Are you talking about fasting ye chi Kristu here or just fasting. Kana iri yeku church it depends. There is partial fasting and total fasting. But you  should know that fasting  in Christianity does not change the mind of God. It is meant to bring you closer to God. Where you forego the things that you normally want/like and focus on God

Talking about fasting to clean out the system, I have an exercise book that recommends eating nothing for the whole day when you have nothing strenuous to do, lazy day in other words.

I have not done it yet but am going to give it a go soon, my problem is that I donít have many lazy days.

Most religions during periods of fasting as a means of demonstrating one's faith or repentance, and an opportunity for spiritual reflection. Fasting has also historically been a means to express political views and a form of protest.

Excellent;

Wether fasting for health reasons or for religious reasons; the effects of fasting in the human body will remain the same; what differs is only the viewpoint
Open Your Eyes and Be Wise Righteousness will Make U Thrive!

According to me in a week one day taking fast, because in spiritualism it was good for our body, it is a way to express your views.

Some very good replies, I was thinking about it like this.

Say I fast for one complete day, I believe in drinking water so it will not be a true fast but just having nothing to eat on every Saturday would save a minimum of £5 a week.

If that money was then sent home to help some people in need it would make a small difference to somebodyís life, £20 a month may not be much but imagine if we all did it!
