Another diet? Or healing?

Do you feel you need to lose weight? Let's face it, you don't need another offer of a quick fix. Pick up almost any newspaper or magazine, and you'll find promises of instant gratification—instant success, instant glamour, instant riches. Little is ever voiced about the deeper needs that have to be cared for if we are to experience really permanent change for the better. But that doesn't mean that obesity can't be completely healed. What is called for is a spiritual transformation, the regeneration that comes with the effort to live a more Christly life. Spiritual regeneration is basic to Christian Science healing.

Christian Science doesn't offer a quick-fix approach to weight loss or to any other problem. But what it does offer is the Christian redemption of individual consciousness in the way taught and illustrated by Christ Jesus, which brings healing to every aspect of human experience, including unnatural or unhealthy bodily weight.
