They say it takes 21 days to develop a habit. But we all know how hard it is to make through those first 21 days. "Taste for Truth" will help you get through those first few weeks when you'd like nothing better than to give up. "Taste for Truth" offers 30 days of Bible study and hands-on renewing of the mind help. You'll be taking off the lies that make you overeat and putting on the truth that will make you actually "want" to eat with control. "Taste for Truth" is a companion Bible study to "I Deserve a Donut (And Other Lies That Make You Eat)."
When you're in a tempting situation, all you can think of is the food. How good it looks. How good it smells. How good it will taste. What you need is a way to break the hold food has on you. I Deserve a Donut will help. It is a hands-on, use-it-in-the-thick-of-the-battle book that will help you renew your mind right when you need it. It's filled with 150+ Bible verses, 37 sets of questions, and 20 sets of tips-all specifically chosen to help you take off the lies that make you eat and put on the truth that will set you free. As you renew your mind, you'll notice your desires changing. You'll actually "want" to follow your boundaries. And that will make it easier to say no to the donut. If you'd like a companion Bible study to this book, check out "Taste for Truth: A 30 Day Weight Loss Bible Study," also by Barb Raveling. Both books can be used alongside any healthy weight loss program.
This 8-week Bible study contains 40 daily lessons that will help you 1) break free from the stronghold of emotional eating and 2) let go of those negative emotions that rob your joy. Paul tells us in 2 Corinthian 10:3-5 that the answer to tearing down a stronghold isn't self-control - it's truth. Freedom from Emotional Eating will help you take off the lies that make you overeat and put on the truth that will set you free from the control of food.

DISCOVER whats been keeping you from weight loss success After almost 30 years of helping thousands of people, just like you, to get in shape, I realized there is a lot more to losing weight than merely 'diet and workout'. While those are essential elements, for many, they only result in the classic yo-yo diet effect, if any effect at all. The causes for this are many but in essence, the reason you can't successful keep weight off is because you are still in spiritual and emotional bondage, that must be identified and broken before any weight loss will become permanent.

In his midtwenties, Dave Asprey was a successful Silicon Valley multimillionaire. He also weighed 300 pounds, despite the fact that he was doing what doctors recommended: eating 1,800 calories a day and working out 90 minutes a day, six times a week. When his excess fat started causing brain fog and food cravings sapped his energy and willpower, Asprey turned to the same hacking techniques that made his fortune to "hack" his own biology, investing more than $300,000 and 15 years to uncover what was hindering his energy, performance, appearance, and happiness. From private brain EEG facilities to remote monasteries in Tibet, through radioactive brain scans, blood chemistry work, nervous system testing, and more, he explored traditional and alternative technologies to reach his physical and mental prime. The result? The Bulletproof Diet, an anti-inflammatory program for hunger-free, rapid weight loss and peak performance. The Bulletproof Diet will challenge--and change--the way you think about weight loss and wellness. You will skip breakfast, stop counting calories, eat high levels of healthy saturated fat, work out and sleep less, and add smart supplements. In doing so, you'll gain energy, build lean muscle, and watch the pounds melt off. By ditching traditional "diet" thinking, Asprey went from being overweight and sick in his twenties to maintaining a 100-pound weight loss, increasing his IQ, and feeling better than ever in his forties. The Bulletproof Diet is your blueprint to a better life.
