My church allows fish and chicken

Icon of the PentecostImage via Wikipedia
I am currently doing the 21 day fast with my church, but we have fish, chicken, and tuna on our list, but is this considered a meat?
Thanks,
Name withheld

We advise people to do the fast as their church leaders have decided. In this case you may decide to avoid fish, but don't be judgmental of those who are allowed to eat it.

Normally, we avoid all animal products, so fish and poultry are not allowed. Some people are not ready to do a standard Daniel Fast/Diet. They have concerns about protein or some other issue, that keeps them from the Vegan diet required by the Daniel Fast/Diet.

For these people, we advise them to do a modified Daniel Fast/Diet, allowing eggs or non-fat dairy products. Some decide to follow the Eastern Orthodox Church application, allowing fish products.  Some decide to allow lean skinless chicken breast meat.

So your church had the wisdom to allow these foods, so those who cannot do the normal Daniel Fast can still partake with a clear conscience. It also precludes the worries of those who are concerned about adequate protein for manual labor.

Neither did I anoint myself

Lisa asks, "What does it mean when it states "neither did I annoint myself at all?"
First, let us clarify that the Daniel Fast Diet at our website is about Daniel's Fast in Daniel chapter 1.

The 21 day fast in Daniel 10 is not exactly the same as the 10 day fast in Daniel 1.

I found the answer to your question using the free download e-Sword Bible program. We studied the various free e-Sword commentaries.  
Dan 10:3 I ate no pleasant bread, neither came flesh nor wine in my mouth, neither did I anoint myself at all, till three whole weeks were fulfilled.
The following quote is from Albert Barnes' Notes on the Bible. If you cannot download the free Bible and commentaries at e-Sword.net, You can purchase a CD of Commentaries at Amazon.com.
I ate no pleasant bread - Margin, “bread of desires.” So the Hebrew. The meaning is, that he abstained from ordinary food, and partook of that only which was coarse and disagreeable.
Neither came flesh nor wine in my mouth - That is, he lived on bread or vegetables. It is not to be inferred from this that Daniel ordinarily made use of wine, for it would seem from Dan. 1: that that was not his custom. What would appear from this passage would be, that he practiced on this occasion the most rigid abstinence.

Neither did I anoint myself - The use of unguents was common in the East (see the notes at Mat_6:17), and Daniel here says that he abstained during these three weeks from what he ordinarily observed as promoting his personal comfort. He gave himself up to a course of life which would be expressive of deep grief. Nature prompts to this when the mind is overwhelmed with sorrow. Not only do we become indifferent to our food, but it requires an effort not to be indifferent to our dress, and to our personal appearance.

Let us pray one for another

The information on your webpage was quite informative. I did a Daniel fast in January of 08, and will be embarking on another fast in January of 09 for 21 days. I will encourage anyone who wants to see change in their life to seek the discipline the fast requires. Let us pray one for another. Lynnette
Thanks Lynnette!

With the love of Christ Jesus,

Like a Ton of Bricks: Daniel Fast

Good Evening Farho's,

I first want to thank you for creating such an easy to read web site that is so inviting. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Moments ago, I was on my face, hands and knees, crying out to God in prayer for the healthy recovery of one of my best friends. Exactly one week ago, he was involved in a very bad car accident that has left him unconscious though responsive, in ICU. I was praising God for the blessings he has heaped on me and my family, and asking for God's blessing over my friend and his family, as well as his salvation. That's when the thought hit me like a ton of bricks: Daniel Fast.

Is it acting in faith, in accordance with God, to do a Daniel fast for a friends recovery and salvation? An urgent reply is greatly appreciated.
Caroline
Thank you for your encouragement Caroline.

Fasting with an attitude of love and to God's glory, is always in accordance with His will. We strongly encourage you to do the Daniel Fast and to pray for the healing of your friend. Let your life overflow with thanks to God for the healing, even before it happens. Unfortunately, our timing isn't always God's timing. Even Daniel prayed long and hard for 21 days for God to move His hand, but the spiritual battle took time and the answer was slow to come. Daniel 10:13 At other times, God answers immediately.

What if you have mild hypoglycemia?

What if you have mild hypoglysemia, can you still fast 21 days, and how do you go about doing this? Tricia.
Thanks for your e-mail Tricia.

You should call your doctor's office and let them know you are considering a short term Vegan diet. Ask their advice.

Duration of Effective Daniel Fast Diet?

Please help me pray to get the job that I have applied for as a Chief Executive officer. I truly believe that this is the job that God has set aside for me for I can do all things through Christ Jesus that strengthens me Phil:4:13

I greet you all in the wonderful name of Jesus. I fasted last week for 5 days where I deprived myself food from morning and broke my fasts at 6pm in the evening. I am now interested in the Daniel fast but was wondering how long I would have to do it for it to be effective. How can I strengthen my fast for me to strengthen my relationship with God and for me to get the results that I am looking for?

God Bless you

Dear Friend,
Some people do the Daniel Fast for 10, 21, or 40 days and others for a lifetime. It will be effective, whether you see the results you desire or not. God is faithful! Even if we don't like His response to our prayer and fasting, it is the best thing for us. Trust in Christ alone for salvation and try your first Daniel Fast! You'll be glad you did.

Sincerely,
Mike

OK to continue more than 21 days?

I began the Daniel Fast on Jan 2. I'm at my 30 day mark. Is it ok to continue more than the 21 days you speak about? Are there any physical difficulties with continuing past 21 days, or even spiritual difficulties? Darla

Dear Darla,
My wife and I like to do the Daniel Fast Diet for the 40 days of Lent. We work among Catholics and Muslims, so it is important that we identify with them through the Lenten Fast.

As we've researched the Daniel Fast Diet (Vegan Diet) and related nutritional issues, we've found some issues that you should be aware of; the Vegan Diet is low in Omega 3, calcium, vitamin B12 and iron. So it might be wise to take supplements that include Omega 3, calcium, vitamin B12 and iron. Short term these deficiencies aren't much of a problem. Long term, they could be serious. Please research the Vegan Diet further for yourself. Mike

Fasting for 21 days

I would just like to say that I was surprised that the three weeks of fasting that Daniel did, ref. Daniel 10:2-3 has not been mentioned, but I do love your question and answer section. I am fasting for spiritual growth, and I know I will receive it when I humble myself before him. But this is the reason so many choose 21 days. thanks for your time and the wonderful informative site!
