Ideal Body Weight

 
God designed all of us along the same principles, but each body is quite unique. What is the ideal body weight for one person is not the ideal body weight for another. He designed our systems so efficiently that when you eat according to hunger and fullness, your body will naturally go to a slender size and remain there. Your body knows when its reserves have all been used up, and your hunger sensation either will come more often or will require more food before being satisfied. It is important not to focus on a specific weight. It is also important not to repeatedly skip hunger signs. Ignoring the signal that your body needs to eat is as disobedient as overeating. It can lead to anorexia and trying to maintain a body weight that is too thin and not healthy. As long as you are obedient to hunger and fullness, your body will reach and maintain the weight that God intends for you.
