Fasting vs daily recommended nutritional requirements/targets

If one is fasting, one obviously isn't taking in any nutrients. So how does that work vis a vis daily recommended nutritional requirements/targets?

Pillage, then burn.

    I'd encourage you to reflect on a month's worth of data to determine where nutrients could be lacking (it might be worth taking this info to a dietitian).

    You raise an important point though... Fasting increases risk of nutrient deficiency and if done, needs to be carefully planned to ensure micronutrient deficiencies do not develop.
