Daniel Fast

Preparing for the Daniel Fast

While fasting, you may not consume any caffeine, sugar, or sweeteners of any kind. You should not have anything artificial. This may cause many to experience the same feelings associated with detoxing. Most time, these effects phase out after a few days. But the best thing to do is consume as much water as possible. This should not be a bad experience. It should be an overall good experience for the mind, body, and soul.
