Just like it is with everything else, the Word of our beautiful Lord and God is the biggest blessing for every topic in human life. God’s Word, when applied in the way that our holy Lord and God intends it to, has benefits way beyond the spiritual realm, into the physical world and makes us look healthy and vibrant just like it did for the Biblical Daniel.
To honor God with your body and living an amazing healthy lifestyle go hand in hand. God wants to make us be more healthy and happy than anything. For that, we all need to glorify God with a healthy lifestyle, and losing weight and to honor God with your body are not different subjects. Here is how you can do both.
So, Here Are Those 5 Amazing Ways:
1.Skip that Coca-Cola drink
Okay, so there two important reasons why you should not drink that Coke at all. The first one is spiritual, and the second is biological.
Coca-Cola commercials have something that all Christians should be aware of. In case you have not noticed, their Christmas commercials are all about Santa Claus. If you are a Christian who loves Jesus, during Christmas, Santa Claus should be your number #1 enemy. Obviously, because Jesus is the “reason for the season” when Christmas time comes. That character of Santa Claus does everything it can to replace Jesus during Christmas. So, personally, I choose not to support a company that during Christmas season fills every tv outlet with commercials filled with Santa Claus and not the Lord Jesus.
With this second reason you will see that when you all you care about is Jesus, you get great benefits for your health. When I stopped drinking that bottle of Coke due to the Santa-Claus reason, it really helped me get so much more stamina and better health, SO much faster and better.
This was due to a couple of scientific issues related to Coca-Cola. First, according to Livestrong.com, Coca-Cola is one of the most acidic beverages on the market. They also report that in an interview with Dr. James McKay, from the Naval Medical Research Institute, he found that “colas are closest in pH level to vinegar–between 2.0 and 3.4”. If you want to have perfect glowing skin and better health, you have to take a unique care of the PH level of the food and drinks that you consume. Your skin pH levels should be around the optimal Ph level of water, which is 8.
To honor God with your body, you really have to stop drinking Coke: Second, it weakens your health system and prevents you from losing weight(and makes you gain weight like crazy) with the excessive amount of sugar it has in just one can. According to Dr. Steven Victor, a dermatologist from Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City in more than 33 years practicing as a doctor, “he’s experienced the effects of soda on his patient’s skin first-hand”. He states:
- “The biggest problem about soda is the crazy amount of sugar,” . “The dangers of sugar to the body are not new, scientists have been studying it for years. When a patient consumes a lot of sugar, it shows in their skin…Soda is a factor in the aging process of the skin because it causes the body to produce all kinds of inflammatory products, I compare it to Pac-Man, going around the body eating good tissue. Diet, and especially soda, greatly affects your skin.”

2. Skip that alcohol
You can do wonders to honor God with your body and lose weight at the SAME time by drinking a lot less alcohol. Again, when all you care about is Jesus, you happen to skip things that are bad for your health. The Lord makes sure to bless you and your overall health like crazy. When I stopped drinking alcohol thanks to Ephesians 5:19, which states “Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit”, I started to see GREAT changes on my health. Too much alcohol can damage your liver. Your liver is necessary for having AMAZING cancer-fighting health and regeneration, but alcohol just destroys it.
And the effects on alcohol on your skin go way beyond that too. According to Refinery29,
“Aside from dehydrating your face, alcohol decreases the body’s level of vitamin A, which is a powerful antioxidant. “It’s important for cell renewal and cell turnover, and it gives you a healthy glow,” says Dr. Bowe. She says a lack of vitamin A can make it harder for your skin to fight off free radicals”.
If you want perfect glowing skin, you should seriously limit the amount of alcohol you drink. But don’t get me wrong, you can drink. The Lord Jesus used to drink wine and drinking is allowed in Christianity and even Judaism because the Lord wants us to enjoy a cup of wine every now and then. We are Christians and not Muslims. Which brings me to my next point.
As if that’s not enough, the incredible food blogger Vani Hari, aka Food Babe, in her post “The Shocking Ingredients In Beer” lists the mind-blowing harmful chemicals that go directly into your system when you drink beer.
She made a list of legal ingredients(allowed by the FDA) that nearly all beers contain in America:
Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) – NEUrotoxin that destroys your metabolism and brain
FD&C Blue 1 (Made from petroleum, linked to allergies, asthma and hyperactivity)
Calcium Disodium EDTA (made from formaldehyde, sodium cayanide, and Ethylenediamine)
Propylene Glycol (an ingredient found in anti-freeze)
Caramel Coloring (Class III or IV made from ammonia and classified as a carcinogen)
FD&C Red 40 (Made from petroleum, linked to allergies, asthma and hyperactivity)

And a LOT more of carcinogenic, jaw-dropping ingredients that she lists in her post.
You see, when you take care of the Word of God in your heart, the Lord automatically takes care of you. He is as beautiful as that, glory be to our beautiful Lord Jesus forever and ever.
Skipping harmful alcohol is one of the most amazing Biblical health tips you will ever get. And Food Expert Vani Hari confirms it as well, since she states:
“So, inherently, alcohol by itself is not a healthy person’s best friend – but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Beer, especially American beer, is made with all sorts of ingredients beyond the basic hops, malt and yeast”.
3. Drink wine (Not “hardcore” alcohol)
To honor God with your body, and just infuse your biological cellular activity with cancer-fighting and mind-blowing regeneration skills, you have to drink wine. Since our Lord loves us SO much, when free radicals(explained at the beginning) entered human cells because of the Original Sin, He gave us ways to combat it so we wouldn’t die so quickly.
He created something called antioxidants. They combat free radicals.
What contains one of the most powerful and life-changing antioxidants in human history? Wine. Wine is the miracle drink from Heaven.
Wine is one of the Biblical drinks by excellence that we found to possess life-changing effects to your health(not a coincidence obviously). It contains powerful antioxidants and a secret substance called resveratrol which is SO powerful in fighting skin aging and toxins that some doctors even use it to fight cancer.
WebMD even states Resveratrol does all these wonders:
“Heart disease: It’s thought to help reduce inflammation, lower LDL or “bad” cholesterol, and make it more difficult for clots to form that can lead to a heart attack.
Cancer: It could limit the spread of cancer cells and start killing them.
Alzheimer’s: It may protect nerve cells from damage and fight the plaque buildup that can lead to the disease.
Diabetes: Resveratrol helps prevent insulin resistance, a condition in which the body becomes less sensitive to the blood sugar-lowering hormone insulin. The condition can lead to diabetes”.
No wonder our Lord put it in the Bible so we could all use it. If only people studied the Bible more right?
Livestrong.com also depicts: “As an antioxidant, resveratrol helps protect cells from damage by free radicals, which are potentially harmful atoms and molecules that occur naturally in the environment. Results of test tube and animal studies suggests resveratrol may raise HDL, or good, cholesterol, protect blood vessels from damage, prevent blood clots and reduce risk of diabetes, notes MayoClinic.com. It may also inhibit the growth of cancer cells”.
Our Lord Jesus used to drink wine with his disciples and as opposed to drinking other types of alcohol which can severely damage your skin and liver, wine is actually GREAT for obtaining incredible health. We have to really thank the Lord for giving us wine.
3. Fight Anxiety
To honor God with your body, (and the neurons in your brain will thank you), never take an anxiety pill, or any other anxiety remedy other than prayer. Pills, therapy and any other kind of human treatment for anxiety, depression, and mental health are a hoax and a lie from the devil. The devil wants you to think that those pills can help you.
Fighting anxiety is crucial for a longer life, and to lose weight as well. Anxiety make the liver produce hormones that can be detrimental to your skin health, and in people with oily skin problems, it can cause their skin to become saturated with acne.
We have an effective solution for anxiety that doesn’t even require Xanax or any other type of hoax. As Christians, we don’t fight anxiety with Xanax pills. That is because we have an option that is SO much better than Xanax pills, and this option never fails to take my stress and anxiety away. This solution is praying with a set of amazing Bible verses that you need to ask the Lord to make a reality in your life and trust me, he will do it. To learn all about those Bible verses go here.
5. Drink Much Less Coffee
You can honor God with your body by drinking less coffee. We all love coffee, but if you are drinking excessive amounts of it, you might have an spiritual problem that you need the Lord to take care of. If you find yourself constantly tired or depleted of energy, and the only solution that helps you is to drink coffee, then you have a spiritual problem, not physical. When you pray and ask the Lord to fix this, you will find that the last thing you need to get energy in the morning is coffee.
When that happens, you can start drinking less coffee, because for obtaining a perfect glowing skin, it’s necessary to significantly reduce the amount we drink of it. It can make your skin get less blood, therefore less nutrients which will result in a really awful skin.
According to InStyle magazine, caffeine causes constriction to your blood vessels and therefore the vessels your skin surface won’t deliver the antioxidants and nutrients that are necessary for your cells to thrive in collagen production. You can read more about that here.
The beloved Bible is full of medical health tips. Hidden tip: Follow Christ and EVEN your health, body and skin will be perfect.
