  • No. I causes extreme damage to your body and really doesn't have anything to do with weight loss in the long run.

  • Seriously, what a dumb question.

  • yes, you'll lose weight BUT NOT IN A GOOD WAY!
    you will be severely malnutritioned, your teeth will rot out of your head, and you'll reek of vomit all day long so no one will want to be around you.

    put some effort into losing weight - exercise and eat right!

  • Sure it works but google it and see what happens to you when you do it over a period of time. It destroys you and isn't worth doing. Only an idiot would do it especially a mother. What kind of example is that? If you're thinking on doing it contact a doctor right away. Its no way to go. Just do the right think and exercise eat right and make sure when you eat they are the right portions.

  • Well if you want to get technical,yes in the way that you're starving yourself in the process. If you're considering it,don't. Hopefully this is hypothetical!

  • you'll lose weight...but you'll also lose teeth from all the stomach acid and then lose your life from lack of nutrition

    Answer by aliishott2 at 8:37 PM on Jul. 5, 2010

  • No...
    Sure you will but your esophogus will start deteriorating from the acid...
    and every time you eat your body will store extra fat
    Then, when you get hungry and decide not to throw up you'll gain at least what you lost plus some.
    Eat breakfast within 30mins of waking up (something healthy like a yogurt and slice of fruit) Keep track of nutritional intake in a journal. Don't lie to yourself, eat right and exercise, you will lose weight!
