The Eat Fast Feast Cycle with Jay Richards

Sep 28, 2023

I would like to just suggest the possibility that the perfect fast of bread and water is actually referring to the Eucharist and Baptism.

On this special episode of the Delay and Pray Podcast, Beth is sharing the ‘hors d’oeuvres’ of her recent Hungry for God Virtual Dinner Party: an interview with Jay Richards, author of Eat, Fast, Feast: Heal Your Body While Feeding Your Soul. In this episode, Jay shares how an impending medical procedure helped him to discover the metabolic power of fasting, and how this discovery led him into a rediscovery of fasting from a Christian perspective. With this information, he was able to use science, theology, and history to create a method for the modern-day American to reach metabolic flexibility while growing closer to God.

Beth and Jay discuss the Eat Fast Feast cycle, and how it honors the ancient liturgical calendar. They point out that our current American diet makes it very difficult to fast easily, and that our cultural mindsets are keeping us from reaching metabolic flexibility. They also address topics such as snacking, reverse-engineering your fasting for special occasions, and the difference between feasting and overeating. They emphasize the ways that fasting recognizes and honors our body-soul composite, and finally, they remind us that no matter what is happening in our lives and the lives of our loved ones, we can always tackle it with the power of prayer and fasting.
