The Daniel Fast is a very healthy way to eat and is full of nutritious and healthy foods. However, if you have special dietary needs, you should consult your health professional before you start this fast. You can then modify the fast to meet your specific health needs. I do this fast at least twice a year. One in January, and one mid-way. I use the book ( and audio book) by Susan Gregory. You can get it at Amazon.com by clicking on the following link: http://amzn.to/1BFNNFK Foods to include during the Daniel Fast: All fruits. These can be fresh, frozen, dried, juiced or canned.
