Review

"Not all televangelists are svelte and trim, but they can be--and so can everyone else--by following Dr. Colbert’s advice. Chock full of valuable facts about why we become overweight and how to alter our lifestyles to remedy that, BIBLE CURE also injects biblical pep talks to motivate the faithful who wish to lose weight. A trifle overzealous when it comes to religious diatribes but more than adequate in explaining how those extra pounds come to be and how to rid ourselves of them, THE BIBLE CURE is actually a valuable tool for the pudgy."

In the book The Bible Cure for Weight Loss and Muscle Gain Dr. Colbert explains how we get fat, and the all natural way to lose the fat. If you are starving on low-cal diets or low-carb diets try this plan and you will feel so much better. The diet is based on insulin restriction and increasing glucagon. Insulin tells the fat cells to store fat, while glucagon releases fat. In the book we learn how popcorn and breathmints can cause us to gain weight. This is caused by elevated levels of insulin. Dr Colbert includes an easy meal plan, information of supplements, and fiber. He also explains why we should avoid aspartame and use splenda, and stevia instead. The meal portions are huge and will keep you full. The secret is eating the right amount of each food group at every meal. A+++ book.

Though I've seen Dr. Colbert on Pastor Hagee and Joyce Meyer shows. I really wasn't completly convinced he knew what he was talking about. I was completely prepared to dismiss him as "quackery" and the fringe element of "the Christian Right" until I actually bought "What Would Jesus Eat", and found out that everything he said was true. Eating more vegetables does make you feel full longer

The Bible Cure for Weight Loss and Muscle Gain, is even better. Being an endomorph with a slow metabolysm my weight plateud for two years straight. It was when I read his book and bought the vitamins that he suggested the weight started comming off again.

Taking a supplement of vitamins and minerals he suggested has gon a long way to nurrishing my body, and ceasing the intense cravings I was experiencing for carbohydrates.

Colbert also points out how the body works and why sugars and starchs actually prevent weight loss. The example he gives of a woman who ate healthy but still couldn't loose weight because she was sucking on breath mints all day was mind blowing. Once she stopped the weight began to come off. It's amazing how something seeming so small can interfere with your wieght loss goals.

You don't have to be a Christian or particularly relgious to get what Dr. Colbert suggests. His medical advice is spot on. There are a ton of diet books out there. But I find that this one is the most simple and effective. You owe yourself or someone you know who is struggling with the battle of "The bulge" to get this book. It will help you or even save your life.

I have found the advice in this book to be sound. It is similar to the zone and Get-fit america but from biblical holistic point of view. It is chock full of vitamin and mineral supplement information. In addition, it details why certain foods which are taboo on most diets should be restricted. I have been following his suggested eating plan for about 5 days and am noticibly trimmer.

I must say Dr. Don Colbert has developed the easiest method of weight loss I have ever read. Forget low carb high fat frauds, and low fat lie diets. The plan is based on nature like God intended us to eat. The program is very well explained and meals are 40-30-30. Dr. Colbert also explains the need for exercise and vitamins. He also supports eating healthy fats like olive oil. For a easy to understand weight loss program try this one, and you wont be let down.

I have read this book three times in the last week. I have double checked the scripture references and feel confident that Dr. C knows his stuff. I have been a vegetarian for 8 years now and agree fully that Americans as a whole are pathetic in our eating habits. No wonder the rest of the world mocks us! Please do your self a favor and pray, use your faith and read this book from cover to cover. Then clean out your cupboards and begin your life with a new, healthy feeling and attitude. Respect your body and soon you will gain respect from others.

I've read other books by Don Colbert,MD so I knew I would enjoy this one, but I got much more out of it than I expected. For a small book it is loaded with easy to understand and excellent information that I was able to put to work in my life right away. It gave me hope that now finally I can really lose weight. Thank you DR.Colbert

This book had a lot of good practical tips in it. It ties back to the glycemic index and how food in the past just didn't impact our blood sugar the way that food today does. (Before food was natural, and now, everything is highly processed.) It made me really think about things, and after a month following it (and not having time for exercise), I lost about five pounds. I could tell it was fat because most of my cellulite went away (interesting, huh?) I have about 25 more pounds to lose, but I plan to keep using the ideas in this book.
