So i'm on my school's wrestling team and i'm trying to get my b/f as low as possible. A friend of mine went 3 days without eating anything but water. I've heard mixed messages about fasting. Can some give me some solid advice plz.

You will not lose much fat, just water and glycogen which will come back as soon as you start eating again. Any more than 3 days is just plain dangerous, hell I wouldn't do that for a single day.
Conclusion? You will lose a bit, but very little fat. I'm too busy to dig up sources someone else may want to help

Without energy (proper nutrition), your body will use muscle for energy. So you will lose muscle & strength, some fat but mostly muscle. Fasting is actually one of the worst things you can do to our body in the long run.Leave me alone let me just live my life....

A 3 day fast should be fine if you feel well throughout the 3 days. It pretty well cleans your body out. Like the guy above said, anything more than 3 days is just bad. However, peoples went longer for religious reasons.
Some links for you to read:
If you want more Google 3 day water fast, tons of links to great information about them. You may also want to look into a 3 day juice fast as well, and see which one is for you if you're gonna do it.I'm red because a mod negged me for posting Raven Riley n00dz.
