Jess: Fasting, like low carbing, teaches you to recognize the difference between real hunger and false -- the latter being when you eat because you're bored, because it's a certain time of day, etc. Do I technically "fast" all the time because I typically eat only once a day? I have no idea. For the most part I eat when I'm hungry, but when I decide to skip a meal for whatever reason, I know it won't make me keel over or even feel bad -- heck, after the dentist last week I went over 48 hours until I felt comfortable enough to chew
Give me a friendly Christian any day over an asshole atheist.
