Question: How Much Weight Can I Lose In A 3 Day Fast?

Will I lose weight if I stop eating for 3 days?

You will likely lose weight on any diet if you eat less than 910 calories a day.

But losing 10 pounds in 3 days is both unlikely and unhealthy.

To lose just 1 pound of body fat, you need to reduce your daily calories by about 500 a day for a whole week.

That’s giving up 3,500 calories over the course of 7 days.

Can I fast for 3 days?

Post-Fast (1 to 3 days)

This is because eating a large meal after a fast may cause uncomfortable symptoms. Instead, break your fast with a smoothie or smaller meals. You can start introducing larger meals throughout the day as you feel more comfortable. The post-fast phase is especially important after longer fasts.
