Many people look in the mirror and are dissatisfied with their bodies. They see a seat too big and a chest too small, an enormous nose or beady eyes. Psalm 139 tells us how God feels about our bodies. We get the "fearful" part; it's the "wonderful" we're not so sure about.
The Body God Designed presents the idea that God Himself made us and has a body intended just for you. This God-intended body may have been altered by our circumstances or by our behaviors but, with His help, we can restore our bodies to the level of health and vitality He planned for us. Jantz provides specific tips for health, including: - Healthy models for each body shape - Differences between healthy and unhealthy fats and where to find each - Principles readers can use for effective, long-term weight loss - How to refrain from secret and mindless eating

Fun and Practical Insight for Every Person Feb 24, 2008
Have you walked past a mirror lately and really looked at yourself? Or maybe you are scooting past that mirror as quickly as possible so you don't have to look at your image.
Dr. Gregg Jantz has written a fascinating book so you can take a practical look at your eating habits and understand some basic health issues for every person. I love his chapter titles like the takeoff from Psalm 46:10 that says, "Be still, and know I am God." This chapter is called "Be still and know that I am chocolate." Can't you identify? I could.
Scattered throughout the book are these BGD Road Trip highway signs where he says things like, "Once again, please put down this book and pick up a notebook. You're going on a journey to your kitchen..." Periodically you are told to stop reading and go actively do something to learn more about your own personal health choices.
I love the encouragement which is scattered throughout these pages. Let me highlight a few lines from the final page in the book here Dr. Jantz writes, "Don't be disappointed if you haven't gotten as far or gone as fast as you may have wanted. Keep going: have faith!
"Don't spend your energy coming up with excuses for why this won't work. Keep going; have faith!
"Don't dwell on your failure. Instead, thank God for your victories. Keep going; have faith!
"Don't listen to the voices that tell you all this doesn't really matter. It does. Keep going; have faith!
"Don't beat yourself up over the past, but recommit yourself to today. Keep going; have faith!" (page 227)
Everyone can use more of that sort of encouragement in their daily life. You need this book. Get it now--to absorb every page and apply it to your life.
