Who to trust?

To get healthy we need to educate ourselves first right? Where do we go? Internet? Magazines? Others opinions? There are so many diets, exercise plans, and health ideas out there that it is hard to know what is right for you. May I suggest reading the scriptures first. In the Docterine and Covenants (LDS scripture, reveleation given to Joseph Smith from Heavenly Father) we are given instructions of the do's and don't in health. If you look to the right side you can find a link to read about the LDS health code called the Word of Wisdom. From what to eat, getting enough sleep to what not to drink. I think reading this and maybe writing down some changes you might want to make in your lifestyle would be very beneficial. The promises we are given if we follow it are worth the effort. I always like to think that if Bill Gates wrote a book and said if you read it you are promised to get a million dollars I would read it and study it everyday and live by it:) So we have the scriptures from God and we will be given so much more than a million dollars in promises. Why would't we read them, study and live by it. Hard but worth it. Anyway I really love the books above written by Melanie Douglass. You can get them at Deseret Book. She gives helpful suggestions in how to apply the Word of Wisdom in your everyday life. I really like them and would reccomend them if you like to read.

Melanie was one of my aerobics instructors for years. She is amazing! I have always really admired her - way before she even wrote the books.
