Daniel Plan

I know its been a long long time since I've posted on my blog.  I had to post because I'm so excited for Monday.  On Monday at 6pm, two of my good friends, my mom, and I will be starting the Daniel Plan. What is the Daniel Plan you ask?  It is a healthy eating plan developed by Saddleback Church in Orange County.  Dr. Oz, Dr. Amen, and Dr. Hymen are world renowned doctors and specialists in their fields.  They came up with this plan to help the congregation at Saddleback, and Rick Warren, the pastor, lose excess weight and get healthy.  It is bible based and there are videos and study guides on the Daniel Plan website.   It is a six week study, followed by a lifetime commitment.  The Daniel Plan is not a diet.  It is a healthy way of eating and living.  It is a lifestyle change and a way of life.  It is for the whole family.  Weight loss is a natural by-product of the Daniel Plan.  The basic premise is to eat whole foods, move our bodies, and glorify the Lord.

We have the rest of the week to get ready for this new life long adventure.  We need to buy lots of fresh fruits and veggies, lean meats, beans, and low fat dairy.  For the six week start, we will need to eliminate caffeine, sugar, and preservatives.  I'm so thankful the Lord has placed the four of us together to encourage and build each other up during this new way of eating.  I know we can do it!  Let's make it as fun and delicious as possible.  Love you guys.

  1. I'm glad you'll be chronicling this journey. Just last week I was wondering if you'd ever start blogging again.

    The Daniel Plan sounds really great. I hope you all have much success and fun along the way!
