Are you like the woman that only ate pizza for 31 years?

Woman eats only margherita pizza for 31 years

A woman who has eaten only cheese and tomato pizza for 31 years has been told she could die unless she quits her bizarre dining habit.

Claire Simmons, 33, gags if she puts anything but a plain pizza slice in her mouth. She also shakes the moment she is presented with any other type of food. Now doctors have warned that her bizarre condition - known as Selective Eating Disorder - is increasing her risk of a stroke or heart attack in later life.

Physical and spiritual health

To stay healthy, experts recommend a varied diet, including five daily portions of fruit and vegetables. But Claire said: "I'm actually scared of fruit and veg. I get so angry when people think I'm being faddy - this is a real medical condition."

When it comes to looking after your physical body, a varied diet is the way to go. But when it comes to your spiritual body, we should be like Claire, and only be able to stomach the one true God; Jesus.

Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst." John 6:35

Jesus is all our spiritual bodies need. He alone can bring us back to God. He alone died for our sins. He alone is the God/man. He alone can satisfy.

And we should 'gag', shake and be scared of anything or anyone else who claims the match the claims of Jesus.

Are you sticking to your spiritual diet or are you tempted to binge on other things?
