Everywhere I look now there seems to be a new fad diet going around and the list is always never-ending. Just recently though I came across a diet that at first I just mistook for a new fad diet but which in truth was a diet that had been around for some time. It’s one of those religious diets and relies on many things to help you through the times when you’re on your diet.
Each of these religious diets is slightly different but most have one thing in common, and that’s the power of your own belief, and a great church support group. If you’re looking into religious diets you won’t have far to look as there are many books that are proliferating the diet markets. To get information through all you need to do is ask a church member.
Around the world, religious diets can mean many things to many people. For the Hindus, their religious diets forbid them from eating meat, especially beef. In India, the cow is a sacred beast and is treated as such by all.
For the Muslims, during the month of Ramadan, they go on a strict fasting diet. They’re not allowed to eat or drink anything during the daylight hours for the whole month. Without a steadfast faith, they could not do this.
The same applies to those of the Christian faith, although it’s sad to say that any interested third party would only notice a growing number of Christian diet books, and a lagging number of actual drops in waistlines. This is not to say that we have less faith, but that our church food tables are laden more with fat-inducing foods than the healthier option foods.
I know a friend of mine gained 10 pounds within a few months after starting a regular church attendance. However, with the help of our church group and much personal prayer on her part she was able to drop those extra 10 pounds.
There is something in the religious diets but only if you believe. You need to have faith in yourself, in God, and in the power of prayer. If you read any of the books that are currently on the market you can get a good insight into what religious diets will entail for you. When you start on your religious diets remember to always have faith in yourself, and if you falter remember to always have faith in the power of prayer. Having faith in the power of God will only enhance this and make your dieting tribulations easier. Have faith all will work out well in the end.
