40 Days 40 Nights Of Fasting
Maybe I need to get myself a trophy or a small ribbon. All I know is the last 40 days and nights have felt like 40 years. I’ve now gone 40 days straight eating with a discipline only God could give me. This has all been motivated most by wanting to live in much less daily pain.
This entire time has been such an eye opener. I now know without any doubt that what you eat highly impacts how you feel. You’re either feeding yourself inflammation or quality nutrition. I’m not only seeking to stay away from all inflammatory foods, but I’m trying to eat healing foods.
So far, I’ve been able to reduce a lot of my medications. No longer am I just living in a fog. Instead, I can actually concentrate most of the day. Sure I still have pain due to my nerve damage. But, eating clean has changed my extreme pain anywhere from 50-75 %. This entire time I’ve mainly eaten only fruits, veggies, nuts, beans, and very lean meats.
I just officially started juicing very healthy veggies. None of it does good to my taste buds. But, it feels like medicine as I chug it down. I’m aiming to eat around 12 servings of veggies daily. Seeking to resist all the delicious foods around me has been very challenging. Especially during the holiday season. However, by the grace if God I’ve stayed the course and my body keeps thanking me for it. If you’re trying to get healthy. Start with your diet before you take any other steps forward.
