    I think the answer to that is the old saying “do everything with measure”.

    Fasting for weight loss can be amazing for you, but at the same time if you fast for a long time it can be harmful.

    I believe that one day a week is a little more than it should be. My best suggestion would be a day every other week.

    Hope this helps!
