I have to say the Daniel Fast truly was a breakthrough for me. It makes you truly look at God and what He has for you and your life.Spiritual preparation
I can say that spiritually you really need to pray and seek God seriously
before you start. Be in your earnest moments with God. Tell Him audibly that You are ready and expecting a mighty and swift move from Him. You don't know, going into this fast, just how serious God is taking you.Physical preparation
Physically I can say that if you drink caffeine or are a coffee junkie
you need to definitely start about a week and a half before the rest of your fast by starting your beverage switch. If you still have any body side effects you can soften by a simple half pill of Tylenol or Excedrin
. The fast asks you not to consume caffeine. So you're okay, if you can do the pain reliever before you start you fast.
Also, I feel that before your fast if you are a heavy meat eater
I would suggest looking at your meat/protein alternatives
before you start too. It will not present such a shock to your body. I myself ate a tremendous amount of foods while on the fast (twice as much as normal) and did not have any sort of problems.Results
For my results, I found my skin was more clear
at the end of the fast. My digestion
processes saw a tremendous improvement. I lost 14 lbs
(This is not a weight-loss plan). I woke up refreshed
and had so much more energy
. I found out that a lot of the processed foods I previously consumed were a hindrance to my health to rather than a help.Difficulties
I always was craving something sweet
.I found a whole wheat tortilla, peanut butter and bananas made a great snack burrito
. Do not bake with Stevia
, its horrible. LOL!
I hope this helps you and guides you. God opened doors for me soon after I finished the fast, and has kept on blessing me since I did this, please take this fast serious, you won't regret it ever.
