I'm just starting an open-ended fast, and I've never fasted for longer than one day before. I drive about a hundred fifty miles a week, not on the highway though, and it's all daytime and light traffic. Still, I've been studying this forum and noticed that from time to time someone mentions dizziness or lightheadedness. However I searched "drive" and nothing about cars came up. Could you-all fill me in on this issue? Do any of you have to restrict your driving after some days of fasting? If so, around how many days, and what symptoms do you have? Has anyone ever come close to having an accident? Any advice would be great. Thanks, Dinah

Dinah,

I have never had any problems when driving during my fasts. When I first started out fasting, I did experience some lightheadedness when I first got up in the morning, but I just learned to get up more slowly and then everything was fine. The only other time I experienced any degree of lightheadedness was when I stood up too quickly, and it never happened whenever I was doing anything else (running, walking, etc.). In other words, it only occurred when I got up from bed in the morning or stood up too quickly.
