From the Back Cover
Steve had been overweight all his life. In fact, he weighed more than 100 pounds in the first grade! After playing football during high school and college, he vowed never to exercise or run laps again. That was one promise he kept, ballooning to 340 pounds and staying there for years. Driven by his declining health, Steve began to study Scripture. He discovered four keys to unlock the door to health and fitness:
Honoring God with Your Body
Motivating Yourself for Change
3. Eat and Exercise:
Managing Your Habits
Building Your Circle of Support
In Bod4God, Steve Reynolds—whom the media labeled “the Anti-Fat Pastor” after he lost more than 100 pounds—shares the simple lifestyle changes, both inside and out, that have led to his incredible weight loss. He shows how you can change your life forever by committing your body to God’s glory. One of the biggest reasons most people fail on traditional diet plans is that they are required to eat what the plan tells them to eat. This approach simply doesn’t work, because we don’t all have the same appetites, background or circumstances! Bod4God helps you craft your own personal plan that you will follow gladly for the rest of your life. In addition, you’ll find out how your local church can impact the health of your entire community by hosting “Losing to Live” events, such as weight-loss competitions and team-driven fitness campaigns. Be a loser . . . and gain a new lease on the life God made you to live!
