Bible Based Weight Loss Programs

By Edited Aug 25, 2016 0 0

Having a tough time deciding which of the Bible based weight loss programs is for you? Well below you will find summaries of some of the most popular Bible based weight loss programs available today. You will find out the price, time frame, and other information to help you in deciding  which program is best for you.

Bible Based Weight Loss Programs: The Lord’s Table
The Lord’s Table is a weight loss Bible study designed by Mike Cleveland. This is one of those bible based weight loss programs that has more of an emphasis on Jesus than on food. The Lord’s Table teaches that there is nothing wrong with any food that you may choose to eat. But if you are eating physical food to fill a spiritual hunger then you will never be satisfied, which leads to overeating.

The course is 60 days long and is available for free online at SettingCaptivesFree.com. Not only is the entire program free, you are even assigned a mentor who will help you become successful. You can read more about this christian weight loss Bible study here.

Bible Based Weight Loss Programs: Prism Weight Loss Program
With the Prism weight loss program you are taught biblical principles that aid in weight loss. But the true premise of Prism is that you need to have a healthy understanding of the “true you” in order to lose weight and keep it off permanently. The course is designed to help you get there.

This is one of those Bible based weight loss programs that recommended that you join a support group in order to get the most out of Prism. The complete program is 24 weeks long but is broken up into four 6 week programs. But each phase is optional. At the time of this writing the first phase is $80 if you purchase the program online, and each additional phase is $60. Those costs include all of the books that you need for that particular phase. All of the course materials are available at PWLP.com.

Prism is one of those Bible based weight loss programs that does have certain food restrictions for each phase.

Bible Based Weight Loss Programs: The Weigh Down Diet
Despite it’s title, the Weigh Down Diet - by Gwendolyn Shamblin - is not really supposed to be considered a diet at all. This is one of several Bible based weight loss programs that says that there is nothing wrong with any food that you may choose to eat. Instead, the true issue is your dependence on food instead of depending on God for true fulfillment.

You can take the course online at WeighDown.com for under $150 and you have 8 weeks to complete it. You can also join a local class, which costs about the same as the online one. However, just like several other Bible based weight loss programs, you can just purchase the book and go through the course that way. Doing it that way only cost about 1/10th of the price of a class.

I have tried a couple of Bible based weight loss programs. Here is my personal experience with the Weigh Down Diet plan.

Bible Based Weight Loss Programs: First Place 4 Health
Most Bible based weight loss programs focus mainly on losing weight. But First Place 4 Health takes a christian approach to attaining and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. So the emphasis is not only on food, but also on exercising and living well.

In order to go through the program you will need to join a group and purchase a member’s kit which retails at $99.99; and, you will also need a bible study. There are several studies in the course that range in price from $14.99 to $19.99. When you sign up for the course your group leader will let you know which study you need to purchase. Just like some of the other Bible based weight loss programs mentioned, there is a book by the same title instead. However, it is more of an overview of the course and does not include the majority of the eating plans and a lot of the strategies covered in the program.

This program does specific diet plans for you to follow. You are given menus and recipe plans that you should follow throughout the duration of the course.

Bible Based Weight Loss Programs: Weight Loss God’s Way
Psychotherapist Dr. Frank B. Smoot is the author of the ebook Weight Loss God’s Way. The book takes you through an 8  week program that helps you to understand that the problem isn’t what you put on your plate, but rather what’s in your mind regarding food. According to WeightLossGodsWay.com, the program is based on both science and scripture. The program teaches you how to renew your mind regarding food so that you can be freed from obesity.

Currently the program is available on the website or on Amazon as a Kindle download for a little under $40.00. Since Dr. Smoot does not believe that food is the real issue there are no specific do’s and don’ts when it comes to what you can eat. The main issue is renewing your mind regarding food so that you are not tempted to overeat.

Carefully Consider the Different Bible Based Weight Loss Programs Before Choosing One
There is a lot to consider when trying to wade through all of the Bible based weight loss programs out there and find one that is right for you. It is a good idea to check out the websites of all of the plans. Also, consider your budget and what you are willing to spend. And most importantly, pray and ask God to help you find the plan that will be the most beneficial for you.
