    How are you fasting if you are eating veggies? For some people that's their diet all the time.

    That reminds me of people who eat chicken and fish yet still call themselves vegetarians.

    LOL, there are people who eat chicken and Fish and call themselves vegeterians? That is crazy! Besides, I thought fasting was when you don't drink or eat? One of my cousins was telling me about how he caught an Arabic guy eating a pork chop, like it was nobody's business! He wasn't an Arab Christian either, he was a Muslim. This world is crazy.

    But I did think that there was only one type of fasting, though. BreakFAST, technically can be eaten at anytime of the day as long it is the first thing you have had to eat.

    My three-week fast officially ended yesterday.
    I dropped 10 pounds.

    Praise The Lord. :jump:

    Doing this fast has definitely made me rethink about the way I eat. I do believe that I will continue to practice some of the principals of this fast. I would recommend this diet to anyone who is looking for a cutting plan. Of course adding meat and dairy to the mix is a must. I’ve got to have my eggs. I’ve got to have my chicken. I’ve got to have my fish. However, I’m going to drastically reduce my intake of red meat and pork. I’m also going to drastically reduce my salt intake.
