Clear Excellence Sparkling flavored water

I drink only Clear Excellence Sparkling flavored water. Naturally Flavored with other natural flavors. No Sodium, No Caffeine. Would this be considered a carbonated drink?
Gloria
Wow, that sounds like a yummy drink! I just did a search on that product. I see that it is "lightly carbonated." So it is a carbonated drink. You can make your own flavored water using natural flavors like mint, lemon, orange, cinnamon, Stevia, etc. Just leave out the carbonic acid! Maybe after your Daniel Fast Diet, you'll decide you don't need to buy that product any more. Even if you do buy it again, you'll appreciate it a lot more.

How to prepare mentally, physically, spiritually

How do I begin to prepare myself mentally and physically before I begin the Daniel Diet?
Thank You,
Hazel

It would be good to begin your mental and spiritual preparation by studying fasting in the Scripture. Elmer Towns' book, Fasting for Spiritual Breakthrough, is a great place to start.

Your physical preparation will make your fast go a lot easier. Most of us don't know how our diet affects us in so many ways. The most common "negative side-effect" of the Daniel Fast Diet is the withdrawals we experience from caffeine. The headaches are terrible. You will also experience fatigue. Cutting processed sugar from your diet could cause some negative side-effects. If you start weaning yourself from sugar and caffeine from coffee and tea ahead of time, you'll experience less of the negative side effects.
