Goodluck for the 40 hour famine, i can't do it. I don't have the will power to not eat (probably why my weight loss is painfully slow)
Will you be sucking on barley sugars during it or can you not have them any more? What are you goin to do during the 40 hours to distract yourself from hunger and to prevent yourself friom getting hungry?

I did it once as well with a friend, we had a sleep over and all so we could each other accountable the whole time then went to pizza hut at the end of it for all you can eat, i think we started eating an hour early. I found we talked about food alot more to.

I haven't done the 40hr famine since I was a teenager and it was actually a lot of fun, we had a big sleepover at a friends a couple of girls got the dizzy spells and had to end teh famine and all the other girls had the barley sugar but I felt this was cheating so I didn't. My friends parents cooked up a huge feast for us after the famine but after not eating for that long we all found it hard to eat much at all.

Anyway good on you and good luck! :)
