Everything you need to know about living fit and thin can be found in the Bible. You don’t even have to go digging through the entire Bible to find this important, invaluable and all inclusive information. All you need to do is go to the beginning, the book of Genesis and read the story of Adam and Eve. If you have your Bible’s, you can turn to Genesis 2:15. That verse states that God took man and placed him in the Garden. After placing him in the Garden, God then gave Adam three specific instructions or commands that were meant for him to live fit and healthy for the rest of his life. Okay, pay close attention and commit these to memory :
God has laid out the formula for living a long, healthy, and prosperous life. Remember to do something physical every day.
1. First God instructed Adam to work and cultivate the Garden. This was God’s way of providing Adam with his physical activity for each day. Just as God created the heavens and the Earth in six days and rested on the seventh, you too should do the same. That is your formula for success.
2. The second instruction God gave Adam was in the next verse Genesis 2:16 which was to eat freely of every tree in the Garden. God was placing great significance on those foods which are grown. You too should incorporate an abundance of fruits and vegetables in your diet each day.
3. The final command God gave Adam was to be disciplined and obedient. In Genesis 2:17, He tells him not to eat from the forbidden tree. Along your fitness journey, you will also encounter many forbidden trees in your Garden. I’m talking about those fried chicken and pork chop trees, those potato chip and honey bun trees, and those sweet potato pie and chocolate cake trees. Just remember to exercise discipline in your eating and in your physical fitness.
God has laid out the formula for living a long, healthy, and prosperous life. Remember to do something physical every day, eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, and be disciplined and obedient in all you do. This is your God-given formula for being fit and thin.
Be Blessed & Be Fit!
