Many neo-Evangelical/post-Protestant groups are looking for ways to practice their faith more actively, while retaining their aversion to anything "traditional." So, there are groups that have fasts, but they won't call it Lent; people who are living essentially like friars, but deprecate monasticism; groups that do healing services with oil, but won't call it a sacrament.

As an aside for the Daniel Fast followers: if they wanted to be really Biblically hardcore, they might consider doing the Jesus Fast. They could go into the wilderness and live off the land for forty days. Grin

i know a chick who said she ate nothing and drank only water for 40 days...

Yikes! That can kill you!

I know a priest who is eating no solid food this lent...trying to lose weight.

ya, i didn't believe her for a while...she said she slept alot...

And then, hopefully, jump off the Temple.

Most people are probably going to die just consuming water for 40 days. It is called salts. You sorta need them to function.

The longest I went for a bet without having food save for some salts and tiny bit of carbs in the morning (tablespoon of honey) was like 21 days.

I don't believe her.
