The Daniel Plan

The Daniel Plan
40 Days to a Healthier Life
Rick Warren, Dr. Daniel Amen, Dr. Mark Hyman
Pastor Warren was baptizing a lot of people one day when it dawned on him - Americans are fat, grossly fat. But it also hit him that he was right there with them. So he made a plan to lose weight. He spoke with his congregation and thousands of people joined him in his pledge to not only lose weight, but to become more healthy. This book is the team effort of Pastor Warren and two doctors to make a Biblical plan to become healthier.

This book is a massive, almost 400 page book, packed full of tips, recipes, menus, exercise plans, and scripture to help the dieter get on track and lose weight. The plan is set out to encompass every aspect of a persons life. I had a love/hate relationship with this book as I read through it. I'm a list maker and a planner. So all of the charts, graphs, and menus were wonderful. But the book was so large and detailed that I quickly became overwhelmed. I honestly don't think I would ever start with this challenge. It was just too huge and confusing. Warren did stress the importance of doing this challenge with friends or family to keep you on track and accountable. So maybe if I'd read this in a small group or with a friend it wouldn't have been so daunting. All in all, it is a great book, I'm just not sure how many of us overwhelmed individuals will be helped by the tons of information presented.

I received this book free of charge from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for my honest review.
