It is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body and there is a spiritual body (1 Corinthians 15:44).
There is much confusion today in the area of ideal weight levels.
The variety of body types and circumstances, including childbirth and discipline to control appetite, need to be considered. The body's energy system works very effectively with carbohydrate consumption. Fruits and vegetables burn very well in a clean machine. A stressed pancreas from refined sugar, low thyroid function antagonized by chlorine, and an over-worked adrenal gland fuel pump from too many activities and personal stress, creates an imbalance resulting in more refined sugar cravings.
Refined food depletes cortisol, a hormone from the adrenals, which is required to shut off insulin when protein in the diet is low. When insulin stays elevated, your extra carbs are converted to fat around the belly in males and buttocks in females. Over time, with a breakdown of adrenal and pancreas function, exhaustion occurs. Once exhausted, the body no longer burns carbs effectively and therefore cannot provide fuel for the body. At that point, your body begins to rob muscle of nutrients. Arms begin to breakdown first resulting in skinny arms and legs. You end up with a "Humpty Dumpty" physique. It is best to then minimize refined carbs and sweet fruits and focus on more protein. Build up your natural body to maintain an A-1 spiritual body.
