Fasting during Sibket can include skipping breakfast and not eating anything until 12:00 noon or 3:00PM, and eating only vegan foods when meals are consumed.  

According to the website below, "fast generally implies one meal a day to be taken either in the evening or after 2:45 p.m. with total abstention from meat, fats, eggs and diary products." Instead cereals, vegetables and other type of food devoid of fats are eaten.
