I did a 66hr fast 2 weeks ago. I’m interested in doing another extended fast, yet not quite as long. Only thinking it will be 40 hrs or so. Is it too much for my adrenal gland to be doing two extended fasts so close together? Will it be stressing my body out to much?
I think 2 weeks is plenty of time in between. According to Dr. Fung’s Complete Guide to Fasting, doing extended fasts of more than (I think) 5 days should only be done once a month. I just did an 86.5 hour fast last week, ending Sunday. I had a full day of eating Sunday, and went back to 16:8 on Monday and today went about 20 hours because I just wasn’t hungry. I highly recommend his book if you haven’t read it already!
