The quick fix diet isn’t working. How about a more sustainable solution?

We all want to feel good about the way we look – we want to be stronger, leaner, and more alert! We want energy for ministry, kids’ activities, and taking care of aging parents. BUT we’re not going to achieve these desires with our sedentary lives.  Even if we workout once a day, it’s only
