Weigh Down continues to endorse moderation in one’s consumption of food or substance. One can overdose on or overeat raw carrots and become ill or suffer ill side effects from even this practice. Because our goal is to imitate Thin Eaters, you will find that Thin Eaters naturally do not overindulge in any food or beverage in order to avoid harming God’s holy temple, the body. Weigh Down will continue to emphasize the careful handling of the human body with a deep respect for the sensitivity to signals that God puts in the body. As with any new lifestyle change, it is best to know your current health status and make yourself aware of how this new lifestyle choice will impact your health. We will not stop hearing of health warnings and medical claims because the FDA requires the food and drug industries to write down any and all claims, whether scientifically possible or not. One such example among the thousands is the warning against consuming colas that contain phosphoric acid. But only a small fraction of the phosphate in the American diet comes from soft drinks; most comes from meat and dairy products, as phosphoric acid is found naturally in meats, poultry, legumes, eggs, dairy products, etc. It is our job as Christians to pray and seek wise counsel on the use of any substance before resorting to fears or ill-informed conclusions.
