I sometimes forget to eat for a day.
To be vulnerable is needed most of all, if you intend to truly fall apart.

I do it yearly for Yom Kippur. Every now and then, I don't eat in order to either save money or because I forget.

It's not that hard. I myself have been known to forget about eating quite often.

It's normal for me to go up to at least 2 days without eating.
I don't get hungry often. I use to want to be a pro boxer and part of training is shrinking your stomach and keeping as much energy as you can for long fights.
Maybe thats where I got it from?
#15
I've done it for both religious and personal reasons.

Best thing is to do 4, 6, and 12 hour fasts before attempting to do a full day. It might be also worth trying a 'no food' fast with just plain water the first time around too.

Also, if you are hypo/hyperglycaemic like me, be EXTREMELY careful.
#16
I didn't eat for a day once, eating the next day sucked. I barely could keep anything down.

Another tip, start your fast at lunch time and end at lunchtime the next day, its still 24 hours

I thought the point of it was that you ate before the sun rose and after it set?

Or fast 24 hours total. Break it out over 24 days.

Fasting just makes you hungry. Going without sleep for long periods of time is much more interesting.

if you're doing it for charity, 24 hours is all they ask for so its suitable for charity fasts.

Okay, thanks for the clarification. I was thinking about Islamic fasts and sort of applied it to every fast without thinking.

My friend at work is doing it. Apparently he can't think about sex or look at girls either it's killing him.

I've done it expecting some supernatural epiphany. All I got was hunger.
Because that's all you focused on.

There is a real physiological benefit to fasting, eating a big meal activates your sympathetic nervous system (makes you sleepy). The act of digestion is actually a lot of work for the body depending on what you eat. A lot of your organs that are normally in idle mode kick on and start secreting enzymes to break down the food. In other words your body is much quieter when there's nothing in your stomach. The crankies usually pass after a few hours because the body naturally turns down the thermostat on the metabolism. At that point most people report feeling very calm, centered and focused.

Your friend is trying to do the impossible compadre. There's a reason why men want to hump anything with a face, boobs, and a certain reproductive feature: Survival of the human species!

Parasympathetic

But I agree with your post. I used to eat a big-assed Chicago pizza slice with three beers and wonder why I fell asleep in my 3 o'clock lecture.

Is your friend avoiding fellatio for lent, whilst his co-workers and friends place bets on when he will crack and try to lure him to temptation?

...What are you talking about?

When you fast, you can only have bread and water, if you're referring to the standard Jewish fast, TS.

I'm pretty sure, at least.

well you might as well be slaughtering little African kids if you have food and choose to fast.

Uh no, in Yom Kipor you cant drink or eat or anything, 25 hours of not drinking or eating.

I've never tried it. When I got really sick this one time, I only ate jello at lunch time for a day.
