January 6, 2008 | | 9,886 Views

    • LIS: can anyone tell me if this is where I post questions on this site? I don’t see a “fasting questions” page. Thank you
  • Fasting Club Jan 2009 (137)
    • Tom Coghill: Hi Pastor Jim, Fascinating. I have been with many church groups over the years. So your path make sense. A journey to truth. I did the coffee fast also. Hard on the body. Fasting sure does increase the impact of caffeine.
    • mmk: Hi Everyone, For the past few days I’ve been thinking about fasting. I’m disgusted with the softness of my belly after the holidays and discouraged by my attachment to emotional eating. I came online to do a little research and found this terrific site. I am so encouraged by all...
    • Pastor Jim Hollingsworth: Tom, Grew up in the Friends church, turned to Christ at age 23 (1978), went back to College at age 30, pastored Friends churches until 1992. Began a non-denominational at that point of which I still pastor. A lot of freedom in it. Without a denominational missionay...
    • Rhet: Pastor Jim, you are a real inspiration! Kelly, I get the racing heart too, and it gets worse with nausea. I relate to how scary it is. But I’m still here. Kristina, you go girl! Wow, you have a lot of momentum. Sylvie, I totally hear you about wanting to avoid things that under normal...
    • belindadw: I am on my fourth day of fasting, but I dont do a complete fast. I have a small tub (125ml) of fatfree yogurt every morning. How effective will the fast be with this? The rest of the time it is a water fast.
    • Tom Coghill: Hi Sylvie, Inner peace come from peaceful thoughts. ...whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about these things and the God of peace will be with you. Phil 4:8
    • Tom Coghill: Jessica, If you are binging after a few days of fasting you will be in major pain if you make a longer fast. Why not try shorter juice fasting and breaking it with a healthy diet? Then do some longer fasts. A 40 day fast is an good intention but you will not have the self control to...
    • Tom Coghill: Hi Pastor Jim, What is your affiliation? To bad that more pastors do not fast. Thanks for posting.
    • Tom Coghill: Hi Kelly, The complaint of a racing heat, a heart that seems to thud louder and usual is fairly common. It usually passes within the first 5 days unless there is a heart condition, that was undiagnosed. Toxins in the blood from detoxification, and interfere with the hearts nerve...
    • Tom Coghill: Hi Brenda, You choices are a minefield. Water and compulsive behaviour is a bad combination. You will end up feeling sick, depressed and never be able to do it right. You have to go very slow. Try a 3 day juice fast and think of all the healthiest foods and you enjoying them after...
    • Tom Coghill: Hi Kristina, During fasting there can be lack of thirst at 2 cups a day of fluid and thirst when you are getting 10 cups a day. These are the pathways of the body to rebalancing homoeostasis. Just follow the path.

    • Bridget: Thank you so much Tom!! This all helps a lot!
    • Tom Coghill: Hi Bridget, I tried it and chewing gum did not work for me. I chewed hard and it made me hungry and I always wanted more gum. Better to not chew gum.
    • Tom Coghill: Bridget, I saw a man loose 100 lb in 40 days of juice fasting but it was mostly from the liver healing and losing the water held due to water retention. That depends on the metabolism of your body and and even then it is a guess.

The seed protein of hemp is truly discovered in therapeutic ability. I was a druggie from many years. So...
    • georgie: Hi, I am a 50yr old woman who has smoked cigs since I was 14yrs and pot since I was 15yrs. I’ve had a few breaks from the pot in the years since, which was VERY easy to do, but have NEVER been able to have any breaks let alone quit cigs. Yes in my time I have also taken many other...

Quote From the Books

Ok, I now know just how messed up I am. The chapters on the emotions and eating hit home. I am planning a fast but, I know that I need to rebuild and cleanse my mind of all the toxic thinking and emotions that make me want to hide in the pleasures of food. I feel alive for the first time in many years. Keep on going, Tom you have helped me more than my words can express. — Suzie Bilinere
