The Daniel Fast – just as it has done with me – can renew your spirit, jump start your weight-loss and healthy-eating journey, and enhance your mental and emotional wellbeing.
Whilst in the process of writing a 21-day Daniel Fast ‘cookbook’ for physical, mental, emotional and most importantly spiritual development, I thought I’d share a snippet of my progress.

Cauliflower Couscous Veggie Mix with Spicy Chic Peas Garbanzos
Drink lots of water. Drink at least 4-6 large glasses of water per day or 2 litres.
‘Breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, dine like a pauper’ applies perfectly during this fast. Commit to having your last meal no later than 7pm and getting to bed early to re-energise for the day and weeks ahead.
||Level of Exertion:
High-exertion days have meals with more carbs; low-exertion days have meals with less carbs and more fats. This is a naturally low-protein diet, yet it is still possible to lose weight, discover more energy, and tone up physically, spiritually and emotionally following this Daniel Fast plan.
You will become so much more aware of your body’s needs during this time, which is why there are a variety of options for most meals. If you feel as though a light meal will satisfy you, do not add the optional extras to your plate!
Be careful not to overdo it with the fruit servings. A piece of fruit equates to approx. 20g of carbs, but this is not always the case. Example: 2 kiwis = 1 serving.
Always read the label!
|Be thankful always. Appreciate every moment. Ask yourself: What am I thankful for RIGHT NOW?
Count your blessings. Keep a written daily record of at least 5 things you are thankful for in that day.
