Why on this planet would you fast? It is not good to do at your age I think. I would worry about your safety. Maybe just eat small meals on some days.Do you have a weight problem?

It sounds like you may have post-traumatic stress syndrome. You should see a counselor. Intentionally fasting is not a solution.

Keep in mind that fasting is an intentional act. If you lose your appetite for some reason and then forget to eat, that isn't a true fast. And if that happens to you, you should try to eat at least a little something.

You might check out something called alternate day fasting. They say it can make you live longer and help you lose weight. I don't see how it would be harmful. A lot of people swear by it.

As a Catholic, I have many days in which I need to fast. I personally enjoy those days as it helps me feel closer to my religion and God. I think it's Ghandi that fasts for long periods at a time, he says he gains clarity of thought Smile It is cleansing but if it causes you emotional distress, maybe you should seek counseling to deal with your emotions. It's possible that something in your subconscious needs to be dealt with and fasting is only bringing it to the surface. Heal your mind, then the body will follow. I'm no doctor but if fasting is stressful, then any benefit you get from fasting is probably negated.
this damn tracker below hasn't been right in months! My current weight is 137!

Don't overthink it. Go by the label and anything else you add. If you only used water water and no sauces or anything, just go by the label. Sodium doesn't magically get added from water. Actu ...
