I DID A 3-DAY WATER FAST: The How, Why + Tips From A Dietitian
I recently did a 3-day water fast!
Trust me, it wasn’t easy – I love food – but fasting, when done safely, has many potential benefits including disease prevention and longevity.
Disclaimer – fasting is not for everyone. Talk to your doctor before beginning a fast. Fasting for 7 days or more should be medically supervised. If your only goal is weight loss, I personally believe there are better, more sustainable options.
In this video, I share my 3-day water fasting diary. Along the way, I explain the physiological effects of fasting, the potential benefits of fasting, and tips for how to properly fast.
I also answer common fasting questions such as:
-is it ok to drink coffee while fasting?
-do you need to take electrolytes?
-how long does it take to get into ketosis?
-does fasting produce autophagy?
-will fasting interfere with sleep?
