Publisher's Summary

Revolutionize Your Health ...Once and for All...
During an afternoon of baptizing over 800 people, Pastor Rick Warren realized it was time for change. He told his congregation he needed to lose weight and asked if anyone wanted to join him. He thought maybe 200 people would sign up, instead he witnessed a movement unfold as 15,000 people lost over 260,000 pounds in the first year. With assistance from medical and fitness experts, Pastor Rick and thousands of people began a journey to transform their lives.Welcome to The Daniel Plan.
Here's the secret sauce: The Daniel Plan is designed to be done in a supportive community relying on God's instruction for living.When it comes to getting healthy, two are always better than one. Our research has revealed that people getting healthy together lose twice as much weight as those who do it alone. God never meant for you to go through life alone and that includes the journey to health.
Unlike the thousands of other books on the market, this book is not about a new diet, guilt-driven gym sessions, or shame-driven fasts. The Daniel Plan shows you how the powerful combination of faith, fitness, food, focus, and friends will change your health forever, transforming you in the most head-turning way imaginably - from the inside out.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No, not really. To be honest, I also found the program associated with it kind of amateurish and based, to some extent, on a faulty premise.

What was most disappointing about the authors’s story?

Perhaps it's a personal conceit, but I constantly felt I was twelve and be lectured by my father. Perhaps it was the author's and/or narrator's style. I'm not sure. It was just an impression, and I'm not excluding the possibility that any other reasonable person could walk away with an entirely different viewpoint.

Did Tom Parks do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

This book really wasn't about character's. While individuals certainly figure prominently with the tapestry of the book, it is more about lifestyle change than character development.

Was The Daniel Plan worth the listening time?

In so far as there are tools here for a healthier lifestyle, and in so far as I am a proponent for Christian living, I'd say yes. Unfortunately, the writing style ranks up there with most dryly written college textbooks.

Any additional comments?

This book has to be read or listened to in conjunction with a Daniel Plan program in order for it to have value.

If you could sum up The Daniel Plan in three words, what would they be?

Exciting, Eye opening, Exactly

What did you like best about this story?

This book help put all the aspects in life and work them in your good for your body. All other diet alway seem to leave something out. This book is able to take the 5 "F's" and work them in my life. Faith+Food+Fitness+Focus+Friends makes this journey so much fun and easy to transition to. I have seen a change in me and my church family and I thank God for not giving up on me. Rick Warren and his group of doctors for helping him with this book. It is changing lives so that I can reach my protential.

Have you listened to any of Tom Parks’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not listen to any of his other works but I would be interested in finding out more about them.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book was writen to me because it seem to bust every myth I had and give me some sound advise that I could look up bibically. I laugh when he says something that I was thinking.

Any additional comments?

This audio was so good I had to go out and get the book and the journal. The audio help to keep me on track and I can always go back and hear what I need to listen to again.
