Gluttony Is Not Merely Overeating

Gluttony is not merely overeating, eating unhealthily, or eating when you are not hungry, although all of those are signs of gluttony. Deliverance from Gluttony may be needed.

The Obesity Epidemic

More than 2 in 3 adults are considered to be overweight or have obesity in the United States. In other words, being overweight or obese is the new normal for Americans. Each one of these people carries an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, musculoskeletal disorders (e.g., arthritis and low back pain), cancer, type 2 diabetes, and depression. 

Keto is one of the most effective ways to lose weight rapidly and keep the fat off for good. The keto diet is a low carb and high fat diet that is similar to the Atkins diet – except there are no complicated phases to work through, making it a little easier to follow, especially for diet beginners.

The plan is said to cause fast weight loss while allowing dieters to remain satisfied, thanks to the large amount of fat included.

Over 20 scientific studies have shown this diet results in high levels of weight loss.

 Obsessive Compulsive Cycle

Obsessive Compulsive Cycle

I was completely swept along with my own compulsion.

The Obsessive Compulsive Cycle: Damn Unwanted Thoughts!

Since the relief it brings is of limited duration, the compulsion and obsession is a gesture that has to be repeated and thus becomes a habit. The cycle is as follows:

1. The doubt in which the obsession is rooted persists.
2. The threat of danger arises again in one’s mind.
3. The sense of discomfort recurs.
4. The compulsion has to be repeated to neutralize the danger.

About 1 in 50 people, that’s over 5 million Americans and 500,000 Canadians, have developed obsessive-compulsive disorders (OCD). Recent research shows that some children may even develop the illness as early as their preschool years… and that a full one-third of current adult OCD cases began in childhood. Some other researchers believe OCD may be hereditary.

What is a compulsion?

In obsessive-compulsive disorders (OCD), the action that results directly from obsessive thinking is a compulsion, affected people to make specific gestures to suppress the anxious thinking/condition which is plaguing them.

The goal of a compulsion is to eliminate the threat posed by an obsession. Compulsive actions provide temporary relief from the distress, discomfort or disgust caused by an obsession. It can cause tremendous anxiety for those who have it.

Untitled-7You are constantly battling yourself. Just as you can’t run away from your hips, you can’t get rid of your thoughts. Thought control and thought suppression don’t work. Worse—they make you feel more hopeless. Try not to think of polar bears for the next thirty minutes. Oops. There’s another polar bear. It won’t work.
