I want to know what would happens to my body if I drink only tea with milk and sugar for 5 days without no water or food intake for fasting? Would I get diabetes and acidosis?

Hello and thank you for submitting your questions!

Unfortunately, there is little to no scientific data on the effects of this form of fasting so I am unable to tell you what exactly will happen to your body at this time. The current studies behind fasting are still very unclear, and the effects can be potentially harmful to your health. Unless you currently have (or had a history of) a related health or medical condition, you most likely will not develop diabetes or acidosis from this alone. However, I strongly encourage you to consult with your doctor before trying any forms of fasting.

What you eat and drink is only one part of a healthy lifestyle. Consider other factors that can benefit your health along with your diet, such as physical activity and stress management.
