I am thinking about just eating dinner in the evenings now and nothing else.
I know this isn't very healthy but could some scientifically knowledgeable people explain the possible consequences of this?
It will only be short-term btw (a couple of weeks or so).

I'm guessing this is also going to be a vegetarian / vegan diet?

In general we eat much more than we need anyway. You'd probably be better of grazing though.

Why are you seriously contemplating it if you know it isn't healthy? :-/

I made the presumption based on your avatar, and I don't see how not eating is cleansing for you.

This isn't a cleanse, you are simply starving yourself!

I wouldn't say I'm scientifically knowledgable but, for a start you would get low blood sugar leading to feeling dizzy, faint and most likely result in a headache or migraine. Why do you want to cleanse?

It will ruin your metabolism, your body will try to store as much fat as possible so you will end up looking like ****.

How bigs the dinner you eat in the evening? If its average or small you can lose some good weight doing that.

However you'll probably become tired, less able to concentrated and easily agitated.
Unless your use to it because then you should be ok.

You have a liver to do that.

A 'cleanse' is scientific nonsense. It's homeopathy.

but that is not true.
you could eat a 1500 calories dinner and that would be your entire calories for the day

A lot of people do something similar, it's called intermittent fasting i.e. not eating for majority of the day but then having a small window where you eat all your food. This is how prehistoric man used to eat when we were hunter-gatherers. As we evolved our eating pattern changed as food became more readily available. But from a scientific point of view I wouldn't say this is an UNHEALTHY way of eating at all.

People still intermittent fast nowadays, some do it for weight loss. As long as you eat enough calories to maintain yourself (you can work this out using online calculators), it doesn't matter if you take in all these calories in one sitting or split them up across the day in three meals.

What would be unhealthy would be to only eat say an evening meal of 500 calories. You won't have much energy during your fasted state and your body will turn to fat and muscle for fuel, which is why its important to take in enough calories.

Fasting for around a month every year has been proven to increase life expectancy by a few years

there is nothing wrong with what you are doing. Google intermittent fasting. it is a fat loss tool to lose fat without losing muscle
a lot of bodybuilders use this

I do this fairly often. Not on purpose, it's just because I'm hardly ever hungry. Personally, I haven't had any health problems but everyone is different and realistically you should be having three meals a day.
