      Fasting from sins is a good idea, a blessing is sure to come of it.
      Pope Gregory I was well known for his alms to the poor, and he gave quite generously of the riches donated to the Church by the wealthy people of Rome. Everything from money to land was given to the poor in some fashion. He made clear to his subordinates that their duty was to relieve the distress faced by the poor.

      He ordered his clergy to go out into the streets to find and care for the poor in person.

      I believe fasting can be for varying amounts of time. Breakfast means to break the fast so we fast, usually, for a period of time every day. I am diabetic and still fast some. It hasn't effected my diabetes but then mine is not out of control at this time.
