Wesley’s Diet, Exercise Tips Promote Health

Ecologically grown vegetables. Methodism founder John Wesley stressed the importance of high fiber, diabetic-friendly foods for good health.

Ecologically grown vegetables. Methodism founder John Wesley stressed the importance of high fiber, diabetic-friendly foods for good health.

 

Among Wesley’s advice: Eat a light supper at least two or three hours before bed. Oprah could not have said it better.

Wesley’s counsel to scholars also may seem relevant to couch potatoes, computer addicts and people who work in cubicles.

“Those who read or write much, should learn to do it standing; otherwise it will impair their health,” Wesley said.

Other Wesley diet and exercise tips include:

  • Drink lots of water; it’s the healthiest of all drinks.
  • Avoid coffee and tea; they elevate anxiety.
  • Exercise, preferably walking, is necessary for good health.
  • Cold baths promote circulation.
  • Exercise on an empty stomach.
  • Go to bed at 9 p.m. and rise at 4 a.m. or 5 a.m.

Sue Hamilton, a 50-year-old United Methodist from rural Minooka, Ill, said she’s hearing more about health in church than at any other time in her life.

It’s the perfect place to stress wellness, she says. “The Bible says our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit.”
