For 21 days I committed with my church and my family to do the Daniel Fast, inspired by Daniel in the bible. I pledged to eat no meat, dairy, sugar, sweeteners, deep fried, alcohol or processed food. This is essentially super clean vegan. I did it! (But for one chocolate chip cookie in a box lunch at work :-/
You wouldn’t believe how sugar is in EVERYTHING. We couldn’t even buy salsa without sugar unless it came from the Whole Foods grocery store. So, we cooked a lot! I even took crazy measures like tossing the M&Ms out of the trail mix pack.
There were so many wonderful benefits of fasting. I spent more time studying with my Mom and my mind was so clear. I have new business ideas pouring out so fast I can’t decide what I want to do next. During the fast, I didn’t constantly crave food and I’m so intune with my hunger. My body feels great! I LOST 17.8 pounds in 21 DAYS. My jeans are baggy.
Whether Christian or not, eating the foods we were designed to eat, Fruits, veggies and whole grain can reset your body and have drastic improvements on your health and mental wellbeing.
So what’s next for me? Gus’ Fried Chicken. LOL. I’m having a cheat day. Then tomorrow I’m going back to clean eating, but adding meat and eggs. Thanks for following along my journey.
