If you are reading this, I encourage you to begin with a one-day fast. I fast the Jewish day, which is from sun-down to sun-down, which is a true 24 hour period. This is easier to start off with as you are not experiencing a full day without eating. If you decide to juice which is popular with modern fasting and I don't agree with at all, please do not use fruit juice as it will cause you to feel worse in the long run because of the spikes in your glucose level. It is very healthy to give the digestive system a rest so the body can focus on repairs it needs to make instead of on digesting food, as long as you do not have any serious health issues. People with health issues can fast from something else, like no electronics for a day.
Tip: For this particular book I would suggest purchasing the hard copy vs. the kindle edition that I purchased. You will need to highlight a lot.
This book is designed to target a biblical and spiritual understanding of this Christian discipline rather than give tips on fasting; however, in Towns book, "The Beginner's Guide to Fasting", he writes more about the physical aspects of undergoing a fast. I recommend this book for a more thorough knowledge of "how to" fast and what to expect physically. May God bless you as He has blessed me!
Fasting has definitely changed my life for the better. I credit Fasting, Praying and Giving about the Tithe (Matthew 6) to my luxury car, my many vacations including one to the Bahamas and many other this happening that were impossible for me to do in my own strength. The Daniel Chapter 10 Fast (as opposed to Daniel Chapter 1) is the easiest however as I have built up my Faith and seen countless results I basically do Liquid And Vitamin Fasts now.
If you are ready to go to the next level of your life than this is how you do it.
