Men need encouragement to get healthy. Men need encouragement to get up and get moving for a better future. According to the Center for Disease Control, there are over 150 million men in the U.S., and one third of them are obese, leading a large percentage of them to struggle with chronic lower respiratory diseases, diabetes, and heart disease. Steve Reynolds, the “Anti-Fat Pastor,” writes from the perspective of a pastor/coach who has sat where they are sitting: on the couch living a sedentary life. “My wake-up call came when my health started to deteriorate to the point where I was slowly killing myself,” he writes. He went to the Bible and learned how to have a Bod4God lifestyle, and the result was losing 120 pounds.
In Get Off the Couch, Steve Reynolds outlines an “in your face” call to A.C.T.I.O.N. with simple and practical solutions designed to get men off the couch and back into the game of truly living life.
