More research is needed to see if these dramatic calorie-cutting benefits help humans but it is likely, ( I believe) since numerous studies that I have read confirm that there are many positive health benefits of losing weight. For one, people with high blood pressure can sometimes go off their medication after losing weight.
Being of Italian descent, I love food, as most Italians do and so it's a struggle for me to lose weight, especially since I love pasta, bread and pizza. I also love to cook and have mastered many Italian dishes, since as I've mentioned before, I come from a long line of fantastic cooks. I've always loved cake and cookies, though I now try to substitute healthier snacks. When you love food, it's difficult to lose weight but I am trying.
So what does this have to do with religion, because this is a religion blog, after all. Well, obviously, the longer we live, the more experience we'll have to share and wisdom is good when you are on a spiritual journey, as I am. I'm hoping (and praying) that I'll be able to share my experiences, as I grow older through my writing. I need good health to do that, as we all do. So I'm going to try to limit my calorie intake and exercise more, and if you want to live a long and healthy life, it's good advice for all.
