4o days fasting

"I tried fasting without food for 40 days". Check out what I learned when I didn't eat food for 40 days and the health benefits from water fasting and modified fasting.

Christians regularly go ten days or longer on water–even up to forty days–with good effects both spiritually and physically under the supervision of one who knows about water fasting. We have more food reserves stored in body fat than we realize, and most of us would be happy to give up the fat.

Although nowadays we tend to remember only the Biblical 40-day fasts of Moses and Jesus, the fact is that many spiritual traditions over the millennia have demanded 40-day water fasts. Even Pythagorus required potential students to undertake a 40-day fast before he was willing to accept them.
