I can't remember a time in my life that I wasn't desperately hungering for this book! When as a child even my sisters would call me fatso. When as a teenager the boys would pick me first for the football game, but never ask me out on a date. When between the ages of 18 & 20, my ideal of being wanted by a man, was being raped. When at the age of 21, I lost my father, the only person who ever told me I was beautiful. When I spent the last 30 years hating myself for how ugly I had become, knowing that no man would ever want me or find me attractive, and even believing for most of those 30 years that God hated me and had abandoned me. Oh, how I longed for a this book!

In "If My Body is a Temple, Then I Was a Megachurch", Scott Davis shares through laughter and tears his struggles with his weight, his life on the road, the embarrassing times, the funny times, and the sad and hurtful moments that came from being overweight, but he also shares those inspirational times. Davis shares intimate moments during his journey, before and after his decision to make changes in his life. How our strengths can also be our weaknesses. Davis shares about the love of his family and friends, who were his biggest support system, even as they in many cases had to use "tough love" to show that support.

Davis shares the plan that he used to lose over 100 pounds in six months (with no exercise), but more than that he shares how the love of God encouraged him moment to moment, day to day, month to month. How his passion and love for God, and the desire to always be obedient to God's Word, kept him on the path to transforming his body into a "Temple of God". Using scripture after scripture, Davis shows how losing weight is just as much about our relationship with God as it is physical, and how prayer can transform not only our bodies, but all areas of our lives.

In "If My Body is a Temple, Then I Was a Megachurch", Davis shares that giving God all of ourselves is the only way we can truly make the changes in our lives that glorify God.

For me this is not just a book about how to lose weight....it's a funny and at times sad look at life. A look at how our actions and words can affect others lives. How we can be encouragers instead of enablers. How an ill-timed joke can cause others pain. It's a book about taking responsibility for our own actions at the dinner table. About taking ownership of what we are and not blaming others. It's a book about the love of family and friends, but mostly about the love of God, and the tranformations we can all make in all areas of our lives when we give back to God everything that He has given us, and let Him be the pilot of our journey.

It's a book of hope!!!!!!!!"

Scott Davis is a very funny guy, and reading his story of weight loss is definitely a laugh out loud kind of book. Some of the predicaments he finds himself in, especially at his heaviest weight, are humorous but also very sad. Somehow Scott is able to look at those times with humour.

Scott's journey to a healthy lifestyle involves an incredible support system at QWLCA (Quick Weight Loss Center) based in Atlanta. He followed a strict program, and visited the weight loss center three times a week. If you are able to take advantage of this incredible facility and support system, it sounds like a great place for anyone who wants to lose weight and keep it off.

This book is basically a personal memoir. Scott talks about how his Christian faith was really the most important factor in finally losing the extra weight that had followed him around for years. He turned his focus from satisfying his desire for food with a desire for God. (Ebook received courtesy of MediaGuests, in exchange for my honest review.)

About the Book: If My Body Is a Temple, Then I Was a Megachurch: My journey of losing 132 pounds with no exercise!

IF THERE'S ONE THING that's guaranteed, it's that you will bust a gut reading comedian Scott Davis' hilarious yet poignant story about how he lost 132 pounds without any exercise. Spiced with his trademark comedy and self-deprecating humor, Scott serves up a dose of reality about the correlation between the state of our hearts and the location of our waistline. Scott explores the spiritual depths and practical steps to losing significant weight and shows how you can adopt a healthy lifestyle too.

Whether you need to lose 150 pounds or five pounds, Scott's hilarious memoir will not only make you laugh but it will also equip you for your own journey to a happier and healthier you.

About The Author:

Scott is a comedian, singer and entertainer. He received Christ at the age of sixteen on July 10, 1979. He graduated from Liberty University where he attended on a full scholarship for traveling with the Light Singers. While working toward his degree in cross-cultural studies, Scott traveled across the U.S. and to ten foreign countries.

Scott's ministry has continued in the U.S. and abroad since his graduation in 1984. He has appeared on Mark Lowry's videos and has written comedy for Mark while under contract with Word Records. For a year, Scott appeared weekly on the national television show, "The Mark & Kathy Show," with Mark Lowry and Kathy Troccoli. Along with his weekly appearances, he has been a guest on numerous religious and secular radio and television broadcasts, including an appearance with comedian Dennis Swanberg on Swan's Place.

Today, Scott conducts GET REAL national conferences with the nation's top speakers and musicians. He also presents music and comedy concert events.

My Review:

This is a great book at what motivated Scott Davis to lose the weight and gives the reader insight into why Scott allowed himself to gain so much weight in the first place. I was expecting an insider's look into how he did it but it's more of a retrospective into why he began eating, how he felt during his binges and what he took away from the process in losing all the weight. In the end, Scott lost the weight through Quick Loss Weight Centers of Atlanta, which promises that you can lose between 3-5 pounds per week and still eat real food.

However, if the reader is looking for what the program looks like, you'll have to consult the Quick Loss Weight Centers of Atlanta. I was disappointed from that perspective but if you are looking into what lessons he learned along his journey with a comic flair and a whole lot of laughs then this is perfect for you.

I received this book in a eBook format compliments of Media Guests for my honest review and I would rate this a 3 out of 5 stars just for the fact it's a bit misleading on what you are hoping to get out of it and what you really do based on my comments above. If you're looking for another diet book, then this is not it. It's a personal memoir of one man's journey through weight loss.

As I started to read this book, the first thing that became extremely clear to me was his use of the bible and since I am an extremely spiritual/religious woman, this was something that struck a chord with me. Right from the start Scott suggests that if our bodies are our temples, then why would "I" treat them so poorly. That statement slapped me in the face and made me sit up and think. I stopped all reading and considered exactly what that meant to me as a disciple of Jesus Christ.

I have hid wrappers before, I am sure that most people who are overweight have some sort of a stash that nobody knows about. I however, never keep my stash in my house, I always eat the evidence first and I've been known to stop at the gas station to throw garbage away. In this book Scott talks about hiding wrappers in the trash and moving trash to cover over the wrappers. I know this hit home for me. There is a line in the book that has a definite meaning its talking about not being your own person (like the apostle Paul) only this time it's because food is a barrier. He said "Same with me when it comes to food. I'm not my own. I'm enslaved". Yes, I certainly can see how someone's life to feel that way, enslaved to food. I've often said to others that food is to me what alcohol is to an alcoholic. This is just the same thing worded different.

This book parallels scripture, mixed with humor to illustrate an ordinary life that had extraordinary consequences. Scott, made some seriously valid points on weight loss that takes forever, as a person who has much to lose, this is something to help one lose motivation in a hurry. I love how he states that he wants to feel himself shrinking so his confidence goes in the other direction. Scott talks about golden nuggets, advice to live by.

The best part of this book, was how easily it is for someone to relate to, anyone who has ever have an issue with weight could identify with some if not all of what Scott went through. This is a fun read, a clean read and I would highly recommend this book to anyone who would like to consider weight loss.

This book starts off with hilarious humor and then gets more personal as the author details his struggles with sinful gluttony and losing weight. I read it mostly for the humor because I'm at a healthy weight, but it also scared me a little, so I'm going to be more careful about what I allow into my temple. The theology in the book is solid and it's encouraging to see the gift of evangelism being used effectively by the Spirit of God in his life. Overall it's an engaging personal memoir and it will especially hit home with anyone who struggles with an addiction. Whatever your false idol is, you will probably see some of it in here. The shame and guilt, the hiding and binging, the self destruction and spiritual damage are all present here as they are with any false idol and addiction.

I especially recommend this book for anyone who struggles with weight. It will encourage you and help you see hope where maybe you have none. It's not a weight loss plan and what he used may not be for everybody, but as he says in the book self control is the key for 99.9% of people. You will find some food for thought in here and that will fill you up mentally and spiritually. It will last longer than a cheeseburger and will be better for you. This was free for me on Kindle, but if you are struggling with health issues and are looking at an early death, buy this book and get motivated to rebuild the temple of God. We are called to glorify God with our lives and with our bodies.
