You still need to reword or reorder the other elements or the sentence. Perhaps something like "Tim was a thin boy because he would starve himself for many days"
Due to is a good substitute for "The reason why".
However, in this example that you brought it doesn't fit. Actually not even "The reason why" fits.
There isn't a word for what you're looking for, but there is a symbol.
"Tim was a thin boy; many days, he would even starve."
