If you read a lot in the health food arena, you will soon learn that some people are passionate about their way of eating—so much so that if you aren’t one of them, you are just ignorant or worse.
We are sticking to a plan. Now you can stick to any plan you want. It doesn’t hurt my feelings at all if you have a different plan. In fact, I know you have a different plan or maybe no plan. Now if you have a better plan then more power to you. The thing I want to see is that you are sticking to a plan, that is of course if you need to lose weight. Although on hearing that in my head, I think it’s good to have a plan for your good health regardless if you need to lose weight.
During Paul’s day, there were the same arguments about food. They made eating a religious point. Some said you can’t eat meat. Some couldn’t drink wine. Some ate only vegetables like Daniel. They all add their ideas about how God wanted them to eat.
“1 Now accept the one who is weak in faith, but not for the purpose of passing judgment on his opinions. 2 One person has faith that he may eat all things, but he who is weak eats vegetables only. 3 The one who eats is not to regard with contempt the one who does not eat, and the one who does not eat is not to judge the one who eats, for God has accepted him” Romans 14:1-3 (NASB).
Paul calls these things “opinions.” He calls people who have problems with what they should eat in religious terms – weak in faith. We need to see the difference between opinions and God’s Word on the matter. Later in this passage Paul reminds us that, “For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost” Romans 14:17.
So don’t disparage someone’s plan or lack of a plan. Stick to yours and just smile. It’s all by grace anyway.
