Having conducted laboratory studies of the Daniel Fast since 2009, I believe that for many individuals, this dietary plan can be effectively used for weight loss and maintenance. Perhaps more important, the plan leads to improvements in measures of metabolic and cardiovascular health that cannot be seen by stepping on a scale. Following the plan calls individuals to learn about food and to read and understand food labels—providing a minicourse in nutrition education. This fact alone may be the most valuable aspect related to long-term dietary success, along with the spiritual gain and direction one experiences if following the Daniel Fast as a form of Christian fasting.
