Book Review #88 - The Daniel Cure By Susan Gregory & Richard J. Bloome

Synopsis:


One of the most popular fasts in recent years has been the Daniel Fast, a 21-day period of prayer and fasting based on the Old Testament prophet's fasts recorded in Daniel 1 and Daniel 10.

The Daniel Fast is a partial fast, in which certain foods are restricted and others are consumed. This fast is similar to a 'purified' vegan diet; in addition to the exclusion of all animal products, no additives, preservatives, sweeteners, caffeine, alcohol, white flour, or processed foods are allowed. With the Daniel Fast people can eat as much Daniel-Fast-friendly food as they would like. Though most people begin the Daniel Fast for a spiritual purpose, many are amazed by the physical transformation that takes place. Many with high cholesterol experience a drop to healthy levels; people who have wrestled with weight issues are suddenly able to lose the pounds. The vast majority of participants following the Daniel Fast report a general sense of well-being and increased energy. Recent published scientific studies of the Daniel Fast have confirmed these findings, with additional benefits, such as a reduction in systemic inflammation, a reduction in blood pressure, and an improvement in antioxidant defenses.

The Daniel Cure will help readers take the next step by focusing on the health benefits of the Daniel Fast. By following the advice in this book, readers will convert the Daniel Fast from a once-a-year spiritual discipline into a new way of life that can begin any time of the year. In a nation suffering an epidemic of obesity and its resulting ills, The Daniel Cure may be just what the Great Physician ordered.

The Daniel Cure includes a 21-Day Daniel Cure Devotional, four chapters detailing the lifestyle diseases of obesity, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and inflammation, eleven chapters of recipes and meal planning advice, a recipe index, complete nutritional guidance, and an appendix detailing 'The Science behind the Daniel Fast.'





My Take On This Book:

Honestly when I first began to read this and got deeper into the book, I just felt like this was just another book on losing weight and selling books. I do see some good points in the book do not get me wrong. For instance, we should all eat right if we do not want to put weight on and we want to be healthier of course. My favorite part of the book was the recipes, the biggest problem I have is I am not a cook. I do not like to cook, if I can take it from the oven to the table I am doing great. Now I use to like to cook but as I have gotten older, I just do not care much for it.

Therefore, my way of cooking is the Weight Watcher meals, but then I get bored with that and start my bad habits all over again. Therefore, for me this book would be a very good guideline as to the good things I can eat that do not take much as far as cooking. I am the type of person who loves fruit and vegetables. I can sit down with an apple and some peanut butter in the evening and have that for supper. Now if I would just add a vegetable to it I would be set. Now this is just my way of thinking, I know I do not eat right, so this would be a good guide so that I would know what is not good for me I suppose.

I received this book for free from Thomas Nelson part of the Booksneeze review bloggers program, for my honest and un-biased opinion.
