Jesus fasted

Here’s a point to ponder. I always thought that the temptation to turn stones into bread came to Jesus as a result of his being hungry from his 40 days of fasting. So far so good. But, since fasting seems to be a means of spiritual strengthening, might we also look at Jesus’ fasting as preparation that he might meet his temptations in a stronger position than if he had not fasted? What do you think?
