What you ask is impossible.


The prime force at work in all stars is gravity. And gravity is directly related to the amount of mass present. When stars start their nuclear reactions, they do not stop until all the hydrogen and then helium is used up. Only when the nuclear fission stops do stars cool off but there are exceptions: quasars/pulsars.
