    Fasting for 16 hours each day doesn't seem healthy to me. At least not in the long term. It seems like it would put undue stress on your body. I suppose it wouldn't be as bad for someone with a high body fat %, but for someone who's at a healthy weight, it just seems bad.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    I have a different time of fasting. I believe it is Nov. 5th to Dec. 21st. Will check as it gets closer.

    And Catholics have Lent right?

    Any other fasts for other religions?

    I'd try it, but my blood sugar tends to crash very quickly if I do not eat regularly (as in three meals a day). The one time I did fast like that, I nearly passed out the next morning and had I not been able to quickly eat something with small sugars in it, I probably would have gone unconscious...and I don't know what would have happened after that.

    Fasting when you feast later doesn't help with weight loss. Mom always gets so annoyed during Yom Kippur because she always gains weight.

    No water? Does it depend upon how strictly people follow tradition? I know that for Yom Kippur health plays a big role in what we will or will not do, at least among the moderately religious. I'm not sure what the Orthodox do. My grandma is forbidden to fast, and kids are not encouraged. Further, my family all drinks water because dehydration is a big problem, but we don't even have the issue of having to fast during the summer sometimes. Can't people get quite sick?

    Then, at night, you can do whatever you want? Or are there still limits on what is (in)appropriate?

    Fasting is fun. Makes you feel less crowded inside...gets your mind off food and helps you think clearer.

    No restrictions once the sun sets as long as it's within islamic boundaries.

    Girls can reach puberty at 6. They reach puberty much faster then boys.

    Seriously, girls are considered ready long before they are.
