Do you keep a fast once in a while? As for me, I am very fond of eating. I have never fasted in my life except once when my daughter was getting married. It is a cuswtome in ou region that the parents must fast till the time the daughter is married off. My daughter's marriage finished at 6 AM. Hindu marriages generally take place in thr night. That was the only time I had to fast for over 24 hours. I kept having fluids but no solids. I realised I was strong enough to withstand the rigours of fasting.

Yes I fast two times a month. Its for religious purpose. Yah I know in hindu marriages, father has to fast. In some cultures both the bride and groom have to fast too during marriage. Fasting is good if properly done. It gives rest to the digestive system and helps cleanse the body. But only if done in a sytematic way.

I have never fasted and never will! I cant go more then 4 hours without having some sort of food in my body. I'm hypoglosimic and I get dizzy, irritable and sick when I don't eat frequently. Even though my religion doesn't ask us to fast, I always wanted to try the 24 hr famin to raise money for 3rd world countries but unfortunately my body won't let me. The closest thing to fasting that our religion asks for is during lent when we are asked to give up SOMETHING that we love. I used to give up candy for 40 days!
