I share with you all the best answers I have ever heard to the question "why fast?" Thank you to Father Deacon Michael Hyatt, who listed these four in a lecture on fasting:

1. To foster dependence on God
2. To share in the Divine Likeness.
3. To break the strongholds of sins.
4. To seek God's help in overcoming our adversaries.
