After the goose has been gobbled and the cookies consumed, Americans' thoughts turn toward their ever-expanding waistlines. 'Tis the season for diet books, especially in the Christian market. Thomas Nelson, capitalizing on the What Would Jesus Do? phenomenon, presents What Would Jesus Eat?: The Ultimate Program for Eating Well, Feeling Great, and Living Longer. Author Don Colbert, a family physician, urges readers to examine and emulate Jesus' simple diet. The nutritional information, overall, is quite sound: Colbert encourages the consumption of fish, the use of olive oil in cooking and an exercise regimen of daily walking. He discusses the ""hidden dangers"" of pork, condemns refined white flour and warns against the excessive consumption of red meat. This ""all-natural diet from biblical times"" promises readers fitness and longevity. Although it should be recalled that longevity was not exactly a hallmark of many biblical characters after the early chapters of Genesis, this is a solid addition to the Christian diet shelves.
