What is The Daniel Plan?

The Simple Six: Core Principles & Action Steps

  1. CONNECT for Success
    Ask a friend or two to join or support you on your journey because “we’re better together.” Start or join a small group. Online groups available too.
  2. RELY on God's Power
    Seek God’s power to help make changes to your health and life.
  3. EAT Delicious Whole Foods
    Have 70% of your daily diet consist of whole, living foods including raw or lightly cooked vegetables, fruit, raw nuts and seeds. The other 30% can include lean protein, whole grains and starchy vegetables.

    • Supplement your diet with high quality vitamins Omega-3, Vit. D, and a multi-vitamin.
    • Eat nutritious breakfast that includes protein. Add healthy snacks throughout the day. Low fat lunches. Light dinners (don’t eat within three hours of bedtime).
