Wonderful! Nov 7, 2008
I love this book!
I realized that in order to glorify God, we have to be sound in body, mind and spirit. I thank the Lord for giving J Ron Eaker wisdom and wit to write this book.
I highly recommend this book for all who are beginning to embark into living a healthy life - along with their family. I believe that our family is the basic unit of the society, and until we see positive changes within, that's the only time we can expect positive changes without.
Let's live healthy for the glory of God!
Addresses specific spiritual needs that are frequently ignored in the healing process. Nov 3, 2007
Practicing ob-gyn J. Ron Eaker, M.D. presents Fat Proof Your Family: God's Way to forming Healthy Habits for Life, a guide especially for Christians to maintaining not only one's own health, but also teaching positive eating habits to the whole family. Fat Proof Your Family is not a "quick-fix" book, but rather emphasizes the importance of making lifelong changes for the better. From the basics of nutrition, to the importance of setting an example for one's children through one's actions ("Do as I say... and as I do!") to the value of exercise and what the Bible has to say about healthy eating, Fat Proof Your Family features both sound medical and spiritual backing. "No fad diet, miracle drug, exercise machine, or surgical procedure can be as comprehensive a solution to fat-proofing your family as God's Owner's Manual... Bible study is one cog in the wheel of the healing triad of mind, body, and spirit. It addresses specific spiritual needs that are frequently ignored in the healing process." Highly recommended.
Thank You! Aug 13, 2007
This is the book I have been looking for! It can be overwelming trying to understand all the nutrition lingo. Do I watch calories, fat, sugar, carbs??? I want to know how each of these things work in my body and how much is too much or too little. Dr. Eaker does a fantastic job of educating you on what these things are and why they are all good for us IN MODERATION. You see so many people jumping on these quick fix diet fads just to loose weight and then gain it all back. Dr. Eaker doesn't propose a diet fad. He EDUCATES you on the food you and your family eat and helps you to understand what you are feeding your family. He states many times that the best way to loose fat and to keep it off is to make good food choices and exercise. What a novel idea!! I choose to do this for myself and this book has helped me to understand why it is important that I educate my children too. I am the one who buys the food at the grocery store. If I buy the sugar cereal of course they will eat it. I am excited about incorporating what I have read and learned into our family. My kids are actually excited and want to learn this. Yeah! Anther very important point. The fact that this is a Christian based book seperates it from all the rest. The Bible is our guidebook for life and therefore we should look to it for everything - including nutrition. I never knew I could learn so much about good eating habits from scripture. It all makes sense. I could go for days on why I am excited about this but instead I will just recommend this book to everyone I know. I look forward to teaching my kids good eating habits that they will take into their adult lives. I will also lead by example. Thanks Ron for taking the time to write this for us. You are awesome!!
Fat Proof your family is a must read Jul 28, 2007
Never before have I taken the time to write a book review. This book however, is a must for all families. Fat Proof Your Family God's Way To Forming Healthy Habits For Life, is an informative book about the proper choices in diet and exercise. It is also a book that encourages us to change our lifestyle - not only for our sake but for the sake of our children. As a mother of three, it is my job and God's directive to teach my family the benefit of proper choices. This book has really encouraged me to change my way of thinking about eating. Hopefully, it is not too late to instill some good habits for the future health of my children. Dr. Eaker's book also encourages one to look to the Bible. Below, from page 108, the author writes: "Food is a gift from God. If we heed his admonitions, we will find health and happiness. Many principles from Scripture are wonderful in their simplicity. In Scripture, virtually every mention of food is celebrated, meals are meaningful, and moderation is rewarded. If you accept and adopt these simple precepts, you can take a major step forward in fat-proofing your family." Thank you Dr. Eaker your book has been a great motivator!
Accessible, friendly, informative Jul 25, 2007
Don't you hate it when doctors get too cerebral when writing about their specialties? I'm not sure if they're trying to impress their readers with a lot of big words, or if they honestly believe that they hold us spellbound with their foreign dialect that neither informs nor excites. Usually, I'm left with a feeling of inadequacy, unable to understand what must be obvious to a child.
Thank god for Dr. Eaker! He clearly has a heart for helping people regain their vitality and quality of life. Best of all, the information is accessible and easily applied to everyday behavior.
If you are looking for a book on how to lose weight, get more energy, and just plain feel better, then this is the book for you. Dr. Ron Eaker's "Fat-Proof Your Family" is a joy to read and will reshape your view of food (not to mention your figure).
