Are you an overweight Christian, if so do not despair, I am quite certain you are not alone. All that extra weight you are carrying around is keeping you from doing all you can, and you need to shed those extra pounds to continue to live your life by God’s plan. Therefore, I’d like to recommend a very good diet book for you, one that understands the Christian Soul and helps the reader get through the hard work of losing weight. The name of the book is:
“The Maker’s Diet – The 40-day Health Experience that will Change Your Life Forever,” by Jordan S. Rubin NMD, PhD., Siloam Publishers, Lake Mary Florida, 2004, 304 pages, ISBN: 0-88419-948-7.
This book is like a series of sermons, with scripture quotes, mostly from the King James version of the Bible. This is a real step-by-step guide perfect for the Christian Soul, allowing one who has accepted Jesus Christ as their savior to help them through the difficult issues of changing habits and eating behavior, also allowing them to find external strength when nothing else has worked.
Since the author is not only a degreed nutritionist, but also a doctor with a PhD he also examines why so many crash diets are unhealthy and lead to disease due to failure to intake the proper nutrients while cutting the food supply. He starts the book by discussing boosting the immune system as a first and most important step, also discharging belly-bulge from inflammation. That must happen first, to see where you are at with the fat cells.
He then protects the reader from issues such as anorexia so that everyone realizes the reality between proper weight, body fat, and height – it matters and he explains why. In this book he shows that no diet will be successful without exercise, as that is how he tells the reader that God had designed the body from the very beginning with the proverbial Adam and Eve. By improving physical performance, increasing energy from exercise, and looking better it helps the reader find God and go to the next step.
That would be eating right, healthy and reducing stress by finding God and bringing him deeper into your heart, body, mind, and soul. What many do not understand is the importance of digestion, so he devotes many pages to explaining all that as well. Jordan, the author, is quite famous for his books and TV appearances on dietary topics, practically a TV evangelist in that regard. He also has been published in numerous medical journals on nutrition. Much of his research is spelled out in this book, in very easy and simple to understand terms.
This book was very good and I’d recommend it to any of my Christian friends, in fact, I am currently thinking of someone I might give it to. Please consider all this and think on it.
