Ellie Goulding fasts up to 40 hours in order to reduce inflammation, the "Love Me Like You Do" singer has revealed.
In an interview with The Mirror, the 33-year-old singer said she only drinks water, tea and coffee during the fasting period.
"I do it very safely by having a purposefully nutritious food day the day before and after. ‘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," she was quoted by The Mirror as saying.
Ellie Goulding further said, "I built my way up to 40-hour fasts over time (started with 12). Fasting is a great way to give your digestive system a break."
