Is there a Catholic prayer to lose weight?

Here’s the Catholic prayer for weight loss that worked for me.

It still works.

Here’s the plain text of “The Get Hungry Prayer” we use in Filled with Good: Theology of the Body for Food Addicts.

Mary, gentle mother, 
you who have known nothing but total communion 
with the God of our beginning, 
our middle, 
and our end, 
we ask you to take us under your mantle. 
We pray the words you said to all of us
 through St. Luke the Evangelist: 

The hungry he has filled with good things. 

Mary, teach us how to be hungry 
as you knew how to be, 
so that we may be filled, 
as you are, with good things.
 In your precious son’s holy name, we pray.

Amen
