DIET OR WATERY FASTING

As the name implies, the water diet or water fasting is characterized by a diet that consists only of eating liquids. In other words, a total ban on swallowing solid foods. You are only allowed to consume water, broths, or herbal teas. There’s even a diet called “Drunkorexia” that encourages you to indulge in alcohol as long as you don’t eat anything.

This diet thus shares the first two disadvantages of the types of diets previously discussed, i.e. a strong deficiency and muscle wasting. Being deprived of solid food, the body will then compensate for this dietary restriction by drawing energy from its protein reserves.

If fasters wonder why they feel as though they are not hungry in the first few days, it is because the increased level of acetone in the blood reduces the feeling of hunger.

According to Hélène Tinevez, “over a day, the young watery one, it passes; over a week or two weeks, as we often see, it becomes absurd”. She also explains that by following this type of diet, “a beginning of muscular melting appears, including in the cardiac muscle and there can be problems with tachycardia”. She also adds that “the kidney function is working at full capacity to eliminate the excess nitrogenous waste due to the degradation of muscle proteins”.
