There is no magic potion involved to instantly make you slim and fit, only a little bit of learning and practice.A The Body Mass Index (BMI) is the accepted measure for assessing weight most accurately.
As body fat increases and lean body mass decreases, the risk for cardiovascular disease increases. This ratio is calculated by dividing the waist measurement in inches by the hip measurement in inches. Your goal should be to take your body and make it as healthy, strong, flexible and well-proportioned as you can. Thin or plump, young or old, you will be more beautiful, have a prouder carriage, healthier glow and a supple flow of movement which says that you are comfortable and confident about your physical self.i»?The fastest, healthiest, and most effective, interesting and rewarding way to lose weight is by combining 300 minutes of cardio exercise a week with a healthful diet. I had this wonderful sermon today on resurrection but I am changing it due to something in this morninga€™s paper. The best results come when you simultaneously cut down on caloric intake and increase the calories you burn up through exercise.A A Some of what you'll learn is basic common sense, but hopefully you'll gain some insight into how you can change your bad eating habits into good eating habits so you can lose weight and keep it off. Our daughter who is also in the Army was in special training for 3 A? months and Oma and I took care of Alan at our home. In this guide I'm going to give you straight talk about what it takes to rapidly lose weight and get fit in a healthy way.
At the local daycare, Alan met his friend Noah and they played together for the duration of this time. I'm going to show you exactly what you need to do, step-by-step, so you can reach your weight loss goal and keep that weight off for the long term. Donations can be sent to any PNC bank location in Pennsylvania directed to the Noah Staley Trust Fund.
This cancer is so rare that only about 100 people in the US have ever been diagnosed with this.
If you are going to lose weight and stay fit, you have to think i»?long term lifestyle changesi»?.
You can't eat a banana or a bowl of cabbage soup for three days and think you've succeeded in your weight loss goal. You've only developed a nasty habit of yo-yo dieting.A I know that's probably not what you wanted to hear. Most people want instant gratification when they make that all important decision to get fit and lose weight.
I am asking all of my readers, please pray to our Lord for his healing, that his parents get the much needed monies, and that everyonea€™s faith shall increase as they see the Glory of God do a miracle.
Granted, obesity does run in some families, but that doesn't mean you have to sit back and accept your overweight as a kind of family curse. More than likely it's simply the result of careless or naive eating habits and far too little physical activity - lazy habits passed on from generation to generation. Help me boldly claim my full capacity for your use.a€? ------------- Donna Givlera€”quoting Katie Brazelton of Saddleback Church in her devotional book titled a€?Praying for Purpose, for Womena€?. Diet properly and you'll not only look better, but you'll eat better than you probably have in years.
In that case, he's either being overly kind, or he's overweight himself, or he's simply telling a big fat lie!
Everyone who lives in me and believes in me will never die.a€?1 Corinthians Chapter 15, vs. 42: Our earthly bodies are planted in the ground when we die, but they will be raised to live forever. Let it show you how to add not as much as a single pound though you add five, ten, twenty, even thirty candles to your birthday cake. 27: For you will not leave my soul among the dead or allow your Holy one to rot in the grave. It doesn't motivate many people to even try to lose weight because a vast majority of those who diet and lose even a little weight will eventually put all that weight (and many times more) back on as soon as they stop dieting.A Therin lies the problem. 2: The leaders were very disturbed that Peter and John were teaching the people that through Jesus there was a resurrection of the dead. Diets are doomed to fail right from the start because most people view diets as a short term solution, something they can follow for a set period of time to get the desired results and then just stop. 11: I want to suffer with him, sharing in his death, so that one way or the other I will experience the resurrection from the dead.
But unless it's a diet plan they can follow for life, they're doomed to fail.A It doesn't really matter if you believe it or not. It proved that he was God and that He had power even over His own death and Satana€™s dominion.
You wouldn't be reading this article if you did.A If you want to lose weight and keep that weight off, you need to stop thinking of a diet as a temporary fix. Unfortunately, most people follow an "unhealthy" diet which leads to weight gain, high blood sugar, and for some, obesity, high blood pressure and heart disease.A Weight gain is the product of not paying attention to what you put in your body, how often you do it and when. God can resurrect our lives, our dreams, and our visions if we ask him to or if it is His will for us.
They also produce long term health problems, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, constipation, fatty liver, heart disease and more.A You may be feeling great because you've lost a few pounds. If we have a dream or vision and we lose sight of it we can gain our sight back if we ask Him in prayer. But I guarantee you this - If you stop following that diet, and go back to your old eating habits, very soon you'll find yourself on the wrong side of that diet failure statistic.A When you crash diet, you put your metabolismon a roller coaster ride. Instead of speeding up and giving your body more energy, the lower calorie intake that normally goes with a crash diet puts your body in "famine" mode. She continued her life style and left her son with babysitters while she partied and enjoyed life (she thought). One day, depressed of how her life was going, she drove past our church and stopped in on a whim.
Your body doesn't want to let go of what it knows it needs to survive.A You need to think i»?long term, healthy eating i»?that will help promote a healthy metabolism, not send it into shock. Some people are unable to digest dairy products because their body doesn't produce an enzyme called lactase. We sponsored her that Christmas and had much joy running around buying her son Jared presents. However, because the culture in yogurt produces its own lactase it can be enjoyed by most people.
Over the next two years we connected a couple more times and gave her encouragement when we seen her.
Last year we gave her a gift card for a restaurant so that she and Jared could have a nice meal out together.
Eating yogurt can combat the bacterium that causes stomach ulcers.Eggs- Skip that stack of pancakes and get a fat-burning boost with a plate of eggs.
Eating the right meal within an hour or two after exercise can make the biggest difference you've noticed yet. That's the time when your body needs -and most effectively uses- food to turn your effort into stronger muscles and increased energy levels. She now has a good full time job with benefits, her son is doing fantastic in school, and she is looking exceptionally healthy and emotionally stable now. Starting a meal with half a grapefruit is an old diet trick that does seem to work, according to scientists.
In 2006, they found that this simple change helped a group of very overweight volunteers to lose weight. For she took the courage in her slow death of life and laid all her hope at the foot of the cross. Grapefruit is full of flavonoids that repair cell damage, combat cancer, and protect the heart.Avocados- They have a hunger-halting hormone called leptin. My wife and I thank God that he let us participate, even if it was very little, in her re-birth.
Scientists have found people are more relaxed after a higher-fat meal, and even feel less pain.
Some fat is also necessary for the body to absorb nutrients that can improve your mood, such a vitamin E. Avocados are the healthier alternative: instead of saturated fat, they provide healthy monounsaturated fat. They are rich in tryptophan, along with vitamin B6 and folate, which helps the body turn tryptophan into the feel-good chemical serotonin.Mushrooms- Try swapping out meat for mushrooms in your favorite recipe. Shortly after the dream, we were visiting YWAM in Lebanon and they were showing us their prayer tent that they use in Lancaster and Cape Cod. A recent study found that mushrooms were just as filling, but of course don't have the saturated fat that's found in meat. Mushrooms are one of the richest sources of a powerful antioxidant called L-ergothioneine, which combats cell damage. This was with the hope that someone would step up to the plate and donate a space to erect it.
They are also rich in vitamin B3, which might slow the onset of age-related dementias, and potassium, which helps to regulate blood pressure. Research is being done into their cancer-fighting properties, including reducing the risk of breast cancer. Mushrooms might also help to slow down age-related muscle loss, as they provide protein in a form that the body can easily use.
Shiitake mushrooms, in particular, are rich in iron.Olive Oil- With all of its heart-healthy qualities, olive oil contains a hunger-busting acid too.
These three nutrients are associated with a lower risk of colon cancer, which becomes increasingly common in later age. Together, these nutrients protect cells from the damage that can lead to cancer, as well as causing heart disease, hardening of the arteries, and skin deterioration.
The vitamin E content can reduce the severity of hot flashes.Whole Grains- To whittle your middle, go for the whole grains.
Folks who eat more whole grains have less belly fat.Red Pepper- Do you love crushed red peppers? The heat-inducing compound (capsaicin) that's found in pepper actually cuts your appetite.Fava Beans- Bring on the fava beans if you want to cut that belly fat. However, recently the pastors of the Gathering Place (a project to help people with Aids) asked us to help bring CAP some clothes this winter.
So it stands to reason that the first step in weight loss would be cutting back on your food intake. You don't want to starve your body.A When you don't eat enough food, your body will begin to take whatever it needs in the way of nutrients from other parts of your body in order to survive.
That means taking nutrients from your bones, teeth, and vital organs, leaving your body depleted. Your metabolism will shut down in order to reserve energy and your body will only use enough energy to stay alive. Just open your mouth and ask.a€?A a€?Even though your promise may be postdated, remember whose signature is on the checka€? Pastor Pop-Pop 11-8--09. So while you may think that by starving yourself you'll drop weight quicker, what you're actually doing is sabotaging your metabolism.A The operative word when thinking of food is "healthy".
It's not enough to simply eat enough food to keep your metabolism running at optimal performance. What started out as something to just help pastor my children, has turned into something that may be helping lots of people. You need foods that will give your body energy while allowing it to function with a minimal amount of effort.A It is true that there are no bad "foods" if you eat them in moderation and balance them with healthy foods. No one wants to feel deprived of having their favorite dessert or a fast food burger every so often. According to Yahoo my host, I have an average of 50 hits a week on the Pastor Pop Pop site.
However, if you have that fast food burger every day of the week or eat that piece of triple chocolate cake before you go to bed every evening without giving a thought to how your body will react to it, you've established a bad eating habit.A A The trick is to balance the amount of food you eat with whole grains, fresh vegetables and fruits, along with lean meats. That means that whatever it is you're eating is sitting in you while you relax rather than being burned off as you go about your day.A A Furthermore, when you skip a meal, you're famished by the time you finally do get to eat later in the afternoon or early evening.
By then end of the day, you've already burned most of the calories you are going to burn during the day. Your body ends up storing those excess calories in your body fat and keeps them in reserve for the next time you skip a meal.A A This can become a vicious circle of you trying to desperately cut back calories by skipping meals and your body is desperately trying to hold on to whatever nourishment it can get. Instead of eating 3 big meals a day, eat 5 or 6 smaller meals.A A Start your day with proteins and any carbohydrates you might want to have during the course of the day. This weekend at a prayer tent at a local flea market, I seen a leg grow that was shorter than the other one. That fat contributes not only to weight gain, but other health issues that are detrimental.A A But not all fats are created equal. Every week from now on there will be two tabs to the right of the Home Page that will be new. Monounsaturated fats can be found in foods like almonds, walnuts, peanuts, avocadoes, and olive oil.
We will address both today and you may click on the Tab in future weeks to experience the Altar Call again. Not only are they good for weight loss, as an added health benefit they help to lower your bad LDL cholesterol.A A Polyunsaturated fats also help lower LDL cholesterol levels as well as aid in weight loss. Foods rich in polyunsaturated fat are salmon, cod, corn and sunflower oils, flaxseed and other fish oils. A Christian artist once said that when she was in another country and away from her Church, she would sit and pray alone and have communion by herself to remind her of her faith. Foods that contain polyunsaturated fat also contain omega 3 fatty acids, which help aid the body in weight loss.A A You want to avoid saturated fats such as foods fried in vegetable oil or prepackaged foods that add fat for flavoring. That inspired my wife and me to do it occasionally by ourselves and with some of our Amish friends. I say changing lifestyle habits instead of focusing on just the kind of food you eat and when you eat it because losing weight, getting fit, and staying that way is not a short term gig.
It can be about your body, mind, soul, family, friends, healing needed, finances, challenges, or anything that you wish. Stored calories are held in fat cells.A A Break this bad habit by replacing your sedentary lifestyle with exercise in the late afternoon or early evening. Turn away from your former self, study in the Word (the Bible) and find yourself a good Christian Church that will support you and help you grow in your faith.
A Another reason why exercising later in the day is good is because not everyone has the time during the morning before work or the day gets underway to do justice to a solid workout. The Son being Jesus Christ who died on the cross at Calvary and shed his blood for our sins. If you are a busy mom of two and need to get your kids off to school or to daycare before you head off to work, when is there time to get to the gym to workout? More times than not the workout gets bumped from the daily schedule and all the efforts at eating right and trying to lose weight are reduced significantly. A Get around this by scheduling your exercise at a time you know you won't have any conflicts that will interrupt you.
I believe that since I now accept Him as my Lord and Savior that I have been washed clean of my sins and guilt by his blood.
Jesus, I love you.a€? A If you prayed this simple prayer, you are saved and re-born in Him.
Most people make the mistake of only writing down the foods they eat during a planned meal. But they forget about the cream they put in their coffee, a spoonful of ice cream they snuck when serving dessert, a few crackers they popped in their mouth because they suddenly had a sugar craving.A A Some people will find themselves disciplined enough to resist mindless eating.
But if you're just starting out in your diet, or not sure how your willpower will hold out, the best thing you can do to kick this habit is to keep a small notebook tucked away in your pocket or in your purse. Every time you get the urge to bring food to your mouth, pull out that notebook and write down what you are about to eat.
That one small move will snap you into the realization that you might be consuming calories that will negatively affect your diet.A A There are a whole lot of reasons why people eat mindlessly. That depression can range from life changes or even frustration over your current health and happiness. It could be anything from a sluggish thyroid to faulty genetics to just not having enough time to think about weight loss.A A I'm here to tell you to knock it off! The only way you will lose weight and keep it off is stop making excuses for why you're not succeeding. We are going to drown!a€? He replied, a€?You of little faith, why are you afraid?a€? Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm. In fact, having a sluggish thyroid or other genetic problem may be an additional barrier to how fast you can lose weight. People with "bad" genetics and even health problems do manage to lose weight when they put their mind to it. The thing that keeps them from losing weight is falling back on the reason it is so difficult for them.A A Use symbols of physical activity to represent your new lifestyle. This takes your attention away from food and refocuses it on the new behaviors that will make you feel good. Put an apple, or a copy of diet books on your desk, put your walking shoes in a conspicuous place rather than in your closet.
Buy some books on walking, yoga, or other physical activities and place them on tables in different rooms. The eyes of the Lord are upon those who love him; he is their mighty shield and strong support, a shelter from the heat, a shade from the noonday sun, a guard against stumbling, a help against falling. Each time you lay your eyes on them, you can give yourself a quick pat on the back for all the changes you are making.
A visible token of the new you in every room of the house will stimulate you to keep up the good work, keep your eating under control, and remind you to keep up the positive dialogue with yourself.A A Deposit a certain sum of money to a savings account for the successful completion of your behavior change strategy each day.
If you deposit a dollar for every mile walked you will soon have enough to buy the new clothes you are going to need.
You deserve a good new wardrobe.A A Learn everything you possibly can about your "excuse" for not losing weight. For instance, if you have a sluggish thyroid, talk to your health care provider about being put on medication to regulate it, if needed. Although I own and study from many various different Bible translations, I personally normally use the NAB version. Learn what foods interfere with thyroid hormone production.A Allowing yourself to use excuses for why you are unable to lose weight will only be self-defeating.
Occasionally I like to read some of the a€?missing books of the Biblea€? sometimes called the Apocrypha.
They include the books of the books of Baruch, Judith, both Maccabees, Sirach, Tobit and the book of Wisdom. Empower yourself to change those excuses around and become proactive in your desire to lose weight.A A You may not lose weight as fast as someone else who does not have the same issues you have. If youa€™re Amish (I do have some Amish readers), you may find these books in an earlier version of the King James printing. And I can guarantee that you won't lose any weight if you continue to use your excuses as a crutch.A If it were really that easy to lose weight then everyone would do it.
Any way, I was reading the book of Sirach and through some of the verses it was put on my heart that I treated this person somewhat wrongly and it could have been done through ambition or pride of mine. We wouldn't be a society of overweight people.Weight loss takes dedication and a conscious effort to eat healthy foods and exercise regularly.
I immediately broke down and confessed this sin to Jesus and asked for Goda€™s forgiveness.
It may not be intentional but most people underestimatethe amount of calories and fat they eat in any given day. If you're supposed to exercise for 30 minutes and you only exercise for 20, you're not giving yourself the truth. Anyone would argue that 20 minutes of exercise is still better than zero minutes of exercise. But you will go further over the long haul and make more progress towards reaching your goal if you are honest about exactly what it is you are doing.
If you're eating something healthy like fresh garden greens and lean meats it may not make a difference.
But there will come a time when you've reached your weight loss goal where you'll start introducing higher calorie foods occasionally. Not everyone in your household will be on a diet and not everyone will want to eat the same foods you need to eat to lose weight.
It's also tiring to have to make two different meals to satisfy different people.A A Remember that no one is going to keep you on track but you. However, I will declare that the Lord has closed a door but he will surely open a new and better one. When there are differing menu choices for the family, make sure you incorporate your diet menu into the overall meal plan. I choose to believe this truth and not the news media and evil spirits who would much rather us to believe that this bad economy, unemployment, and world affairs will defeat us. For instance, if everyone else is having tacos for dinner, instead of using high calorie, high carbohydrate tortillas, make a taco salad for yourself.
For every hour of the day, enter in what chores everyone in the family wants to do and needs to do for an entire week.
Occasionally, you will find that you have cheated on your diet or skipped your exercise program and think you've blown it. He was led by the Spirit in the wilderness, where he was tempted by the devil for forty days. Instead of getting right back on the wagon after you've fallen, you continue cheating and then decide to start back up eating right and exercising the next day.A A While I applaud you for getting right back on that wagon and getting back into your weight loss and fitness program again, I need to caution you about the mindset of blowing it all the way.
But there are mistakes, and then there are disasters.A If you overindulge one evening or cheat on your diet, the best thing for you to do as soon as you realize your mistake is to stop right there and make yourself get right back on track.
The Scriptures say, a€?People do not live by bread alone.a€™a€? Then the devil took him up and revealed to him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. But as soon as you recognize it, then make sure you stop and get right back on the program to prevent further damaging your momentum.
It's not enough to say that you'll do an extra set of crunches or an additional 15 minutes of aerobics. 12: For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. It is good for us to know the Scriptures and write some down to pray and declare a€?in Jesusa€™ namea€™ when we are being attacked.
When you are in the battles of life, say a verse or two out loud and declare it over your life in Jesusa€™ name.
Tell Satan to, a€?Get out of my life, body, mind, and soul and leave me alone in Jesusa€™ namea€? And use the arrows against him.
In this guide I'm going to give you straight talk about what it takes to rapidly lose weight and get fit in a healthy way.
I'm going to show you exactly what you need to do, step-by-step, so you can reach your weight loss goal and keep that weight off for the long term.
Have mercy on me and hear my prayer.Go away, all you who do evil, for the Lord has heard my weeping. He rescued me from my powerful enemies, from those who hated me and were too strong for me. I will thank the Lord because he is just; I will sing praise to the name of the Lord Most High. My enemies retreated; they staggered and died when you appeared.Turn and answer me, O Lord my God! Granted, obesity does run in some families, but that doesn't mean you have to sit back and accept your overweight as a kind of family curse.
More than likely it's simply the result of careless or naive eating habits and far too little physical activity - lazy habits passed on from generation to generation. Dona€™t let my enemies gloat, saying, a€?We have defeated him!a€? Dona€™t let them rejoice at my downfall.Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Protect my life from my enemiesa€™ threats.But God himself will shoot them with his arrows, suddenly striking them down. Pray and think on this thing called freedom, which we take for granted but is being eroded away. 37-40: Then He said to him (a Pharisee), a€?Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. 21: The one who pursues righteousness and faithful love will find life righteousness, and faithful love. Some people are unable to digest dairy products because their body doesn't produce an enzyme called lactase. Many relatives were coming to our home to partake in the golden turkey and all the other foods and treats my wife prepared. Eating the right meal within an hour or two after exercise can make the biggest difference you've noticed yet. That's the time when your body needs -and most effectively uses- food to turn your effort into stronger muscles and increased energy levels. So I will not be spending Thanksgiving having dinner around a table with my family like you are going to. If people like you would not patronize this store on holidays and make sure that you have all your stuff the day before, it would be unlikely that they would stay open. It also made me think about all the other stores that are open on these days and the countless others that have to work those days and cannot have an enjoyable time like some of the rest of us. And dona€™t forget to thank them for being there if you just cannot bear not to go to the store for that a€?emergencya€? item. 37-38: On the last day, the climax of the festival, Jesus stood and shouted to the crowds, a€?Anyone who is thirsty may come to me! For the Scriptures declare, a€?Rivers of living water will flow from his hearta€™.a€?Matthew Chapter 11, vs. It's not enough to simply eat enough food to keep your metabolism running at optimal performance.
You're body is only going to use what it needs at that particular moment and nothing more.
By then end of the day, you've already burned most of the calories you are going to burn during the day. On one day before his memorial service when we were all there at his home, his daughter went out in the backyard by her self.
She was walking around in the back yard and my other brother and I decided to go out and comfort her.
She said that she looked up in the sky (it was blue and full of clouds that day) and, a€?I saw a very large white hand that seemed to reach down to mea€?. She stated that she felt it was her daddya€™s hand and because of this she felt better knowing that he was still watching over her.
Sure, popcorn has a high amount of fiber, something that is good when you're on a diet.
A Get around this by scheduling your exercise at a time you know you won't have any conflicts that will interrupt you.
We may go through many troubles and trials in our lives but God will always be with us and never forsake us. But if you're just starting out in your diet, or not sure how your willpower will hold out, the best thing you can do to kick this habit is to keep a small notebook tucked away in your pocket or in your purse. 12-13: If a man has a hundred sheep and one of them goes astray, will he not leave the ninety-nine in the hills and go and search of the stray? And if he finds it, amen, I say to you, he rejoices over it more than over the ninety-nine that did not stray. It could be anything from a sluggish thyroid to faulty genetics to just not having enough time to think about weight loss.A A I'm here to tell you to knock it off! The only way you will lose weight and keep it off is stop making excuses for why you're not succeeding.
After a few days, the younger son collected all his belongings and set off to a distant country where he squandered his inheritance on a life of dissipation. When he had freely spent everything, a severe famine struck that country, and he found himself in dire need. So he hired himself out to one of the local citizens who sent him to his farm to tend the swine. Coming to his senses he thought, a€?How many of my fathera€™s hired workers have more than enough food to eat, but here am I, dying from hunger. I shall get up and go to my father and I shall say to him, a€?Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you.
While he was a long way off, his father caught sight of him and was filled with compassion. Loads of cars and cameras were set up by the Audubon society to just catch a glimpse of it. You may have had parents or grandparents that were religious and went to church and prayed. Perhaps you have done something you consider really bad and believe God just doesna€™t love you anymore. If you're eating something healthy like fresh garden greens and lean meats it may not make a difference. Through his Son, if you confess your sins and ask for his forgiveness, you will be washed clean again.
One that will help you feel better, enriches your soul, shower you with His Word, and nurture your faith so it grows in the path of Christ.
I wish to thank all my readers for visiting my web site this year and I hope that it helped in some way.
She will give birth to a son and will call him Immanuel (which means a€?God is with usa€™).Micah Chapter 5, vs. 2: But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah, are only a small village among all the people of Judah . God sent him to buy freedom for us who were slaves to the law, so that he could adopt us as his very own children.John Chapter 20, vs.
30-31: The disciples saw Jesus do many other miraculous signs in addition to the ones recorded in this book. But these are written so that you may continue to believe that Jesus the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing in him you will have life by the power of his name.Luke Chapter 2, vs. 9-12: Suddenly, an angel of the Lord appeared among them, and the radiance of the Lorda€™s glory surrounded them. The Savior a€“ yes, the Messiah, the Lord a€“ has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David! The names have been changed and the name of their Church deleted to help keep their identities secret.
It was at this Church that we also got baptized together and rededicated our lives to Christ. I desire a man after your own heart and if that is not Mark then remove him.a€? I also said, a€?But Lord, divorce is not your desire, I believe in you. Mark has too much pride to come down to the altar, but I know if you can make a Donkey talk, you can call him out!a€? (Read Numbers Chapter 22, vs. God has something to say.a€? Now the Pastor did not know Mark and did not know what I had prayed before we came here, only God knew.
I now read the Bible to them every day, monitor their TV, take them to Church, and lay hands on them and speak blessings into their lives.
