Over at The Blazing Center, Stephen Altrogge wrote an extraordinary piece on how we can unintentionally allow fad diets to become a mark of our spirituality. This is something that I have noticed ever since the Atkins Diet was popular at the end of my college days. I’m sure the issue existed well before Atkins, but I was simply unaware until then. The funny thing is, as Altrogge points out, we used to put just about anything in our mouths! I would only add that in the days of real butter, lard, and other unhip ingredients people were still in much better shape than we are today with the low card, organic, alternative oil movement. This suggests perhaps that the issue we have is not our diet, but slothfulness; and this is something which scripture warns against in both the Old and New Testaments.
