I want to say "i would never think of starving myself (to lose weight).

Is it correct to say:
je ne penserais jamais à m’affamer.

I don't think using the conditional is right or if 'penser' is what i should use to mean 'think' in this context.

    I don't think using the conditional is right - yes it's perfectly right or if 'penser' is what i should use to mean 'think' in this context.
    Penser is correct as a translation, although I'd rather say : "ça ne me viendrait jamais à l'idée de m'affamer".
