Why is it important to fast on just bread and water?

Physically, bread and water cleanses our body of toxins and gives our digestive system a rest. Bread is an association with the Bread of Life, the Holy Eucharist, and is the basic necessity of our nutrition. Water is for the purification and cleansing of our soul.

A bread and water fast also teaches us to distinguish between what we need vs. what we want, and we enter into a “poor spirit” as our food is simple yet fulfilling. This fast helps us re-establish our relationship with food as a physical necessity as opposed to a luxury and pleasure of the flesh.
