    In the future, buy a dozen eggs instead of a pizza. I find a good broccoli omelet tastes better than a pizza anyway, plus it comes with 100% less guilt! You could even put cheese and tomato sauce on/in it if you wanted.

    I dunno how people on here fast for days at a time. I buy into a lot of what I read on this site, but that much fasting seems crazy to me. But I used to be anorexic, so I guess I'll always be skeptical of purposeful meal-skipping, no matter what the valiant reason may be...

    You're not eating until MONDAY?????? My God, the do you do that?
    It's not about 'willpowr'.....he just said he's a student, without money until Monday. Open the refrigerator and stare into an empty box ---- that's not willpower --- that's unfortunate but I've been there, too.

    Drink plenty of water. Tea helps if you can get it. I don't think I could fast after that, because grains make my blood sugar go all wonky. I would probably pass out at some point. I'm sure you can still get the benefits of the fast, but it'll be far less comfortable than if you had eaten a high-fat primal meal first.
