    We have heard it from Elijah Muhammad, Noble Drew Ali, and even old African elders. What do you all think about eating once a day? Is it possible? Is it healthy? Does anyone on here do it?

    Hell yeah its possible. In the 5% Nation, before we even can get into the Lessons, we have to go on a 3 day fast.

    The first day, we don't eat or anything.

    The second and third days we can only drink water.

    That right there is a true self-imposed torture that I hated. But it did provide a helluva mental elevation and detox, all at once.

    Thas wasup! I know that helps with self discipline

    I have yet to meet a brother or sister yet though who has done the one meal a day for like 2-3 years. I have talked to a brother who said that he has been doing it for like almost a year and has more astral travel, vivid dreams, lucid dreaming, mental clarity, etc.

    I did one meal a day for about 7 years and I rarely, rarely got sick. It helped me to lose a lot of weight too. There is no harm to it and got into the practice since I was into Islam back in the day. Since I was a vegetarian (but ate fish and vegetables), I would eat either a big plate ital food or salmon/or any other fish with loads of vegetables.

    I did it for awhile at the beginning of this year. I don't think it is really good for menstruating/lactating women. As far as not getting sick? I'm not the getting sick type. I knew a man from the NOI who claimed to do it for years. I suppose it can be done.
