The Daniel Fast

by Rev. A. J. Iovine

For instance, if you want to lose weight, having a friend “walk the walk” with you is a great way to achieve a lower weight because two of you are doing it together, keeping focused on the greater good. The chances of failure are lessened because while you may want to eat a pint of ice cream, your weight loss partner does not. Thus, focus on your goal is not lost.

Was I losing weight? A little, but not enough. It was only after I spoke with a series of doctors, some of whom pointed me to Dr. Michael Greger’s website, that I was able to focus.
