If you read my first post in this thread you would've known I know "fasting is not just about food".

also when you think about it you cant have 1.2 billion people not eating for 24hrs......fasting is for a Holy Month......if you like to fast 24 hrs then thats even better sacrifice but Allah is not asking you to do so....
I only knew a fast to be a required 24 hour abstainment of food and liquids until I was introduced to the concept of so-called "fasts" which did not require that.

There's people who on the regular don't eat until the early evening. In general I fail to see the true sacrifice of a "half day fast".
