    Yes, sometimes our lives can focus so much on food and our bodily wants.

    Thank you! And if the motivation is wrong it can lead to problems, including overdoing the fasting without it resulting in spiritual growth or, in fact, any result except hunger - both bodily and spiritually.

    Growing in the spirit is what St. Paul tells us is so important, too.
