My weight loss leader said, “Stop feeding your food.” By this, she meant to stop putting another forkful of food into a mouth that is still full of the last bite of food.
You know the old saying, “First you eat to live, and then you live to eat”? Well, it may be true but that’s no excuse for stuffing our bodies with whatever.
“Just because something is technically legal doesn’t mean that it’s spiritually appropriate. If I went around doing whatever I thought I could get by with, I’d be a slave to my whims.”
Don’t kill the messenger! I didn’t say it! (See 1 Corinthians 6: 13, 12)
Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body. All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.
God gave us the privilege of owning and living in a body. The best thing we can do is take care of it.
