A Higher Power To Lower Your Weight

Filed under: Low-carb Tips — @ April 26, 2006

People often ask me how my faith in God helped me during my experience losing close to 200 pounds on the low-carb lifestyle.

As a Christian I believe that God is a part of EVERY area of my life, including my weight. If I give Him complete control of that, then He is faithful to give me the desires of my heart as long as I remain obedient to Him.

bq. Unfortunately, some of us Christians can be rather stubborn when it comes to this because we try to maintain control over the “little” parts of our life such as our weight. But God said He wants EVERY area of our life so we really should obey Him and let Him help us with weight loss, too.

Whether you believe in God or not, there’s certainly no denying that people who have faith have some advantage over those who do not when it comes to dealing with the emotional and spiritual pain that comes with being overweight or obese.

bq. Being fat is quite a traumatic thing for many people because it brings on the intense ridicule and scorn of people who may or may not know just how hurtful they are being. The scars from these experiences can be very deep-rooted and cause very real pain to linger on for many years and many times drawing these people into serious depression, lonliness and even suicidal.
