So, with all of these amazing  Benefits that you stand to gain, what's not to try a 36 hours fast? Why not? Fasting is not only for people in the fitness community but for everyone that loves their health.

How would a 36 hours fasting go? A 36 hours fasting means you will fast for a whole day. i.e if you eat dinner by 7pm today, you are not to eat until 7am the day after tomorrow.

That means that throughout tomorrow, you aren't going to eat any whole food. But surely you can sip on non-caloric drinks like organic teas or Water during the fast.

This is to keep you hydrated during the fast. So, if you know you will be busy during the week, you might want to put your fasting period to weekend. That means, you stop eating by 7pm on Friday with your dinner. Then the next time you will eat will be on Sunday morning by 7am. This is how the 36 hours fasting goes.

It's not hard, you need discipline.

There are lots of true people's testimonies online that you can read to motivate you to go on your own 36 hours fasting.

It's not as hard as you are perceiving it to be. With discipline, you can do it. Think about the many benefits that you stand to gain from this abstinence. It is for your own good and for your own health.

How To Cope?

Like I said earlier, in order to keep the hunger pangs at bay, you need to sip on drinks or fluids from time to time.

You can try Black Tea, Green Tea, Unsweetened Coffee, Water and any other non-caloric fluid that you know.

Also, engage in activities that you love or better still, drown yourself in work so that you won't concentrate on the uneasiness or pangs in your stomach. It helps!

What should I break the fast with?

A lot of experts advise on breaking a long fast with foods that are easy to digest.

Such foods include Eggs, Fish, drink hot lemon water or Apple Cider Vinegar, drink lemon juice, soups, sardines etc.

Don't start with hard foods like meat. Start to break your fast by eating small by small. See Meals to eat during fasting here.

Possible complications

People that fast for too long (more than 24 hours) can suffer from:

1. Orthostatic hypotension

2. Worsening of a number of medical conditions like Diabetes, Chronic Kidney disease and so on.

3. Loss muscle mass.

36 hours fasting is very healthy and beneficial. And it should be done in moderation, of course.

Once you start to feel sick during your fast, be sure to stop. Don't overstretch yourself.
