Dr. Mark Hyman boils down the keys to be successful with The Daniel Plan meal plan. In this brief video, he explains the four principles of foods to eat as well as the foods to eliminate. The accompanying article goes into more detail. The concept is to eat foods grown on a plant, not made in a plant. He introduces terms like “Real, Whole Foods” which include fresh, phyto-nutrient dense fruits and vegetables, whole grains, beans, nuts and lean animal protein. Watch this and get on the The Daniel Plan journey!

Question?? "No fruit juices"??Do you think that drinking fresh squeezed orange juice is also included in his description of "No Fruit Juices"?Thanks

I'm learning so much from Dr. Hyman. Thank you so much. I've lost 15 pounds already just cutting out foods that are not good for me.

I have thought Lg Fish should not be eaten since they only have babies very rarely but why do you day we should not eat them?

I'm cleaning out my cupboards and there's plenty left, but so much to buy. I think this is going to be really good for me.

Scott- Fresh squeezed orange juice is totally fine. It's coming from the raw product, rather then in a packaged source where they add all the extra sugar and corn syrup. :)

Cayla and Scott, I partially disagree here. Sure, it is a lot better than many other drinks, but not nearly as good as just eating a real, whole orange. Don't bother squeezing out and drinking all the sugars...eat it entirely to include the fiber that will help your body process the sugars. When you make a glass of orange juice, it usually takes a few oranges - is that how many you'd actually eat in one sitting? Probably not. So instead of consuming the sugars in 3 oranges, consume the sugar AND FIBER and vitamins available from one orange. I think that's the idea. Avoid juices and eat the whole fruit.

I wish we had a "Like" botton here! :)Regarding the large or small fish, what I know is that large fish have more mercury concentration, for them eating smaller fish, so there is an acumulation of mercury. However, eating salmon, which is a large fish, is beneficial based on the high Omega-3 amount they have, so the benefit is higher than avoiding it.
