Well, I've done it twice. I don't recommend it, and I'll likely never do it again (and didn't on this weight loss journey).
But, since you ask, it's really pretty easy after the first couple of days (and the first is the hardest). Fasting is really a unique experience and it's amazing how hunger just goes away after a couple of days. Really, I could have gone longer but started experiencing bad muscle cramps. It really is mostly a mental thing.
As to actual weight loss, I really can't say for sure. I never weighed "before" as I was too heavy for a scale. I'd have to estimate 30 to 50 pounds, but I was well into the "400s" so lighter folks might lose less.
Really, I've lost weight almost as fast eating a reasonable amount of "real food" and it's been much more enjoyable.
