Daniel 10:3

“I ate no choice food; no meat or wine touched by lips; and I used no lotions at all until the three weeks were over.”

Much discussion is made about what foods are allowed or not allowed on the 21 Day Daniel Fast.  Everyone agrees, based on the above verse, that fruits, vegetables, and water are the main components of this type of fast.  All also agree meat and meat products are not to be eatern.  From this point opinions vary.  Some say whole grains are acceptable, although no yeast products are included.  Sweets and dairy are not to be eaten.   

Questions and confusion abound about details relating to the food.  However, as with any fast, the purpose is to deny the flesh and focus on the Lord through prayer.  It is always best to determine before the fast begins what foods you will and will not eat.  Such a decision eliminates the temptation that comes during the fast. 

A 21 Day Daniel Fast is not a health food diet!  It is a time to seek the Lord with all your heart.  Be free from legalism and concentrate on the wonderful blessings of communion with God!
