When it comes to choosing a time to start, there is no right or wrong time. Notice what your body is telling you and select a time that suits you, ideally a day when you will not be distracted by important appointments.
- Especially if you are fasting for the first time, a good time to start could be a weekend, as your body can then concentrate entirely on changing your metabolism.
- People with experience in fasting often like to start their fasts during the week, as day-to-day work distracts them from any temptations. If you start on a Monday, you can look forward to eating solid food again by the weekend.
