Salt Lake City, UT—A shocking revelation has come out concerning Elder Dale Renlund of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. According to sources, the junior apostle has not eaten a morsel of food since his call to the quorum in 2015. While disturbing, this does shed light on his previously inexplicable weight loss.

The truth behind the apostle’s weight loss was discovered after LDS church leaders filed a missing persons report for half of Elder Renlund. Police say they learned about the six-year-long fast after interviewing Renlund about his missing girth.

Now that the mystery has been solved, Elder Renlund has announced that he is currently writing a book series about weight loss with titles such as Fast Fitness, The Righteous Diet, and I Fasted Longer Than Jesus!
