I understand. While we're on the topic I'll venture a couple of comments, one philosophical, one practical:
(1) I've never gotten the Christian's "hang on 'til heaven" mindset. At the same time, I've never gotten the non-Christian's argument that focusing on the afterlife saps motivation for excelling on this plain of existence. I believe the opposite is the case.
(2) Ironically, I don't see anything about the connection between food and longevity in the Bible. And yes, I do bring it up if a food-obsessed client of mine identifies themselves as a Bible-believer. Otherwise, I don't go preaching.
That's all I'm going to say on the topic.
