To one extreme we can become gluttons. That’s not good as we read here:
We are to be good stewards of everything and most certainly our bodies.
Yet to the other extreme, it can be a form of idolatry as some people worship their bodies which are all going to grow old and die regardless.
We all should find a good balance between the physical and spiritual loves. A healthy lifestyle is certainly important but it should distant second to a healthy sanctification as one lasts for about a 100 years and the other for infinity.

Yet all work and no play, makes for a very dull life. Harmony, oh Lord may You help each of us have harmonic balance.
