What's the longest time you've gone on a fast for? At the moment, I've done about 36 hours on nothing but coffee and water. I'm also exercising too. I was just wondering about other people since I'm planning to try to do a week and I feel like I need motivation not to cave in. 

 

For me, the longest I've done is about 4 days.

6 days was my longest which I know isn’t that long. I’m hoping to do a 14 day fast in August.

You might be hypoglycemic, or have blood sugar related issues. If it makes you sick but you're still trying to fast, try drinking juice or milk so you're not sending your body into shock. Either way, you're not weak.

You are not alone. 17 years with an ED, and I have never been able to fast. I seriously admire all of those who do it, and wish it was something I could do. I would love to completely take food out of the equation for at least a day, but my body won't let me.

I have accepted it now, I guess we're all different, although it did make me feel like I was weak in the past. Xx

Five days.

It was four years ago, but I lost like 10lbs and reached my then goal weight.

Then I weighed myself a week later and gained 3 lbs. Logically I knew it was because I couldn't possibly have lost 10 pounds in five days, but I had been eating 1200 calories so thought something was long with my metabolism and panicked. I went into a binge phase because I thought my metabolism had slowed, and decided oh well, might as well binge. A month later I was back to my original starting weight pre restriction.

Now I know better and I expect water weight loss so I know how to go about it more practical instead of giving up and going into binge mode.

My longest was ten and a half days, and I'm still kind of proud of myself for it. I lived off coffee, water, and soda, and still exercised every night. These days, the longest I can go at one time without food is around three or four days, probably because I exercise a lot more now than I used to.

Longest I've ever done was a little over a day lol, I just can't do it. I get IBS symptoms when I fast for longer than that (because apparently my body hates me that much lol) and then just end up getting shaky and getting the blackout spells when moving too fast. I'm weak af haha. I've found low-restricting to be much easier on me so I haven't attempted to fast in a long time.
