Publisher's Description

Wellness minded people today are increasingly turning to intermittent fasting to bolster their health. But we aren’t the first people to abstain from eating for a purpose. This routine was a common part of our spiritual ancestors’ lives for 1,500 years.

Jay Richards argues that Christians should recover the fasting lifestyle, not only to improve our bodies, but to bolster our spiritual health as well. In Eat, Fast, Feast, he combines forgotten spiritual wisdom on fasting and feasting with the burgeoning literature on ketogenic diets and fasting for improved physical and mental health. Based on his popular series “Fasting, Body and Soul” in The Stream, Eat, Fast, Feast explores what it means to substitute our hunger for God for our hunger for food, and what both modern science and the ancient monastics can teach us about this practice.

Richards argues that our modern diet—heavy in sugar and refined carbohydrates—locks us into a metabolic trap that makes fasting unfruitful and our feasts devoid of meaning. The good news, he reveals, is that we are beginning to resist the tyranny of processed foods, with millions of people pursuing low carb, ketogenic, paleo, and primal diets. This growing body of experts argue that eating natural fat and fasting is not only safe, but far better than how we eat today.

Richards provides a 40-day plan which combines a long-term “nutritional ketosis” with spiritual disciplines. The plan can be used any time of the year or be adapted to a penitential season on the Christian calendar, such as Advent or Lent.

Editorial Reviews

“Richards helps us to understand why fasting is important, helpful, and spiritually nourishing. Richards is a wise, informed guide into an ancient, life-enhancing practice.  If you interested in fasting and seek a wise path into the discipline, this is the book for you. Highly recommended.”
“Richards is a polymath you can trust, and Eat, Fast, Feast is trustworthy and true. If you are confused about when to eat and when to abstain from eating, don’t delay, read today. I did, and the results have been transformational.” 
“Jay Richards has gained profound insights into how the body works, fasting, and prayer. This is the fruit of that first-hand research.”
