I honestly can't understand for the life of me why anyone would have a "morning" fast. It doesn't make any sense, no offense. If you don't eat in the morning, it will seriously slow down your metabolism - and when you eat later on in the day, you have less time to burn the calories off. So, if you're "morning"-fasting for weight-loss purposes...Well, you should really consider doing a afternoon-night fast rather than a morning fast; as cutting out breakfast is dangerous to our metabolism & energy-levels. I used to fast constantly, but it was because I had an eating disorder & I would force myself not to eat in order to lose weight/keep weight off. It really was not for the right reasons at all, but I did enjoy the "lite" and "pure" feelings I'd get while on the fast.

I do fast at times. The most I have done without getting sick is 24 hours. I have done this many times. Should try for 36 hours, one day soon. But I do enjoy food!
