"Excessive weight can be a cruel master," says fitness expert, Brett Royer. "It often determines what you'll wear, where you go, what kind of car you buy, what type of chair you sit in, or what sports and activities you participate in...Obesity can affect your relationships and even your employment."
Most important, he says, "You can miss what God is trying to tell you when your mind is on yourself more than it is on Him. Food becomes an idol when weight controls your moods and your life. Guilt, shame, and condemnation can weigh you down. Your thoughts can become your worst enemy." Royer speaks from experience, in The Consecrated Diet - Bringing God to Your Table and Gym.
In detailed chapters, he explains the physical, psychological and spiritual results of being overweight and out of shape. But he doesn't stop there; he gives specific guidelines regarding healthy eating and exercise, that will bring you into a right standing with yourself, so that you can have a more fulfilling relationship with God. Packed with photo illustrations of exercise routines, he lays out a plan that even the most obese and out-of-shape Christian can live with. And, he does all of this with a sympathetic heart and understanding spirit. The Consecrated Diet could be what you have been looking for, to help you get off the couch and onto the road to a healthier lifestyle.
