Dear Amy
stopping of eating is no way to loose weight but proper diet and regular exercise is the sure way to loose weight. There are vegetables which consume more energy for digestion than they release after digestion choose them in you diet. get thyroid examined.

Hello amy;
If you do not eat you may lose weight which cannot be predicted exactly but one thing is for sure if you lose say 1 pound you will lose your physical strength equal to 5 pounds.So you see if you do not take food it will be harmful for your health because at 12-13 yrs you need to be active and healthy and if you want to really lose weight eat properly at regular intervals and have food rich in fibers;and ow on calory count.Do not starve it will lead to formation of excess fat and you will not reduce weight.
Take care
