    Thanks for sharing the lessons. Here are a few of my lessons, then!

    It's easier to fast completely (just water) than to have even a bite of anything, or a spoonful of juice, etc. It looks like food "wakes up" the stomach and then I feel hungrier.

    Hunger comes in waves, like sleepiness. My waves are about 20 minutes long, with about 1 hour break between them. Drinking more water during the wave helps.

    Reading, light computer work (sorting email) or meditation seem to be the easiest pastimes while fasting. Some jobs are easier and some are harder, overall - I have a list of things to do and a list of things not to do, in my mind. I can't do math or anything that requires similar concentration and thus similar levels of sugar consumption while fasting.

    I stay away from all food-related activities while fasting. I also stay away from shopping of any sort, even not for food. In general, I try to avoid shopping while even slightly hungry, or I tend to buy too much.

    Thanks, Maria!
