Sorry, I need to jump in here - You have NO IDEA what Christian Bale did to look as ILL as he did in The Machinist - you have only whatever info you have read from sources that stalk celebrities. Even he himself may have been saying one thing, doing another.

What I DO know is this: 1. His character was MEANT to look hideously unwell - that was the purpose - and I'd lay money on the fact that CB might be horrified if he thought THAT role made him ANYONE'S role model!

And 2. Everything already said. How long can you sustain a 'crash diet'? Until you crash. And you will - your blood sugars will play havoc with your metabolism and your body will start storing energy, not using it - so you'll lose water weight and muscle mass, and store fat.

Please be sensible. PLEASE.
