Is it possible to live of less than 10 calories a day? How much weight would I lose using this method?

My new diet consists of

Breakfast

1. 2 small slice of banana

2. 2 glasses of ice cold water (since the body need to use more energy to warm it up than it gives you, which is zero)

Lunch

1. 2 glasses of ice water (negative calories again)

2. 1/8 stalk of celery (the body uses more energy to break down the fibre of the celery than it gives you)

3. 2 thin slices of peeled cucumber

Dinner

1. 3-4 glasses of ice water

2. cabbage soup (also negative calory food)

3. 2 thin slices of cucumber

Is this a balanced and healthy diet to lose weight?

    No, not for long. No, that is neither healthy nor balanced. Weight loss is more complex than just limiting calories. The ridiculous diet you posted is 100% carbs, so you will get no fat or protein-- both of which are actually essential for organ and brain function as well as can help you burn fat.

    The problem with your diet is that you will be weak, light-headed, and starving in a day or two. If you could fast for a month and just drink water, your body would have to cannibalize itself, and you would definitely lose weight -- a combination of fat and muscle. That isn't necessary or healthy. If you are overweight, it is because you have been a chronic overeater. What you need to do is learn how to enjoy your life eating just the right number of calories to sustain a healthy weight and provide comprehensive nutrition to your bones, muscles, and vital organs.

    You already know this is not a balanced diet. And if a person eats like this for very long, the body will go into starvation mode, and the person won't lose weight.

    Eat a sensible diet, and if you'd like to lose weight? Try Atkins way of eating.

    Stupid way to diet.

    Better not to eat anything at all just drink water, doing this you will lose about 1 pound per day.

    How long you can live depends on how much fat you have.

    I can lose 20 calories by doing this or that:

    or lose 500 by jogging around the ******* block.

    A diet like that is scarcely any different from fasting. Ten calories is virtually nothing.

    I can't tell if you are trolling. This diet is not balanced nor healthy. In the long run you will probably gain weight since your body will store more fat as a result of being starved.

    Incorporate a sensible healthy diet with exercise to lose weight and more importantly be healthier.

    Not balanced and definitely not healthy. It is, in effect, a starvation diet. You will gain back everything you lose and probably more, studies show, with this kind of diet.

    If you use that diet, your body will go into starvation mode and begin to store fat. If you want to lose weight, consult your physician. He/she can recommend a diet and exercise program that will help you lose weight.

    That diet you're proposing is not balanced and not healthy. Please do not use it.

    You are being ridiculous if you actually think this is a balanced and healthy diet. You will go into starvation mode for one where you break down muscle tissue and become ketotic to keep the brain nourished. You also will become malnourished and vitamin deficient which results in the same medical problems as anorexia (See Karen Carpenter and death by anorexia). You will become to sick to even worry about your weight.
