Research done at the University of Scranton suggests that just 8% of people achieve their New Year's goals. I choose to do something much more effective than a New Year's Resolution.

Ketogenic Diet for Weight Loss and Health - Part 1 of 4

It seems like everywhere you go, people are on the ketogenic diet. Patti and I kept hearing about the health benefits of it from natural health specialists whom we respected, and were considering it for ourselves. Then, several people on our staff began reporting that they were losing weight and having pains in their body disappear as a result of following the ketogenic guidelines, so we decided to try it for ourselves. The biggest benefit to me was that my food cravings disappeared! Also, we were able to lose about one pound per week for 14 weeks. (Lots of careful eating and fasting were needed to accomplish this.) Anyone embarking on the ketogenic diet should be aware that it generally does not promote rapid weight loss. You may find that you lose inches before you lose many pounds, so you will need patience and commitment to see results on your scale. However, you will likely experience other, more immediate benefits in your body that will motivate you to continue on. This diet causes a release of ketones in your body. Fasting also causes a release of ketones. Thus the ketogenic diet produces health benefits similar to fasting, and is even called a fasting-mimicking diet.  Get FREE access to our 12-part online training series on Take Charge of Your Health by Dr. Mark Virkler beginning January 1.

For I know the thoughts and plans for your future, to give you hope and to give you joy.”

Read MATTHEW 1 (NEW KING JAMES)   Father, what do You want to tell me about the Nativity Story today? “Walk to the gates of Christmas Mountain again; and come closer to the Father’s house.  Come, come inside the house, and see the fire burning.  You see Me coming to you, and you sitting down back on the sofa, to hear more about the story of the Nativity; to see things you’ve not seen before.”

Read LUKE 2:1-7   “Think back to Mary and Joey, and day one of the Birth of Jesus. Remember, Joseph was a carpenter, not a warrior. He was an unknown in the world at the time, as was Mary. Neither of these two had the money, resources or the power or authority to change the world.  All they had was this simple baby that had been born, and the responsibility to take care of it and nurture the baby and watch it grow.”
