Have the same mindset as Christ Jesus. —Philippians 2:5 NIV Changing your health habits is like driving a speedboat on a lake with your autopilot set to go east. If you want to reverse course, you could try to physically force the wheel in the opposite direction, but you would likely get tired and let go, and the boat would drift back....
Social rules dictate we should be nice to other people. Yet how many of us are nice to ourselves? I’m willing to bet that you wouldn’t dream of talking to others the way you talk to yourself. While we often make an effort to be kind, patient and compassionate with our friends and family, many of us spend most of our waking hours criticizing and mentally berating ourselves....
For over 12 years of my life, I spent my days criticizing my body, hating what I saw in the mirror, and berating myself for my imperfections. Negative thoughts about my body ran through my mind 24/7. I thought criticism and self-loathing were the way to “motivate” myself to get the body I desperately desired....

The Sovereign Lord is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to tread on the heights. —Habakkuk 3:19...
This recipe from my new book, Food: What the Heck Should I Eat? will be a family favorite! Gelatin powder adds a sneaky protein kick to these sweet frozen treats. They’re perfect as post-workout recovery fuel, and an easy and delicious way to get important nutrients into busy kiddos. You’ll need ice pop molds for these. Click here to view PDF. ...
Most Americans don’t eat food anymore. They eat factory-made, industrially produced food-like substances – what I call Frankenfoods – that contain things like trans fats, high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS), monosodium glutamate (MSG), preservatives, pesticides, and antibiotics....
The poor will eat and be satisfied. All who seek the Lord will praise him. —Psalm 22:26 Dr. Mark Hyman says, “Food has the power to heal us. It is the most potent tool we have to prevent and treat many of our chronic diseases.”...
