role in establishing and testing our
relationship with God.

than ever, and nutritional related diseases are at an all time high.

You wonʼt be perfect, just keep getting better.
HONOR GOD WITH YOUR BODY
Improving how you feed your body shows respect for the body
God has given you.
This should not produce frustration or make you feel pressured,
again if you are doing it for God you will have “inspired
obedience” to improve.
No one follows a diet without error. When mistakes are made
learn and persevere, but do not lose hope.
Romans 5:3-5 “We know that suffering produces
perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.
And hope does not disappoint us.
Since a healthier eating program gives you more energy, greater
strength, increased mental awareness, and more time on this
planet what you put in your mouth affects others! Eat for 3.
Friday, January 22, 2010 7
It is next to impossible to be successful or healthy long-term without acknowledging God in all
areas of your life.
If you lead a longer, healthier life you can do more for God and loved ones.
EATING FOR THREE
Ever notice that when you are doing something for yourself, it is
more difficult to stay committed to than if you are doing it for
others? Eat for 3:
1. for me
2. for the people around me
3. for God.
Daniel ate for three
The king selected unblemished, wise young men to serve.
Daily food & wine was allocated from his table. The royal food
was unhealthy (animals sacrificed to other gods). Despite
pressure from the king, temptation from his own body, and
knowing that everyone around him was eating this way, Daniel
was faithful to his Lord and did not defile his body with the
Friday, January 22, 2010 8
Daniel asked for permission not to eat this food and was shown favor by the chief court ofﬁcial.
Daniel convinced the ofﬁcial to feed him only vegetables and water for 10 days and test him
against those eating the royal food. Daniel looked healthier & better nourished than other
Daniel’s courage and obedience, which came through a love
for God, brought him many blessings. When you eat for 3, you
will find that it is not painful sacrifice, but full of pleasures and
blessings that far exceed any of the foods that tempt you.

LIVING TO EAT VS. EATING TO LIVE
Don’t give up loving to eat, but get
better at choosing what you eat.
Looking at nutrition as “diets”
traps you in a mental prison.
Never say never*
Eating plan includes meals or
days of things you love.
Well placed vacations from your
eating program are an important
part of the program!
necessary for mental &
emotional health, and to enjoy
life to its fullest.

*Never say “thats my last piece of chocolate, coffee” because you will instantly want it. When
you begin to improve, you will still like pizza, ice cream, donuts..if you eat one, donʼt feel guilty
but learn from it. How did you feel after?
Dieting is painful, and the pain is cumulative. The longer you diet, the more powerful the
desire to binge eat is.
LIVING TO EAT VS. EATING TO LIVE
You will begin to prefer the
cleaner, fresher taste of healthy
The permanent pleasures
associated with eating well
usually far outweigh the
temporary pleasures of taste.
Food by God is packed with
living vitamins, minerals, water,
fiber, and enzymes needed to
digest the food itself.
Friday, January 22, 2010 11
Permanent pleasures = better health, higher energy, more restful sleep, increased work
Extremely affordable to purchase fresh or frozen fruit/veg, rice, & potatos in bulk.
Compared to prepackaged foods eggs, chicken, salmon, & turkey are affordable
Farmerʼs Market, Community Supported Agriculture.
FOOD BY MAN
Any food that is created or altered by man. It is food that God did
not design for the express purpose of being used by your body.
The farther these foods are from their natural
forms, the harder they are to digest.
Since they cannot pass through your digestive system
quickly or be broken down, they linger inside your body:
•Blocks the processing of other nutrients
•Contaminates your organs
•Create excess fat storage
•Affects your mood

2 Hydrogen + 2 Oxygen = H2O2 (hydrogen peroxide)
Friday, January 22, 2010 12
Food by man lacks life or any truly usable nutrition. Anything devoid of nutrition or life is
unlikely to sustain life.
FOOD BY MAN
Americans do not actually eat more

and chemicals in our foods are not even of God.”
allowed in other parts of the world! --1 Corinthians 10:31
If you feed your body with food by man,
the energy required to operate the
digestive system becomes so great that
power is robbed from other systems of
Synthetic, refined, or chemically altered
foods that say “low fat,” “reduced
cholesterol,” “no sugar,” will never
grant long term health or thinness.
Friday, January 22, 2010 13
most European diets contain much more rich and fattening foods.
Excessive obesity and high rate of nutritional diseases is related less to how much we eat, and
much more to what is done to those foods.
Any foods that man creates cannot be considered “health & diet food”

FOOD BY MAN - MEAT
Common Sense - If you have to cook it
thoroughly to avoid contracting a disease,
overuse of it is bad.
Most of our meat are not roaming free in
nature & feeding on grass.
Commercial Animal farms
These factories speed up production
and avoid dealing with health issues by
feeding and injecting:
large amounts of antibiotics
drugs & hormones (wonder why kids
hit puberty faster?)
This meat is manufactured and tainted
by man. High in fat & cholesterol since
they are grain fed.

As you get older, your body is less equipped to break down milk.
Dairy products are a leading cause of allergic reaction and immune problems.
Milk creates an acidic environment inside your body that causes deterioration of bone tissue.
Use Rice Milk, Almond Milk instead.
FOODS IN BALANCE
Food types: Carbs, Proteins, Fats
Carbohydrates - designed to
be broken down into sugar
and used for power.
Proteins - Best source of
amino acids (building,
healing, repairing). Not a
good source of power.
Fats - Insulation & protection
of organs, store & transport
vitamins, healthy brain & cell
function, hormone production
Friday, January 22, 2010 18
FOODS IN BALANCE - CARBS
Unrefined carbohydrates slowly convert to
sugar in the system for safe, sustained levels of
power. (Consume in AM and pre/post exercise)
Carbs are also responsible for holding water
inside body tissues.
Without Carbs, the body would break down its
own muscles for energy use.
Fruits & Vegetables (Living waters)
Mostly water with high quality living
vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fiber.
Whole Grains - rice (brown/basmati/jasmine),
oats, & rye.
Sugar - straight sugars cause huge rise in blood
sugar and stresses your whole body. Best is
fruits & honey.
Too many Carbs - sugar overload. Can cause
pancreatic and glandular dysfunction, blood &
brain chemistry problems, and is stored as fat.
Friday, January 22, 2010 19
whole grain bread, cereals, & pasta are decent, but are still partially reﬁned.
Carb energy input should be in proportion to how much energy u put out. you arenʼt running a
marathon in your sleep, & the body works hard at processing all this energy with no outlet =
you wake up tired.
FOODS IN BALANCE - PROTEINS
Present in all foods, but most
abundant in animal products.
Animal proteins do not affect
Nuts, Seeds, Beans, Whole
Too much protein - The amount
of drugs used on commercial
animals & chemicals used in
refined proteins make high
protein diets toxic and hard on
the immune system.
Proteins & Carbs don’t mix well
Friday, January 22, 2010 20
meals should have a carbohydrate focus or protein focus
FOODS IN BALANCE - FATS
Fats reduce hunger signals
Good Fats - Omega 3
beneficial for cardiovascular,
joint, and immune system
Found in fish, fish oils, grass fed
animals, flaxseed, walnuts.
Other good fats: almonds, EVOO,
coconut oil, avocados, and
evening primrose oil.
Fats to avoid - Omega 6
Have overall inflammatory effect
Found in processed foods, meats,
vegetable oils, nut oils, seed oils.
Too much fat - Will make you fat.
Friday, January 22, 2010 21
Omega ratios should be 1:1 (currently in America 20:1 Omega6:Omega3)
FOOD IN BALANCE - COMBINING
1. Small amounts of protein/fats
with large amount of carbs. The
protein and fat will slow the rise
in blood sugar and insulin from
2. Large serving of proteins with
moderate amount of fats.
1. Large amounts of fat with larger
servings of Carbs
2. Too much of all (Too many fats,
carbs, & proteins should always
be eaten in the presence of a
physician trained in CPR or close
to a hospital!)
Friday, January 22, 2010 22
1. egg & oatmeal, toast with EVOO, sweet potato w/ﬂaxseed
2. salmon w/avocado salad, chicken/broccoli stir fry EVOO, omelot w/ coconut oil
1. pizza, linguini alfredo, donuts, pancakes, loaded potato, bread/butter
2.cheeseburger & fries, steak & cheese sub.
FOODS IN BALANCE - ACIDS/BASES
Your body flourishes in a basic
environment. Being acidic is burning,
boiling, or melting your cells.
Acidic blood accelerates bone loss,
arthritic degeneration, and brain/artery
Body will always try to balance acids, and
it does so with Calcium from your bones.
Acids created by: commercial dairy,
flour, sugar, caffeine, animal products.
Vegetables are incredibly good at
creating a basic environment.
Water - flushes out toxins and acids
Friday, January 22, 2010 23
Calcium from bones: Ca Phosphate & Ca Carbonate
The quality of ﬂuid in your cells is determined by the quality of ﬂuid you ingest. Never drink
anything you wouldnʼt bathe in!
ONLY GOD HEALS
Foods & Vitamins don’t heal

His power, all the vitamins

Vitamin C, or any other letter of the alphabet is not a “cure” for the cold, but your bodyʼs

METABOLISM & PGS
You are not “lucky” to have a high metabolism or “unlucky” to
have a low metabolism

ACTION STEPS WEEK 2
Eat 5 foods by God per day
Eat enough times to not be hungry (4-5)
Choose any simple exercise to do three times a
week for 20 minutes
walk briskly, jog, bike
Try to be Result-less
Better to have 1 win and 20 losses than no
losses...and no wins!
All Bible heroes (except Jesus) have failure in
common. Failures are very often one of the
road signs down God’s road of success or
where He desires you to be. Don’t let failure
stop you from winning.
Start the day with a Spiritual Triathlon
5 minutes prayer time, 5 minutes Bible time,
5 minutes quiet time (at least)
