What’s normal? Google doesn’t know much about this kind of fast.July 24, 2018 5:57 pm at 5:57 pm #1563961
Don’t eat any beef not before or after a fast. Don’t eat any fish before which will make you thirsty. For Tisha B’av we make a layered with eggs potato dish.July 24, 2018 5:57 pm at 5:57 pm #1563956
It depends what you eat. It is more important to watch what you eat before and after to minimize the symptoms.July 24, 2018 5:57 pm at 5:57 pm #1563931iacisrmmaParticipant

If you have headaches it may be from caffeine withdrawal. And then you’re officially a “coffee addict”.July 25, 2018 7:17 am at 7:17 am #1564130ChadGadyaParticipant
On erev and motzei yom kippur it is a mitzva to eat meat. This has never caused me any poblems.July 25, 2018 9:03 am at 9:03 am #1564169
ChadGadya, I did not say don’t eat meat. I said don’t eat beef which is hard to digest.July 25, 2018 9:04 am at 9:04 am #1564167Avram in MDParticipant
I have occasionally felt ill in the day or two following a fast (fatigue, malaise), and I realized that for me it had little to do with the food that I ate before or after the fast, and much more to do with hydration. The summer fasts especially can be very dehydrating, and I have found that I continue to be dehydrated for a day or two after the fast. So I drink water more frequently for a few days, and that largely solves the problem. Also, I’ve found that eating too fast and drinking too little water when breaking the fast can also lead to gastronomical upset.
For sure! I step down my caffeine intake in the days before Yom Kippur, Shiva Asar bBTammuz, and Tisha B’Av to try and avoid the monstrous headache. For the other fasts, I can wake up and get a cup of tea or coffee in before it starts.
