I am picking that he calls it the Daniel Plan because it is for a life time not just a period of fasting....
The Susan Gregory book sounds awesome....must get it.....

I hope to continue this type of healthy eating once I complete the Fast. Susan Gregory has a new book called "The Daniel Cure" which is something to follow when not fasting. I've downloaded the book to my kindle. Havent read it yet, but I believe some (types) sweetners are allowed.

Maybe a post can be made in the Spark People Cafe as a reminder to those that are doing a Daniel Fast that there is a SP group for it.

I'm just not giving up on me. I will never stop trying to be healthy, no matter my failures and shortcomings.

Well, when they have a product to sell, they have to "polish" for their target audience. Remember that the average human has an aversion to fasting.

I can do thisl!!

The Daniel Plan is suppose to be on Dr. Oz today

Watched on Dr. Oz. The Daniel Plan isn't the Daniel fast. Not even sure why they call it the Daniel Plan. You have animal protein, sweets etc... on it. Daniel didn't eat sweets, animal protein etc.... It looks more like a regular healthy diet.

I have known about The Daniel Plan for quite awhile. I have been trying to start a group though my church, I feel my pastor will have to get on first. Even without the support I decided about a month ago to go it alone. My idea was if others saw a change in me and my family then it would inspire them to join me, If a SP group is formed I know I won't have to go it alone. I would join if it formed. With all the press on The Daniel Plan in the past week, there shouldn't be a problem attracting people to joining. Of course have you seen how much weight Rick Waren has lost in the past 3 years, he is a testament to his own plan.

As we walk though this garden, that some call life there are many paths and ways to go. There is always someone there to help you along the way some may force you down their path or help you find your own. No matter what path you take there is a key in the garden. You must find it to survive!

I would be interested. But the blog is probably a good idea to spread the word. I wouldn't have even found this thread had I not looked for this sparkteam. I heard about the Daniel Fast from a Sparkfriend who is no longer on Spark very often. When I tried to find a Daniel Plan sparkteam, I couldn't find one but that's when I remembered this one. Even though both have different philosophies on eating, the whole point is having the plan being Christ-centered. I'm not a big Rick Warren follower either. I have read his Purpose-Driven life book, and for a time I did attend Celebrate Recovery, a Christian 12 step group who's program initially began at Saddleback Church and eventually spread to churches across the country. Maybe now that the book is out, there will be more interest. I know today my facebook feed is showing alot of media coverage as Rick Warren and the doctors involved with the plan are doing alot of interviews. I do like the idea of the program especially since it's not juust trying to help people get physically healthy but to improve their relationship with Christ and build community and fellowship in churches/ Christian community. The only problem I have is that the doctors involved I'm not sure are necessarily Christian but I think that's where Rick Warren comes in. If anyone has read The Maker's Diet food lists, alot of the approved food lists are similar. Although I will admit my budget does not allow for an all-organic diet. But I do try to buy produce according to the dirty dozen/clean 15 list as much as possible according to what's offered at Trader Joe's. But I did read an article online yesterday about Rick Warren dropping quite a bit of weight thru this program and his church members doing the same. I think part of the reason is the food and of course having the support of the body of Christ. I also read that he says that if you are physically unhealthy and overweight, you have no energy so you can't make a difference in the world. That's where the transformation comes in to play, it's not just eating right to look a certain way but to have energy to impact the world around us for Christ.

My hope was that there was something on SP too. I wonder if there are enough people who might want to be a SP "small group". It doesn't need to be in a church. Rick reminds us in his book that where 2 or more agree He's with us. I'm not a big Rick Warren follower but I like the concept of The Daniel Plan.

I just ordered the book on Amazon.com. I also got some free downloads including some teachings from Rick Warren and recipes. I did go on the site and look at the food list, it sounds pretty healthy and doable. Unfortunately I'm between churches right now so doing this with a church group isn't really an option right now. But maybe as the program spreads, more churches might offer that in the same ways Christian programs like Weigh Down Workshop and First Place have been offered in the past. It would be nice if there was some sort of support on spark. I work really early shifts so getting to any sort of meeting at a chuch, especially in the evening would be really hard. I can't really do a fast, I'm type 2 diabetic and need to eat something every 3-4 hours to keep my numbers in range.

I just heard about the Daniel Plan and am reading the book on my Nook. Part of the disciplines of the plan is fellowship or partnering with at least one other person. Have you been doing the Daniel Plan. I have to read more about it but it sounds interesting. I was hoping there would be more support on Spark People. The book is just coming out and all the supporting materials so perhaps there might be more interest. Let me know what you think.

Yes, there used to be a spark team called the Daniel plan but little interest was shown. It is a very healthy way of eating, eliminating sugar, white flour, preservatives... just imagine eating as healthy as possible and it is probably included in the Daniel Plan.

Have you all heard of the Daniel Plan?
The church by Pastor Rick Warren has done this plan with help from Dr. Oz.
It is pretty neat!
danielplan.com/

It's more of a lifestyle. A healthy way of living. It may be a good start before trying the full daniel fast and a good idea to continue with after the fast.
But I thought I'd share. :)
