I wouldn't be asking for this if it wasn't health related and rather urgently needed. I'm currently on a really strict diet and have been for this past week. It's been really difficult to discipline myself and I really need to lose this weight. Please pray.

Greetings in that Divine and Most Precious Name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

Of course we will pray for you Smiley

Just a note, food is a primal drug, it is very hard to deal with solely on our own when things go wrong.  The Fathers instituted fasting in the Church precisely for this reason, to through experience and synergetic cooperation with the Holy Spirit we may learn self-control and discipline.  That being said, perhaps you should try the Fasting food diet which the Fathers have prescribed for two-thousand years, it is beneficial both to the physical and spiritual health Wink

stay blessed,

It's a five hundred calorie per day HcG diet so it's pretty similar to fasting (near vegetarian), but I still have to eat a certain amount of meat. Then in 40 days, I spend two days eating anything at all every half hour to load back up on brown fat. Then the cycle begins anew.

So, I've got no idea how a priest would react, but this is doctor supervised.


(The idea is that the HcG makes the thyroid think you're pregnant so it locks down your brown (essential) fat reserves, which is normally what the body burns first. It also prevents your body from burning muscle, so it burns your white fat directly.)

I can tell I've lost a couple of pounds already.

May the Lord give you the grace you may need at this time, and bless you with good health.

HCG diet? I've been urging a certain someone in my life to not to do it, but maybe I need to reconsider.

One of my goals this year is to eat healthier, I have alot of food addictions that I battle and succumb to daily.

Please include me in your prayers as well.

Yeah, you really need doctor supervision. "Homeopathic" HCG purchased online is either 1. Snake oil that's banned by the FDA or 2. Animal HCG that'll kill ya.

I'll be sure to pray too.

22 pounds -- that's amazing!

The prayer of a just man (and your own willpower) is clearly of much avail.

Well, I went to another doctor today for my knee and he told me the medical evidence regarding the HcG is not all that conclusive, so I'm beginning to wonder if my weight loss has other reasons behind it. I could still send it to you if you want though.

Volnutt, I didn't follow this diet per se when I was young, but did something very similar and lost up to two pounds a day.  I didn't eat the normal diet long enough to gain weight and didn't eat the 'diet' long enough to harm my metabolism . . . it was my favorite way to drop weight through out my teens and twenties.
