Would you believe that God does not want you to live a life of deprivation? Jesus says we’re to live life, and live it abundantly. The problem is we often make choices that undermine the abundant life. You will experience that by making small changes over time will yield big results.

During The Daniel Plan pilot program at Saddleback Church, over 15,000 people lost over 260,000 pounds in the first year. Beyond weight loss, people reported improved energy, better sleep, lower cholesterol levels, elimination of medications as well as restoring their passion and purpose for life.

These incredible results are not because of an intense diet; rather, they are due to a lifestyle change. The weight loss is simply one of the amazing side effects.

The best part of the journey is the ripple effect you will experience along the way.  As you incorporate more whole foods on your plate, and fitness into your routine you will start feeling better, which often leads to being motivated to make change in other area of your life.

 I’ve learned that The Daniel Plan involves much more than weight loss. This is a journey towards living a healthier life. ~ Chloe Seals

Prior to The Daniel Plan I had very little energy and no stamina. I had a difficult time focusing and remembering. I was unmotivated and discouraged. I wasn’t living, I was surviving.
~ Melanie Black

Being on the journey with a great group of guys has given me the confidence and inspiration to continue to get healthy. Because of The Daniel Plan and our Saddleback Men’s Herd Saturday meeting I am a better man, a better husband, a better father and a better Christian. I’m healthier. ~ Robert Sturm

The Daniel Plan gave me real motivation to get healthier…serving those who are close to me and service in my ministries. I have more energy to accomplish both! ~ Tim Osborn

I am so happy and I can’t even begin to describe how much better I feel physically, mentally and spiritually – it has truly been a rejuvenating and blessed journey. ~ Simon Holtti
