Fasting Diets…

are gaining new acceptance, so says the headline. In Orthodox Christianity we’ve been following a fasting diet for around 20 centuries and, as a general rule, support the idea of moderation in our consumption of food throughout the year. From time to time stories like these remind us that our ancestors, although not as technically advanced as we are, had wisdom that has stood the test of time couched in the form of stories, traditions, and spiritual writings.
