Help I hate the way my body looks.
Sound familiar? Like many women and men, perhaps you have tried virtually every wtight-loss plan that exists only to give up in disappointment and despair. Have you faithfully counted fat grams and calories? Have you subjected yourself, week after week, to the humiliation of hearing what your current weight should be compared to what it is?

More importantly, they have maintained that weight with a new and incomparable peace with themselves and with the One who designed them. "Thin Within" makes it possible to:

Reviews - What do customers think about Thin Within: A Grace-oriented Approach to Lasting Weight Loss?
The NO-diet diet. Learning to lean on the One who is stronger than all of us. Mar 8, 2007
A book built on learning how to lean on God for change, this has "hope" written all over it! I have a compulsive eating disorder and this provided to only tools that worked! For anyone who has gone through the Atkins, cabbage soup, vegetarian, vegan, counting calories, watching fat.... need I go on? For those who say "I'll stay on this diet until I reach where I want to be. Then I'll just be more careful as I go back to what I ate before." This is a book that will make you WANT to change your eating habits because you don't HAVE to give up what you love! It's not a pill, it's not a program, you don't pay hundreds of dollars or go to meetings. You just lean on God and follow His promoting. This book teaches you how to do that. WE CAN'T DO IT, but HE can!
ThinWithin Aug 28, 2006
ThinWithin is a positive approach to eating and living a Christ-centered life. It helps uncover specific areas where a person might need to address to help them grow spiritually and lose weight at the same time. I really liked this book so much I am taking it a step further and working through the ThinWithin program with a friend. I recommend this book to anyone who would like to stop overeating by learning how to eat anything you want when you are hungry, not just certain food groups, and not depriving yourself.
Never Diet Again! Jun 12, 2006
After trying for 7 years to release my "baby weight" (weight gained during pregnancy), God led me to find THIN WITHIN. And, within 6 months, I'd released 25 lbs!
I love the freedom of THIN WITHIN! No food is "good" or "bad" or "forbidden". I can eat whatever I like, so long as I stay within the boundaries of "hunger" and "fullness" (don't eat until my stomach is empty, then stop before I've stuffed myself).
If you don't want the religious bit, try Jane R. Hirschmann's "Overcoming Overeating". Same premise without the Christianity.
But, it's much more freeing to know a God who will forgive you if you go overboard. You just get up, push "reset" and start again because "His mercies are new every morning"! (Lamentations 3:23)
Excellent book! Highly recommended!
Finally, FREEDOM! May 22, 2006
I am a yoga teacher/personal trainer so I'm in the business of helping people become fit and healthy. Even though I've had all the best diet and exercise advice at my disposal, and I LIKE to eat good food, and I exercise all the time, I still have struggled with my weight (mostly because of emotional eating). It was frustrating that I couldn't figure out why my clients weren't having long term success, even when I thought I was giving them all the help I possibly could. This was the missing piece of the puzzle!!! I wish I could go back and give this book to all my former clients. PLEASE buy this book, it has the answer for you. Pure Freedom! Beautiful Simplicity! Also, I think the majority of non-christians are not going to be offended by it's message.
Good book, support groups helpful! Feb 25, 2006
I read both this and Thin Again. While I liked ThinWithin I could not keep up with the "program" on my own. After visiting their website I found a support group close to my house. We are now in week 4 of 12 and it has been an amazing 4 weeks! I would reccomend joining or starting up a group if you need more help. I plan on starting one at my chruch once I finish this 12 weeks. The materials they use (consisting of a weekly lesson and daily homeworks - all doable) are such a help - and makes me have devotional time with God everyday. I feel myself changing inside and out.
