Publisher's 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!

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Weigh Down Diet

"Having been a former model and beauty queen, I was so ashamed of myself as I started gaining weight in my late twenties. Weigh Down Workshop and the Biblical principles taught by Gwen Shamblin have revolutionized my thinking about food. I lost 40 pounds without giving up anything I like to eat!"
-Mary Jo Runfola, former Miss Ohio

"As a physician I have watched the frustrated attempts of countless patients as they tried program after program to get the weight off. I knew that my recommendations of standard low-fat diets were inadequate because I had actually gained weight counting fat grams. Now I can’t seem to stop talking to anyone who will listen about the difference Weigh Down has made in my life. In fact, it is the only diet I recommend to my patients now."
-Yvonne Sims, M.D., OBGYN, Tennessee (lost 20 pounds)

"In many years of medicine, I had become disheartened with the diet industry. It was through this program that I found a new understanding for people dealing with eating disorders and realized that there was a new focus in ways of managing weight control."
-David Larsen, M.D., Internist, Minnesota

"There is no reason why anyone could not benefit from Weigh Down, which is less a `diet` than the Gospel applied to eating. I will not be passing on a legacy of a fat father and poor eating habits to my children who watch."
-Daniel Sather, M.D., Internist, Minnesota (lost 54 pounds)

"I quit serving a small god of food and started serving the one true God."
-Cindy Chapman, Aspire magazine, Missouri (lost 110 pounds)

"I have spent my life consumed with weight control. You need only to grow up in a large Baltimore high school as the largest kid and with a nickname like `Baby Elephant` to end up with a compulsion towards weight loss. It is truly liberating and wonderful to be able to enjoy food again (like the taste of real cheese) without guilt. This has been a spiritual revival program…a tool of ministry and discipleship."
-Richard Ryan, Minister, Indiana (lost 16 pounds)
