Whatever you lose is likely to be water weight and will come right back once you eat properly again. Not eating is really a bad idea because you will slow your metabolism down by doing that. The body will go into survival mode and start pulling what it needs out of your muscles, for nutrients.

Several pounds but this not a good idea. The weight you lose from not eating is mostly water weight and you will gain it all back the second you eat something.
It won't be fat lose and while it will look good on the scale, won't really be noticeable to other people.
Starving yourself to be thin is a sign that someone need help.

Probably a few pounds, but once you start eating again, you'll gain it back as the body will have gone into starvation mode. Which means the body is going store excess fat to keep your vital organs at the right temp. Not to mention you'll screw up your metabolism big time. I wouldn't recommend it.

So are you going on liquid diet?
Assuming you are going on liquid diet, you may end up gaining weight if you were having milkshakes with ice-creams and all that.

I don't know. But if you're planning on trying that, please don't! That can't be healthy. Diet and exercise.

It depends on how much you weigh now. The more overweight you are, the more you will lose. I would estimate ten pounds. But you shouldn't starve yourself for a week. You'll end up gaining th weight back and your metabolism will be slower.
