The Daniel Plan is far more than a diet plan. It is an appetizing approach to achieving a healthy lifestyle by optimizing the five key essentials of faith, food, fitness, focus, and friends.

Your path to holistic health begins here, as Pastor Rick Warren and fitness and medical experts Dr. Daniel Amen and Dr. Mark Hyman guide you to incorporate healthy choices into your current lifestyle.
The concepts in this book will encourage you to deepen your relationship with God and develop a community of supportive friends who will encourage you to make smart food and fitness choices each and every day. This results in gradual changes that transform your life as they help you:

...with the review posted by DLCintheOC; she is spot on. This book needs a proofreader. Or maybe it's just that Rick Warren's philosophy of writing follows the philosophy expressed by the individual who observed that, "In order to produce a hit song, you need to break at least one grammatical rule." In that case, this book should be a bestseller. For someone like me, a writer who can't follow grammatical rules, uses incorrect terminology over and over (there's a difference between "healthy" and "healthful"), and insists on talking about "getting healthy" instead of "becoming healthy" doesn't make me think he's just plain folks; he makes me think that he is uneducated, and therefore unreliable in other things as well – namely, what he's writing about. Unfortunately, Mr. Warren's style perpetuates the popular conception of Christians as being uneducated Rubes who think you just have to utter the word "Jesus" in order to get a hearing from their fellow Rubes. I'm sorry to have to write this, because I like Rick Warren; I just wish that when he puts a book out on the market, he would realize how it affects his audience beyond the walls of The Saddleback community.
I bought this book and it does NOT download onto my iDevice any longer

The hardest thing about reading this book was… reading this book. It just wasn’t well-written. The writing style bored me, except when it was irritating me. It seemed to be a minimally edited mix of conversational writing (meh) and anecdotal, statistical writing (yawn), with a dose of viewpoint sales (grrr) thrown in. Still, my husband and I are hoping to try the diet, although reading through the recipes discouraged me. A number of recipe ingredients are foods I dislike, and then there’s all that work. But I digress… In my opinion, this book needed a ruthless editing to cut its excess verbiage and turn it into a short, readable, useful reference.
