Thinking of “Dieting?” Let’s Be Practical, Read This!

It’s nearly the start of the “Diet-Season” when millions enthusiastically begin a diet on January 2nd and . . . usually fall off that bandwagon three weeks later. Why?

Failing on a diet plan is usually not because we don’t know what we should do. Most realize we:  1. eat less 2. exercise more 3. slow down and 4. drink water, etc., etc. . . . Yet we fail time and time again, even when we believe we are doing the right thing! That’s frustrating and self-defeating.

Weight loss is much more than mere willpower. There is no magic formula. Since we are each uniquely created, it’s primarily an individually  mental, physiological and Spiritual challenge. It’s also a matter of understanding the scientific reasons behind the “why” we can self-destruct.

My book, “Life’s Too Short to Eat Bad Cheese . . .” will make the perfect  motivational New Year’s gift this year. It’s not simply another diet book. With over 241 pages of practical lifestyle applications, it encourages a brand new mental, physical and spiritual approach to becoming a New Creation:

“Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away. Behold, the new has come!”  (2 Corinthians 5:17)

“Life’s Too Short to Eat Bad Cheese” (Nutritional & Life Lessons God Teaches Us) addresses such topics as:

  1. Strive for excellence, not perfection
  2. Why losing weight isn’t simply a matter of willpower!
  3. Why sometimes a cookie isn’t “just a cookie”
  4. Why dieting is like the Westminster Dog Show
  5. Why you can’t outsmart a fat cell
  6. Why physiologically, fad diets never work
  7. The secrets to weight loss success and so much more!

Truth is, God never meant for us to live on complicated, fallacy-laden, restrictive diet plans which clearly reject our Maker’s fundamental psychological, physiological and spiritual wishes.

Healthy-living is not adhering to a “penance principle” of restriction and suffering.  God set Adam in a Garden for a reason and provided the perfect Master Plan for health. Yet people needlessly consume “magic” formulas: “sticks and twigs,” processed packaged foods, drink tasteless protein shakes or restrict their diet needlessly.

Why? There is no need to deny oneself chocolate, cheese, eggs, potatoes, bananas, shrimp or any other food while consuming only rice cakes and celery. Avoidance and flagellation will not get one closer to God unless he enjoys living as a monk!

God gave us the perfect dietary plan in Genesis 1:29 and 9:3. He also instilled us with common sense. I address the fact that we’ve each been formed uniquely with a different chemical make-up. There is no one-size-fits-all diet plan but there are physiological truths we should live by!

“Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do everything for God’s glory.” (1 Corinthians 10:31)

Discover true vitality through a sensible every day eating plan, honoring God in the process!

“Life’s Too Short to Eat Bad Cheese” is filled with realistic illustrations, practical applications and beneficial common sense! If one concentrates on nutrients, they will naturally be healthier because their body will crave healthier choices while resisting uncontrollable cravings. But how does one do that??? I explain how.

Read this book to discover by which means you can become stronger, develop strategies and routinely overcome temptation, becoming confident as a New Creation!

UPDATE: Don’t be dismayed (if it’s still there) by seeing the amazon price of $47.82 – amazon is holding my publisher hostage in order to receive 40% commission! The Ingram Group is negotiating for us.

The paperback book can be purchased from Outskirts Press at the very affordable price of $13.46, or or Barnes and Noble as well as in e-book format for only $7 on

Please don’t give up and settle for second best!  You are worth far more than that!

  1. I’ll be sharing this! As my husband now says, he’s sorry he didn’t go along with my ideas (as you put forth) 42 years ago when we married. Instead he had to get a lifesaving diagnosis-radically change how you eat, exercise and live or else – massive heart attack and/or heart disease. Fortunately, his heart disease was discovered before the massive heart attack!


    • Thank you Debbie, if even one person can change their lifestyle through this encouragement, it’s worth it, isn’t it? So many diseases can be rectified by simply changing one’s diet and yet dieters cling to empty promises, magic pills and false diet prophets to satisfy their beliefs.

      I am so proud of you and your quest to find healthier living. Health is more important than weight loss but weight loss naturally occurs when one eats healthily. Keep up the good work! ❤

      • Absolutely! We appreciate others like you who are trying to help others find a healthier way! Life is so much sweeter when you don’t have to be concerned with what is the right thing to eat or do during these stressful holidays – and just during life in general! We really are happy campers as we are now in rhythm to what to do to continue to eat healthy!

    • No, thank YOU! It’s been out for several years now but reads just like my blog, 🙂 Outskirts Press gives a discount when someone buys from them. I’ve tried to keep it affordable but wish I had the ability to lower the price so all could buy it. (I do sell many at my conferences, praise God, 🙂 ) I wish you lived in Ohio but it’s waaaay too cold right now!!!

      • Thanks for the information. We are here in Illinois, so we are not that far away! It is 3 right now, but feels like 0. A good day to catch up on things and write!! Happy New Year! Brrrrr…
