LISTEN: Diet, Disease, & Weight Loss, Part 10 (Overcoming the Acceptable Christian Sin of Gluttony #14 with Daniel Whyte III)

The purpose of this podcast is to share with you, from a biblical perspective, the means by which we can combat and overcome the sin of gluttony and its outcome of obesity.

Our passage from the Word of God today is Proverbs 23:20-21 which reads: “Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh: For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags.”

Now, let’s look at gluttony and its effects in the news: According to USA Today, a study published this week suggests that country folks have driven the recent global rise in obesity, contradicting the predominant thinking that links being overweight with urban living. The study’s lead author Ma-jid Ez-zati of Imperial College of London’s School of Public Health said, “The results of this massive global study overturn commonly held perceptions that more people living in cities is the main cause of the global rise in obesity. This means that we need to rethink how we tackle this global health problem.”

In this podcast, we are going through the book, The RAVE Diet and Lifestyle: The Natural Foods Diet With Meals that Heal, by Mike Anderson. He writes in Chapter 1: Diet, Disease, & Weight Loss (Part 10).
