Fasting

Test Your Fasting IQ!

By Joe Wilkes
From the Million Dollar Body Club - Join Today and Workout to Win!

  1. ChurchWhat are the only two days of fasting required by the Catholic Church? Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. On those days, the fast is observed symbolically by eating only one meal on each day. In 1966, Pope Paul VI changed the policy of the church that refraining from eating every Friday was now only encouraged rather than required.

  2. PepperWhat are the four ingredients in the Master Cleanse diet? Maple syrup, lemon juice, cayenne pepper, and water. According to the plan, that's all you drink for at least 10 days. It professes to detoxify the colon, kidneys, gall bladder, and liver. Needing to be less bootylicious for her role in Dreamgirls, Beyoncé Knowles claims to have lost 20 pounds on the Master Cleanse.

  3. Cesar ChavezHow long was Cesar Chavez's longest fast? Chavez, the labor leader and cofounder of the United Farm Workers, fasted for 36 days in 1988 to protest pesticide use. Other famous leaders who have used fasting as a political tool include Martin Luther King, Jr. and Mahatma Gandhi.

  4. Islam TempleHow long is the Islamic fast of Ramadan? Muslims are not supposed to eat or drink during daylight hours for one lunar month. Almost every religion involves fasting in some manner. Jewish people fast on Yom Kippur as atonement for their sins. Mormons are supposed to fast the first Sunday of every month and donate the money they would have spent on food to the poor.

  5. David BlaineHow long can a human being survive without food? Generally, the average human being can survive almost a month without food. Illusionist David Blaine managed to survive 44 days in a glass box in London in 2003. The Guinness Book of World Records refuses to keep "fasting records" so as not to encourage people to try to break them.
