    One of those is more likely to leave you satisfied both upon eating it and a couple of hours later. (Go fish!)

    I likely will for with the fish.

    Even though ramen + seasoned instant mashed potatoes + spam sounds crazily and amazingly delicious, I know it is just too dang unhealthy. I will leave the ramen bombs to the long distance hikers! haha

    I don’t know how you did it. I dry heave and am dizzy/shaking without food.

    I didn't want to eat late at night, so I am actually still fasting. At 8am EST (in about a half hour) I will break the fast with some cheese and fresh fruit. I think cheese and fruit is a good combination of healthy and indulgent after a 3 and half day fast.

    I got light headed when I would go quickly from laying down to standing. But I was otherwise fine. I even worked out on the first and third days.

    The exhausting part was the self-discipline and grit I had to use to stop myself from eating. Getting food is very easy, you know.
