I have fasted up to 3 days for religious reasons. I absolutely hate it. The first day isn't too bad... but after that I was completely miserable. All I could think about was eating. When I wasn't thinking about how hungry I was, I was thinking of what I was going to eat when I stopped fasting.

And a caution. My husband has also fasted. He was in his second day and started feeling a little "strange" and sweating a little when he wasn't cold. Since my parents are diabetic, we checked his blood sugar, it was in the low 70s. He was hypoglycemic If he would have persisted, he could have ended up in the hospital or worse. My blood sugar remains normal when I fast, but you don't know what will happen. It is not something I recommend for weight loss. My husband is generally a very healthy person with no health problems at all.
