Alternate days fasting - Prolonged fasting

Alternate Day Fasting

Alternate Day Fasting :Fasting every other day or alternate days by restricting calorie intake or full fasting is from morning to night. Dr. Krista Varady popularizes this.

Nutritionist does not recommend this type of fasting. Because one will be hungry and do not get proper nutrition for most time. This is not recommended for people with health conditions either. Going hungry to bed most days can cause more nutrient depletion from the body.

If someone wants to follow this type of fasting, they should try to consume half of recommended calories (or 500 calories) on fasting day instead of full fasting. Taking some calories and keeping with nutrients helps body to cope up with conditions.
