So.... almost no food

I wouldn't. If you really want to know about eating disorders you might want to look somewhere else. Peertrainer about being healthy. And eating almost nothing is about being anorexic.

Yes, you're better off googling "how to be anorexic" - tons of results.

There's really no reason to eat almost no food. You can lose weight on a low calorie diet that has enough calories to feed your body.
All I can say food wise is make sure you eat balanced. Your body needs every food group.
I know people will warn you about all sorts of things and I am no different. I have been on a very low cal diet for almost a year now and they don't lie when they tell you the problems you will have.
I have lost a huge amount of hair, as well as other icky things to talk about.
Just be patient with yourself and eat healthy.
Trust me it will come off if you lower not cut out calories.

an actual answer if survival is the problem

I went through a one-month period of my life with NO MONEY. This is what I ate:

1) oatmeal
2) potatos

Note that this will not sustain life over a long period of time. It was a miserable month, I was hungry all the time, and I didn't even lose a lot of weight. However, I didn't starve to death and since carbs are good brain fuel I was able to function with a heavy graduate course load.

Both of these are available in bulk v. cheap. Both are not "bad" in and of themselves (unlike, say, Ramen noodles). However, a steady diet of these 2 things will not help you lose weight.

I would eat a huge amount of green leafy vegetables, beans, and fruit.

Eating almost no food will trigger your body to go into "starvation mode". Your body thinks it is starving, and it begins storing fat to ensure your survival. Not a good idea.

At 800 calories a day you may not get fatter. But you will not be getting healthier. Anorexics have terrible heart problems among many other things. LIke they said before, google "How to be Anorexic" if that is what your going for.
