Daniel Fast: Weight Loss
onecory posted:
I am currently on a 21 Daniel Fast. In the past, I've lost considerable weight during the fast. The problem is that I'm not trying to lose weight. Although it's for spiritual purposes, I want to use wisdom.

I'm 30 years old, in good health, 6'1, 145lbs. If I do lose weight, at what point is it unhealthy? Two years back, I dropped 16lbs. I consulted my doctor before I began the fast this year and he said I should be fine.

Thank you!
