Today both our waistlines and bookshelves are bulging, and yet every year we continue to search for the next easy answer to painless weight loss. Have you ever wondered what we ate before all of the hype? Today in America approximately 70% of Americans are overweight or obese, a number that has risen at epidemic levels in the last 40 years. Is the church in better shape than the American culture? Sadly, the church today is in worse condition with an average of 76% of church members and pastors in the overweight to obese category. And in a review of obesity in world religions, evangelicals are dramatically heavier than any other world religion. In fact ,one of the lead researchers said, " America is becoming known as a nation of gluttony and obesity and churches are a feeding ground for this problem". A tragic accusation for a group that is called to represent Jesus Christ to the world. God provided the proper fuel for our bodies when he created every green plan, seed bearing plant, and fruit on Day 3 of creation. These foods sufficiently feed and fuel the body, optimizing function, the immune system, renewing strength, and providing disease resistance. The growing body of scientific evidence confirms that making a simple shift toward foods that God created, not only prevents disease but also has the power to reverse diseases such as heart disease and diabetes. God's plan is always perfect. Based upon extensive research from thousands of research articles, hundreds of books, his medical practice and the timeless wisdom of God's word, Dr. Stoll shares God's perfect plan for food and health that was designed to draw us back to a daily or bite-by-bite relationship with Him. The forty chapters in this book represent a transformational journey toward a biblically balanced understanding of health and a revelational understanding of the power of food that will strengthen both the body and the spirit.

Dr. Stoll has managed to combine three conceptual truths that are oftentimes separated in unrelated sources in order to provide a dynamic tool that speaks to the complete person. Alive! brings health to the body, wholeness to the soul (mind, will, and emotions), and growth to the spirit in an unprecedented format.
