#CatholicHipsterDebate: How Do You Fast?

Welcome to the latest in a long line of Catholic Hipster Debates!

Today's topic: Fasting!

There seems to be as many ways of fasting as there are members of the body of Christ. 

Some prefer to follow the "bare minimum" rules published by the USCCB, others cut out absolutely everything for a 24 hour period, and others fall somewhere in the middle. 

So, how do you like to fast? Bread and water? Two small meals that do not equal one regular meal, and then one regluar meal for dinner? Nothing at all for 24? Nothing from sun up to sun down? Some other variation? 

Fasting, as we all know, is a mega important tool in the spiritual battle, helping rid us of vice and instilling virtue. The question is: How do we like to carry it out?
