the topic of fasting came up at we'ar and there seems to be a lot of different reasons and methods for attempting to fast.
getting into the colder months if you're anything like us there will undoubtedly be an influx of heavy, rich, warm (albeit nutritious) foods being introduced into your diet. which is great, but some of these can also leave you feeling heavy and sluggish if over consumed. like for example having curry and rice for lunch and topping it off with a couple of extra samosas... mmm samosas... well, you see what i mean.
