Is this a form of gluttony?


Would long distance running (10-13 miles) just to be able to eat more without gaining weight sinful/a form of gluttony?

Of course I like to run to experience God’s nature and for the endorphin release, but sometimes the food part is what motivates me to continue running.


No. Scruples


I don’t think this is scruples necessarily, but given your earlier thread about eating disorders it’s definitely not something healthy. You should speak to your doctor about this.
