One of the most popular fasts in recent years has been the Daniel Fast, a 21-day period of prayer and fasting based on the Old Testament prophet's fasts recorded in Daniel 1 and Daniel 10.

 

The Daniel Fast is a partial fast, in which certain foods are restricted and others are consumed. This fast is similar to a 'purified' vegan diet; in addition to the exclusion of all animal products, no additives, preservatives, sweeteners, caffeine, alcohol, white flour, or processed foods are allowed. With the Daniel Fast people can eat as much Daniel-Fast-friendly food as they would like. Though most people begin the Daniel Fast for a spiritual purpose, many are amazed by the physical transformation that takes place. Many with high cholesterol experience a drop to healthy levels; people who have wrestled with weight issues are suddenly able to lose the pounds. The vast majority of participants following the Daniel Fast report a general sense of well-being and increased energy. Recent published scientific studies of the Daniel Fast have confirmed these findings, with additional benefits, such as a reduction in systemic inflammation, a reduction in blood pressure, and an improvement in antioxidant defenses.

 

The Daniel Cure will help readers take the next step by focusing on the health benefits of the Daniel Fast. By following the advice in this book, readers will convert the Daniel Fast from a once-a-year spiritual discipline into a new way of life that can begin any time of the year. In a nation suffering an epidemic of obesity and its resulting ills, The Daniel Cure may be just what the Great Physician ordered.

 

The Daniel Cure includes a 21-Day Daniel Cure Devotional, four chapters detailing the lifestyle diseases of obesity, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and inflammation, eleven chapters of recipes and meal planning advice, a recipe index, complete nutritional guidance, and an appendix detailing 'The Science behind the Daniel Fast.'

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Tips on Healthy Eating My book review for October is for the book: “The Daniel Cure: The Daniel Fast Way to Vibrant Health”, written by Susan Gregory and Richard J. Bloomer PhD, published by Zondervan. The book retails for about $11.99 CDN at Chapters (for the Kobo version) and was released on October 22nd, 2013. This book was another book I was able to read before the official release date! I actually really enjoyed this book. I was worried that it was going to be more scripture than good information, but it was really good information about healthy choices along with scriptures. My cousin is vegan and I have done vegan diets before to jump start my weight loss journey. Since doing vegan fasts twice or three times a year, I've lost over 100lbs in a healthy manageable way. I really appreciate all the hard work that both authors went into writing this book and found it much better (as one of the authors has a PhD) then a previous book I had read on healthy eating. I plan on doing the Daniel Fast probably in January, to jump start my new year! I really enjoyed Chapter 11, "Nutrition for Life", goes through very simply how positive and good choices when it comes to nutrition help us in our weight loss goals, but also just for our overall well-being. There are also some bmi calculators and calorie intake estimator calculations. Overall, I will really enjoyed reading this book. I recommend this book to anyone, looking to make positive, healthy changes to their eating. I give it a 5 out of 5. Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book at no charge through BookSneeze.com’s Blogger Review Program in exchange for my honest opinion of this book. I was not required to submit a positive review, opinions expressed in this review are my own.
