Does anyone know how long we're suppose to fast for?
I've heard for 24 hours and I've heard for two meals.

Comments:

both are correct    
"If you eat dinner at 6:00pm and fast breakfast and lunch and then eat dinner again at 6:00 the following day you have fasted for both 24 hours and 2 meals"

"I think she is asking do u have to fast for two meals or full a whole twenty four hours.

Two Consecutive Meals    
"From LDS.org: "Proper observance of fast Sunday includes going without food and drink for two consecutive meals, attending fast and testimony meeting, and giving a fast offering to help care for those in need."

"If, through our unrighteous choices, we have lost our footing on that path, we must remember the agency we were given, agency we may choose to exercise again. I speak especially to those overcome by the thick darkness of addiction. If you have fallen into destructive, addictive behaviors, you may feel that you are spiritually in a black hole. As with the real black holes in space, it may seem all but impossible for light to penetrate to where you are. How do you escape? I testify the only way is through the very agency you exercised so valiantly in your premortal life, the agency that the adversary cannot take away without your yielding it to him. "
