal function u can get consipated.
First your body will disolve your fat, which is your stored energy. After the fat is burned your body will start consuming your muscle tissue and converting it into energy. Essentially you waste away.
First your body feeds on its stored fats. Then after the fats are gone, it begins to feed on its own muscle.The heart is a muscle, so it is often damaged in starvation.
Body needs energy.It is derived from food.In anorexia body tissues themselves are used for energy.This causes loss of weight,melting of fat ,melting of muscles leading to accumulation of these metabolites.
YOU SHRIVEL UP AND DIE.........
Your body notices that you arent feeding it, so it begins to eat itself. It starts off with the fat, then the muscles, until eventually there is nothing left and you die.
I'm sure dear if you don't eat for a long time your gone a die
Your bodies nutrition levels become depleted and your body resorts taking energy from your stored fatty cells which are in the side walls of your stomach. Some say you can go a month or a little more without eating,( like Jesus did it for fourty days.) but you will be entering a very dangerous area, because your body will become dehydrated and you will experience dizziness and fatigue and you could even pass out, or die.
Your body stores any of your body fat as a safety gaurd and begins to break down muscles for nutrients
you burn fat, after that your muscle converts into fat and gets burned, a couple days after that you'd probably die of starvation.
first you start getting dizzie,then you feel weak and finally you pass out...but this depends upon the person...you can go without food for a very long time
your body starts to eat stored nutrients or fat
it starts to feed on itself and eats itself slowly to evade the hunger.
If you "go a few days without eating at all" nothing much will happen. Your body will convert some of its fat reserves to glucose as an energy source for your cells. You'll be fine as long as you continue fluids. You can live for about 3 weeks without food but only 3 days without an adequate source of water.
From the other answers I've seen here, it would appear that no one really read your question. You said a few DAYS, not a few WEEKS.
