HINESVILLE, Ga., April 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Lord's Diet, a new book that promises to help readers change the world by changing their weight, is leading by example—to the tune of $1,000,000.
Dr. God, LLC (www.DrGod.com), the company behind the book, has committed to donating its first million dollars in profit to the United Nations World Food Program, where it will be used to respond to the humanitarian crisis caused by famine in South Sudan, Nigeria, Somalia, and Yemen.
According to the United Nations, over 22 million children are now suffering from extreme hunger and illness in these four countries, with an estimated 1.4 million children in extreme danger of death due to starvation this year alone.
In March, the UN released a plea for $255 million in donations to respond to immediate needs, calling the situation "the worst humanitarian crisis in decades."
Dr. God, LLC (www.DrGod.com) is helmed by an American board-certified medical doctor, psychiatrist and author who prefers to be known only as "Dr. D" in order to keep the spotlight on his public-health ventures rather than on himself. He attributes his generosity to what he calls the First Fruits Principle, which is based on a Bible verse found in Deuteronomy 26, in which God instructs the Israelites to set aside the first fruits of their harvest as an offering of thanksgiving.
Dr. D. hopes that the donation will serve to encourage others to contribute to United Nation's plea for help.
The Lord's Diet is the first release from Dr. D's newest venture, written from a perspective that imagines how God would change people's lives if He (God) were a modern-day medical doctor, focusing on lifestyle re-engineering and other everyday habits instead of old time miracles.
The company is centered around a philosophy of healing the body through a combination of gentle faith and pure science.
At this time, The Lord's Diet is available exclusively as a digital download on the Dr. God site, www.DrGod.com.
Unlike other diets, which are focused on a final goal of weight loss, The Lord's Diet guides the users towards a more global perspective on health, showing users how things they never would have thought of all actually cause their weight problems.
Dr. God, LLC is confident that, by the time the average reader finishes the book, he or she will not only have learned to positively change their weight and their body shape, but also their life and the world around them.
The company offers a challenge, encouraging readers to secretly practice the methods outlined in the book for at least 18 days before revealing to those around them that the secrets to their newfound weight-loss success are all hidden inside The Lord's Diet.
