Resolutions of Jonathan Edwards: #20

20. Resolved, to maintain the strictest temperance in eating and drinking.
This may sound too restrictive to a modern (or a post-modern) mind, but I think it is a good displine to watch how much I eat. I should and want to be more displined in this way, not to become simply a thinner and healthier person, but to be more self-controlled, and sober-minded.
