Thank you! This is my first time fasting. I thank you for this web page. My prayer life and my relationship with God have changed. My church is participating in the Daniel Fast. We are doing this for 31 Days. This webpage has helped me. It gave me good ideas on what to eat and not to eat. I did not know what I was doing, so I decided to do some research on the fast. This web page gave the best resources. Thank you again

This is a great support site. I am beginning a 21 day Daniel fast today. I have been able to complete this type of fast before and it really delivers breakthroughs! I am praying and fasting this time for spiritual growth, my future husband, and a school building for my students. I will shout for joy when my God delivers. Thank God I have a God who hears and answers our prayers.

Our church started the Daniels Fast today for 21 days. Many of the younger generation are doing this for the first time, and had a lot of questions. Your website was a great help. Thank you. The quickest way that I can explain to someone what to eat and not to eat it this: If came from the earth, and its in original form, you can have it. That means all fruits, veggies, whole grains, legumes, seeds, and herbs. You can take and cook from those, make juices, etc.... Its a guideline that we have used many times, and it makes things easier. When people ask about oils and spices, I tell them that if you can make it out of the products listed about, then its ok. That means spices made just from herbs, no additives, 100% natural pressed oils, unrefined, salt is ok, its from the ocean(part of the earth). We exclude all dairy products because they come from animals. So thats how we go about it. Galina Orlando, FL

I will be restarting a Daniel Fast on Monday. I have to restart because I just read what the actual guidelines for the fast were. I had been eating fried vegetables, white rice and some other no-no's. thus, I need to cut those out and restart. I am fasting for insight, wisdom and direction. I also hope that I would lose some weight. But weight loss isn't the focus. Gerald
Thanks for your note and encouragement Gerald. Don't be to hard on yourself about the fried vegetables. You were fasting with what you felt to be the "rules". I'm sure there are as many official rules for the Daniel Fast as there are people fasting. We have no idea if Daniel fried his vegetables or not. It is a good idea to avoid unhealthy fat! The line "margarine, shortening, animal fat, high fat products" doesn't have to exclude good oils like olive, peanut, and colza. Your friend in Abidjan, Mike Farho
This is the first time i am going to fast and i am nervous about it. The whole church is going to do the Daniel 21 day fast. i am used to eating anything and everything so i am not sure now ideas of what to eat. Could you please send me some recipe or something to help me complete my fast. I dont want to lose out. i am starting tomorrow 1/8/2007 so i need some ideas. Thank you
Google for vegetarian menus and recipes. You should find much good stuff to eat. We have a Lebanese stew (make it without the lamb), salad and a dip you can try out at http://www.Farho.net/lubi
My favorite food is a special natural peanut butter recipe on bananas! I mix natural peanut butter, bran cereal, ground flax, almond butter and peanuts together. Your friend, Mike Farho
Hello, I found out my pastor had our congregation start the Daniel Fast on 1/2/07 - I didn't know about it since I wasn't there on New Year's when it was announced. I plan to start it Tuesday and am glad your website details everything that I questioned. Suggestion: Ezekiel Bread, which contains Organic Sprouted Wheat, Organic Sprouted Barley, Organic Sprouted Millet, Malted Barley, Organic Sprouted Lentils, Organic Sprouted Soybeans, Organic Spelt, Filtered Water, Fresh Yeast and Sea Salt may be an even better alternative to anything containing flour. I look forward to writing with a praise report. MH
I am starting a 21 day fast today and at first I thought that this didn't go with my belief of fasting. Since fasting for me was to abstain from any type of food for a specific amount of days, but now reading more about it, I am happy about it. I pray that the Lord Guides me in the direction I need to take in my life. God bless you all. FD
I will be starting the 21 day fast today. Its interesteing how the Lord leads you in advance and prepares you to make this committment. I have done fasts in the past and I know from experience that you change by God's power in work in you. I'm excited to see what will come to surface and the changes that I'll make with this fast for 2007. Teresa

Thanks Mike, I am currently on Day 5 of a total fast and after day 11, I am going to start a 10 day Daniel Fast. The Lord is Good and I am breaking so many chains that are binding me. All of my sin keeps coming to the surface in my mind so I have the ability to repent and forgive, above all the Spirit keeps telling me to stop assaulting my mind and my flesh. I spent so much time consumed with so much including myself(selfishness). I realized I put so many false gods above The God Almighty. I will stay in prayer about the other foods and I want to thank you for your help, may the Lord shower you with his abundant BLESSINGS! Your Brother In Christ

Thanks for your insight and help, I am a pastor in South Carolina (USA) and our church is beginning a 21 day corporate fast this coming Sunday (01-07-07). I have given them a copy of the food listings and people have had some questions (including me). Thanks.

I just started my Daniel Fast today and was unclear on exactly what to eat and not to eat because different people have explained it differently to me. Now that I've read your article, I have much more clarity on how I should proceed to claim the blessings of 2007. Thank you for the information and may God greatly bless and enrich your ministry to continue to give light and guidance to the body. 2007 is the year of completion and abundance. May this ministry be abundantly blessed to do all that is ordained for the kingdom.
