Doubtful. I do a full 24 hour fast once a year and that means nothing crosses my lips at all. Sure I am hungry but I have energy, the only bad part is since I am a coffee fiend I normally get a headache from lack of caffeine and even with that I have plenty of energy.
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.
