What is the Daniel Fast?

The Daniel Fast is based on the prophet Daniel’s fasting experiences as recorded in the Bible. The fast is a biblically based partial fast. According to Daniel 1, the results were: (v. 17) learning, skill, wisdom, spiritual understanding, favor, and better appearance. (v. 19) In Daniel 10, the fast resulted in answered prayer and spiritual insight. (vv. 11-12) The great things about the Daniel Fast is that you are not limited to a specific amount of food, but rather which foods you can eat.

Three Key Components to the Daniel Fast
Only fruits, vegetables, nuts, legumes, and whole grains.
We won't stop you from fasting those nuts you live with, if you want.
Only water or natural fruit juice for beverages.
No Mountain Dew code red is not "natural fruit juice." We don't care what the label says.
No sweeteners, breads, meat, eggs, or dairy.
Including pre-blessed Jesus chicken. Sorry CFA lovers. Your points can wait.
