Men! It's time to get up, get moving, and get healthy for a better future. According to the Center for Disease Control, there are over 150 million men in the U.S., and one third of them are obese, leading a large percentage of them to struggle with chronic lower respiratory diseases, diabetes, and heart disease. Steve Reynolds, the "Anti-Fat Pastor," writes from the perspective of a pastor/coach who has sat where you are likely sitting: on the couch living a sedentary life. "My wake-up call came when my health started to deteriorate to the point where I was slowly killing myself," he writes. He went to the Bible and learned how to have a Bod4God lifestyle, and the result was losing an incredible 120 pounds!
In Get Off the Couch, Steve Reynolds outlines an in-your-face call to A.C.T.I.O.N. with simple and practical solutions designed to get you off the couch and back into the game of truly living life:
Aware: of the risks of continuing unhealthy lifestyle and of the "playbook"--what the Bible says about health
Commit: to getting off the couch and into the "game of life"
Transform: the way you think and live to leave a powerful legacy
Incorporate: simple basics of eating healthier and exercising
Organize: how to put this all together so that it remains doable for a lifetime and how to develop a team for success
Navigate: developing a game plan for health that works and making your "dash" count
