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.

Customer Reviews of The Daniel Plan: 40 Days To A Healthier Life


Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Daniel Plan The Daniel Plan The Daniel Plan : 40 Days to a HEALTHIER life by Rick Warren D.MIN., Daniel Amen M.D. & Mark Hyman M.D. is what seems to be a really good idea ! It's not a diet book, it's a lifestyle change book. It's based off of the story of Daniel (Old Testament, pretty awesome dude, fought the lions in the den, you know?) and the part where he challenges the king's food and eats the healthy foods he is use to. The Daniel Plan is based on the Five "F"s : Faith, Food, Fitness, Focus & Friends. To regognize that your body is given to you by God, as a gift. A gift that Jesus paid the ultimate price for. The Bible says in multiple different places that we should take care of our bodies. They are a temple, The Spirit resides in it. And then the Food that fuels it should also be food that heals it, not put it in worse shape that it's in already. So then, once you are properly fueled, you should harness that energy and put it to good use by exercising and focusing on the right choices for your body. You should also concern your self with your brain's well being. Stress and all of life's challenges can be harmful to your mental health. A sound mind in a sound body, is that how it goes ? Focusing on your brain is important too! And most of all, having a great support system is ideal with all healthy lifestyles. Friends to encourage you and keep you accountable to your goal are a big part in being successful in most things in life ! I really liked how this book was written, it's not in a condoning way or a mean "we-are-supper-healthy-and-you-are-not kind of way, |It;s relate-able and easy to read through. It also has great meal plans and list and receipes and all sorts of fun stuff. As well as lots of scripture and Biblical references. I enjoyed this book and plan to gift it to my mother-in-law for Christmas. I would recommend it to all who feel like making better lifestyle changes but are not too sure where to start. Start here!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FINALLY. A book that pairs physical health with Spiritual health. Anyone else think it was high time a book like this was published? The Daniel Plan definitely surpassed my expectations--it deserves all the accolades. This book is packed with an easy-to-follow, comprehensive guide to living a healthier life. The book's core "essentials" are Faith, Food, Fitness, Focus, and Friends and the first chapters each focus on how integrating these values can improve your health. After these chapters, there is a more specialized plan and 40-day fitness challenge, which includes exercises, a "plan of the day," and detailed meal plans. This set-up of the book was perfect, because after making a plan and committing to it, you have all the resources you need right at your fingertips. Originally, I thought this book was going to be kind of gimmicky--use one part of the Bible that says something about eating and blow it way out of proportion. It isn't. Instead, it pairs Scriptural teaching (a lot of it) with sound physical health principles--The Daniel Plan actually hardly mentions Daniel at all, which I'm okay with. I'm definitely inspired. Disclaimer: I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good plan I found this book echoes so much of what I've already heard, but it really pulled together so many elements for a successful lifestyle change. I think the authors have done a great job in making good information available to the readers. And that this can be done as a group study is fantastic!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Refreshing approach to wellness Daniel plan has given me a new perspective on wellness program. However, some recipes may be hard to follow because quite a few ingredients are not found in Asia.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed Read I've read many health books on dieting and eating healthier.  And I felt this one was no different. I feel the doctors he collaborated with are already well known authors of similar books that I what I read is no different that what I've read from them before.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Book My book review for November is for the book: “The Daniel Plan - 40 Days to a Healthier Life”, written by Rick Warren D.Min, Daniel Amen M.D, and Mark Hyman M.D, published by Zondervan. This book was another book I was able to read before the official release date! This is the second “Daniel Diet” type book I have read recently. I read The Daniel Cure last month. I’m not a very religious person anymore and that’s why I probably didn’t really feel a “connection” with this book. The Daniel Plan was written by a pastor who saw the need for a weight loss change in his congregation. Through their own “community” they achieved their goal and also give that glory to God. Here’s where my problem is. I believe, God or no God, if you put your mind to something, you are able to do it. You need to be committed to change (if you only truly want change) and it is easier with help and support from others. That being said, these type of “Daniel Diets” can be fitted to your own “community”, whether that’s a group of your girlfriends hitting a yoga or fitness class, making healthy choices at dinner with your family, etc.  Overall, I did enjoy reading this book. It has some good health related tips and is easy to understand. I give it a 4 out of 5. Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book at no charge through’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.
