QUOTE from Dr Fung (emphasis mine):
“What can I take on fasting days? ALL CALORIE-CONTAINING FOODS and beverages are withheld during fasting. However, you must stay well hydrated throughout your fast. Water, both still and sparkling, is always a good choice. Aim to drink two liters of water daily. As a good practice, start every day with 8 ounces of cool water …
NOTE – What does it say?
Fasting is NOT about decreasing calories. The absence of food over a period of time creates changes in how our body processes nutrients. So a snack defeats this process and may cause the body to reset all over again.
ALL CALORIE-CONTAINING FOODS and beverages are withheld during fasting.
On off switch … not a volume control
Aim to drink two liters of water daily.
STRATEGY: Aim to drink two liters of water daily.
What gets my attention?
Do I understand the need or problem?

Do I understand how to apply that strategy?
What questions do I have for the experts? What might be the answers?
Who needs to hear this?
What do I do next?
