This is just my thought, but there is some evidence to back this.
But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. 2 Corinthians 11:3 KJV
Paul writes about how the gospel is simple, easy and it’s the enemy that makes it hard, complicated.
“For God is not a God of confusion but of peace.” 1 Corinthians 14:33e

What does this have to do with weight loss?
The majority of my time is spent simplifying things for my clients.
They (like I used to be) are so resistant to letting go and embracing the simpler way!
But, really ponder on this question… How can simple living be a benefit?
Believe me. If you sit down and really think this out, you’ll come up with a whole LIST of benefits. (I HIGHLY encourage you to do this exercise and see them! Don't just take my word for it.)
They’ll distill down to this…
What if you created less stress and overwhelm in your life?
What would that mean to you and your family?
What could you do that you aren’t doing now?
What would that mean for God’s kingdom?

There are MANY more for your weight loss and your life, but these can get you started.
Let me be very clear: DO NOT IMPLEMENT THESE ALL AT ONCE.
That defeats the purpose of simplicity.
Love yourself to show yourself grace and take the intentional time to simplify your life.
