I mean do you stop your self from consuming food and drink during the day for some reason or another. I am asking this because I am a Muslim and now on my 26 day of fasting for this year Ramadan fasting. I have non Muslim friends that fast for different reason. Diet, detoxification, feeling guilty for the poor, want to see how it feel like to fast..... so do you fast?

Yes, I do fast. I'm a Muslim and I fast for religious reason. I started fasting at a relatively young age and now I get used to it. I don't feel extreme hunger or thirst because I take lots of liquid (milk, juices, water) during sahur and iftar so I don't suffer from dehydration. I live in a tropical country and my lips aren't even dry. Once you know the right nutrition, you'll stay healthy during fasting. Eid Mubarak!

I know that Muslims fast during the time of Ramazan. I have a friend who does all the fasting and prayers on time. I am a Christain and I am supposed to fast during the lent time. But, I am not doing it now a days because I have to go to work and I will be tired if I don't have enough food. Lent is for 40 days, but I try to maxium for atleast two weeks during the time. I fast on good Friday for sure.
