    I’m not sure if it counts as a fast, but I tried a “Reboot” for 7 days.
    This meant that for 7 days I only drank water and instead of meals I drank
    about 1 litre (per meal) of home pressed veggie juices.

    I did this for a number of reasons, but my main reason was for pure
    experimantation on IF I could do it, and how it would feel.

    The end result was great, I became a lot less bloated, lost about 8 kilo’s
    and got much higher energy levels and slept better.

    Unfortunately I was so happy with my results I went straight back to my
    normal food habits, gained all the weight back within 2 months and the
    other problems..

    So, I’m going to try a different approach this time around. I will be
    having 3 Juice days a week (no food just water and juice) and eat “normal”
    the other days to see if this is something that would give the benefits I
    got during my 7 days juice fast but with a more maintanable lifestyle.

    Fact : People who fast for religious reasons are fools. As if an all
    powerful being would exist, why would it give a fuck about what you eat?
    How about focusing on not killing each other in the name of religion first
    and then practice whatever else ritual you tell yourself god commanded.

    What a surprise. Religion is always about suffering so the whole fasting
    things makes so much sense. Really the whole thing is very selfish and
    highly egotistical if you thought you were so much more important then
    everyone else just because you starve yourself.

    It’s funny how the christian’s who comment get downvoted and spammed with
    atheistic comments but the muslim comments all get upvoted as if Islam and
    Christianity are drastically different religions.

    I have been doing Intermittent Fasting several times a week for roughly two
    years. I fast usually 16 – 17 (6:00pm to 10:00am) hours and make sure. This
    helps me break food cravings, clear out my digestive system, and I actually
    get almost a high when I do it. Give it a try!

    Religious fasting is such a nice scam think of how much food a country can
    save during Ramadan. less food means more civil unrest which could lead to
    overthrowing of a King or regional lord back in the day. scamming people
    into not eating and say it’s for religious purposes is great way to quell
    civil unrest before it begins.

    Well the reason we fast this month is mainly for religious reason, since
    the REAL moslem teaching is all about compassion, (the moslem you see in
    the news who carry bombs, and affiliates themselves with terrorist
    organizations is a FAKE moslem). So basically by fasting you feel the
    condition of poor people, understand their hardship, and be more
    compassionate to them.

    I’m Muslims and I am writing this will I am fasting …
    So we are Muslims fast for whole month
    From sunset to sundown
    Although it’s seems to be hard thing to do
    But we Muslims find in this month the spirituality for the whole year
    And it’s sad evry year when the Holly month of ramdan end

    who would ever fast water?

    Oddly enough, after a few days of fasting, I don’t really feel hungry even
    if I watch someone eating.

    I’m trying to build up my upper muscle mass, so fasting is not appealing to
    me if my body starts to eat them. That being said, I think a lot of people
    could stand to learn more about portion control. Eat till you’re
    satisfied, not til you’re full.

    When I was religious, I was going to fast for 3 days.(I did a lot of stupid
    things when I was religious) But before the first day was over, I felt
    lightheaded and sick. So I stopped, can anyone tell me why I felt this way,
    while my friends didn’t.

    Mormons are taught to fast once a month (every first sunday) and give
    whatever money we would have diminished by eating, to charity. I’ve been in
    my church for about 4 years now and have never fasted, but I’m definitely
    going to next time.
