TYPES OF FASTS

Below you can find information as to what types of fasts are known to body of Christ. 

 

FULL FAST

Drink only liquids – especially water. On this type of fast you may also take in clear broth and 100 percent fruit and vegetable juices in order to maintain your strength.

 

PARTIAL FAST

There are many options for partial fasts. The most frequently used example of a partial fast is found in Daniel chapter 10. The Daniel Fast is a fast from meats, sweets, breads and any drink, except water, for a specific time period (Daniel 10:2-3). The easiest way to think of this fast is eating only vegetables and fruits, and drinking only water. More detail on this fast below.

 

OTHER TYPES OF PARTIAL FASTS:  

  • Giving up one item of food or drink such as caffeine, coffee, soft drinks or sweets

  • Giving up one meal a day for a specific amount of time, one meal a week, etc.

  • Fasting for a set time during the day. For instance, from 6:00am to 3:00pm or from sun-up to sundown.

 

SPECIFIC FOOD FAST

In this type of fast you omit a specific item(s) from your meal plans. For example, you may choose to eliminate all red meat, processed or fast food, or sweets. Most people can incorporate this type of fast relatively easily. It can also prove to be a great solution for people with specific dietary needs or medical conditions that may cause certain limitations.

 

JUICEFAST 

A juice fast is simply consuming vegetable and fruit juices and water instead of solid food. Many people include whey protein in their liquid plan as well. This is one of the most popular and effective fasts. Even if you choose not to make your entire fast liquids only, substituting one or two meals for liquids is a great alternative.

 

DANIEL FAST 

DANIEL FAST The Daniel fast is a great model to follow and one that is extremely effectivefor spiritual focus, bodily discipline, and purification of the body and soul. It is one of the most commonly referred-to fasts; however, within the Daniel fast there is room for broad interpretation. Daniel 1 states that he only ate vegetables and water, and in Daniel 10, while the passage does not give a specific list of foods that Daniel ate, it does state that he ate no rich (or choice) foods, as well as no meat or wine. So based on these two verses, we can see that either of these, orcombinations of the two, constitute a Daniel fast.

It is important to reiterate that there is nothing inherently spiritual about one type of fast as opposed to another. Your goal should be to seek God in prayer about this and follow what the Holy Spirit leads you to do. Just remember: find your personal Fast Zone.

 

FOOD/BEVERAGES (6AM – 6PM)*

  • Fruits & Vegetables

  • Salads (no meat)

  • Juice & Water

  • Duration:  6 am – 6pm daily

*Consult your doctor to make sure this restricted diet is safe for you.

SOUL FAST/NO SOCIAL MEDIA (24/7)

This type of fast helps to restore and refocus ares of our lives that are out of wack. For example, you might choose to stop using social media or watching television for the duration of the fast and then carefully bring that element back into your life in healthy doses at the conclusion of the fast.

 

NO SOCIAL MEDIA (24/7)

  • No social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, etc.)

  • Duration: 24/7 until the end of the fast
