Actually, I don't know what is the relationship between these products and fast.

Of course, some people will say that its ingredients is fast and I don't object but in pope Shenouda ІІІ 's book "Spirituality of fast" (that I wish you all read it) speaks about this subject and illustrate that these foods in case of its ingredients, it is fast.

If I ate it, I would be formally fast. But, spiritually I'm not, because in this way, I give myself everything I love.

From the other hand, if Man during fast turns to be an eater to anything that does not contain protein. So, he will be vegetarian rather than fast.

And we don't want to take fast's forms but its spiritualily.

Of course, I don't interfere in the way of fast. As it is sure that everyone has his spiritual guide.

My brothers, we are still at the beginning of fast so, be careful not to turn all our thought towards food and how can we replace it. But the point of fast is to humiliate our body  to reach the feelings of weakness and need of god.
