The Daniel Fast for Health and Weight Loss
The purpose of spiritual fasting is to consecrate (set aside) a specific period of time to draw closer to God and to hear from Him. A powerful side benefit of the Daniel Fast is the improvement in health that most people experience.
The Daniel Fast is a plant-based eating plan with the only beverage being water. When the bodies that God designed and created are fed the good quality foods He created especially for it improvements in health result. The high fiber in the fruit, vegetables and whole grains cleanses the body and improves digestion. It’s not uncommon for cholesterol levels to drop, for blood sugar levels to balance, for weight to be lost and for a general feeling of well-being to be experienced.
Anytime you make a significant change in your diet or exercise, consult your health professional. Also, if you have special health needs consider adjusting the eating plan to meet those requirements while maintaining the other restrictions for the fast.
“My co-workers and I fast in January each year. We discovered this jewel of a book and we have shared it with many. Recently Susan Gregory revised the book to include more recipes, of course, we had to have another copy! We now fast more times during the year, I even apply it during the Lenten season. This book changed the way I feed my body and soul! I am excited to write this review because this book is one of the many books I will always treasure! If you are thinking about getting it, do it, you will be blessed!”
