In What Would Jesus Eat? The Ultimate Program for Eating Well, Feeling Great, and Living Longer, Don Colbert, M.D. makes a compelling case for Christians to use the blueprint of this appetizing spin on traditional faith-based diet books to develop a healthier lifestyle using foods available today. "If you truly want to follow Jesus in every area of your life, you cannot ignore your eating habits," postulates Colbert. He examines America's alarming addiction to fast food, explores Old Testament Jewish dietary laws, and takes a comprehensive look at foods mentioned in the Bible, from herbs to bread to meat. To this information Colbert adds a healthy serving of Scripture references, mixes in a few anecdotes, and finishes the book with an easy-to-follow weekly eating guide. Colbert also tackles the subject of drinking red wine as part of a healthy lifestyle, something often ignored in Christian-based health books. Readers looking for spiritual reasons to make dietary changes will discover excellent justification here to take the plunge. --Cindy Crosby --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From Publishers Weekly
After the goose has been gobbled and the cookies consumed, Americans' thoughts turn toward their ever-expanding waistlines. 'Tis the season for diet books, especially in the Christian market. Thomas Nelson, capitalizing on the What Would Jesus Do? phenomenon, presents What Would Jesus Eat?: The Ultimate Program for Eating Well, Feeling Great, and Living Longer. Author Don Colbert, a family physician, urges readers to examine and emulate Jesus' simple diet. The nutritional information, overall, is quite sound: Colbert encourages the consumption of fish, the use of olive oil in cooking and an exercise regimen of daily walking. He discusses the "hidden dangers" of pork, condemns refined white flour and warns against the excessive consumption of red meat. This "all-natural diet from biblical times" promises readers fitness and longevity. Although it should be recalled that longevity was not exactly a hallmark of many biblical characters after the early chapters of Genesis, this is a solid addition to the Christian diet shelves.
