If you have started trying to eat healthy, you may be facing some challenges.  There is a lot of information out there about what’s good for you and what’s not.  When I first started trying to eat right, I know I was confused by all the conflicting information out there. “Eat margarine. It’s better for you than butter.” “Don’t eat margarine. It contains trans fatty acid.”

Then I discovered a book called “What the Bible Says About Healthy Living” by Dr. Rex Russell. In the book he discusses how God has laid out specifically what we should eat for good health and a long life.  Then he talked about the foods that God said we are to eat and how eventually modern scientists came to the same conclusion that yes we should eat these things if we want good health.

But the most important thing I got from the book was simple and easy to remember guidelines to follow for eating healthy. Here are three guidelines he says you should use in making everyday decisions about what to eat.

  1. Eat what God intended for us to eat for food.
  2. Eat what God intended for us to eat for food in its closest state as he created it before man gets it and tries to turn it into something he thinks is better.
  3. Never make any one food your God.  Only God should be God in your life.

God tells us in great detail in the books of Genesis and Leviticus what we should eat for food.  All you need to do is read these books and apply the principles.
