    Hi Maria,
    There are no scriptures in the Daniel Fast that specify the amount of food (portion size) or even number of times per day to eat during the fasting period. However, we need to keep in mind that this is a fast and portion control and eating sensibly is appropriate. So eating three moderate meals and two small snacks a day would be appropriate. I hope this helps, Be Blessed on your Fast!

    Hi Tamara,
    I encourage you to take a copy of the Daniel Fast Guidelines to your Health Care Provider and together make the required modifications (if any) to your fast. Men and women with insulin or Type 2 diabetes experience wonderful results on the Daniel Fast “if” they are wise about the foods they eat. Whole grain cereals and leafy green vegetables are packed with protein yet very low on the glycemic index. The same is true of legumes. Many people with Type 2 diabetes are able to balance their blood sugar levels with the food they eat and can soon eliminate or drastically reduce the meds they take. The same is true with insulin-dependent diabetics – often able to greatly reduce the amount of insulin necessary to balance their BS levels.
    You will want to make sure to eat foods that are “low on the glycemic index” and not sugary fruits. Of course you want to take the advice of your health professional, And access your own knowledge. But you can get plenty of protein in other ways than nuts and peanut butter. Again, Whole grains, legumes and leafy green vegetables are excellent sources of protein. Also, you will want to eat complex carbohydrates rather than simple carbohydrates. They are processed very differently in the body. You need to stay away from simple carbohydrates.
    – Some examples of healthy foods containing “Complex Carbohydrates”:
    Spinach, Whole Barley, Grapefruit, Turnip Greens, Buckwheat flour, Apples, Lettuce, Prunes, Water Cress, Oat bran flour, Apricots, Dried, Zucchini, Oatmeal, Pears, Asparagus, Oat bran cereal, Plums, Artichokes, Muesli, Strawberries, Okra, Wild rice, Oranges, Cabbage, Brown rice, Yams, Celery, Multi-grains, Carrots, Cucumbers, Pinto beans, Potatoes, Dill Pickles, low fat Soybeans, Radishes, Lentils, Broccoli, Navy beans, Garbanzo beans, Brussels Sprouts, Cauliflower, Kidney beans, Eggplant, Soy milk, Lentils, Onions, Whole meal spelt flour, Split peas.
    – Some examples of foods to Avoid containing “simple carbohydrates”: All of which are NOT allowed on the fast. (Simple carbohydrates are more refined, are usually found in foods with fewer nutrients, and tend to be less satisfying and more fattening):
    Table sugar, Corn syrup, Fruit juice, Candy, Cake, Bread made with white flour, Pasta made with white flour, Soda pop, such as Coke®, Pepsi®, Mountain Dew®, etc., Candy, All baked goods made with white flour, basically Most packaged cereals.
    You can order a copy of the Daniel Fast Guidelines by going to and enter your email address, they will be emailed back to you. I hope this helps, Be BLESSED on your Journey!!

  7. You’ve brought me great encouragement this morning as my fingers are busy tapping away and helping God’s people enter into a successful fasting experience. I am humbled that the Lord gave me this assignment in 2007. He has blessed me way beyond what I ever could have imagined for myself.

    Thank you, dear one. I’ve taken this “encouragement vitamin” and it’s doing its sweet work.

    Be blessed

    What a blessing to see Susan walking in her destiny. That is the main focus of my fast this year, as I fast and pray I have faith God will reveal my destiny to me. I don’t want to die and be buried with my destiny I want to fulfill the plans God has for me!
