    Don't get me wrong, I didn't set out with a plan to starve myself as a primary means of suicide... I'm just hacked off that my body can hang on for so long. I've lost 130lb, I've barely enough muscle left to move around, but my heart's still strong as an ox. The romanticised notion of slowly wasting away doesn't compute - people ask me if I have cancer, but I'm not delicately dying, I'm rattling around looking like crap.

    My body just doesn't want to die... :sleepy:

    An electrolyte imbalance from starvation could cause your heart to stop suddenly.
  3. Sometimes I just want to starve myself to death but I can't food always wins. When I feel low I have a tendency to stuff myself. As the above poster says your heart could stop at any moment especially if you start eating properly again.
