Modified Daniel Fast


The Daniel Fast is a plant-based partial fast. It is based on the Prophet Daniel when he was under the rule of Babylonian kings for their personal service. Daniel recorded three occasions of fasting, though he likely fasted many more times since he was a man of God.

Daniel 10:2, 3 is where we find the model for the 21-day Daniel Fast. From this passage, a guidelines have developed over the years, primarily by Christians who use this as a form of fasting. The Daniel Fast has grown in popularity over the last 3 or 4 years as it’s been championed by Pastor Jentezen Franklin of Gainesville, GA.

No Pleasant Food: This would include breads, sugars and sweet foods.

No Meat: All animal products are restricted on the Daniel Fast. That includes meat, poultry, fish, and dairy products (milk, eggs, cheese, butter, etc.)

No Wine: This restriction, coupled with previous fasts where Daniel drank only water (which is typical for biblical fasting), is where today’s Daniel Fast finds its roots for water only. Fruit and vegetable juices are acceptable.

About / History

This is not my own diet, it is actually based in the Bible. Here though, I have modified it a little bit, so that I can have one bite of anything I want per day (that could be anything that's not a part of the diet), and for Thanksgiving and Christmas, I will eat small portions of whatever dishes we have - this gives some incentive to the diet :)

Ukrprincess's top tips

1.when going grocery shopping, stay on the outer limits of the store, that's where most of the produce is, and you won't be tempted to buy any of the junk in the center aisles.
