How To Advance Your Swagger, IMPROVE YOURSELF & HELP OTHERS PART 10: The Mediterranean Diet and Health Reasons Why Yahweh Wants Us Healthy, Well and Fit

4 Reasons Why God Wants Us Healthy, Well and Fit

The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 10:31 that whatever we do we’re to do it to the glory of God. It also tells us in Isaiah that we were created and formed by God to glorify Him.  This is our primary purpose in life – to glorify God. We do that when we care for our body and live a healthy lifestyle.

Our Body is God’s Temple and for Us to Care For

One scripture that reminds us that our body is God’s temple is 1 Corinthians 6:19-20. God’s Holy Spirit lives inside a believer.  After we accept Jesus into heart, God gives us His Spirit to help us live the kind of life He wants us to live.  Since God actually lives in us, Paul tells us in htis verse that our body is His temple.  Since God “bought” us with a high price, Jesus’ death, than we are obligated to care for our body which is His temple.

Being Healthy is Being a Good Witness

Acts 1:8 reminds us that we are to be witnesses for other people.  People look for us to be models of the Christian faith.  We ought to desire to live our lives in a way that represents our faith well.  Taking care of our health is one way that we can be a good witness.

You’ll Have More Energy to Do God’s Work

Ephesians 2:10 helps us see that we are God’s masterpiece, created to do the good things that He had planned a long time ago for us to do.  We all know that the more fit and healthy we are the more energy we will have.  The more energy that we have, the more we can put into whatever task we are doing.  We’ll also be better able to sustain ourself for the long haul.

The Mediterranean Diet and Health: Proven Benefits in Countless Studies 

Scientists have intensely studied the eating patterns characteristic of the Mediterranean Diet for more than half a century.

Shortly after World War II, Ancel Keys and colleagues (including Paul Dudley White, later President Eisenhower’s heart doctor) organized the remarkable Seven Countries Study to examine the hypothesis that Mediterranean-eating patterns contributed directly to improved health outcomes. This long-running study examined the health of almost thirteen thousand middle-aged men in the United States, Japan, Italy, Greece, the Netherlands, Finland, and then-Yugoslavia.

When the data were examined, it was clear that people who ate a diet where fruits and vegetables, grains, beans, and fish were the basis of daily meals were healthiest. Topping the chart were residents of Crete. Even after the deprivations of World War II – and in part, perhaps, because of them –  the cardiovascular health of Crete residents exceeded that of US residents. Researchers attributed the differences to diet.

Out of this extensive work came an understanding that certain Mediterranean-eating patterns were remarkably connected with good health. From this conclusion emerged the concept of a “Mediterranean Diet” that could promote lifelong good health.

In subsequent years, hundreds if not thousands of additional studies have added to the body of scientific evidence supporting the “gold standard” status of traditional Mediterranean Diet eating patterns.  These studies show that eating the Med way may:

  • Lengthen your life 
  • Improve Brain Function
  • Defend you from chronic diseases 
  • Fight certain cancers 
  • Lower your risk for heart disease, high blood pressure and elevated “bad” cholesterol levels
  • Protect you from diabetes 
  • Aid your weight loss and management efforts 
  • Keep away depression
  • Safeguard you from Alzheimer’s disease
  • Ward off Parkinson’s disease 
  • Improve rheumatoid arthritis 
  • Improve eye health
  • Reduce risk of dental disease
  • Help you breathe better 
  • Lead to healthier babies
  • Lead to improved fertility
