  2. 2.

Both drastically raise blood sugar) Serenity Weight loss and Detoxification Program© (404) 445-8579
  3. 3. What is THE DANIEL FAST?: Some food for thought • The bible does not reference a “DANIEL FAST” [Daniel 10] ~ the word “fast” is not used • Daniel 10: 2 [message} “I, Daniel, went into morning over Jerusalem for 3 weeks (21 days) • Daniel 10: 3 [message] “ I ate only plain and simple food, no seasoning or meat or wine….I neither bathed nor shaved until the three weeks were up” Consider: This is a description of a distraught, depressed man who had just had a vision of a terrible war. Do we copy the grooming habits as well? • ISAIAH 58, for the best general scriptural reference for the purpose of fasting 3
  4. 4. THE SERENITY PLEDGE I promise to uphold the CONSTITUTION of the Serenity Challenge: ______I will follow these directions and ask questions ______ I promise to answer text messages and emails from my coach. ______I promise to attend at least two Monday night MIND FOOD meetings per month, formerly known as the Serenity team calls ______I promise to or read or listen to personal development books, because healthy weight management takes more than counting calories _____ I promise to stay social, have fun and not give up so easily 4
