Loosing weight can be challenging. One day you finally got it down- you exercised, eat 3 healthy meals, and didn’t snack too much. Then the next day you fall off the bandwagon and eat a slice of pie and maybe a few other sweets. We all have been there. I have been there! What’s important is that we move forward and continue to try to live a healthier lifestyle. And know that it’s ok to treat yourself once in a while. ;)
It’s important to have God along with you when you decide to loose weight or live a healthier lifestyle. Having him there along the way will help you tremendously. He will help you navigate through your fears, doubts, and worries.
And books can be helpful too. There are so many fitness/health related books out there, that it’s so hard to know which one’s to choose! And it’s hard finding one’s that focus specifically on God.
Therefore, here are 8 Christian Books to read to help you live a healthier lifestyle!:
If God truly cares, then why does food feel like an unending battle that you're fighting alone? You want to believe the next diet will be different but it feels like you're never really going to keep the weight off. Truth is, God deeply cares about every aspect of your being and has created you to be healthy by design. Somewhere along the line you've gotten off-track, without knowing it, so what you know should be easy; feels impossible. This 21 day daily devotional teaches you essential spiritual truths about your weight loss journey in simple, easy to digest, daily readings and exercises. This is not a how-to book, but instead shows you the patterns that have kept you in bondage, and the biblical truths that will set you free. Shifting your perspective and focus so weight loss comes naturally from a place of self-love and Godly devotion instead of endless diets and will-power that lead to despair and self-loathing. Stop fighting the battle, let God be your guide.
Do you eat when you’re bored? Or when you're worried or stressed out? Is it something you do for fun or to avoid doing something else? If so . . . the truth will set you free!
In this Bible study, you’ll get hands-on experience with taking off the lies that make you overeat and putting on the truth that will set you free from the control of food. Through daily Bible studies and practical renewing-of-the-mind tools such as truth journaling and Scripture prayers, you’ll develop a habit of going to God rather than food for help with life.
Science is beginning to understand that our thinking has a deep and complicated relationship with our eating. Our thoughts before, during, and after eating profoundly impact our food choices, our digestive health, our brain health, and more. Yet most of us give very little thought to our food beyond taste and basic nutritional content.
In this revolutionary book, Dr. Caroline Leaf packs an incredible amount of information that will change readers' eating and thinking habits for the better. Rather than getting caught up in whether we should go raw or vegan, gluten-free or paleo, Leaf shows readers that every individual is unique, has unique nutritional needs, and has the power to impact their own health through the right thinking. There's no one perfect solution. Rather, she shows us how to change the way we think about food and put ourselves on the path towards health.
Here’s the secret sauce: The Daniel Plan is designed to be done in a supportive community relying on God’s instruction for living.
When it comes to getting healthy, two are always better than one. Our research has revealed that people getting healthy together lose twice as much weight as those who do it alone. God never meant for you to go through life alone and that includes the journey to health.
Unlike the thousands of other books on the market, this book is not about a new diet, guilt-driven gym sessions, or shame-driven fasts. The Daniel Plan shows you how the powerful combination of faith, fitness, food, focus, and friends will change your health forever, transforming you in the most head-turning way imaginably―from the inside out.
The numbers are staggering. More than a billion people live with chronic pain. Yet the perfect human body was created to repair and heal itself. Why are so many millions of people living well beneath healthy? Why does homeostasis seem so far from our experience?

Davis offers an in-depth profile of his life and health history and explains how sickness is often an accumulation of emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual wounds that take their toll over months and years. Readers take hold of the knowledge, tools, and motivation to leverage God’s curing design.
Most of us think God is not concerned with what we eat, but the Bible actually offers great insight and instruction about the effects of food on our bodies. Dr. Colbert introduces a revolutionary sugar detox method, combined with an anti-inflammatory form of the modified Mediterranean diet that resolves a broad spectrum of diseases, including diabetes, heart disease, dementia, cancer, and osteoarthritis. Just imagine -- understanding how food alone can produce mental clarity, balanced weight, and longevity. Includes meal plans.
So many of the books within the diet and fitness space focus on vanity or superficial reasons for striving for personal health and wellbeing. Is it any wonder then that a motivation that’s so surface-level has such a slim chance of working long-term? But Alec Penix believes that all things are possible if you use faith as your bedrock.
