The Daniel Plan is not just another “diet”. It’s a lifestyle based on the biblical story of Daniel, who forsook the king’s rich food in order to honor God’s best for him and his friends. The Daniel Plan focuses on “The Simple Six” Core Principles, including the following:
CONNECT for Success – Get in touch with your health and with others!
RELY on God’s Power – Willpower is not enough. You need God’s power.
EAT Delicious Whole Foods – Imagine the Garden of Eden as your food source.
MOVE Your Way to Health – Get going. The more exercise, the more energy!
THINK Sharper and Smarter – Better brain health = better life!
HEAL for Life – Make a game plan for permanent changes that heal.
