-to remind myself that the majority of world, and an increasing number of people in the US, don't have enough to eat.
- to remind myself how pervasive the availabilty of food is, and how we are saturated with food advertising designed to get us to eat more. When you are denying yourself the pleasure of eating your senses become incredibly atuned to any reminders of food.
-and lastly as a self discipline exercise.

BTW it isn't a very good weight loss technique, at least for the 7 to 10days I do it. I will lose a lot, but most of it comes back once the bowels fill back up and the body readjusts to a normal hydration pattern.
I like your reasons!
The closest I ever came to fasting was doing the Master Cleanse Diet.

Baked cauliflower
Baked homemade fries
veggie burger with a 1/2 slice cheese (had to share with my dogs!) covered in finely chopped lettuce, tomato, onions, mustard

Kind of a funny...I was going to have cool whip with fruit and sf/gelatin free jello later, but the whole container of frozen cool whip disappeared right off my counter!

My newest rescue dog must have gotten it because I found my dingo/pit laying on the couch, in the dark, with the empty container! I had to lol because she was probably set up to take the blame and I bet she didn't even get a lick of the cool whip!

Just finished a turkey sandwich (real turkey, not that chopped/pressed/formed crap) with Gruyere on multigrain bread. Nom.

I had Brussel Sprouts with Bacon, (it's so good I had to put a link to the recipe)- hamburger patty with pepperjack cheese, tomato & light mayo on a bun. Oh - and Yoplait Chocolate Mousse Whipped yogurt. *I can't stand the taste of yogurt, this is as close to it as I can get*
I'm trying to get my protien up without risking my fat and carb ratios - this isn't as easy as it looks.

A protein drink made with water and soy milk powder, and protein powder mixed in a blender with a banana.
365calories 6.4grams of fat /52 grams of carb /28.3 grams protein

Now, I have on a flat grill an arepa which is very popular in Colombia.

I just started eating them recently when I realizewd that carbs were my friend and these are some of the best carbs that I can get. The one that I am heating up is a 6 grain arepa 168 calories .6 fat / 31.5 carbs /5.1 protein

I am going to spread cream cheese all over it!!
Some diet, huh?
cream cheese 2 tblspn 80 calories 8 grams of fat/ 0 carb/ 2.5 grams protein

Good thing I ate before I read this! I just finished 1/2 small eggplant and 1/4 small head of cabbage, both tossed in tablespoon canola oil, salt and pepper and roasted for 30 min. Lots of flavor and very filling. Dessert was green grapes.
