    Overall I found the information provided in this book very insig

    Overall I found the information provided in this book very insightful and relevant to the healthy lifestyle I live through the Word of God. One thing I can't fully agree with is how Dr. Colbert promotes the incorrect teaching that in the New Testament it is OK to eat whatever you want. He goes so far as to point out that modern science proves that eating what God said not to is actually detrimental to our health, but then very sternly pushes that we don't have to follow that. This is like saying that the Old Testament suggests that murder or bestiality is wrong but it's OK, in the New Testament we don't have to follow that because we're under "grace". You have to be very careful with the modern American Church definition of grace that allows people to live however they want without consequence as well as the modern Church teaching that it's OK to eat what God previously called unclean. Both of these with a solid historical study into the true context of Scripture prove to be false teachings that are leading many astray. I'll never go so far as to say that eating pork, unclean seafood items, or other unclean meats will land you in hell. Look at Hebrews 10:26-27, if we openly rebel against God's Word after He has revealed it to us, we fall into a category of sinning that no sacrifice can cover. The biggest question I would have to ask is if God said not to eat it, and science proves it is bad for us, why would you want to eat it? The next question would be is if there is even a chance that God's dietary restrictions are supposed to be followed today, why would you take the chance? One of the early Church fathers, Iraneaus, is recorded as teaching the need to follow God's dietary laws in the late second century. Many, including Dr. Colbert, use Peter's vision of the sheet with clean and unclean animals and God's command in that vision to "Rise, kill and eat" as justification for the teaching that God's dietary laws were abolished, but the true context of the vision is later reveals to not call any man unclean. The whole point of the vision was to teach Peter to get rid of the racist attitude he had toward the Gentiles which developed amongst Jews of that time, because God wanted to open salvation to everyone. The teaching that Christians can eat whatever they want is attributed to an early Pope in the Catholic Church. The Vatican backs this up, however the publication that makes the attribution of this to the Pope is also said to have a habit of attributing certain key events to certain Popes, and in actuality may have rally occurred several hundred years later. In any case, there is clear validation that the early Church continued to follow God's laws on diet long after the establishment of the New Testament Church.It's just food... there are PLENTY of options that you can enjoy and not take the chance of being in rebellion against God. I can't even fathom how a pork chop, ham sandwich, lobster tail, catfish filet, or anything else can be so good that it is worth risking your eternal destiny over. If I'm wrong, OK, I just missed out on some tasty but unhealthy meals. If I'm right (and I have plenty of facts to back up my view), however, what's going to happen to all of the modern Christians who are in fact eating these unclean foods? In the end it makes no sense at all to tell people something is bad but it's OK to do it anyway, and that is what Dr. Colbert does in his book.

    Best Overall Health Book

    I am 17 years old and just beginning to really track and watch my health. I've always been pretty healthy, but this book opened my eyes to many things I should be doing differently that I never really thought made a difference. The reason I gave it four stars instead of five is because there is some information that can be quite obvious. Like the fact that you should be getting 7-9 hours of sleep. Thanks... I think we all know that, though. Because of this there are some parts I have to skip in order to stay interested. This isn't a diet or weight loss book. It is simply a book to help you maintain a healthy lifestyle. If that is what you are looking for, than I would definitely recommend this book. =]

    Phenomenal amount of information

    If I were to purchase just one health book on the market, this would be it. I originally borrowed it from the library but had to purchase it for myself, since there is so much helpful and possibly even life-saving information in it that I wanted it to refer to over and over again.

    A reviewer

    I am a fan of Dr Colbert I own a few of his books. I begin reading this book about 10 days ago and really enjoy how it is outline daily. The first subject water was very interesting, how we think we are drinking the healthiest water and read this new book and see we have a lot to learn about our drinking water. I begin reading about the resting and sleeping and stop so I can make some changes in my bedroom this weekend first by removing my laptop into the family room. I am always seeking ways to improve my health I am 57 years young and in very good health to God be the glory. Being consistent is my goal setter for year 2008 in exercising, drinking water, taking my vitamins,eating fresh fruit etc... The appreciation list on page 52 is a great tool to live by daily. I recommend this book to all who are interested in taking charge of there health and want to live a healthy life style.
