please help..ANY advice is appreciatedd!?
i was planning on fasting for 5 days, but today was my third and i decided to stop so i dont kill my metabolism. if ionly drank a few drinks of apple juice past 2 days and i just decided to have a bite of celery and green tea, what do i need to do so i keep losing weight and not gain anything from fasting??
like how much do i need to eat for the next few days and how much do i need to exercise?

Here's the thing on dieting.
#1 you need at least 16 ounces of liqiud per day.
You can get along with no food for 30 days but 3 days without water and you can die
#2 your body will take over if you don't feed it (Ketose).
The idea is to start turning FAT into SUGAR
That means reducing the input level but NOT shocking it.
YOu need 2,000 calories just to breath
Give your body 1,800 and it HAS to get the 200 extra from somewhere else, usually FAT
You COAX your body into this (Atkins SHOCKS the body into this and it takes 30=45 days to work)
EAT less, that is the secret
Drink normal, but REMOVE SUGARS
That is NOT to say don't eat a peach, but DON"T put coke or pepsi or ice tea with sugar into your body
REMOVE refined sugars
Drop it a little
In six months your body will EAT ITSLEF UP
Eat the eqivalent of 3 TV dinners a day Banquest $1 dinners
That's ALL you need along with water
Your body will then do the rest over the next 6 months
Get RID of excess
NO CHICKEN SKINS OR BREADING just PURE WHITE MEAT
GET rid of PORKS and limit BEEF
Limit FATS to 1 tablespoon two times a day
That means TUNA with 1 tablespoon MAYO
Try and limit BREADS
Put that TUNA over lettuce and tomatoes
Whole or canned with NO SUGAR
Use Apple Cider vinegar with no oil or a dash of OLIVE OIL
Switch to OLIVE OIL for cooking
Use butter instead of margerine
Breakfast Oatmeal with some rasins and honey
Special K with strawberries or bananas and low fat milk
A can of unsweetened GRAPEFRUIT
or a REAL GRAPEFRUIT and some toast with butter or peanut butter
Lunch, Yoshina Chickenbowl, small, skinless
Dinner some Tuna or Turkey slices over a salad and maybe some bread with butter
Apple Cider viengar and a tad of olive oil
The portions can be LARGE on this one
EAT ALL the lettuce you want
Have HALF A HEAD
A few slices of turkey meat or a full can of white tuna
YOu can have a 2 pound meal of this
BUT no more than 1 tablespoon MAYO or a tad of Olive Oil
You can have some oat bran bread
If you EAT RIGHT
You can EAT A LOT
When hungry, have an APPLE
it's 8-16 ounces of weight, it fills you it is NO mORE than 120 calroies and it provides SUGAR to keep you going
Fruits can be your friend, just not in total EXCESS
Lettuce can be your friend
EAT ALL YU WANT
Just no Ranch or Italian
Apple Cider Vinegar and a tad of olive oil
At least 24 ounce per day
WATCH for hidden calories
COFFE CREAMER, nasty!
10-20 calories per serving
Get rid of the sugar in coffee
Switch to honey for tea
Peanut butter on celery HEART HEALTHY
Yes you can have some RED WINE with dinner
Just no more than 2 glasses
Eat ALL the skinless chicken you want so long as it is broild or poached and white meat
Just avoid the POTATOES, PASTA
Give half of the POTATOES or PASTA TO HIM
Live a little, have some SKINLESS chicken Parmasan with Fettucinie and GIVE HIM most of your noodles
Just shove it into his plate
For him it's almost as good a sex!
Have a taste
NO MORE PIE ALAMODE
Have an apple, peach, pear instead
Have a WATERMELLON, MUSK MELLON, CANTALOPE, HONEY DEW dinner
It's TOTALLY SINFUL, but highly acceptable
BUT NOTHING ELSE, except maybe one or two dry slices of Turkey for protien
That means you open the pack and pick a slice or two and just eat it
A diet is doing WITHOUT bad things, eating GOOD THINGS and doing them in SMALLER PORTIONS
You EAT LESS
Atkins is correct
You CAN eat a pound of White Turkey meat
JUST NOTHING ELSE
Not until snack time
You can put a POUND of TURKEY on a POUND of lettuce and eat it with APPLE CIDER VINEGAR and a tad of olive oild and a 16 ounce bottle of WTAER
THAT IS A DIET, beleive it or not
You just ate 2 pounds of food
But you had LESS calories than a Big Mac with Fries
And LESS saturated fats
LEECHED beef (run it in a colender under water)
Broiled or poached chicken without skins or breading
ALL the lettuce you can eat
Buy a BOX of the stuff
EAT IT ALL IN ONE DAY
but NO RANCH, ITALIAN or FRENCH dressing allowed
Only APPLE CIDER VINEGAR and olive old tad
Dieting is about LEARNING what to eat and what NOT to eat
You can EAT more ON a diet than you ever ate before, provided you KNOW what to eat and what not to eat
You can eat 10 pounds a day of food and lose weight
It's about know what to eat and what NOT TO
Eat a whole CAN of Salmon, just only use onioins to seaon it and make sure you clean it in water not oil
Eat 16 ounces of WATER TUNA, just NO MORE than 1 TBLS of mayo
Put it on 1 pound of lettuce and put apple cider or wine vinegar over it, some light seasoning (pepper), some onioins, a tad of olive oil
That's 2 pounds of FOOD
Along with 16 ounces of water
that's 3 pounds into your tummy and LESS calories than a burger and fries
You'll NEVER be hungry if you diet right!
BUT you have to give up BANANA SPLITS
Colonel Sanders Secret Recipe
Jack in the Box secret sauce
ALL of that is a killer
ONE ounce of JACK's secret sauce is 8 ounces of WHITE WTAER TUNA MEAT
1 ounce of gunk = 8 ounces of protein
HALF the calories in a BIG MAC comes from the BUN and the SAUCE
BUN and SAUCE=two patties and cheese
DO YOU NOW SEE where you went wrong in life!
Imagine eating 16 ounces of WHITE TUNA or sliced white meat TURKEY with 16 ounces of LETTUCE a whole tomatoe, some cucumber and water
And having LESS CALORIE INPUT than your friend who is having a Colonel Sanders meal deal
That's what a breast and leg and cole salw and coke
That's about a pound and YOUR are having 3 pounds
AND you are losing WEIGHT in the process
AND being HEART HEALTY!
YOUR 3 pound lunch is not even 700 calories
Thier 1 pound lunch is 1200-1500
WHO is the SMART ONE
WHO IS FULL after lunch!

the thing with fasting is because you don't eat much your body drop water weight not fat so as soon as u return bak to eatin normal again you will put any weigh you have lost back on plus maybe a bit more.
so you should really just eat healthy and exercise instead
try eating small meals every 3 - 4hours to keep your metabolism up
and exercise for at least 30 mins a day

Fasting is a really really, really bad way tto lose weight. Your metabolism does slow down, plus any wieght that you lose while you're fasting you gain right back.
Your best bet is to eat small regular meals throughout the day. They should be balanced: protien(fiist sized) carbs(fist-sized agian) fat(tablespoon) and a fruit. You can do lower fat to lose wieght but not to low. That's bad foor your body and iit will slow your metabolism do\own

are you trying to get sick? Your body wont like that kind of loosing weight and will start to rebel after awhile. My nutritionist says everyone needs at least 30 carbs in our body's to keep the body healthy. If you look at what you eat, that's not a lot of food. If you fast you wont keep the weight off for long and you may gain back more in the long run. Seek your docs advise for a sensible diet. Good luck
