When You Fast Part 2
For those of you who are planning on fasting tomorrow and taking part in 627, here are the ways I recommended you do it. If you have other ideas I’d love to hear them.
For all the ideas below, I’d suggest eating no food and drinking only water or juice. I recommend that you drink more water or juice than normal during the fast. If you are unable to go without food, try going on one small meal for the day, rather than what you normally would eat. When you break the fast, be sure to eat something light and healthy at first before moving on to normal size meals.
If you are physically unable to fast from food due to health reasons, fast from something food-like, such as TV, Facebook, texting, caffeine, Internet, games, etc. I would recommend parents encouraging the kids to do something along these lines rather than fasting from food.
Lunch to Lunch: Eat breakfast and lunch on Wednesday, skip supper Wednesday night and breakfast Thursday morning, drink water or juice. Break the fast with a light lunch on Thursday.
Sun Up To Sun Down: On Wednesday, as long as the sun is up, fast from food, drink only water or juice. You may have an early breakfast and/or a late supper, just as long as its dark outside! This one seems to be the most popular.
No Food Wednesday: Skip meals altogether on Wednesday drinking only water or juice.
