They made a huge f****** deal about the importance of a 24 hour fast a few years ago. Here's a link to one of the talks I remember:http://www.lds.org/ensign/2009/04/fasting-with-power?lang=eng
There was another one, too, that was given at conference not so long ago. Does anyone remember who gave it? In any case, their point was that during a 24 hour fast, you're supposed to eat your normal dinner, then skip breakfast and lunch, then eat your next dinner 24 hours after your previous dinner.
Fasting sucks. There are a few advantages to being lightheaded and spacey at church, though. (Obviously not if you're pregnant, diabetic, nursing, or have another medical issue.)
