  1. This is a wonderful article, thank you. However, “soft dry fast” does not include drinking water- that is a water fast. Soft dry fast means you wash your hands, shower etc.. Dry fasting has helped heal conditions doctors said I would “have to learn to live with”, they were wrong, so wrong.

    1. Thanks for your reply Carla.
      That’s a great distinction. I have never drunk water during a Dry Fast, so I tend to agree.

  2. Wow! You are almost done. Please let us know if the results are what you hoped they would be.

      Yes, I dry fasted two times this year 2021. The first fast I was healed, the pain left me, a three day and night dry fast. On the first time of three day of dry fasting and my second time of three dry fasting, my inflamation in my left hand was no longer in inflamation anymore. But I need to do the recover part, and slowly recover, try fruits, raisens,etc. I notice my inflamation returned when I drank some water, about a quart, after dry fasting for 3 days and nights. I think I might have had inflamation in other parts of my body. I lost weight fast, but I was sick, and in pain,and not interesting in loosing weight. Before I dry fast 1 day, and water fast in the past. I still will dry fast, and do the recovery parts.

      1. Thanks for your reply. You seem to be more in tune with your body than me. I really like a water fast but get better results from a dry fast.
        Recovery is important and trial and error is golden.

    I have an infection in the genital area. Would dry fasting be good for this condition and how long a dry fast need i do?

  4. Thanks for your comment Serena. Esther Fast? That may explain why I can only Dry Fast for only 3 days.

  5. On a soft fast you drink no water, but you can brush your teeth, take a shower, wash you hands. So you eat no food or drink no water. This fast in the Bible is called the Esther Fast. When Esther fasted for 3 days on no food and no water to save her people.

    How long can a person dry fast? I’ve seen different answers. Some say don’t go for for longer than 3 days, and others have said up to 14 days. I am doing a dry fast now and would like to do 14 days.

    1. Thanks for your comment. I only Dry Fast for 3 day and would like to get up to 5 days.
      Just remember, there is a difference between fast depriving yourself of food than Dry Fasting depriving yourself of food and water.
      You can good without water for about a week and without food for about three weeks.

    2. Thanks for your comment. It depends on why you would like to Dry Fast and the results you seek. 14 days for a beginner maybe unrealistic. What is the result you seek?

  8. Hey great information and insights on dry fasting. Thanks very much stay highly blessed

  9. Hello Tony, thanks again for another good post. I am familiar with fasting even the 40 days fast, (but not from personal experience of going 40 days). However, I did not know it did so much good for the body.

    I must admit even whilst reading your post I kept thinking being without water for 40 days is rather risky. There is certainly no end to what we can learn.

        My first interview with Justin a member from our group who lost 204lbs with water fasting and dry fasting. join Patreon to see more …

        1. Thanks for your statement Peter. Weight loss is a common goal for people who fast. 204? That’s amazing!

      2. It’s been done many many times. Btw, what medical experience do you have to support ur claim

        1. I am not a Doctor in real life. I just play one on the internet. You just walked right into that one. LOL

        Check out Breatharianism. There are people who neither eat or drink. Jesus said I have food ye know no whereof.

        1. So that is what he was on about..
          hmm it’s funny when I dry fast all inflammation is gone but minutes after I reintroduce liquids / food then it’s back again/:
          Are you a breathararian yourself?

    2. Thanks for your comment EJ. 40 days of fasting is biblical. Unless The All Mighty request you fast for 40 days I suggest you not try it. LOL

  10. Hey man! =)

    I have heard of the term ‘fasting’ before but never dry fasting, so thanks to introducing me to this concept.

    After reading all the benefits from dry fasting, I’m tempted to give it a go.


    1. Thanks for the comment. Let us know how it goes 😉

    2. Thanks for your response, Lawrence. I admit Dry Fasting seems counter-intuitive but has proven to be effective. Please let us know your results.

  11. Tony, thanks for the in depth look at dry fasting! I have fasted over the years but never completely dry and didn’t know all the physical benefits of it as well. Thanks for sharing with us. What have you noticed to be the best outcome of a dry fast for you?

    1. Thanks for your reply, Katie. My results have been more mental than physical. I gain more mental clarity and more discipline. I find myself experimenting more on what I eat the days before I begin a Dry Fast.

  12. Man

    what an interesting concept, never even heard of it. But I would for sure try it out. Who does not want to reverse the aging process lol. I’m all for that. This was extremely informative, and enjoyed it. Thanks so much.

    1. Thanks for your comment AJ. Dry Fasting is an ancient technique to promote health and wellness. There was documented practice in the Bible. Give it a try allow the wonders of the human body to work for you.

  13. Tony,
    I had no clue that dry fasting could do all of these incredible things. Now I have to wait until it’s warm and go take a hike in the mountains, meditate, and dry fast!



    1. Thanks for your comment Ed. Yeah, Dry Fasting seems counterintuitive but makes sense in the larger scheme of things. It will take a few days to benefit from Dry Fasting in the mountains but is sure sounds great.

    2. What’s the holdup Ed? You know what they say. The best time to start was yesterday. The second best time to start is today 😉

    3. Thanks for your reply, Ed. Please keep us posted on your results.
