    Water fasting means abstinence from all food and drink except water.
  • Fasts can be intermittent or may be partially restrictive, limiting substances or particular foods.
  • In a physiological context, fasting can refer to the status of a person that has not eaten or to a Metabolic state.
  • Metabolic changes occur during fasting.

Diagnostic tests are available to determine a fasting state.

Ex: a person is believed to be fasting after 8-12 hours have elapsed since their last meal.

Metabolic changes from the fasting state start after absorption of a meal usually 3-5 hours after eating.
