What is Fasting?

Fasting is abstaining from food. There are different kinds of food fasts:

1. Absolute Fast

The absolute fast which is abstaining from food and water. Esther did this
kind of fast. Not recommended for more than 2-3 days. (Your body must
have fluids after a day or two)

2. Normal Fast

The normal fast which is abstaining from all food and just drinking water


3. Daniel Fast (recommended)
The partial or Daniel fast which is abstaining from certain foods. Daniel
fasted from all tasty foods and meats and ate only vegetables, fruits and
nuts.

4. Benedict Fast
The Benedict fast established by Saint Benedict of Nursia, Italy (525AD),
where you eat only one meal a day.


5. Liquid Fast
The liquid fast which is abstaining from all solid foods drinking only light
liquids like fruit and vegetable juices. Drinks like milk shakes would not be
included in this type of fast.

Important Note: All fasting should be done wisely. If you have a
medical condition that would be adversely affected by fast you should
check with your physician about how you could fast and modify the
fast accordingly.
