Bellies Are Gods To Some People

Philippians 3:19 King James Version (KJV)

19 Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)

” … Whose God is their belly …..”

Being obese because I love food a little too much (I am praying for forgiveness), I have decided to try a new protein-based milkshake.

For the time being, I will drink this shake twice a day — once for breakfast and once for my evening meal and I will have a nicely-proportioned, well-balanced meal (Heavy on vegetables) for the Noon-time meal.

This might help me and it might not.

Please understand that I am not recommending that anybody else use this drink. I am sharing this information for the sake of friends who might find it interesting but I repeat, I am not recommending this to anybody else besides myself.

Here is how it shakes out. (Pun intended):

In an electric blender I am placing the following ingredients:

8 ounces lowfat milk

1 banana

1/2 cup Greek-style yogurt

1/4 block extra firm plain tofu

1 scoop whey protein powder

1 teaspoon raw unfiltered honey to sweeten.

I am setting the blender speed to “Smoothie” and letting it run (supervised of course; never unattended) for 15 to 30 seconds.

The total calorie count on this thing is somewhere in the neighborhood of 455 to 500 calories — ( a little more or a little less) —

Two of these and a decent meal at Noontime will average out at about 1,600 to 1,800 calories which should be sufficient to get my weight down safely and consistently.

The main thing about this approach is that I tire of things quickly and I might abandon this idea if it doesn’t work as good or as fast for me as I think it should.

One other thing that I need a lot of is patience. I am praying that God increase my patience.
