Faith Activity Nutrition (FAN)

This post was contributed by Cindy Walden to spread the word about FAN, a faith-based program that is inspiring churches to create healthier communities. 

Moderation in All Things:
Pacing Ourselves for Lasting Health Rewards

Faith Activity Nutrition

We set resolutions to be more active, eat better and feel better. We often want to change all at once. But, if we fail to meet expectations that we set for ourselves in haste, we may give up too easily.  

The FAN program was created with that in mind. It reminds us that moderation is key! God wants us to be faithful, diligent and healthy servants.

We can all start somewhere. Whether it's gardening, walking or jogging; all activity gains health benefits. Be active at a level that is possible and enjoyable, and soon you will find that you can do more.

The plans of the diligent lead surely to plenty, but those of everyone who is hasty, surely to poverty.
— Proverbs 21:5
