<p>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.</p><p> </p><p>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.</p><p> </p><p><em>The Daniel Cure</em> 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, <em>The Daniel Cure</em> may be just what the Great Physician ordered.</p><p> </p><p><em>The Daniel Cure </em>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.'</p>

<p><b>"I believe that the discoveries in this book can change our understanding of how we store emotional experiences and in so doing, change our lives. <i>The Emotion Code</i> has already changed many lives around the world, and it is my hope that millions more will be led to use this simple tool to heal themselves and their loved ones."—Tony Robbins</b></p><p>In this newly revised and expanded edition of <i>The Emotion Code</i>, renowned holistic physician and lecturer Dr. Bradley Nelson skillfully lays bare the inner workings of the subconscious mind. He reveals how emotionally-charged events from your past can still be haunting you in the form of "trapped emotions"—emotional energies that literally inhabit your body. These trapped emotions can fester in your life and body, creating pain, malfunction, and eventual disease. They can also extract a heavy mental and emotional toll on you, impacting how you think, the choices that you make, and the level of success and abundance you are able to achieve. Perhaps most damaging of all, trapped emotional energies can gather around your heart, cutting off your ability to give and receive love. </p><p> <i>The Emotion Code</i> is a powerful and simple way to rid yourself of this unseen baggage. Dr. Nelson’s method gives you the tools to identify and release the trapped emotions in your life, eliminating your “emotional baggage,” and opening your heart and body to the positive energies of the world. Filled with real-world examples from many years of clinical practice, <i>The Emotion Code</i> is a distinct and authoritative work that has become a classic on self-healing.</p>

<b>As Seen on the TODAY Show -1/07/2020</b><br /><br /><b>USA TODAY Bestselling Author Stephanie Laska lost 140 pounds</b>, roughly half of her body weight, by following a ketogenic inspired diet. She figured out the secret to losing weight without the crazy restrictions of a traditional keto diet by following a <b>“dirty”</b> and <b>“lazy”</b> version of keto.<br /><br />Stephanie spent most of her adult life in the Morbidly Obese Class III BMI category. Hovering close to <b>300 pounds</b>, she avoided booths at restaurants and feared not fitting into amusement park rides. “I once put my jacket over my lap so the flight attendant wouldn’t see that my seatbelt wouldn’t close,” she admits.<br /><br />It wasn’t until a friend suggested she could continue to drink beer while still losing weight that Stephanie decided to “try one last time”. <b>Any diet that included loopholes for having a cold beer might be worth a try, she reflected.</b><br /><br />Through trial and error, Stephanie learned how eating a low carb, moderate protein, higher fat diet could finally nudge her weight in the right direction. “This is the weirdest diet ever!” went through her mind every time she got on the scale. Coming from an era of eating Fruit Loops washed down with a pitcher of Kool-Aid, Stephanie was clueless about the metabolic effects of consuming too many carbohydrates.<br /><br /><b>DIRTY, LAZY, KETO</b> is the unique diet Stephanie followed to achieve her success. Using humor and simple explanations, Stephanie walks the reader through her personal manifesto for weight loss and maintenance. This beginner's guide is chock full of helpful strategies and food lists for you to immediately employ.<br /><br />Stephanie has kept her weight off for seven years. She left behind a giant dent on the couch to run twelve marathons. As part of the elite “Clean Start Team”, Stephanie even ran the New York City Marathon in 2017 as a sponsored athlete for PowerBar. You might have caught her cooking debut with Al Roker on NBC’s <b>TODAY Show.</b> Her story and image have been celebrated in articles in <b>FOX News</b>, <b>The New York Post</b>, <b>Reader’s Digest</b>, <b>Yahoo News</b>, <b>Muscle and Fitness: Hers</b>, <b>Keto for You</b>, <b>RunDisney</b>, and <b>Costco Connection</b> Magazine. She even defends the dirty keto lifestyle in an online <b>Playboy</b> interview (May 2019). You might have even seen Stephanie’s bikini photo (summer 2019) in <b>First for Women</b> Magazine!<br /><br />Stephanie's hope is that the reader will leave inspired and armed with enough information to get started on their own journey of personalized weight loss success.<br /><br />Let’s discuss the goals of this down and dirty mini-guide. By the end, the reader will be able to:<br /><br /><ul><li>Partner with your physician to set realistic goals based on your current health<br /><li>Understand the difference between a DIRTY, LAZY, KETO diet and a Strict Keto Diet<br /><li>Accurately read a nutrition label and count the net carbs per serving<br /><li>Confidently shop for ingredients that you need to be successful<br /><li>Stock your fridge and pantry with appropriate foods for cooking and snacking<br /><li>Prepare quick and easy meals, drinks, snacks, and desserts that are on plan<br /><li>Strategize ways to prevent dehydration<br /><li>Recognize and stop efforts at self-sabotage<br /><li>Have a long-term plan for healthy, sustainable weight loss</ul><br />Stephanie is even willing to share her weekly grocery list with you to help you get started.

With a negative environment around me and only my faith in God and my son to inspire me, I made it out of my self-made prison, called my body.
