I have had the pleasure of working with the parish health center in the parish I currently serve as a pastor, as well as in other parishes.
The parish health center is a ministry that is based on the idea that our bodies are temples that are capable of sustaining life. By taking care of ourselves through good nutrition, exercise, and good lifestyle choices, we can grow into healthy, vibrant, and spiritual bodies. One way to do that is through a healthy diet. We have been involved in a number of weight loss programs that have gained a lot of traction in the past year.
The latest one that caught my eye is this one, which is a very well-done weight loss program. It is very comprehensive and has a goal to lose at least 10 lbs.
What I found interesting is that many of the diet programs that I’ve seen don’t include foods like fruits and vegetables or whole grains. Most offer little to no exercise as a side benefit. For example, the program I saw offered the weight loss as a result of a cleanse, but it didn’t include any type of exercise. And in a positive step, it also didn’t talk about food as being a negative.
This is a positive step because I find it ironic that a weight loss program that claims to help people lose weight for health reasons, would include no exercise. It might just be a marketing gimmick, but I would be willing to bet that many of these programs have no idea of what they are doing.
And this is where the positive step is a little bittersweet for me. I am a huge proponent of exercise. And I have no problem with people losing weight for whatever reason. But when I look at a program that is all about losing a few pounds, but doesn’t offer any type of exercise, I am not impressed.
I am not interested in the exercise programs, but I am more interested in the social aspects of the program.
The program’s main purpose is to get some sort of a “dumb” attitude. It is a great way to get a better sense of how much you are talking about yourself in a specific social setting. A lot of the ads on the web are on a few different websites. The ads are on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. I have no problem with the Facebook ads, but sometimes they are just the most basic of ads.
The Facebook ads can be very basic, but they can also be very useful. The people who put those ads on your page are trying to get you to join their group. By joining their group, they get to see your face everywhere on the Internet. They are making a bunch of money selling this information, and so they want you to join their group. This is a very important part of the Facebook experience.
