The recent magazines of November 1st/8th, 2004 target obesity. While Awake! contains a 12-page-series, The Watchtower contains a QfR on "How do Christians view overeating?" (I am translating from German). The QfR is almost the same as in The Watchtower of May 1st, 1986 it also refers to it.
There is a footnote in Awake! on p. 8 that is priceless (translating again):
Dedicated Christians whose life is devoted to the holy service for God have even more reason to lose weight and to stay healthy. By means of this, they can dedicate more years of productive service to God instead of dying an premature death. (Romans 12:1).Can somebody provide the English original, please? However, now they do not even speak about everlasting life any longer but about to live as long as possible to be most productive in His service - that is going from house to house and leave magazines - before death.
