Chris Pratt Explains Why He Decided To Do Biblical Daniel Fast for 21 Days - Watch Here!

Chris Pratt made an appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Thursday night (February 7) and opened up about participating in the Daniel Fast, a Bible-inspired diet, for most of his 2019 so far.

“I just came off it a couple days ago,” the Lego Movie 2: The Second Part star revealed to Stephen. “It’s a 21-day fast. A lot of people are doing it. I did it through my church. It’s based on Daniel, the book of Daniel, the profit Daniel from the Old Testament.”

“He was a guy who only ate fruits and vegetables and grains, and didn’t have any breads and didn’t have any animal products,” Chris continued, adding that the diet was church-inspired, saying, “I was inspired by my pastor, we do it, it’s kind of like our Lent, you know, give something up. So for 21 days I had no meat, no sugar, no alcohol, and it was actually amazing. It was really cool.”

Chris later gave a quote from his Pastor about the pressures of fame and struggle to maintain ones inner self: “If the spotlight that is shining on you is brighter than the light that’s within you, it will kill you.”
