i have suffered from bulimia for a long time, 7 years, but lately i had a awakening of sorts and i am on my way to accpeting my 130lb body just the way it is! i will never be as thin as i used to be and i wanst healthy when i was. this fast is for God, not for weight loss. I am thinking of drinking one or two ensures a day this fast so that i keep a healthy weight so i dont fret over losing it. i hope that works!

Just remember, dear Bornagain (What a beautiful name!) that your stomach knows no difference between food liquidized by a machine (juice, Ensure) and those liquidized by your teeth (most other food). That is why I have always considered "juice fast" to be a contradiction in terms. You can live on liquids indefinitely.

Whenever any TASTE is perceived by your tongue and nose during ingestion of any substance, the message to your brain is: "I'm eating", so the body is much less likely to go catabolic (break down fat).

There's nothing wrong with a liquid diet, it's just not serving the same purpose as a fast on a metabolic sense. Personally, I prefer real fasting 2 to 3 days every week, to long stretched out diets. This fits better, in my view, with the Scriptures that tell us to let our servants rest at least one day a week: The digestive system is, after all, your servant or slave..

well i agree with you about the pyshical aspect of juice fasting but i am not doing this fast for any health reason at all or to lose weight, just for spirital reasons. i feel that God is calling me to give up food for a period of 3 weeks. after i do the 21 days of liquid diet, i may very well do a 21 day water fast.
