The Daniel Fast in a Nutshell

 

Daniel 1:1-14 (12-14) "Please test your servants for ten days, and let them give us vegetables to eat and water to drink. Then let our appearance be examined before you, and the appearance of the young men who eat the portion of the king's delicacies; and as you see fit, so deal with your servants." So he consented with them in this matter, and tested them ten days. NKJV

 

Dan 10:2-3 In those days I, Daniel, was mourning three full weeks. I ate no pleasant food, no meat or wine came into my mouth, nor did I anoint myself at all, till three whole weeks were fulfilled. NKJV

 

Dan 10:12-13 Then he said to me, "Do not fear, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard; and I have come because of your words. But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; and behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left alone there with the kings of Persia.  NKJV

 

 

The following is a GUIDELINE - pray for personal direction…

 

 

Foods to include during a Daniel Fast:

-all fruits, all vegetables, all whole grains (brown rice may become one’s staple), all nuts and seeds, all legumes (peas and beans), all quality oils (olive, canola, peanut, etc), water, soy, tofu, various seasonings…

 

Foods to avoid on the Daniel Fast:

-all meat and animal products, all dairy products, sweeteners, all leavened bread (anything with yeast), refined and processed foods (artificial flavorings, additives, white rice, white flour, sugar, artificial preservatives), fried foods, solid fats (shortening, margarine, lard), carbonated beverages, energy drinks, alcohol…

 

 

REMEMBER: this is a fast not a diet.   One must increase time in the Word and in prayer.

 

 

Dan 1:8 But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king's delicacies, nor with the wine which he drank; therefore he requested of the chief of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself. NKJV
