On Complete Fasting...

Let your mind fast from vain thoughts; let your memory fast from remembering evil; let your will fast from evil desire; let your eyes fast from bad sights, let your ears fast from wicked songs and slanderous whispers; let your tongue fast from condemnation, blasphemy, falsehood, deception, foul language and every idle word; let your hands fast from theft; let your legs fast from walking evil paths.
-St. Tikhon of Zadonsk

I fast often. It helps me focus on the Lord and to keep myself more unspotted from the world. :)
