youngwoong :  Is your plan to not eat for 3 months?! This is dangerous. Yes, you need to stop. The symptoms you’re describing is your body compensating for lack of fuel, which is what food is for your body. 

If you want to get healthier for your wedding, see a dietitian or nutritionist or doctor to talk about nutritious, well-balanced meal options and fitness plans. Fasting for three months is clearly not okay.

FYI – what you’re actually doing when you deny yourself food is slowing down your metabolism…counterproductive. Eat lots of small healthy colorful meals.

You have three months. Why not lose weight a healthier way, with some exercise and diet changes? Fasting just seems so dangerous and counterproductive, especially with your symptoms. Your body is meant to be fed regularly, and you’re putting it in starvation mode.

Are you at least drinking nutrient shakes to replace your electrolytes and blood sugar? You can’t just straight up starve yourself. It’s not good for any of part your body, including your brain. Be careful!

This type of fasting is not for you, then. Eat sensibly instead.

Find out how many calories you need to eat to lose weight, track your calories, stick to a little less than the recommended amounts of sugar and sodium (skip sodas and salty snacks, basically), and drink a sensible amount of water each day.

Start there and tweak as you go.

How did you make sure your body was ok with fasting? (“Hey bod, I’m gonna starve you for a while, that cool?”) 
On the chance that this is real and not a troll.. Your symptoms are telling you something  – listen. Idk on what planet you’re living that you think starving your body of nutrients, water, electrolytes is healthy? And that you’d be able to function?

Girl, no. You should have started dieting and exercising in a healthy manner before now if it’s this serious to you.

Go eat something! You know what will look worse in your wedding dress than a few extra pounds? A CORPSE BECAUSE YOU STARVED YOURSELF, PASSED OUT AND SMACKED YOUR HEAD ON A COUNTER AND DIED.

This is not a healthy way to lose weight. You are doing so much damage to your body. If you want to lose weight the start eating healthy and exercising. There is no reason to ever starve yourself in an attempt to lose weight.

If you have no appetite then you need to see a doctor and figure out why.

What on earth are you doing? If you want to fast, look at the 5:2 diet where you eat 500 calories on “fasting” days. You also do not do two fasting days back to back, its not good for you. Otherwise, eat sensibly and exercise. No wedding is worth starving yourself for.
