Daniel Plan

A good Christian friend of mine and I just wrapped up a six-week health study series called The Daniel Plan.  The program was put together by the talented and blessed folks over at Saddleback Church in California and was designed in part by Dr. Oz, Dr. Daniel Amon and Dr. Mark Hyman.

Here's a complete program description, from the Daniel Plan website:

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.

The Daniel Plan includes guidance from three world-class medical authorities and other wellness professionals, including:
  • Functional medicine specialist Dr. Mark Hyman
  • Brain health expert Dr. Daniel Amen
  • Heart surgeon Dr. Mehmet Oz

If you're thinking this sounds pretty cool, you're pretty right.
We'll be bringing the Daniel Plan to Eindhoven in a bigger way in 2013. Stay tuned for details!
