An excerpt from the book A Single Day of Peace
What do you eat every day? Do you exercise during the week? Are you a picture of health or not so much? Be honest with yourself. If you had to pick one, healthy or un-healthy, which would it be?
Other than having a personal relationship with God, taking care of yourself is the most important thing you can do. Obesity rates in the United States continue to rise high-er and higher each year. We eat too many packaged and processed foods, and we eat way too much quantity of foods on a daily basis, such as refined sugars, starchy carbs, etc.
While it is more expensive to eat healthily, you don’t have to break the bank to do this. Just change some habits. Eat more raw and cooked vegetables, eat more fish, be moderate with beef, etc. There are so many great books available on healthy eating for you to read and implement.
Often, people can’t admit their diet is less than average. To that, I suggest they write down every morsel of food they eat for one day. Every tea, every spoon of sugar they put in their coffee, every piece of candy, every potato chip, every vegetable … everything. At around 9 p.m., look at the list you created and grade yourself. If you let your body become overweight, you are most likely planning a shorter life.
