I don't know that there are many male fasters out there. Go to the water forum. There are a few guys I know of on there who fast semi-frequently, but they are against fasting for weight-loss: Mike and Andrew. I don't think they're fasting now though, but you could always check. I think that the girl who responded to your message is right on though. We girls are undoubtedly more emotional, but we're just as capable of fasting as any guy.
