While people fail to try common sense approach to improving their health, dieters try 4 to 5 new diets per year…which fail them miserably.
With pressure on the female gender from all sources of our society to look perfect, it is not surprising that 85% of dieters are women. Decades of false advertising and promises for a quick fix have not helped the ever expanding waistlines of Americans, yet, majority still look for a magic pill to solve their weight problems.
In 2011 the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) reported that there are approximately 5.1 million falsehood cases related to weight loss products. The desire to look slim and beautiful often overshadows what is most important–optimal health. Having said that, wanting to lose weight, if you truly have extra pounds, is not a bad thing. So, the best way to lose weight is to lose clean up what you eat, transition to an easy to follow, delicious plant based diet (no one wants to eat foods that taste like cardboard!) and get ready for a lifetime of a trimmer waistline, unclogged arteries and a disease free life. That is exactly what happened to me when I changed my diet to plant-based over 7 years ago–I ate myself into losing over 40 lbs.
I can tell you that I am not an exception; rather I am a rule of what happens to people who do the same thing I did (and keep doing). Body by Plants is a program I developed to teach health seekers the techniques I used to get healthy and slim. Here is what a few of Body by Plants graduates have said about the program and recipe they enjoyed.
I was vegan when I did Body By Plants and was very familiar with a whole food low fat plant based diet.
This has been an amazing program mainly because of the support of our amazing community that Elena has created. I can grab new recipes on Vegalicious and tips for helping me in making the healthiest choices for my family and have the comfort of knowing the research behind each article is done in detail and held to the highest standard. For 30 days you will consume a delicious plant based (vegan) diet–you will eat delicious recipes and get spoiled by the goodness of all that plants have to offer! You can enroll in the one-time 30-day program, or sing up for the whole year of fun, learning and eating foods fit for (healthy) kings. Month-Long Membership: includes everything I just described and these materials–Body by Plants manual with 160+ recipes, menu planners and educational material, Boot Camp Workout manual, Boot Camp Handbook and Vegan 101 webinar, and occasional, boot camper only, recipes and news. If you are like me and want to do healthy and lean naturally, without counting calories, and want to enjoy the foods you eat–this is the perfect plan for you! Anything from green coffee extracts to cellulite creams and diet pills, which do not come without a price. We look for perfection, but fail to make the connection–weight loss goes hand in hand with health, which is directly related to the foods we put into our mouths. AND, her weight loss happened even before she began to incorporate exercise into her daily regimen.
I never counted a calorie–you all know how I like my food to be delicious and looking great, and that I love eating bread :)! It has helped me to be accountable for everything that I eat; for all of the support of like-minded people in the group and for your wonderful advice.
However, I struggled with sugar cravings and needed something to help keep me accountable for my choices. It’s so nice to be a part of a like-minded community where you can vent, share, disclose challenges and celebrate successes with a supportive non-judging group of people. Meanwhile, sign up and spread the word to the people you love and care about–challenge them to start this journey with you.
20121 Kings 8:28 -- But please listen to my prayer and my request, because I am your servant. Thin people still suffer from cardiovascular issues, cancers, infertility and other ailments. I love that I have a place where I can get support for living a plant based lifestyle without having to defend what I am doing or where I get my protein from. People will eventually get tired of counting points, going to meetings, entering their food intake into a database, or paying three times the amount for mail-in junk they can get at a local WalMart. While smaller waistlines are beneficial and will lessen the number of health issues related to overweight and obesity, we should strive to be healthy before being slim. The recipes are simple and delicious and it has made a HUGE difference for me, making eating healthy simple and delicious!
I continue to learn something new every day from the group and continue to evolve living as naturally as possible. It must be easy and common sense, otherwise whatever we are trying will become another failed attempt at weight loss. I know that your love will last for all time, that your faithfulness is as permanent as the sky. 15: But you, O Lord, are a merciful and loving God, always patient, always kind and faithful. 8: But God has shown us how much he loves us a€“ it was while we were still sinners that Christ died for us!Hebrews 13, vs. I would come home from work and plop myself in the chair for A? hour or so, wash up, change my clothes and eat dinner. I can count on my one hand the number of times I played ball with my boy or took my daughter shopping. I feel sorry for my children for not being there for them and sorry for my wife because she raised the kids pretty much on her own and she did a great job of it. I am sorry for myself also because the moments that I missed with my children can never be recovered. I thought I was doing my best by beingA a goodA provider but in my older wisdom I know that being a Dad was the most important thing they needed.
He created us, molded us, watches over our lives, provides for us, and when we die He brings us into His kingdom.


It was customary at that time for Rabbis (Jesus was onea€”it meant teacher) when they were among a crowd to say the first verse of a Psalm.
What He most likely was doing was wanting the rest of the people, and us, to say the rest of the Psalm. Kendall===============================================================================Pastor Pop-Pop June 12, 2010. Lost loves, friends, jobs, disagreements with others, death of relatives, and depression are just some of the reasons we lose pride and hope in one self. We could go on with this forever so today I am just addressing those qualities in single people. With single people, it could just be the problem with finding the right a€?someonea€? to love. The delay or loss of a past love (among other things) could send someone spiraling downward into a loss of respect for themselves. Nationally, there are 85.6 unmarried men for every 100 unmarried women and the birthrate is approximately 53% women over men.
They have the a€?TV-ADa€? looks, drugs, drinking, sex, and instant communication (cell and text). Some people give up on themselves and become self destructive with over eating and drinking or hibernation. From a mana€™s perspective, if a man is looking for a quick date, sex, or just a temporary girlfriend he will frequent a bar. If a man is looking for a long term loving relationship or wife, he will look around church, a library (or book store), coffee bars, or social groups.
Dona€™t settle on things that go against you conscience whether it is with yourself or a mate. People with multiple divorces fail in relationships, drinkers are good drinkers, abusers (physical or mentally) are just abusers and players, and cheaters are cheaters. People rarely change and never enter a relationship with the thought that you can later on change that person to your expectations.
If a person you care for ever poses this statement ----- A a€? If you want me (or love me) you need to do a€?this or thata€™.a€? ----- then walk away and dona€™t look back.
The following religions or faiths consider Jesus as an enlightened spiritual teacher: Jehovaha€™s Witnesses, Mormonism, Unification Church , Christian Science, A? of all Wicca, New Age, Nation of Islam, Bahaa€™i World Faith, Hare Krishna, Hinduism, some of Judaism, and Islam.
It is funny that all these listed above recognize him as a great spiritual teacher but do not follow His teachings. The other half of Wicca, Transcendental Meditation, Scientology, and Buddhists either do not mention Him or He is not important to their way of thinking. Genesis Chapter #1 in part of verse 2 says, a€?and the Spirit of God was moving over the watera€?.
He won trophies for the best in class in New York State for horseshoes and archery (before compound bows) for several years running. He hunted and fished and always, it seemed, brought back his limit no matter what game, fish, or bird was in season. He joined the Navy Sea Bees in WW2 and ended up getting drafted in the Marine Corps on an Island in the Pacific during the conflict.
The only way there is through His Son Jesus so I accept Him as my Lord and Savior and try my best to follow His ways. A ====================================================== ==============================================Note: If you have not seen the movie "Left Behind" with Kirk Cameron, now would be the time. Well to begin with; this promise from God is only for believers and followers of Jesus Christ. Paul was talking about believers and inserted the condition of a€?for those who love Goda€?. You see, when you accept Christ as your Lord and Savior and ask for forgiveness and confess to Him your sins --------- you are washed clean with the blood of Christ. However, sometimes you carry the baggage of the memories of those sins in your mind and heart. This verse in Romans assures you that your guilt is unjustified because God will make it turn out in the end for good. Jesus did not promise that this life would be easy but that He would walk through those troubled times with you.
Although it was a good one, it caused me much stress and sometimes aspects of it violated my conscience. I do believe that God is making this bad thing turn out to be good and I think He has a better job for me in the near future.
If you believe in God and love Him and believe in His promise, these too will turn out for the better. And leta€™s not forget that even though what his brothers did was a€?wronga€?, God made it into good when Joseph forgave them and helped them. His promise does not make wrong right but makes it turn out into something good for his glory, for us believers.
We know that Jesus will walk with us through the valley but God will get us to the mountain top when we get through it.
I am sure there are many stories out there of how this verse helped many people weather their storms. Kendall============================================================Pastor Pop-Pop July 31, 2010.
Do not make for yourselves images of anything in heaven or on earth or in the water under the earth. Do not bow down to any idol or worship it, because I am the Lord your God and I tolerate no rivals. I bring punishment on those who hate me and on their descendants down to the third and fourth generation. It tells us His personality, words, likes, dislikes, rules, commands, pleasures, and all the things he has done.


So any god or image of him that does not conform to or match the one described in the Bible (the word of God) is not the God of Israel that we are to worship.
Let us be clear that making images of anything is not a violation of the commandment but actually worshiping it as a god.
Some churches within the body of Christ have pictures or statues of saints or even Jesusa€™ mother. That is not a violation unless the statue (or the person) a€?itselfa€? is being worshiped as a god or the statue is believed to have some sort of power within itself.
Wearing a Jewish star or a cross is also not a violation unless the emblem itself is worshiped.
If they are decorations that is OK but if you actually place or believe some hope or faith of luck in them, it is a violation of the commandment. People now seem to create their own god to worship in a€?their own minda€? and not within the scope of the Word of God (the Bible). The one I hear the most is, a€?I am a good person so that is all that is needed to go to Heaven and be saved.a€? That is not what the Bible tells us. Matthew 7:21 (ESV) says, a€?Not everyone who says to me a€?Lord Lord,a€™ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father in heaven.a€? What is the will of the Father?
People go around saying god is this or god is that or that is a€?not what I believe ina€™ but if their beliefs are not in line with the Bible, they are in violation of the first commandment.
God is OK with working on a Sunday (or having your place of business open), God is OK with Homosexual and Gay behavior, I dona€™t have to go to church and worship Him, I dona€™t have to give, I dona€™t have to forgive everyone, it is OK to kill unborn babies, He is OK with pagan rituals, I can be rude to people, God did not make the earth a€“ and on and on and on. The pastor said that this church was saying the Holy Spirit told them this was OK but another church said that the Holy Spirit was against this and yet another one had a different view point from the Holy Spirit.
We all violate them in some way or another but that is why Jesus died on the cross to wash us clean in His blood and absolve us of our faults. He scribed it on stone tablets and gave them to Moses on the mountain top to give to His people.
That is the translation that she likes to use.===============================================================Thou shall have no other gods before me.
You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous Goda€¦a€¦a€¦a€¦a€¦a€¦a€¦a€¦. Leta€™s take one at a time and discuss:We discussed this command last sermon (review if you want to). Have you ever created another God in your mind or worshiped another god of a different religion or faith? Jesus said that if you even lust in your heart (or mind) for another that you violate this commandment. Covet is defined in the NIV dictionary as: To want for yourself something that belongs to another person. Whether you take it or not, take it and not return it, or just desire it ---- you have violated this commandment. If you believe in Jesus and accept Him as your Lord and Savior, you are forgiven of your sins and you are washed in His blood clean and white as snow. A Timothy McVey the mastermind on the Oklahoma bombing defied God and declared that he alone was the a€?master of his destinya€?. A ==============================================================================Pastor Pop-Pop August 24, 2010.
Having a good relationship with your spouse, family, friends, or co-workers is usually based on a good two way conversational attitude.
To render Him praise and glory through prayer, actions, good deeds, following His laws and commandments, and accepting Jesus as our Lord and Savior. He knows what we need before we ask but He likes to hear it from us also with some praise and worship attached. Your Mom knows you need food and gives you healthy meals but approaching her and asking for a snack also tells her you would like some cheese doodles too.
Prayers can be from a book, made up by you, from the Bible, or just general conversation between you and God.
They can be on your knees by your bed, in Church, or just during every day activities or work. I try to concentrate not on an earthly or worldly fixture or thing but temporarily close my eyes (not while driving) or look up when I talk to Him. I find one (or a paragraph or verse) that I derive comfort from and say it as a special prayer to the Lord. What can flesh do to me?Psalm 121(NLT): I look up to the mountains-does my help come from there? Go to a good book store and page through some and see which ones are comfortable for you personally. They are good Bibles but one is paraphrased and one is in a so called modern language that, for me, does not read real well. I highly recommend The New Living Translation (NLT), The New Century Version (NCV), or the New American Bible (NAB). The first two are used a lot with Contemporary Christian Churches and the third contains extra books as it was designed to meet the needs of Catholic Christians. I also like the Good News Translation (GNT).A It is important that you like it and are comfortable with it.
