I've fasted without food for up to 10 days before but without water and sleep?!! That takes major discipline.

I could skip breakfast & lunch but past 1pm I have to eat & drink or else I will faint and if not I will feel like I am dying. Starvation & dehydration are 2 scary things I fear of hehe. Sleep...no way could I be able to live for a day without it. Even if I have a full 8 hours of sleep I still get sleepy lol...& I am impressed that he chanted the sutras for 100,000 times. When you don't eat, drink & sleep, you don't any energy to do anything, you just want to sit still because if you don't you will lose your energy fast & get more hungry and thirsty, but he did not, it is like believe in the unbelievable things....And when you do not have those 3 essential things for so long, most likely you will not be sane to even talk but he chanted...very impressive!

I once had to join my friend for fasting around one month... Its not because I want it but I was force due to respect for others and anger... I once didn't eat and drink for 12 hours and I need to walk and stand for a long time due to broken lift... After 3 weeks I started to had gastric.. Doctor gave me medicine but I didn't take it... Until now I kinda afraid of not eating.... It was really scary experience for me... Now I gain more weight than before...

I can go a few days without food but with no sleep, no way!!!

But recently I almost died from not eating. I had to walk 10 hours straight lifting heavy totes. By the end of my 10 hours, I was completely drained. I slept for 16 hours. No kidding.

I'm already starving by 10am no matter how much breakfast I had before that. I can't imagine doing this, hands down to him.

Lol...yea every 2-3 hours you will need something to eat & drink haha.

Lately I have been skipping breakfast & ate lunch a little late than usual so I had digestive issue since Sunday, today I feel a little better. I seem to never learn lol.

I wonder if this monk have any issues after he finished this ritual?

Yeah, I have to eat every two-3 hrs or else I get moody. My portions are very small though but I constantly eat lol. If I'm in a meeting all day or for hours on end, I munch on nuts or dried fruits.

You are one busy lady. Your pattern of eating & drinking is good. Eating big portion for a few times a day is not good.

And those nuts, they stop hunger fast lol. I eat almonds & they are hunger savers lol.

Trader's Joe and Sprout are like my best buddies. They have like the best varieties of salads, dried fruits, and nuts.

i really admire those who can fast and meditate. I tried meditation once and all sorts of work or school related stuff just throw a party in my mind as if I was schizophrenic or something lol.

I have not been to Trader's Joe. I usually shop Sprouts once a week. 90% of the times I shopped, they were always out of nuts that were on sale, gosh it was frustrating every time >_< lol.

Meditation is not easy at all. I need to get back to it.

Lol my diet is so complicated I'm very picky with "American" food, I can't eat salads (very rare) or nuts/almonds, and then I'm stuck with horrible school food, so by the time I get home I'm super hangry, and my siblings never leave any food for me, so then I just gotta do the ramen noodles because I can't cook. Lol, I just can't eat small portions throughout the day, but I've been limiting my plate space and I've noticed that I don't eat as much as before which used to be two scoops of rice+side dish. ^_^ Can't imagine not eating my mom's cooking when I move out tho.

I am an easy eater. I am usually the person who finishes the leftovers in my family. What can I say, I don't like to waste foods, if they are still edible & no one wants to eat them anymore then send them my way lol.

I am also opinionated on foods, will comment on them & will request what dishes to be prepared lol.

There is a saying like if you don't waste foods, Heaven will help you because you did not waste Heaven's gifts to mankind. I live by this saying & besides that I usually think of "what if I do not have foods to eat like some people in the world or a famine going on" so that helps me to not waste foods too.

It just irritate me when a person could throw all of the other foods away in a to go box after he/she took out a piece of egg roll out from the box because they just want to eat the egg roll only. Oh and at buffets, I only take a small portion of each kind of foods so that I could eat other kinds of foods without wasting.

My eating pattern is so ridiculous. There is about one week of the month where I eat and eat until I literally want to throw up. I get so hungry but even if I am I not I still want to eat. I know it's not healthy that way but my hormones make it hard.
 
I like to eat healthy but could never do it. I craved for hot dogs and pizza like there's no tomorrow. Once a month I can eat a whole package of hot dogs by myself. I know it's not good but seriously it's hard to not give into the craving lol.
 
I am not a salad girl...but if I do eat salad I like to make mine with just lettuce, green apple, roasted pecan nuts and organic olive oil balsamic dressing. I do eat a lot of grill chicken with Chinese BBQ marinated sauce.
