Yeah… I did lose some weight. I'm pretty muscular,  and  I had some belly fat at the time, so I weighed about 130 lbs. before I started eating one meal per day (I was sixteen). Within a few months, I was weighing about 115. I gained the weight back when I went back to eating normally, but I never got the belly fat back…. go figure.
