40 Days of Fasting

by Dwayna Litz
(New York, New York)

I am enjoying the benefits of fasting and want to share my journal. I have decided to live without TV, too, during this time, AND I AM GETTING SO MUCH ACCOMPLISHED WITH WORK AND FOCUSED.I know this is good for my body, but it requires as much, if not more, mentally than physically. I tried doing it on my own recently but didn't make it past 5 days, so I am checking in now for accountability and support. As a Christian, I realize that Jesus fasted and "some things only come about by prayer and fasting," like the Bible teaches. I know a very healthy and beautiful woman here in Manhattan who used to work as a model, and she went on a 40 day fast and has been telling me about her energy levels soaring. It is NOT "starving yourself" like people think...After studying the benefits of fasting, I am convinced this will be great for my body. Thank you for this forum. I will be in touch about my progress. I really don't need to lose weight but am going through a stressful time and need to lean on God more, so I am looking forward to my fast.

Enjoying the Fast NEW

I am doing great with the fasting, not just for health but to spiritually focus on Bible study and listening to sermons, which FEED my heart as a Christian. I am feeling lighter. It is wonderful! I have a best girlfriend in NYC who is doing it with me, though she is eating raw foods only for 40 days. I am juicing and drinking a lot of water and trying to stay away from too much TV and not eating. I love how God created fasting for our overall health and well being. It is true when the Bible teaches that some things only come about through prayer and fasting.
