• Welcome to Christian Forums
  1. Welcome to Christian Forums, a forum to discuss Christianity in a friendly surrounding.

    Your voice is missing! You will need to register to be able to join in fellowship with Christians all over the world.

    We hope to see you as a part of our community soon and God Bless!

  2. The General Mental Health Forum is now a Read Only Forum. As we had two large areas making it difficult for many to find, we decided to combine the Mental Health & the Recovery sections of the forum into Mental Health & Recovery as a whole. Physical Health still remains as it's own area within the entire Recovery area.

    If you are having struggles, need support in a particular area that you aren't finding a specific recovery area forum, you may find the General Struggles forum a great place to post. Any any that is related to emotions, self-esteem, insomnia, anger, relationship dynamics due to mental health and recovery and other issues that don't fit better in another forum would be examples of topics that might go there.

    If you have spiritual issues related to a mental health and recovery issue, please use the Recovery Related Spiritual Advice forum. This forum is designed to be like Christian Advice, only for recovery type of issues. Recovery being like a family in many ways, allows us to support one another together. May you be blessed today and each day.

  3. The forums in the Christian Congregations category are now open only to Christian members. Please review our current Faith Groups list for information on which faith groups are considered to be Christian faiths. Christian members please remember to read the Statement of Purpose threads for each forum within Christian Congregations before posting in the forum.
  4. Please note there is a new rule regarding the posting of videos. It reads, "Post a summary of the videos you post . An exception can be made for music videos.". Unless you are simply sharing music, please post a summary, or the gist, of the video you wish to share.
  5. There have been some changes in the Life Stages section involving the following forums: Roaring 20s, Terrific Thirties, Fabulous Forties, and Golden Eagles. They are changed to Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, and Golden Eagles will have a slight change.
  6. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.

    I am going to stop eating snacks because I am trying to maintain my weight. This will not be easy for me. I will have tea or coffee instead of snacks. Please pray I am able to continue with not eating snacks and just having tea or coffee when I am hungry.

    Thank you so much Scotty :) I am having a cup of coffee right now to cut my appetite. That is wonderful that you have had success and that the weight is just falling off. That is wonderful. I have had weight gain because of the medication I am on. It has caused me to have a lot of weight gain. I have dieted and have lost some weight but am seeking to loose more.

    I think your approach is a bad one. Sometimes snacks are necessary, and I don't think caffeine is a substitute for food. I maintain my weight and my first suggestion to anyone is: Stay away from sweets. They provide no nutritional benefit. And keep your fat intake moderate.

    I see nothing wrong with decaf, though I have no desire for it myself.

    Decaf is the only kind that I like. I can not handle caffeine.

    Tea is good too. I will try to mostly drink tea because I think it is healthier.

    I won't even eat chocolate (because it has caffeine), which helps me avoid sweets.

    I will pray that you are good steward of your body, are kind to yourself psychologically if you have cravings for snacks at times and exercise that compassion well you simply don't engage in overeating. For some people they can get by on three solid meals a day or less, others need snacks at times. Having a small snack if you are hungry is not the end of the world. I will pray that you are able to use wisdom with your diet, and do consider snacks for your physical and psychological state if need be, there are ways to maintain and even lose weight well eating snacks so I am simply saying.
