Hello Everyone,
I'm planning on starting a 3-Day fast on Sunday, and ending it on Tuesday. I'm starting this fast to jumpstart my weightloss program (I'm hoping to lose about 10-15 lbs while on this fast). After ending the fast I plan on eating only fruits, and vegetables for a week, and then going on to a regular 1400 - 1500 calorie a day diet. My question for you is do you think this is a good way to end the fast, and keep the weight that I've lost off, and also do you think a 10-15 lbs loss on a 3-Day fast is a realistic goal?

Depending on your weight to start with you're look at at least 7-10 days for that weight loss, and maybe up to two weeks. But the good news is that once gone you won't need to go on a diet afterwards. If you break your fast correctly and stick to healthy eating you won't need to restrict your food intake at all- just eat according to hunger and you will be fine.

I have to agree with Andrew.. there's no way you can lose more than about a kilogram per day healthily. Most women lose about 300 grams per fasting day over long periods of time but on the odd occasion it may come to a kilogram. Men easily achieve one kilogram per day.

But the most important reason to fast is definitely not weight loss. Fasting improves your health and a healthy person tends to have normal weight as part of the overall picture.

Please don't focus on only one fallible measure. Be kind to yourself.
