Food Protocol for Fast

By increasing fluids during the Daniel Fast, you are flushing out toxins and teaching your body that it no longer needs to store water. Drink hot water with lemon slices throughout your day, especially before eating, to help reduce fluid retention. Be sure the water is filtered and free from chemicals.

Hunger pangs!
So often when we have hunger pangs, we rush for snacks or something that will make it go away. But some little insights about hunger pangs may have you making a different choice.

Hunger pangs actually mean that your body is using stored fat in our body. So if you want to lose some weight during the Daniel Fast, then welcome those hunger pangs. Dehydration often sends a message that “reads” like hunger. So instead of grabbing a snack . . . go for a tall glass of filtered water!

Finally, hunger pangs often pass after a few minutes. So when you sense hunger . . . wait it out.

Although we have heard about the importance of reading the label,to find out what ingredients were included in the prepared food we consider before purchasing or eating,  still today many do not regard this protocol before food consumption. It is so important to read the  “READ THE LABEL”

If you are on the Daniel fast, lets develop a  habit  to READ THE LABEL so we can learn the ingredients included in the food inside the box, bag, can or jar. We are not so concerned about the nutritional list, but we are very concerned about the ingredients to make sure there are no sweeteners, dairy products or chemicals included in the food.

Remember, this is a fast!
It’s important to keep in mind that we are on a fast, which is restricting food for spiritual purposes. So while we can eat as much food as we want and any time we want — we want to keep in mind that we are fasting.

I encourage people to stick with three modest Daniel Fast meals and one or two small Daniel Fast snacks. The average-sized adult should drink about 1/2 gallon of filtered water each day.
