Two take-aways:

1. Self-control. Fasting is more about self-control more than it is about not eating food. Food was meant to serve us. Too often we get that backwards. Remember that what you are learning is that you do not need food as much as you think you need.

2. Feed your mind, not your belly. When you find yourself thinking about food, busy yourself with a project. Find something that will demand your focus–to keep you from fuzzy thinking.
