Some people may have an easier time than others. My partner can literally forget to eat, or go an entire day without eating because he's playing games or doing something on the computer. I don't know how such things are possible. I have metabolic issues and a family history of diabetes, so I cannot go more than 13 hours (7pm-8am for example) without eating. During the day, if I'm stressed, I get shaky much faster, so I try to eat something like an apple and a handful of nuts to tide me over until a larger meal.

The only time I would ever fast is if I have an upcoming doctor appointment that requires me to do so. Due to my health, it wouldn't be wise for me to intentionally skip meals. I'm a bit underweight as it is.

No, not without medical instruction from a doctor. A lack of food, much less, fasting, is pretty much my "summoning spell" for migraines. Any benefits from fasting isn't worth the pain, to me.

Nope.

No, sorry, I don't fast. It's a stupid concept. We are made to eat things, not starve ourselves.

I "fast" because I'm too lazy to get something to eat. Food isn't that enjoyable so I'll go 24 - 36 hours without eating often

I've only fasted on the rare occasion that I'd been advised that I may need surgery. Thankfully it turned out that I didn't need it so I had a little feast. I'm not counting the times when I just wasn't well enough to be eating.

It's not so much fasting as forgetting to eat... *sighs* I work to much.

no, if you are health 100% of the time then fasting is redundant.

Fasting is a big topic.

More than plain starving and malnutrition. Certainly not eating for a while could prove beneficial. Though no miracle cure for losing fat rapidly.

At most I've experienced 72 hour fasting, during which I had both good moments and bad times (hunger). Good thing is that your senses become more pronounced and at times you can concentrate really well. Down part obviously is sudden reminders to eat, which will make you lose focus. Certainly fasting regularly or intermittently can activate your body to use fat as primary source of energy (ketogenic diet). This diet has some noticeable health benefits.

It suits obviously some people and lifestyles better than others.

No, I like food. Why would I stop eating it? 3-4 meals a day ftw.
