Fit Bit (The Daniel Diet for Summer?)

Fit Bit (The Daniel Diet for Summer?)

It’s Summer Time!!!!!   This is the time of year most of us will get moving more and eat better. We plan for this behavior in January.  How are you doing on your Summer wellness routine?

Be encouraged to “JUST DO IT!”

Fresh fruits are really getting tasty now and the veggies too are pretty marvelous.  This fresh fest will last well into October so…. “GET ON IT!”

The Daniel Diet has become popular in some Christian circles.  It’s a commitment to eat mainly fruits, vegetables and drink water.  I never recommend “diets”.  I recommend healthy life choices that have no time constraints.  Diets do not work for the long term.  Many people get off them and regain all the weight they lost plus some.  Life style changes are “WHERE ITS AT!”

For a healthful Christ Centered lifestyle;
1.     Put Jesus first in your day.  (Mathew 6:33)  His Yoke is easy and burden is light with Him first you won’t be as tempted to “stress out” and make negative lifestyle choices.
2.     Eat 2-3 serving of fruit, 5-7 servings of Vegetables and drink about 64 ounces of water a day.  (Your personal nutritional needs are individually calculated, but this basic recommendation is a guideline from the American Diabetes Association so it’s a good place to start for most people.) 
Daniel 1:12-15
12 “Please test your servants for ten days: Give us nothing but vegetables to eat and water to drink. 13 Then compare our appearance with that of the young men who eat the royal food, and treat your servants in accordance with what you see.” 14 So he agreed to this and tested them for ten days.
15 At the end of the ten days they looked healthier and better nourished than any of the young men who ate the royal food.”
I hope this little FIT BIT helps motivate you to treat your body like a temple not a trash can this Summer.
Be fit and be blessed,
