Brief guidelines for an appropriate Nutritional Adjustment

Diet = [W.O.W.] a dramatic change in what you eat and how much you eat; basic
deprivation of the things you enjoy to force yourself into a common mold.

Nutritional Adjustment = [W.O.W.] simple modification of current dietary habits in an
effort to slowly improve health and arrive at the being you are purposed for.

“All things done in excess are bad; most things done in moderation are good”

In the case of a diet, you place your body under extreme stress as you try to tell it that it should look a certain way “just because”. You have provided not explanation, education, or warning of what is about to occur. Your body does not like being treated in this manner and will eventually rebel. You may get away with one, two, three, or maybe even four weeks of this harsh treatment, but, in an extremely weakened state as you are now in, your willpower will fail and you will return to the same eating habits as before. Maybe even a binge episode. However, in terms of a nutritional adjustment, you want to gradually change your eating habits. Teach your body why it needs or doesn’t need certain things. All things are still permissible, but not necessarily the best choice for a particular time (1 Corinthians 6:12). Once your body understands your goals and why you desire those goals, it will line up and you will see and experience the changes you have yearned for (the spirit bringing the flesh into submission).
Physical fitness is a process, there are no short cuts. It is a way of life – a discipline. The psychological ramifications of making any drastic change may potentially result in “taking two steps back rather than one step forward.” A long-term commitment to change a habit is always more beneficial than a short-term commitment to hide a habit.

“The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).” John 10:10
