Why usually fasting is the way to make GOD happy?


i'm an atheist but I respect all the cultures I love to observe new rituals.But one thing that always bothers me is that in most of the religions WHY IS FASTING A WAY TO MAKE GOD HAPPY ?? I mean if u believe in god then why would DEITIES be pleased TO SEE HIS/HER FOLLOWERS HUNGRY or THIRSTY . . and sometimes this fasting can last for days. Doesn't this give a sadist touch to the concept of GOD ??

    Good one, Deborah. Being more spiritual is all about being humble (denying ego, the source of separateness and selfishness).
