I don't know whether or not this has been shared on the forum, but after many unsuccessful attempts to do away with my hunger without eating or medication (Ha!), I finally hit on a solution on "fasting" days.

One of the visionaries says she just drinks water during the day, with maybe a little bread later on.

Guess what? If you slug back a big glass of water every time you're hungry...the hunger goes POOF! And, surprise, surprise, the feeling of no hunger lasts!

Doesn't work? Drink more water!
Get hungry again? Drink more water!

Hope this works for someone! (And that nobody tells me this approach is unhealthy. Grin.)

I haven't been a good 'faster'. Every week I tell myself 'I'm gonna do it' and I know to start out slow, etc.

I will try. I also try fasting with juice. Homemade fresh fruit juices or store bought.
