The Christian’s Key to a healthy body is plain and simple: Proper eating and adequate exercise. Not two of the easiest things to do, so the key word is discipline. When we hear the word discipline we think of restraint and control, but let us not leave out the key word: Authority.

The Christian’s key to Health and Fitness is taking Authority.

Matthew 16:19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: Jesus Christ has given us the keys (Authority) that we need to fulfill our Christian’s responsibility to maintain a healthy and fit Body.

Each and every one of us that have believed on the name of Jesus Christ for our salvation are possessors of the authority of all heaven. Jesus said that we have the keys of the kingdom. Keys represent authority.

We possess the keys of the kingdom, in other words WE HAVE AUTHORITY. Nothing that the enemy of my soul throws at me will deter me, slow me down, or cause me to give up, (including keeping my body healthy and fit),because I possess the keys of authority. The power of heaven binds what I bind and the power of heaven looses what I loose.

Discipline in Proper Eating

A few tips that have helped people with the discipline required to reduce these unhealthy foods are, smaller plates. People are accustomed to eating their whole plate. Therefore, eating from a smaller plate allows one to eat a meal with a reduced portion. Another tip follows the same path of discipline. A bag of chips which normally contains an unhealthy amount of salt can raise cholesterol and can be reduced by counting each chip inside a single portion bag. With this knowledge, one can eat half the amount of chips they counted the first time, and be successful in reducing the amount of unhealthy salt in their body.

In addition, other known foods that contain unhealthy effects can be decreased by following this same formula.  Foods that are nutritious and beneficial to our temple are three daily servings of fruit, vegetables, lowfat or no fat milk. Substituting white grains for brown grains like brown rice, oatmeal). Fruit and oatmeal have been eaten by many before exercise due; to their, slow burning calorie result that allows people to have energy needed for proper exercise.

 

Discipline in Proper Exercise

Cardio activity ranges from brisk walking, jogging and any activity that is done at a moderate level with an increasing rate; in order, to speed up ones metabolism. Importantly, an exercise at a moderate level is key for one to be able to maintain the discipline to have the desire to follow and maintain a proper exercise routine.  Weight training is best performed with the lifting or pulling of weight that requires exerting force that builds and maintains strength.

A safe appropriate challenging weight that allows one to perform 3 sets of ten is common.   If this is new information, discipline in proper eating, and exercise requires one to develop new controlled challenging routine ultimately benefits ones temple; but also, motivates others to improve health. All glory and praise to God, for the ability and desire to for these discipline improvements.
