Get Healthy with The Daniel Plan: Book Review

A new year usually brings lots of resolutions to get healthy or lose weight.  It's even on my to-do list.

I have been hearing a lot of buzz about Rick Warren's new book, "The Daniel Plan", so I decided to request an ebook to review from Booksneeze.  I usually don't like to review these ebooks.  I'm a hands on paper type of girl.  But I really wanted to read this book and it was the only one available. *sigh*

The first thing the author does is make a confession that he hasn't been the best example to his congregation regarding his weight.  Because of this, he feels his church is overweight as well.  Something has to change, he thought.  He gathered his folks, formed a get healthy community, and the rest is pretty much history.

Chapters include:

1. How it all began
2. The Essentials 
3. Faith
4. Food
5. Fitness
6. Focus
7. Friend
8. Living the Lifestyle
9. Daniel Strong 40 Day Fitness Challenge
10. 40-Day Meal Plans

Also includes a Metric Conversion Chart and  notes.

In chapter 5, Pastor Ricks hares that some foods we eat can harm, like food allergies such as gluten.  He takes you through a way to detox yourself from foods that may be harming your body.

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.

So what do you think?  Is getting fit and losing weight a goal of yours?  


  1. I've been hearing about this too. My goal is maintaining now.

    1. That's good Nicole! I still have my work cut out for me.
