Nah Its not bad. Just not good. My friends who are older then me know guys on the varsity wrestling team. They tell me they starve themselves to try to get into a lower weight class (does not make sense to me). They tell me not to be the kind of wrestler who does that. Those wrestlers sometimes go days without eating and then they wrestle and they win. Its not bad. Its just not good. Your body doesnt need alot to survive. Those varsity wrestlers are living proof of that.

Yes, but many people to do it for religious reasons, so it won't kill you, and most likely won't cause any health problems.

Your basically putting your body in starvation mode, because your body doesn't know know when it's gonna be fed again. So it's not so good D:

Okay, PLEASE read this answer, I'll explain why it isn't healthy. Your body naturally stores fat in special cells called fat cells. These cells are able to transform fat into energy and then release it into your body...when it's needed. When you get hungry, your body is telling you that it needs food. But when you ignore that demand, your body basically panics. the fat cells try to quickly convert the fat into energy, but, if you don't eat for a long enough time, the cells go too fast and end up traveling through the body. They can accumulate in organs and blood vessels, and from there they are able to cause health issues. A day wouldn't be too much stress on your body, but when you choose to eat measly meals every now and then, that's when this problem can arise.

No it is really healthy! It gives your digestive system a break. But you need to drink alot of water and not be very active on that day. You can get worn out and even dizzy, so it is goods to fast on a day where you can relax.

You can do it once a week, I know alot of people who do. I've fasted for 12 days on thw lemonade drink and it helped me so much!

I hope you realize that "giving your digestive system a break" is actually dangerous. Its sole job (the alimentary canal) is to break down starches and food molecules so it can be sent to the rest of the body for nourishment. Without that nourishment (even for a few hours!), tissues in your body (including that of the digestive system) begin to die. While cells in these tissues die in million every day, the extra death of previously healthy tissue can pose a serious problem. It's important to eat every day. It's actually healthier to have small meals scattered throughout the day (kind of like a snack) rather than eating a routine three square meals. But either way, you NEED food and you CANNOT survive on just fluid. And after having fasted for 12 days, your body was literally eating itself because you didn't give it anything else to digest. When in times of little or no food consumption, the body will first rely on its fat storage. If it is depleted and nothing else is eaten, it will turn to the muscles and start to break down the tissue in order to keep itself sustained. Next will go the organs. Even the stomach will eventually try to consume itself. If a hole is burned into the stomach, its acid will spill into the rest of the body and burn it because the stomach may be too weak to secrete mucus. You'll die because your body has nothing else to go on and could only find nutrients within itself. So a few hours is actually the start of all that. A day is almost like a little takeoff for it. And if you don't eat for a day, your body will weaken (it has already started using up fat storage). 12 days is dangerous and detrimental to your health.

Um yeah?! It can actually make you gain weight since it is irregular dieting.

Nah. Youll be fine. Ive heard of wrestlers who barely eat anything. (silly fools. While they are starving and becoming weak, i will eat and become strong. Then we'll see how not eating is good for you) You will survive. Your body doesnt need alot to survive.

Yes it's pretty bad for you. I don't think one day can kill you but don't do it again. Why would you do that anyway? Just wondering.

Going without eating for 24 hours if done too frequently may program your body to store fat. As far as I know when it's done for religious purposes it's frequency is both conditioned & regulated by tradition.

Your body will slowly deteriorate. If you lose all the fat on your body, than it will start eating at your brain, since that is also fat. Eventually you will have high health issues. I recommend you start eating and take tests to see if you may be anorexic.

Yes.It is very dangerous to your health.If you didn't eat anything as usual, it will result in the accumulation of hydrochloric acid in your stomach and it will create further problems.

i read an article once that said it is good for your heart to go without eating for a day every once in a while, but if you do it too often it isn't good anymore. not eating causes stress which may cause heart problems if you do this too often. go for it, you could reduce your chances of heart disease. but remember, too much of a good thing can become bad.
good luck.

not for a healthy person. However, if you go only once in a while without eating for a day, it's ok.

It's actually very healthy to go one day restricted to only liquids like water, and low sugar juices. Your body gets a chance to cleanse itself without having to worry about digesting the food you are eating.

I read several answers that say that it is very bad for you. It's not if you can do it the right way. You can go a full day without eating or drinking anything, or you can go the day with just drinking water. It's best not to eat or drink anything else. It's like a good cleaner for your body, so water does help. People say that your body goes on starvation mode and that it makes you gain a ton of weight in the next meal, but that's not the case if you eat the right things afterwards. Going a day without eating gives your stomach a day without exercise which means you have to eat things that are easy on your stomach first thing the next day. Fruits and vegetables would suffice. For lunch you can eat almost anything except for fast food or anything really tough to digest. Then you can eat normal again.
