That depends on what type of diet you had. I went through something similar in HS myself. I would spend lunch walking around for fear of being in any one place. However, my diet then was a high carb, low fat junk diet. That type of eating pattern is not very fasting friendly. Now that I follow a higher fat, lower carb diet, I find that I can go long periods without eating with little discomfort. I only felt for dizziness and weakness toward the end of the day yesterday. I'd say the experience was a good one. Today is my eat day and tomorrow I'll try fasting once again.
