How to Fast. What if you decided to quit eating for an entire week? Would it be dangerous for your body? Nowadays, many people prefer to stick to periodical water fasting, so they don’t consume any food and drink apart from water.
Water fasting should last for no more than a couple of days, and you should consult with a doctor beforehand. Among its benefits are lower blood pressure, improved insulin and leptin sensitivity, lower cholesterol levels, and weight loss. The first and most important thing is not to jump into a long session of water fasting right away. Your first experience with it should last for about 2 days. As you plan your 7-day water fasting, try to pick a low-stress time in your life. Doing this during exam season or when you’re moving house isn’t the best time.

-For the first 6 hours of your “no food” period, everything’s going to be just fine.
-After 6 hours, your body begins to starve since there’s not enough glucose in your blood.
-After 3 “no food” days, your brain goes to another extreme and starts to break down your body’s protein. This happens because proteins release amino acids, which can be converted into the glucose your body so desperately needs.
-After one “no food” week, your immune system becomes extremely weak because it isn’t receiving any vitamins or minerals.
-Starvation may lead to death after almost a month or up to 70 days.
-There’s one rule when it comes to water fasting: you don’t consume any food and drink apart from water. According to specialists, water fasting should last for no more than a couple of days, and a consultation with a doctor beforehand is obligatory.
-If you want to water fast because of the weight loss factor, you have another option: intermittent fasting. This means eating nothing (or just a few calories) for a certain period of time and then eating as usual for another period.
-The first and most important thing is not to jump into a long session of water fasting right away. Your first experience with it should last for about 2 days. Listen to your body carefully during your first water fasting.
-When you’re done with your fasting, you should break it slowly. Easily digested foods like soups, juices, pureed fruit, white rice, and mashed potatoes are the best products for your first 2 days.
