Ernice's Daniel Fast Healing

A coworker came to work and announced that her church was going on a 21 day fast and it would consist of Fruit and Veggies and she challenged us to participate. I thought she must be losing her mind to think that I could survive for 21 days eating only fruit and veggies. Nevertheless, I did it. At first, my food tasted really bland because I wasn't using any seasonings and I wasn't creative with my menu. After we compared our menu's, they laughed at me and said I could use seasonings for my food and they offered some suggestions. I didn't want to lose cool points with the Lord and be less anointed if I broke any rules. Well, this turned out to be one of the best things that has ever happened to me. I've lost 30lbs, my blood pressure and cholesterol is normal and I've maintained for 2yrs! Ernice
Thank you for sharing your encouraging testimony!

Is Daniel Fast a Diet?

Listen, the Daniel fast is not a diet. No fast is a diet. Careful... Joy
Thank you Joy, you raise an important question.

We use the term "diet" in the general sense meaning "the food you decide to eat." We never promote it as a weight loss diet, like the cabbage diet. In Daniel 1:15, Daniel and his friends were "fatter in flesh" after only ten days! :-)

Many more people write us to say it is not a fast, because you are allowed to eat food. They don't understand that there are partial fasts and total fasts. So we say Daniel Diet Fast to help these people understand that this is a partial fast.

However, most people do lose weight on the Daniel Fast Diet, because they are avoiding the junk foods that made them fat. If you remove only white sugar and high fructose corn syrup from your diet, you will consume hundreds fewer calories per day.

Every 100 calories you eat require one mile to walk off. An average soda is 180 calories. That means after a 12 oz. soda you need to walk an extra 1.8 miles. Very few people do, so they store the fat on their bodies.

We promote the Daniel Fast Diet as a partial fast for spiritual breakthrough. One blessing or spiritual breakthrough for many is self control. It results in weight loss, because of their rejection of junk foods on a permanent basis.

The original Fast by Daniel in Chapter 1 didn't help him lose weight, but this anti-junk food Daniel Fast by Rev. Elmer Towns does seem effective at helping people shed those nasty pounds that stick to us. I lost 25 lbs in 2000, by walking three times a day for 20 min each. Learn more healthy habits at http://Fit.Farho.net It is our fitness website.

Let's pray: Heavenly Father, we thank You for our friends who are doing their best to say no to the flesh and its appetite for junk food. Jesus, You know what it felt like to be tempted. Be our strong tower of refuge, when we are tempted to blow it and eat that food we should avoid. Fill us with the power of your Holy Spirit, so that His delicious fruit of love would flow from us and surround us. Deliver us from temptation! In the Name of Jesus, our risen Savior and Lord.

Randall's Daniel Fast Preparation

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.

Want to eat cleaner

Praise God! Thank you for having this site it's a blessing. I'm want to do the Daniel Fast, I just heard of this. I also want to eat "cleaner" no meat. I was wondering does anyone ever say how much weight they've lost? I'm 5'6 and 150lbs. But I want to fast without telling anyone. I don't want to deal with it. If I do fast and look sick or my eyes sunken in I'll have to tell on myself. Please let me know. I want more of God and I feel that this is the starting point for me to start my "walk" with God. Adriana
Thanks for your encouragement Adriana. The Daniel Fast is an excellent way to improve your walk with God and enjoy spiritual breakthrough. We think it is also a healthy diet. Some folks have written to say they lost a lot a weight.

If readers lost weight doing the Daniel Fast, please leave a comment so we can hear about it. You don't have to log in or start an account. Just enter your name or use anonymous.

Thanks,
Mike
