The Daniel cure!
Jumpstart Your Healthy Lifestyle with Fasting. The Daniel Fast is a 21-day period of extended prayer and fasting used by hundreds of thousands of Christians every year. Based on the fasting experiences of the Old Testament prophet Daniel, some foods are allowed and others are restricted. When you use this method of fasting for 21 consecutive days, you focus more of your attention on God, examine yourself through prayer, and you eat meals made only with vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts, seeds and healthy oils, and your only beverage is water. You eliminate all chemicals, processed foods, sweeteners and stimulants from your meals. The result is a whole being experience as you engage your spirit, soul and body in this temporary fast. Now here is the amazing part of this practice – when you enter into a spiritual fast, you are inviting God into your everyday life. And then He can release His wisdom and power and work with you for change. During the Daniel Fast you eat nutritious, whole foods that give your body the fuel it needs to restore and heal. Plus, it seems miraculous, but cravings disappear, blood sugar levels move toward healthy levels and cholesterol counts head toward the healthy range . . . all through a short period of prayer and fasting.
