Book Review: The Daniel Plan (40 Days to a Healthier Life)

The Daniel Plan by Rick Warren, Daniel Amen and Mark Hyman
This is about self discovery and adding one more. A powerful approach when you choose getting healthy together. You'll be inspired to start the journey to transforming your life. The plan is well organized with 5 successful parts: Faith, Food, Fitness, Focus and Friends. I especially like the chapter on Change Your Brain, Change Your Health and my favorite passage is Renew Your Mind. I am finding that applying the concepts I've read daily are like applying daily rituals that bring good changes to my life inside and out. The personal testimonies are encouraging, as well as scripture and quotes. I find the recipes to be quite tasteful, too. The book is a blessing and a wonderful gift for my husband and I.

5/5 stars. Highly recommend.

Book Description

Revolutionize Your Health … Once and for All

During an afternoon of baptizing over 800 people, Pastor Rick Warren realized it was time for change. He told his congregation he needed to lose weight and asked if anyone wanted to join him. He thought maybe 200 people would sign up, instead he witnessed a movement unfold as 15,000 people lost over 260,000 pounds in the first year. With assistance from medical and fitness experts, Pastor Rick and thousands of people began a journey to transform their lives.

Welcome to The Daniel Plan.

Here’s the secret sauce: The Daniel Plan is designed to be done in a supportive community relying on God’s instruction for living.

When it comes to getting healthy, two are always better than one. Our research has revealed that people getting healthy together lose twice as much weight as those who do it alone. God never meant for you to go through life alone and that includes the journey to health.

Unlike the thousands of other books on the market, this book is not about a new diet, guilt-driven gym sessions, or shame-driven fasts. The Daniel Plan shows you how the powerful combination of faith, fitness, food, focus, and friends will change your health forever, transforming you in the most head-turning way imaginably---from the inside out.

I loved the book. I plan to post my review on Goodreads and LibraryThing, too.

Happy Reading!
