Grand Rapids, Mich., April 12, 2016 — Zondervan, in partnership with Saddleback Church, is releasing a mobile app to help consumers live a heathier life as they follow the Daniel Plan. The healthy lifestyle program is detailed in the New York Times bestseller The Daniel Plan: 40 Days to a Healthier Life by Pastor Rick Warren, Drs. Daniel Amen and Mark Hyman, which has sold over 1.5 million copies. The mobile app is designed to help users track daily progress in the five Daniel Plan essential areas: faith, food, fitness, focus and friends. The free app is available for apple and android devices and sold in the Apple App Store and on Google play.

“The Daniel Plan is far more than a diet; it is about living a healthier life based on biblical principles,” said Warren. “While all five essentials are necessary, it is the components of faith and friends that I believe are the secret sauce that make the plan so effective. When you have God and a group helping you stay on track, you have far more than willpower driving you to make positive changes and you are far more likely to stay consistent.”

The Daniel Plan app gives users the ability to:

  • Track their daily progress in all five essentials: faith, food, fitness, focus and friends.
  • Record what they eat and make adjustments for success.
  • Stay focused on the plan with encouraging quotes from Dr. Rick Warren, Dr. Daniel Amen, Dr. Mark Hyman and other contributors.
  • Set goals and journal their steps to achievement.
  • Take advantage of free bonus resources to help them along their journey to healthier living.

“This app is like a good friend who reminds me to stay focused encourages me and helps me stay on track with The Daniel Plan,” said Dr. Amen.
