The book, Common Sense Biblical Approach to Health and Fitness by yours truly, Tim Frady, the webmaster of hip2bfit.com and self-professed fitness enthusiast, bridges the gap between church and the gym. Christians love to eat as much as everyone else, which isn't a bad thing, as long as we take care and pay attention to what we eat. My book gives an old fashioned, yet up to date, look at health and fitness from a Christian perspective, based on the latest science and health and fitness news.
I examine what the Bible teaches us that can help us not only in our spiritual walk, but also help us to live longer, healthier, happier lives. At the same time, we look at when organic food is preferred to conventional. Also, I discuss the addictive nature of sugar that Christians and non-Christians alike suffer from. Sugar has become the new drug of choice for those who would never dream of taking drugs, smoking, or even drinking alcohol.
We explore the end result of sugar addictions, that being the obesity epidemic, how to lose weight and keep it off, and more. Common Sense Biblical Approach to Health and Fitness is a call for Christians and non-Christians alike to live the simpler, healthier lives that God originally intended for us.
I list many super foods and how to make changes to an unhealthy lifestyle to get on track to a healthier lifestyle. Also, I discuss what doctors are saying about fasting. Is it healthy or not?
All the way through we look at scripture, especially those that relate to health and prolonging our time on earth.
The fear of the LORD prolongeth days: but the years of the wicked shall be shortened .
Proverbs 17:22 that reads:
A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.
As Proverbs 17:22 points out, sometimes medicine doesn't always come in a bottle. A Biblical attitude toward life is as important to health and fitness as eating right and exercising.
I hope you'll pick up a copy of my book for yourself and discover how many ways God's Word holds the key to longer life, as well as spiritual fulfillment. Hopefully it will motivate you to lose weight, exercise, and follow the Bible for a healthy balanced lifestyle.
