With a little help we can change.More than sixty percent of Americans are overweight.

According to The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, obesity is a problem that affects over one third of the American population. Seventeen percent of this number is comprised of children aged two to nineteen years of age. Eleven percent of those children are morbidly obese. In the past three decades, the number of obese Americans has more than doubled, most dramatically in children.The list of health problems associated with obesity is staggering. Rather than admit to a food addiction, many look for a magic bullet. New “miracles” are touted daily.

Take this pill and melt fat away while you sleep. Eat this berry and you will have boundless energy, plus you will lose weight effortlessly. Buy this belt and vibrate your fat away while you watch TV. Hah!There are drawbacks with these “miracles.” One: they are expensive. Two: they don’t work. And three: many are dangerous to your health.What if I told you that the solution is inexpensive, effective AND safe?

Would you try it? What if I told you the real problem is sin? It is the sin of gluttony. The Bible has much to say about our sinful relationship with food. The solution is to change the way we think about food, with a resulting change of behavior. It’s that easy.

And that hard.Ironically, Church-going Christians rank highest in these statistics. There are many weight-loss books on the market, both Christian and secular. And though the problem is no laughing matter, I believe the humor and truth will speak to people fighting this battleWhat qualifies me to write this book?

As I said, I am well acquainted with this sin battle. It takes some people longer to figure things out than others. That would be me. Until a few years ago, the sin was winning. To date I have lost eighty pounds, and have kept it off for more than three years.
