Publishers Description Isn't your desire to overeat really spiritual hunger? "I can stop in the middle of a candy bar and have no desire to eat the second half if my stomach is not calling for it." - Gwen Shamblin
"Do you eat and eat and never feel full? Rise above the magnetic pull of the refrigerator and turn to the bounty offered to thousands who have embraced a liberating weight-reduction program in churches across America. "The Weigh Down Diet" gives new hope to millions who have failed on conventional diets and guides readers to the richer satisfaction that comes not from food, but from faith. "Gwen Shamblin's "The Weigh Down Diet "is a groundbreaking approach to weight loss. People who have known no end to their hunger and who have no control over their late-night binges have learned through the Weigh Down Workshop that they can remove the irresistible desire for food. This is not a diet like others, because it is not food-focused. It contains chapters such as "It's Not Genetics or Your Mother's Fault," "I Feel Hungry All the Time," and "How to Eat Potato Chips and Chocolate." So, as you can see, here is a very different approach to weight loss. "Weigh Down" gives back hope to dieters who will learn that God did not put chocolate or lasagna on Earth to torture us - but rather for our enjoyment

Reviews - What do customers think about Weigh Down Diet?
the best tool to permanently lose weight Mar 18, 2007
If you want to lose weight and keep it off, read this book!
This is about obeying God and staying within the boundaries of hunger. Waiting for your body to signal you that you are really hungry (not just head hunger--but stomach hunger, a growl from your stomach) and stoping eating when you are satisfied.
This is not about making the food obey you. It is about you listening to your body and its signals, hunger and what kinds of foods to eat.
Weigh Down Diet at HOme Jan 15, 2007
I found this book very good for a person trying to loose weight without having to buy special foods, or having to do a lot of excersises.
Helped me so much and bought it for others Jan 8, 2007
This book is filled with scripture. I think some of her doctrinal issues are bit off, but holding to the main principles and the scriptures in this book are what really helped me to lose the weight, not to be a prisoner to the emotional attachment I had to food. She lays it out straight to not be a victim of circumstance and let it be an excuse for overeating, but to forget what is behind and strain toward what is ahead(a very biblical principle Philippians 3:13). I was formerly an addict to alcohol and cigarettes (been clean for 10 years now), but after I had given up those idols to numb me out when I didn't want to deal with life, I went to food. Over the December holidays and beginning of January, I've lost 6 lbs and I don't feel guilty about my eating anymore. What I plan to do is copy out the scriptures from the book to keep me motivated,...so that my focus is on God and not Gwen.
Poor Gwen Buys Own Hype. Dec 25, 2006
While the basic tenet of this book is Biblically relevant and helpful, Shamblin's subsequent books are heresey upon heresey. Her theology is of her own making and she seems to have violated her own teaching...worshiping food no longer but now worships herself.
Appetite control book Jul 22, 2006
This book is all about controlling your appetite. Stop eating when you are full. This book is written from a Christian perspective with also recommends prayer and diet as part of your spriritual life. The author recommends eating only the best part of your meal and leave what you do not want on your plate. The most important principle of all this book teaches is STOP EATING WHEN YOU ARE FULL. This one principle alone boils down what has caused our obesity epedemic in this country, not knowing what it feels like to be full. The author teaches you what hunger feels like and how to use it to guide you eating. This is a huge part of the weight loss puzzle, I would also recommend the following that taught me how to lose 60 pounds and keep it off: 1). Mastering the Zone (Learn how much Protein and Carbs your body needs) 2). Super Foods Rx (Learn what foods give you the most nutrition for calories consumed) 3).The Real Age Diet (Learn how to eat to make yourself younger) 4). High blood pressure solution (Learn how to much sodium in your diet causes high blood pressure)
