Daniel Challenge

Kyle Reed // @kylereed

I have decided to take on a challenge for the week. It is called the Daniel Challenge and was recommended to me by my friend Adam Everett. He completed it as well as Dan Maricle (another friend of mine) completed it with him. The fast/diet calls for strict adherence to what Daniel (in the Bible, the guy in the lions den) ate. For more info check Daniel 1.

Pretty much, it callsto be  a vegan for the week. No meat, milk, or processed food. I love milk and I love meat, but the hardest part is going to be no coffee. Coffee is the wellspring of life and I drink from that well.

You might be wondering why I am taking up this challenge? I am wondering the same thing. Actually I have been working on eating better since January (not my new years resolution) and have been working out since November. I have lost 15 pounds in the last three months and am down to 188. I wanted to try a new challenge this week, and I am going to Hawaii next week. I hope to get down to 185 and continue with my healthy eating until the end of May and see where I am at.

If you are interested in the Daniel Challenge, let me know and I will email you the PDF.

    You’re only doing it for a week? I thought Adam and Dan did it for 40 days???

    “To these four young men God gave knowledge and understanding of all kinds of literature and learning. And Kyle could understand visions and dreams of all kinds.”

    I expect this at the end of your ten days.

    Just to boost you spirits Kyle, at 188, you actually weigh 10 pounds less than me. Marriage weight, it’s worth it.

    Ya, I was hoping that I would be skinnier than someone. Glad to hear that you are getting fat now Ryan.
    Dear Mother Teresa, I will work on that. Come talk to me in a week and we will see what happens.
    Big O, I am only doing it for a week because, A) I am going to Hawaii next week and don’t want to be doing it then B) I don’t know if I can make it any longer than a week without “real” food C) They only did it for 2 weeks, I think.

      I can’t drink any type of coffee. Really the only thing I can drink is water and soy milk. Thats about it.

    You made fun of Kyle for drinking “girly…creamed coffee,” and then you giggled. Come on man.
