hmmm..... don't do that. You should fast for shorter periods and make 
sure you can duplicate the period within a couple of days.

READ the HOWTO's on profiling basal rates as well as the sections in 
Pumping Insulin on doing this as well.

Basically you only skip one meal at a time and delay another.

i.e.  skip dinner, test night times
skip breakfast delay lunchtest mornings til about 2 pm
skip lunch, delay dinner and check afternoon and evening (eat late)

Go for the nights first. If you are having a night time low it screws 
everything up for the rest of the day
