    This is the clearest passage on fasting, and it mostly tells how NOT to fast:

    Mat 6:16 Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

    Mat 6:18 That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.

    I think the main point is to do it with the right attitude, seeking God in submission not trying to force Him into something.

    I love those passages that Jon posted. I would suggest that you spend a few days prior to starting the fast in prayer, seeking from God what would be the best to do. Make your mind up about what you are fasting and stick to it from the word go, that way, when temptation comes, you can see it for what it is and overcome it. All the best
    God bless
