Due to the decreased calorie intake the body depletes its energy stores which can even lead to malnutrition.So instead of long term fasting opt for healthy diets that you can stick to and maintain weight for a long term.
Fats, carbohydrates, sweets ,proteins all contain calories. Are some better than others or have an equal amount of calories? Counting calorie is a complicated business.
