I agree, though all the males in my family do it. I only found out last night that they can't eat fleish tonight, so now I need to make them supper....

We only do it after Yom Kippur
We have honey cake and challah and honey first
Then chicken soup, chicken etc

I thought it was Ashkenazi who have lactose intolerant, not Sephardi

Ask your rav. I was told I could as long as there were no actual pieces of chicken in it.

I think the male digestive system works different LOL . My husband is hungry and wants to eat a proper meal. I personally can't stomach more then a peice of cheesecake/chocolate.

I was going to start a thread just like this!

Even the males in my house don't eat meat after a fast - ever.
I was wondering why people can't just wait until tomorrow for fleishigs? I guess different people enjoy different things

Every body is different. Just because you have a delicate stomach-- or a mind that rebels at the idea though your gut may be perfectly
capable--doesn't mean your way is "right" and there's something wrong with those who don't have the same limitation.

A lot of this is cultural. Look at all the national cuisines that feature meat at breakfast. When being fleshik is not an issue, why not? After all, breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

Who said anything about right or wrong? Some of us just can’t fathom such a thought.

And many more people can't fathom doing many of the things we take for granted. Like...taking in no food or water for 25 hours on one of the hottest days of the year or climbing five or six flights of stairs on our day of "rest." Some can't fathom not eating shellfish, others can't fathom praying for the return of a form of worship that involves slaughtering animals, and still others can't fathom eating animal flesh at all.

We all think what we do is normal, sensible and logical, and can't imagine why anyone would do things differently. It's all cultural.

I really think you’re overthinking her intent. I think it’s more “you haven’t eaten for 24 hours, how is it not too heavy?” That’s all. Plain and simple. Why do people complain during the days? Because dairy and parve is not as heavy as meat, and therefore not as filling. So now, she’s asking how can one eat something so heavy after not eating for so long? How are people able to do it?

My family prefers to break our fast on fleishig food. I find chicken to be much lighter then many of the cheesy dishes people eat after a fast. Grilled chicken with a salad is light. Or chicken soup with the chicken is a full meal without being heavy.

My guess is that it's more about the convenience of serving left-overs rather than preparing a new meal. I really couldn't have sat down to a meat meal. But then again, we're not allowed to until tomorrow so it's not an option anyhow.
