Book Description

June 5 2007

Your body is by God. God preprogrammed you to look great, have outrageous health, and experience incredible happiness. In the human body, God created a perfect design, equipped with all the organs, tissues, and cells necessary for health, production, and reproduction. The problem, asserts Dr. Ben Lerner, is when we as humans interfere with Gods design for our bodies. Junk food, high-stress living, and neglecting exercise are just a few of the things we do to hinder our bodies performance.

In Body by God, Dr. Lerner offers a comprehensive plan for getting in touch with our bodies in four areas: nutrition, exercise, stress management, and time management. His 5-in-5 plan is designed to instill the good habits that will lead to optimum health benefits. Readers will learn how to get in shape with 10-minute workouts, reprogram the way they react to stress, and more. Owners Manual Tips give specific ways to apply the material to real life. Our bodies are fearfully and wonderfully made. With the help of Body by God, readers will learn how to achieve the highest level of performance from Gods handiwork.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dr. Michael L. Johnson Feb. 28 2004
A Great Book!! "Body by God" is a must read if you plan on living a healthy, happy, and organized life. Dr. Ben has helped me organize my life since reading this powerful and moving book. How, you might ask??? One example is that I have FINALLY found the balance in life that I was seeking between family(I'm married with 5 kids),work, and personal training thanks to this book. The "un-diet" is great and I loved the passages from scripture. This book is a must read and one that you will find yourself going back to time and time again.

Dr. Ben Lerner was the 1996 and 2000 U.S. Olympic Team Doctor and is the author of New York Times and Christian Bookseller's Association bestselling book, Body by God: The Owner's Manual for Maximized Living. He has been teaching the Body by God program in hundreds of organizations and churches all over the U.S. and Canada for the last decade. His book: Body by God: The Owner's Manual for Maximized Living, is an easy-to-follow and thorough book which reads like a reference guide to the body and is divided into five main parts:
-- Maximizing your Life.
-- Fueling Your Body by God. (nutrition)
-- Moving Your Body by God. (exercise)
-- Stress Management for Your Body by God.
-- Time Management for Your Body by God.
Relying on scientific research and common sense, this book holds the key to a step-by-step program to getting stronger physically and emotionally. While you will find the health and nutritional aspect of Dr. Ben Lerner's book is an excellent Total Health Program and you'll especially appreciate the sections on stress management and exercise. Among many invaluable insights in these areas, you'll learn:
-- How to implement a full action plan to strengthen your body and mind.
-- Design a Moving Zone Workout that's perfect for your age and fitness level.
-- How to slash the negative impact of stress--even when you can't change your circumstances.
-- Weight lifting programs--3 to 30 minutes long--that will help you get in the best shape ever.
-- Fat-burning aerobic exercises that require little time and no pain.
-- Ten tips for feeling less stressed and having a greater sense of peace.
You will be inspired by Lerner's own stories of tragedies and life hurdles he had to overcome.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book changed my life! June 13 2004
This is not just another diet book! In fact it's an "un-diet".
It offers practical and achievable ways to radically transform your life (at any stage) one step at a time.
Not just a food and fitness guide but a guide to maximize your life through time management, stress management as well as weight loss, food and exercises.
Dr. Lerner's sense of humor is encouraging and entertaining along the way. In just a short time I have increased my energy and lowered my stress and I am looking forward to more results as I continue this program.

Is it all the pot lucks? Who knows. We need to read all books on health and nutrition and God's Word on healing. Check out also "A More Excellent Way" by pastor Henry Wright. Good book on the spiritual roots of disease. "Deadly Emotions" by Doc Don Colbert also will keep stinking thinking from destroying your temple.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excelent Read Jan. 31 2004
By A Customer
I love reading health books. Even more, I love reading health books that promote faith. For the past two years I have been nothing but a health freak. I read Body By God and was inspired by it. I really do use it as a "owner's manual". I feel a lot better than usual and I'm probably looking a lot better than I used to.
This is an excelent book and I suggest it to anyone. And a helpful hint the section on food really worked for me.
So go on and give it a read.
