Greetings Everyone!!! I hope everyone is having a great weekend!! I received this book for reviewing.  I wasn't at first sure how this was going to go, but then I started reading and got a different perspective.  Generally when you think of fasting you think of a time period when you will stop eating and spend time with God.  I have done it this way in the past.  This approach is different.  This one you only can eat vegetables, but then as I read further that you can eat fruit.  You need to stay away from the processed foods and sweeteners. Basically, you are to eat vegetables, fruit, nuts and drink water.

My recommendation to you as well. If you have a special diet, nutrition plan that you are following because of medial needs then you should follow that.  If you choose to take away anything from your eating plan do it safely and wisely.  Do not put yourself at risk.  I say this as I have Osteogenesis Imperfecta (Brittle Bones Disease); I was advised to increase my calcium through foods which I am doing.  In this it wants you to eliminate dairy.  I am choosing to eliminate different things to make the plan work for me.   You can put this to your needs as well.  I can say that the time spent with God has been great!

I would recommend this to you.  I am now doing this through my church with great women of God.  Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you will stop again.  I will have some posts soon of things I am in progress of making.

Grace & Peace,
