                                                               iii.      6 p.m. – 6 a.m. (No eating after 6 p.m. and prior to bed)

II.                Additional Information regarding fasting:

a.      A person should begin a fast gradually, 2-3 days prior to fasting.

         i.      Start with giving up meats/sweets and unhealthy liquids

        ii.      Next give up vegetables and eat fruit only

       iii.      Finally, depending on the type of fast you choose, stop with the vegetables and fruit and drink water and 100% juice (watch the sugar content) and fruit and/or vegetable smoothies.

b.     When resuming your diet, gradually add back foods/liquids you eliminated in reverse order, one meal at a time. (In some instances, it may be one day at a time). Ex: Add, fruit, then vegetables, meat, etc. 

c.      If you forget or become weak and eat, do not feel guilty and quit, just begin again.

d.     While we know that biblical fasting consists of eliminating food from our diet, others have also eliminated habits/routines that would normally keep them from devoting quality time to prayer and study: (television, computer, social media, etc.)

e.      Please always remember to check with your doctor if you have health challenges or are medication before beginning a fast.
