12 hours is really not bad at all, if you get a full nights sleep its rather easy to go 12 hours without eating. Figure you sleep 8 hours and then are awake and fasting for only 4 hours. I do it pretty regularly now. Wake up start my day with coffee and get to work, before I know its lunch time and I haven't eaten in 12 or 13 hours.
Is your once a year Ash Wednesday? I skip lunch that day and I pretty much write the workday off after noon.
No freaking way I could skip breakfast. I typically have a yogurt or banana before I work out in the early am and then a protein shake on the way home from the gym, and a PB&J with milk before I head to work. I cant make it till 11:00 before I feel faint. I don't believe everyone can fast and still function at 100%, or even 50%. Maybe I've had a tapeworm for 35 yrs..
