Types of Fasts

The fast you choose should present a level of challenge, but it's important to know your body, your options, and most importantly, to seek God in prayer and follow what the Holy Spirit leads you to do. Fasting requires reasonable precautions. Please consult your physician prior to beginning your fast, especially if you have any health concerns, you are taking any medication, have a chronic condition, or are pregnant or nursing. Here are some types of fasts you can consider:

 

 

1. Complete

You drink only liquids, typically water with light juices as an option.

2. Selective

You remove certain elements from your diet. One example is the Daniel Fast, during which you remove meat, sweets, and bread from your diet and consume water and juice for fluids and fruits and vegetables for food.

3. Partial

This involves abstaining from eating any type of food in the morning and afternoon. This can either correlate to specific times of the day, such as 6:00 am to 3:00 pm, or from sunup to sundown.

4. Soul Fast

This is a good option if you do not have much experience fasting food, have health issues that prevent you from fasting food, or if you wish to refocus certain areas of your life that are out of balance. For example, you can choose to stop using social media for the duration of the fast.
