The Foundation

It starts with that little verse up there in the First Fruits Living Ministries logo…For in HIM we live and move and exist (Acts 17:28).  We are made in His image. He knows us better than we know ourselves. He cares for us more than we care for ourselves. He is not far from any one of us. He has His eye upon us at all times. The continuance of our lives is owed to Him. We cannot stir a hand, move a foot, or say a word without considering Him, as we are fearfully and wonderfully made by Him. HE is the foundation of Fueled & Fit…for GOD.  IF we can keep within us this mindset and focus…that it’s with Him and for Him that we keep ourselves healthy and fit, we are halfway to the finish line already!

The Framework
Our health is a package deal.  Just eating right won’t produce the healthy results and goals we all wish to attain. We’ve also got to move!! Of course, all that moving isn’t enough to keep you out of the doctor’s office if your menu choices tend to include donuts, burgers, and fries!  You have to include both in your health program!  Fueled & Fit equips you to both eat right AND exercise!

Fueled for GOD is the nutritional component of our program and Fit for GOD is the fitness component.  See below for more detail on both programs.


The Various Programs and “Challenges” Offered Throughout the Year




The Fueled & Fit Challenge is our “go-to” Challenge Program. It usually runs for 40 days and always begins with a “kick-off” dinner. This challenge is closely linked to the Diet Key Page, as participants choose which “Diet Level” they will follow during the 40-Day Challenge.









The Praying, Praising & Planking Challenge is one of our most beloved challenges to date! It is 21 days of doing just what the title suggests…praying, praising & planking! A three-fer! Multi-tasking at its best!!! If you’ve been in the fitness world at all, I’m sure you have heard of the many benefits of planking! In fact, when done properly, planks are one of the BEST WAYS to build strength and stability in your core.  Go to the Praying, Praising & Planking Challenge Page to read more about it!!




Why “EDGE?”
Fueled & Fit EDGE
is our newest Challenge Program. It runs for 90 days and is deemed the “EDGE” program for very specific reasons. The program is set up to give you just that—an edge—an upper hand or advantage—right at the beginning of your journey.  You immediately have ALL the tools you require, at absolutely no cost!  There is nothing to stop you from getting on the road to great health and wellness.  No excuses.  Nothing to hold you back.  This program enables you to get your ducks in a row and get a strategy set in place as soon as you hit that sign-up button! So…”the EDGE”–you have it.  All you have to do is make use of it!





The Fueled for GOD program is available for free and has various levels of participation from which you may choose. As explained above, we offer several “challenges” throughout the year OR you may simply follow the program at your own pace, by choosing one of the “Diet Levels.” For an explanation of each Diet Level, please visit the DIET LEVEL KEY PAGE.

All of the “TOOLS” on the green bar at the top of this webpage (i.e., Recipe Index, Meal Planning, Shopping List Generator, and User Menu Creation) are available and may be utilized for each Diet Level.

If you are interested in the program, you may request a copy of the downloadable materials, that are the basis for all the Diet Levels, by going to the CONTACT PAGE and requesting materials by using the “Request for Fueled for GOD Materials” form.
