Most of my friends suffer from the same problem regarding extra pounds. Women tend to be overweight, especially after the birth of children. Many of her friends have not been able to return to their original body weight, despite the fitness classes and the restriction in food.
How to be and what to do if you treat food as a cult, can prayers to the Saints or conspiracies against gluttony help? Are there special words of prayer? Let's try together to understand this issue.
Gluttony as a sin of Orthodoxy
We know that among the sins that exist in the Orthodox faith, there is a sin of gluttony, it is not considered the most terrible, but the Lord condemns people who cannot pacify their womb. Many understand the dangers of over-eating, try to rectify the situation with the help of restrictions and prayers. Great help for believers are posts.
It is more difficult for those who love to eat and pays a lot of attention to this aspect of human life. Among obese people, there are those who do not understand satiety and continue to eat food immensely, until the appearance of unpleasant sensations. Such gluttons should reflect on their behavior, take the path of truth and take advantage of the numerous prayers that are designed to help cope with sin.
Numerous posts calling for culinary restrictions exist for good reason. During these periods, associated with the use of simple and low-calorie foods, the human body rests, cleans, removes toxins, harmful substances and helps the internal organs to return to normal rhythm of work. The most important moment during fasting is the introduction of man to spiritual food. With the removal of harmful substances from the body, the blood begins to better feed the brain, so it is precisely the fasting that becomes the periods of a person’s insight.
Demanding attitude to yourself, discipline and prayer will help to cope with sinful behavior and get rid of extra pounds.
How to pray to cope with gluttony and gluttony

- If a person is immoderate in food, he is considered a glutton.
- If a person does not have an internal restriction, and he cannot be saturated for a long time, continues to consume large amounts of food, it can be safely called a glutton.
And here we are talking not only about the harm to health, but also the loss of spirituality, which very quickly leads a person to immorality and lack of morality.
Here is one of the many prayers that goes to God:
"Lord, I pray Thee, Slave (s) of God, help me to get rid of gluttony. Let me calm down in my soul, and then I can accept all Your gifts, so that when I eat them my powers will strengthen, both spirit and body, so that I can to serve you for the long or short years that you have given me. Amen. "
