  1. Hi,
    I’m female and underweight. I usually do 16:8 twice a week. Anything more and my weight drops. I’ve once tried to do a 72h fast, but my body started aching after only 27h. I had to lie down, I couldn’t do anything anymore. I eventually had to eat something as even a salty bone broth didn’t do the trick…. I don’t know why my body can’t handle longer fasts, but I think anything beyond a 24h fast would be destructive in my case.

  2. I loved the podcast it was very informative and I do struggle do that one day fast however have been doing breakfast fast for a while after listening to this I am encouraged to do more thank you Dr. Jockers
