Whether you’re flirting with the idea of being on The Daniel Plan, slowly dipping your toes in, or jumping in with both feet, during the first week, we encourage you to “know your numbers” and record your current status. As Dr. Daniel Amen said Saturday at the kick-off seminar, you can’t determine how to get somewhere if you don’t know where you are starting!
Click “Get Started,” and create your “Health Profile” where you will enter in a variety of information about your current condition. The site will save your statistics so you can compare your progress down the road. All the information is private, voluntary, and optional.
To help you get started on this journey, get your height, weight, blood pressure, measurements, and “before” pictures taken on your church campus this weekend. Then, you can add this information to your profile. We also recommend knowing your Body Mass Index (BMI), completing the Medical Symptom/Toxicity Questionnaire (MSQ), and if possible, getting a “full blood panel.”
Coming soon…watch an in-depth video explanation from Dr. Mark Hyman regarding “Knowing Your Numbers.” In addition, the doctors will be providing optional quizzes to help gauge your starting point.
And, if you haven’t already, join or start a small group! We’re better together!
Coming Soon! Watch www.danielplan.com in the next few days for an in-depth discussion with Dr. Mark Hyman regarding “Knowing your numbers;” learn how to be “Supermarket Savvy” and what foods to buy and to avoid; and we will be posting segments from Saturday’s kick-off Health & Fitness Seminar for your viewing pleasure!
PUTTING IT INTO PRACTICE
If you’ve completed your profile, recorded your measurements, taken the quizzes and joined or started a small group, then you’re doing great! More exciting information, videos and training are on the way! In the meantime, the doctors suggest to begin adjusting your daily diet with natural foods and include 30 minutes of exercise per day. Also, avoid sodas and high-sugar juices and instead enjoy unsweetened–or lightly sweetened–green tea or ice cold water!
