Dr Oz: The Daniel Plan
Doctor Oz did a segment on how Pastor Rick Warren lost weight on The Daniel Plan. Pastor Warren stated that weight loss groups are important because God has wired us to need each other. Several passages in the bible reference this idea. It is the mutual service to each other that will keep us successful. The long-term behavior came from the group support. One of the best parts about The Daniel Plan is that you form lasting relationships and it’s FREE! Pastor Warren’s words of wisdom; if it grows on a plant—eat it. If made in a plant—don’t eat it.
