What Would Jesus Eat?
Don Colbert, M.D.
Thomas Nelson - 2002

With biblical and methodical insight, Dr. Don Colbert recommends asking two key questions about everything you eat today: Why do I eat this? Would Jesus eat this? The answers, he affirms, will lead you to a new, nutritious way of living and eating.

In this comprehensive eating program, Dr. Colbert reveals that Jesus' diet is the ideal choice for those struggling in America's food-frenzied culture. Thousands of years ago, God laid out a sensible approach to eating, with predictble results: a healthy body and long life. By examining His eating plan you will discover:

  • The health benefits of foods Jesus ate and the health risks of foods He avoided
  • How to follow Jesus' eating model with foods that are available today
  • Jesus' favorite food
  • Why foods forbidden in the Old Testament dietary laws are unhealthy
  • The staple of Jesus' diet
  • The type of exercise Jesus participated in
  • What desserts Jesus might have enjoyed
  • The "fast foods" Jesus ate
  • How Jesus is the ultimate role model in all things, even diet
If you are ready to make a lifestyle change and want to do it in a God-honoring way.  What Would Jesus Eat? is the guide for you.
