10 Ways to Stay Motivated When Fasting

Set a short-term goal with a reward.

Choose a goal that you can measure and attain in a relatively short amount of time, and after you reach that goal, reward yourself with something that isn't related to junk food, such as a massage or the purchase of new workout clothes.
