A 46-year-old member asked:
If you just sit in a room for 24 hours and don't eat a thing, will you lose weight/burn calories?

You will continue to: Burn calories. But if you don't eat then you will go into starvation mode and your metabolic rate will slow. As soon as you start eating again - you will regain weight.
