I personally do not fast but many Indians fast regularly and there are different types of fasts. I do not consume any cooked food after sun set and if I feel hungry I may just eat some fruits. Mostly, I restrict myself to just two meals a day and may have some nuts / dry fruits for a snack in between meals.
Fasting is a very integral part of the Indian way of life and members of all the religions follow their own fasting rules and regulations.
For some time now, I have been contemplating fasting for a full 24 hours during one day every week and am much enthused with what I have just found here.
When I start, which I will after I consult my doctor the next time I visit him, I shall inform my readers about what happens.
Do you fast?
