Ellie Goulding Fasts for Up to 40 Hours at a Time, But Does It 'Very Safely'

Ellie Goulding reveals she fasts for up to 40 hours at a time, but wants to assure worried fans that her method has been “okayed by a doctor pal.”

“I do it very safely by having a purposefully nutritious food day the day before and after,” the 33-year-old entertainer said to the Mirror. “On the fast day, I drink high-grade electrolytes and a LOT of water (plus tea and coffee). Fasting is safe and beneficial unless you are diabetic or have serious health issues.”

“I built my way up to 40-hour fasts over time (started with 12). Fasting from time to is a great way to give your digestive system a break,” Ellie added. “It helps blood sugar control, and helps fight inflammation – the mother of ALL health problems.”

Ellie recently revealed she has an addiction.
