Cheers. I was more curious as to why you get up at 0400 'to fast' given most of us don't eat while we sleep :)
Clearly if you were a Muslim you'd be getting up for prayer. Are you getting up to have breakfast? That hadn't occurred to me.

Yes that's correct we have some breakfast and fast from 05.00 to 18.00 no food no water.
We started out going until 19.00 but felt for us 13 hours was enough commitment.
The fast is broken with a glass of water and a small snack and a hot drink.
We then have a normal evening meal nothing excessive.
Would love to know if we have any Muslims on here and how they do it.

Ahh!!...... Forget what I asked you the other day Phil. Sorry, I thought you were fasting 100% of the day every day!!?? That is when people report their mental state change. I thought it was incredible that you were going for so long without doing it before!!

Well that's now completed for me and no side effects and I certainly haven't caused unnecessary cost to the health system here in France so I can't be middle class as it was suggested.
Now have some serious work ahead in moving house and setting up my workshop.
Peace and Love to all x.
