Water fasting for 90 days?

Home More advice Nutrition & Fitness

Has anyone here ever water fasted?

I've been doing losts of research lately on fasting and tried some short versions 3 to 6 days of fast.

I've read about the man who fasted for 365 days, the jail-mates who went on hunger strikes and all the religious variations of fasting and after all my research ad person inability to deal with my current weight I've decided a 90 day fast might be my best options. But I'm looking for a second opinion.

I'm 19 years old and in the last 2 years I gained 50 pounds, right now im 5'5 210 pounds

I have such problems with food that its got to be an all or nothing type situation, I used to be able to do the slow, steady and healthy weight loss but since gaining all the weight back as fast as I could and stuffing my face and pushing my stomach to the limit, my body can't comprehend normal sizes anymore I think.

So my wish is to water fast for 90 days in hopes to lose 60 pounds.


I know its unhealthy, I know the risks, but i've become deperate and will do something no mater what, I've even looked and had a consultation for liposuction of thigh and belly. but know that liposuction is for great amounts of weight loss rather for the last 10 pounds type deal.

Any second options?

Main question:

I'm 19 years old, 5'7" and 210 pounds wanting to do a 90 day water fast. What do you think? How much weight do you think I would probably lose?

p.s. Yes I plan to exercise during the fast as well.
