Re: Day 46 - Ended fast today
well I didn't just press disagree, I gave you the reasons WHY I disagreed.
After reading the thread since my last visit, I agree wholeheartedly with ALL of Fontys posts in reply to your own, so there is no need for me to reiterate what he has already said.
As an additional point though with regard to your reply to Sheltons method of breaking fasts with juices, and the care needed in doing so...........
Your quote comes from Shelton
in Chapter 30 of his online book entitled Breaking The Fast, where the breaking of fasts with juices was his firmly held belief as the best method at the time of writing; however, at a later date, he retracted his viewpoint with the experience of his colleague & associate, Dr Virginia Vetrano:
"My associate, Dr Virginia Vetrano, has just recently thoroughly tested both methods of breaking fasts, and has fully demonstrated the superiority of whole foods over juices."
"Fasting for Renewal of Life"... Shelton
You will find that Sheltons books entitled "Fasting For Renewal of Life" & " Fasting Can Save Your Life
" were later additions to his main & now online book, and published as updates to his earlier works.
Juices are now seen as not essential in breaking a fast of any length, as long as they are of a high water content, and as Fonty has already stated.
