From the Inside Flap
You've picked up this book because you have a need to lose weight. You've come to the right place. I can help you. I understand what you've been through, because I've been through it too. I understand how frustrated you've become, because I've been frustrated too.
First of all, I want you to know that not only do I understand your situation but I also care about it. I care about you. I've become so passionate about inspiring overweight people to lose weight that much of my life today is wrapped up in finding ways to help people change.
With God's help, I found a way to begin taking small steps, and those small steps led to a new lifestyle. They led to life. That's what this book is all about--a path to a new life.|Steve Reynolds, America's "Anti-Fat Pastor," has served as the senior pastor of Capital Baptist Church in suburban Washington, DC, since 1982.

From the Back Cover
Steve Reynolds had been overweight all of his life. In fact, he weighed over 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, and his weight ballooned to 340 pounds and stayed there for years. But his story wasn't over . . .
Steve lost more than 100 pounds and launched a stunningly successful weight-loss program in his church and community. In Bod4God, he reveals the four keys that have unlocked the door to health and fitness for him and for countless others. He shares these simple lifestyle changes--both inside and out--that led to his incredible weight loss, and he invites you to change your life forever.
