Although Porsha Williams informed her 5.7 million Instagram followers that she was beginning a 36-hour fast, there may have been one important person she forgot to tell: her fiancé, Dennis McKinley.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta on Peacock and the Bravo App.

"Starting my #36hourfast ... let’s [see] how this goes," The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member captioned an Instagram photo explaining the hourly benefits of fasting according to The Complete Guide to Fasting. "My goal is mental clarity , feeling of well being, lower stress/tension in my body, cleanse re-Start my system."

She added: "I will be praying and practicing meditation during my short fast."

While the comments section of the post was flooded with support from friends including Shamea Morton, Dennis chimed in to note he wasn't quite prepared for the dietary change. "Damn baby," he wrote. "I was bringing home chicken tonight with extra biscuits."

Porsha is often open with her followers about her diet and eating plans, particularly after giving birth to the couple's daughter, Pilar. "Sooo I have def been taking my time when it comes to loosing my baby weight! I’m big on enjoying every step of this experience and I didn’t want to cloud it with worrying about my size. I have thoroughly been enjoying motherhood and making Pj priority number one!" she wrote in a post last year. "However lately I’ve decided to start eating healthy and drinking a gang of water and I actually can see some early changes in my body. I really don’t believe in the snap back thing for me too much or put pressure on myself... I’m just celebrating me starting to FEEL like myself again after childbirth."

While Porsha is currently giving the 36-hour fast a try, many Bravolebs are fans of intermittent fasting as part of their regular routines. Don't Be Tardy's Brielle Biermann revealed that her intermittent fasting plan includes daily Chick-fil-A, while Summer House star Amanda Batula credits her recent 15-20 pound weight loss to the pattern of cycling between periods of eating and fasting.
