Gluttony is a lack of temperence. For most with a weight problem, the root cause is emotions based eating.
You don't have to be overweight to be a glutton, If your weight is normal, but you constantly gorge yourself
on every unhealthy food the flesh desires, you're eating is also out of control. Remember, God sees the heart and
the lack of discipline in your life.
Break out of unhealthy, undisciplined eating by loving, accepting, and forgiving yourself. Only you can restrain
your appetite. You must make the right choices in both food and drink.

these habits in my own strength, I receive your strength to exercise temperence and break free from excess, undisciplined
eating habits. In Jesus name!
