water fasting every other day is called EOD. There are some posts on curezone on the topic. It has been recommended by some individuals to do that prior to fasting as it does not alter the metabolism as much. As long as you do not binge eat on your eating days , you generally see a net loss. Before beginning that in your case , I would refeed appropriately and found out if you have some form of vitmain C, vitamin K, Iron or other deficiency or condition so as not to worsen it. Easy bruising is a symptom of many situations.
