  • Doesnt everyone fast because surely if you have a meal at say 7pm then go to bed and sleep til say 7 and have breakfast at 8am that means you’ve fasted whilst sleeping?

    There are several ways to answer that question:
    1. some people dine at 7 pm, and then snack until midnight when they go to sleep.
    2. yes, while you sleep you are not eating. = fasting. But if that’s all it takes, then everyone would be slim, wouldn’t they? Let’s call that ‘passive fasting.’
    3. if one wants to lose weight, more action is needed. = active fasting. Which means lengthen the interval between last meal and first meal [18:6 style] or reducing the amount of calorie intake certain days/week [5:2 fasting] or eliminating food completely on certain days/week [water fasting].

    Fasting has many descriptions. Are you thinking of using Fasting to lose weight? Which sort?

    Personally I think true fasting starts about 20 to 24 hours after the last meal. At that point the liver has ran out of stored glycogen and the body has to start adjusting its metabolism.

    What is consider fasting is all over the map.
