    There are many forms of fasting.

    Not just depriving oneself of food. A person can fast by depriving themselves of something they enjoy. A few years ago, I had surgery and they delayed it for several hrs. I ended up fasting (not eating) for 30 hrs. So sometimes fasting is not for religious reasons.

    Prayer and Fasting

    I figured out, by fasting (with prayer), why God asks us to fast. It is all about learning self control. If we can control so basic a need such as eating, we will be much better prepared to control our other cravings and desires. Like: anger, sexuality, selfishness, resentments...

    For nutritional/body health reasons, but not religious... I've done the Master Cleanse a few times, and swear by the Sambu fasting kit. I should really make some plans to do this again in the near future. And it's funny how expensive it can be, to not eat. :P
