Interview with Dee Eastman, Director of the Daniel Plan

By Brett Eastman

Steve Gladen and Brett Eastman interview Dee Eastman, Director of the Daniel Plan

Dee’s role will be to champion the Daniel Plan throughout the church, focusing on every small group in order for people to ‘achieve a more healthy and balanced lifestyle.’ She will focus on the Health Champions within each group to foster additional training and coaching in adopting the Daniel Plan, and encouraging their peers to do the same.

An experienced leader, she brings her background as a fitness and wellness instructor, and has earned a Bachelor of Science-Health Science from San Diego State University. For the last few years she has worked on the wellness team and lead fitness classes at the Montage Resort in Laguna Beach.

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.
