The Daniel Plan: 40 Days to a Healthier Life (Hardcover)
By Rick Warren
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, Warren 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. 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.
“The Fitness portion shows you how to incorporate exercises to do each of the 40 days. They're broken up into Aerobic/Stretch and Strength training which include directions and a small illustration. Most of this book shows you how to start the Daniel Plan, while the plan itself is at the very end. You'll also find recipes and a pre-made shopping list which to me, is very helpful.” – staceb
