Fasting can be done for many reasons whether you want to lose weight or detox and cleanse your body from all the foods you’ve been consuming.
What is fasting? Fasting is when you do not eat anything at all but can drink water. Everyone has their own way of doing a fast but if you want to lose some pounds then you need to be strict on yourself and plan your diet afterwards.
I tried fasting for 3 days but I wasn’t strict on myself I ate something small like a piece of cheese or had coffee in the morning. But I’m strictly testing myself to drink water ONLY for the next 3 days and after my 3 days I’m going start a low intake calorie diet (only consuming 1250 calories a day) as you can probably tell already the reason for my fasting is to lose weight. I’ve gained more than I’ve been losing so now I’m feeling insecure about my weight. But no worries, I’m about to fix that real quick! Stay tune for the update!!!!
I did my research and watch a few YouTube videos of people and their 3day fast journey. Some made it look easy while the rest made it look hard and scary. People are passing out, getting headaches and just not making it to day 3. But if you know yourself and your body then you know your limits. So, do not push yourself into the hospital. If you put your mind to it I think its very possible to achieve. Like i mentioned before this isn’t new for me so I think I’ll be okay for the most part. I’m just training my brain to think less junk, eat less and healthy and drink more water.
