While this book is about why and how to do The Daniel Fast for weight loss, I realized that the Biblical principles apply to daily life as much as they apply to the fast. The principles are universal and can be applied to fasting, working, raising a family, marriage, etc. Understanding what motivates us is a great way to examine where we spend our time in “worship” and teaches us what it means to truly submit to God’s will.
The rules of fasting really do apply to every day living and by simply applying common sense rules of healthy living… eat fresh, unprocessed foods, everything in moderation, exercise, drink water, we will be well on our way to a new, healthy lifestyle. The author does a great job of breaking this down in simple terms, something that so many “diet books” tend to over analyze and overstate.
This book does an excellent job of teaching The Daniel Fast, but also leaves readers with Biblical tools for life. I really learned a lot and enjoyed it immensely!
