The Second Coming of Gluttony – Chapter 59
Gluttony, the sin of excess, is making a comeback. In a world where more and more people are overweight or obese, gluttony is becoming increasingly common.
This isn’t surprising when you consider the many temptations that exist today. There are more high-calorie foods available than ever before, and we’re bombarded with messages telling us to eat them. We’re also encouraged to eat larger portions than we need, and to eat more frequently.
It’s no wonder that so many people are struggling with their weight. But while being overweight is a serious problem, it’s important to remember that gluttony is a sin, and it’s something that we should all strive to avoid.
What is Gluttony?
Gluttony is defined as an excessive desire to eat or drink. It’s often associated with overweight and obesity, but it’s important to remember that gluttony is a state of mind, not a physical condition.
People who are gluttonous often eat for reasons other than hunger. They may eat when they’re bored, sad, or anxious. They may also eat in response to stress or to celebrate. And, of course, they may eat simply because they enjoy the taste of food.
Gluttony is a serious problem because it leads to overeating and, as a result, to weight gain. Gluttony is also a form of self-indulgence, and it can be difficult to control. But if you’re struggling with your weight, it’s important to remember that you’re not alone. There are many people who are struggling with the same problem.
How to Avoid Gluttony
If you’re struggling with gluttony, there are a few things you can do to avoid it. First, try to eat only when you’re hungry. It’s easy to eat for reasons other than hunger, but if you can focus on eating only when you’re truly hungry, you’ll be less likely to overeat.
Second, try to eat slowly and mindfully. It’s easy to eat too much when you’re not paying attention to what you’re doing. But if you take your time and savor your food, you’ll be less likely to overeat.
Finally, try to avoid trigger foods. Trigger foods are those that make you want to eat more than you should. For some people, trigger foods may be high-sugar or high-fat foods. For others, they may be foods that they’re allergic to or sensitive to. If you can identify your trigger foods and avoid them, you’ll be less likely to overeat.
Gluttony is a serious problem, but it’s one that you can avoid. If you’re struggling with your weight, remember that you’re not alone. There are many people who are struggling with the same problem. And there are many resources available to help you overcome your challenges.
