Weight Loss Bible Studies
Following are two weight loss Bible studies you can use alongside the app and also the app in book form if you’d rather use it as a book. I’ve described the differences between the three books below.
Taste for Truth: A 30 Day Weight Loss Bible Study is focused on the lies that make us eat, body image, and the weight loss process. I wrote this Bible study to go along with the questions and Bible verses in I Deserve a Donut, and although you can do the study without I Deserve a Donut, it’s best if you have both books.
I Deserve a Donut (And Other Lies That Make You Eat) is a renewing of the mind resource to use in the midst of temptation and also to prepare yourself for temptation. I use it all the time, just for regular life. It is filled with 36 sets of questions and over 150 Bible verses that you can use to have conversations with God about life and food. The questions and Bible verses will help you renew your mind, taking off the lies that make you eat and putting on the truth that will set you free. This book contains the exact same information as the app.
Freedom from Emotional Eating: A Weight Loss Bible Study is more focused on emotional eating. Although there is material on boundaries and breaking free from the control of food, most of the book is devoted to learning how to let go of negative emotions. The comment I get most often with this book is that yes, it helped me with eating, but it helped me even more with letting go of my negative emotions.
Here’s a sample of the questions and Bible verses on the app:
- Emotional Eating
- Entitlement Eating
- End-of-Work Day Stress
- Good Food Eating
- Hopeless Eating
- Insecurity: Feeling Rejected Questions
- Worry Questions
