My fasting is really good after I've had dinner which is any piece of protein (fish, chicken, pork, etc.), some sauteed bell peppers and a salad plate that I assemble like: olives, cut up cucumber, cut up string cheese, radishes, baby spinach, maybe a small tomato. Sometimes I don't like an actual salad so I just put these varied things on a plate and pick them off as I'm eating dinner. Now, other family members like to do the same thing.
