Will Fasting for One Day Ruin My Metabolism?

Question by :]: Will fasting for one day ruin my metabolism?
I’m addicted to food and I hate it. I binge and I binge and I’m starting to gain weight. I just want one day where I can just relax and not think about food or eating and to start over. However, I’m afraid to fast for a day because I’m afraid I’ll ruin my metabolism; but, if I give myself an excuse to eat (“well, I should just eat normally today.”) I’ll binge.

No, fasting for one day will not ruin your metabolism. You would have to go multiple days with no eating or very little eating before it starts to harm you. However, I’m not sure if you should do that. You might get very hungry by the end of the day and binge, which is exactly what you’re trying to avoid. But, if you think you can handle it, one day of fasting will not hurt you. Many people fast for religious purposes, and they are just fine. Just make sure you drink plenty of water. Good luck!
