fasting, is a great way to discipline your appetite, but it's also a great way to take weight off and put more back on if you're not careful.

The best thing to do is fast (I'd do 5 days but two or three is fine) and then start back eating only fruits and vegatbles. Gradually work in the grains the meats after that.

When you break your fast do it with discipline, plan your very first meal, and develop a habit for meal planning to continue. See a nutritionist to learn about healthy eating.

There's no such thing as a Biblical fasting diet. You fast for spiritual reasons. You diet to lose weight. After you lose the excess weight you eat the right foods, in the right amount, and exercise to stay healthy. Simple plan, and it works.

Fasting is a big issue of the believers since it involves health and your faith to God. Jesus Christ himself fast and pray. Fasting and prayer goes together and no work.You simply had to read the word and meditate for something you claim from God. And fasting needs a process to prepare your body for this. edna8476

Fasting is not a game,it is an act of supplication to God(With prayer and Fasting),If any person enters into the act of fasting in the true biblical sense God will sustain you,however I would recommend that you speak to your Pastor/minister/elder
I fast for answers and other peoples situations along with prayer,but I tell no-one when I fast or for how long,and certainly don't use it for dieting.

Before you fast check with your doctor. It is not to loose weight, but that will surly happen. It is to give up something for the purpose of glorifying the Lord.

Jesus went into the wilderness and fasted for fourty days and nights before dealing with Satan and also told the disciples to fast and pray when dealing with certain demons. There is no relationship between Biblical and Fleshly fasting. Fasting to lose weight has been scientifically shown to be unhealthy and ineffective. The best way to lose weight and keep it off is by changing eating habbits and exercise.

A person should not fast just to lose weight. God will not get any glory or honor from that. Because you are only benefiting yourself. A person fasts because they need an answer or prayer from God, and they fast until that prayer or answer is met. If you are not fasting for the glory of God, then don't fast at all.
