There are many different kinds of food fasts. Naturally there would be no health concerns for someone choosing to fast treats and sweets – in fact that’s a better option for their health overall! Even something like the Daniel fast which is essentially vegetables and water can be sustained for a long time with generally no medical concerns for most people. However, food fasts where you are not eating certain meals, or not eating food at all for a period of time – while Biblical – should be approached with caution and care. Anyone who is not 100% healthy or suffers from certain medical conditions, or is pregnant – should consult a medical professional before beginning a food fast.
