Signature Sins: Gluttony


Continuing in the series from Michael Mangis book, Signature Sins

Mangis says Gluttony is the “pursuit and overindulgence of the body appetites, especially food and drink.” He says a glutton  “seeks and becomes addicted to pleasure.”

He offers self-discipline as the antidote for gluttony but notes that we need to address the specific desire which is being pursued.  Others would use the word “disordered desire.”

Here is a link to a quiz to find out if you are overconsuming
