This is an overall great overview of fitness and health. Kardashian, with enthusiasm and passion, details that diet and exercise are a full body, soul, emotion and mind connection. Without a change in how we think, any changes made will be only temporary.

This book is not a detailed diet book. There are few if any recipes. A list of good foods and avoidance foods are included, as are suggestions on how to find them. But the diet portion is just a few pages. The majority of the book is focused on changing the mindset from "doomed-to-be" to "this is whom I'm becoming." This change in thinking is very Biblically based and there are lots of scriptures and God talk within. Kardashian spends quite a bit of time of negative vs positive self-talk and explores some fascinating self-fulfilling prophecy type thinking. There is a section with pictures of exercise which was helpful. The included DVD was even more helpful in that area. He has a few moves I haven't seen elsewhere. There is very little rigidity. Those who want a "do-this-now, do-this-right-before-dinner" type of diet/fitness plan probably won't find satisfaction. Self-starters and those ready to change will benefit the most.

Those who don't really want God involved in the process will likely be frustrated. But then again, those folks might not pick it up in the first place. If you are looking for a real change and are open to letting God in on the process you could invest your money in far worse ways. With the included DVD, the cost of this book could be the perfect investment into changing your life at a bargain basement cost. If you don't want to change or if it will eventually end on a garage sale table or collecting dust on a bookshelf, don't bother.

In the book "Getting in Shape God's Way" Ron Kardashian shares the four keys that he discovered which led him into living a healthy lifestyle. Ron establishes a 40 day experience plan for fitness that encompasses a change in spiritual, physical, and mental well being. These practical guidelines and principles are drawn from the Bible and help the reader determine answers to the "why to?" and "how to?" questions for finding lasting success in living and abundantly hale and hearty way of life.

The reader is challenged to allow Ron to become their personal trainer and life coach as they commit themselves to this life changing process of getting in shape God's way. This concept resonated with me as I read the book, assimilated the "fitness beliefs," and completed the "take action" assignments. I appreciated the natural progression of the contents and presentation of the plan from conception to manifestation to working it out.

Kardashian's training, credentials, and personal example qualify him to author this book. His unique straight forward writing style and approach to healthy living have won him the acclaim of both spiritual leaders and fitness experts.

The plan presented in "Getting in Shape God's Way" embraces principles I am personally committing to pursue and incorporate into my personal daily walk with God.

Ron Kardashian provides something REAL. Real accredited advice, a real testimony, and real hope for my own story. He wasn't caught up in selling the final deal, manipulating the means for the end. I really appreciated his heart for the journey. In the end, when I look at myself in the mirror, I don't wonder who the "healthy" person is staring back at me, I know her inside and out because I grew in the process physically, mentally, and spiritually. This wholistic approach left me assured in who I was as who I was created to be. If you have lost faith in dieting plans, chin up because this is not another diet, it is a revolutionary lifestyle that starts right where you are. If you don't agree with the spiritual aspect of the book, I challenge you to test out the words, especially chapter six on mouth fitness. See the change for yourself. If you don't know where to begin, months after your New Year's Resolution crumbled, Kardashian dedicated this book to you. "May the blood, sweat, tears, and triumphs experienced bring you to the place of total freedom--in your spirit, your soul, and your physical body. Go for your dreams! Never give up! And you will see them come to pass!"

In short, this is better than Opera and its on sale!

I have been a member of Weight Watcher's, and completed the Body for life program. I got the results each program promised, yet each one was only temporarily successful. Getting in Shape God's Way is the first book that I have read that addresses the whole man -- spirit, soul, and body! A change of mind, and a willingness to commit to a workout program is not enough. A spiritual transformation must be part of a program for lasting results. Ron Kardashian has put forth the 4 keys to making any diet and fitness program work. He has also made it simple, and inexpensive. A $13 fitness band is all the 'equipment' you need to purchase in addition to the book, which comes with a DVD. I found the only truly complete "fitness for life" program that I believe produce lasting results. Thanks Ron!!!

Ron Kardashian has written a great book, Getting In Shape Gods Way has motivated me in a way nothing else has before. The practical application of his tips and exercises are excellent. I especially like the food charts in the back of the book "The World's Best Foods List". His chapter on Mouth Fitness is inspiring. The DVD is first rate.
