I was watching TRL yesterday for a brief moment. Beyonce Knowles came on and they began speaking of her weight loss (I think for the Pink Panther movie..could be wrong). Point being, Beyonce said that she went on a 2 week fast because she needed to lose weight very quickly.

When I think of a fast, I imagine someone not eating and drinking only water and/or tea.
Perhaps they are taking some type of vitamins as well.
But, I doubt that this is what she did for 2 weeks (because she was after all speaking to a teenage audience).
I personally think it's irreponsible of her to do such a thing, because kids can be very impressionable.

This left me wondering, what are the different meanings behind the word fasting?
