Recovering from hip surgery, wondering how long I should wait to safely start fasting again? Anyone have any thoughts about this?? I have been feeling tired and cruddy and hungry since surgery, but want to get back into fasting… A couple weeks??

I wouldn’t think there is any trouble with fasting
In your condition. I try to keep fasting even
when I’m sick. Could you start with 1 fast day
I don’t think there would be any problem either, if anything there would be a benefit. Healing burns more calories and less weight is only beneficial to your new joint.
Lulutiger’s suggestion – having a one day fast for the first week – sounds very sensible.
Take care and have a great recovery.

Good idea, one day to start, and see how it goes! I lost 9 pounds in the first 6 weeks of fasting, hoping I didn’t gain too much back! Thanks!! (I am really not trying to lose a lot, I like the other benefits of this lifestyle!!)

Fasting today for the first time in 2 weeks, only gained 1 lb back during my down time…
Great news Mitzmom! Wishing you a speedy recovery 🙂
