How fast does fat expand?


(Bacon is a many-splendoured thing) #21

It’s very easy to adjust electrolytes while fasting, yes. But people aren’t always aware of what they need. For a fast that’s shorter than three or four days, it’s not likely to be a concern (unless the faster is overdoing the water, lol!), but it can be over a long-term fast.

Oh yes, see my 5 day fast without eating any sodium, that was fun…
Still, not knowing how to do it isn’t the fault of fasting itself. But I never encouraged longer fasts or being forceful. I am merely against the opinion that shorted EF or even IF is bad, period. If done right and not done when the person doesn’t handle it well, it’s fine.
But I think it’s overtalked at this point :slight_smile:
