If you have a question or comment regarding religion and it's related in some way to helping you with this plan, or other aspect of diet please feel free to post.
Jim, some of us here may consider that following the guidance here in regard to diet and health will aid our spiritual progress. It seems that one's faith can help one to succeed with the program and that compliance with the program can be considered part of one's spiritual discipline/growth.
The reason I wrote this is because, for some of us, nothing is more important than our faith. We would not want to simply use
our faith to lose weight but if we are gratefully, prayerfully using the advice here to become more like the One who has called us, I think we have the proper order and will be blessed!
We are spiritual beings and we are physical beings and here we can challenge like minded people to more fully reach their potential for spiritual and physical health.
Thanks for your efforts to make this a peaceful place! If people are looking for a fight...they can go to a hockey game!
