Can easily knock out 5kg. Eat 1200 calories each day and easily achieveable.

it is not dangerous at all, people water fast for months at a time, connor murphy did a 40 day waterfast first try. its dangerous if you dont know what your doing
but i dont recommend water fast for a month, do a 2 day water fast then 5 days eating. buddhist dry fast often aswell

if you don't have any underlying conditions and already have excess fat, then it's not as dangerous as it seems. You can do it for 2 - 3 days (without exercise of course) without having any problems, apart from your brain wanting food. That being said, if you don't know if you have any underlying conditions or don't feel well in your day-to-day then I won't recommend it. I do know people who have done it for 2 and a half days though and I've heard you can go longer but I personally wouldn't, just to stay on the safe side.

Your body is meant to eat food. Just use common sense- does starving yourself really sound like a good idea?

I assume your a teenager as well. Not eating/extreme dieting can mess with growth and such. I suggest you look into the subject a bit.

It can be okay, but for teenagers who dont know what their doing, it can be harmful ( not only physically but mentally ).

"As dangerous" still has quite a risk. There are better ways to go about weight loss.

Well unless you have diabetes or something I doubt you're at any risk, nobody can be 100% but the same is for everything. The 3 meals a day idea is less than 400 years old and we spent at least 10,000 years as hunter gatherers not eating daily, and sometimes weekly. Learning intermittent fasting then transitioning to a water fast is a great way to avoid the irritation of feeling hungry (you will be used to having long periods without food) and both are great at losing weight. Only problem with intermittent is to ensure you don't binge eat after the 10 hours (or whatever length you choose) and don't binge after the water fast either - ease yourself into food in small amounts.
I recommend you look into it, it's nothing the body hasn't evolved to do and there's a whole culture built around it, in a healthy lifestyle way not a eating disorder way. I don't promote or support unhealthy eating disorders, or the practice of healthy ones for unhealthy reasons, that only creates bad routines and mental obsession with weight.

Funny how you go to talk about how humans didnt eat everyday 10,000 years ago, and then jump to talking about evolution :lol:
I dont have a problem with water fasting ( for the most part ). But its not for everyone is the point Im trying to make. The OP is clearly a teenager. Dieting like this can be extremely unhealthy at that age. There are also much healthier ways to go about weight loss.

Yes it depends on how fast your metabolism is, I would recommend cutting out sweet food, dairy and just drink plenty of water. Make sure u get the right amount of sleep each night and exercise for 1-2 hrs a day 4x a week.
