Do you eat when you're stressed? Or when you're bored, lonely, or annoyed? If so, this app will help! It contains 32 sets of questions and 150+ Bible verses you can use to go to God for help with weight loss!
Here’s how it works. When you’re in a tempting situation, all you can think of is the food: how it looks. How it smells. And how good it would taste. What you need is a way to break the hold it has on you. This app will help. The questions are designed to help you see the big picture: Will eating really make you happy? Will it be worth it? Would it be better not to eat?
The questions and Bible verses will help you get a biblical perspective on life - and that will help you break free from those negative emotions that drive you to eat. As you go through the questions and the verses, you’ll begin to see your desires change - so you'll no longer even want that donut!
Here’s why: It’s the lies you believe about food that make you want to overeat. When you replace those lies with truth, you’ll actually want to follow your boundaries. And that will help you lose weight and keep it off.

Ratings and Reviews
Barb is absolutely amazing at walking a person through the exact lies we need to remove and replacing them with truths. Bringing to light and revealing where we are when we are confused and discouraged and failing so that we can walk away from those lies and have success. Also in identifying the emotions we experience that control our actions. **What we think affects how you feel affect how we act.** Going through these logical questions helps to dissipate strong controlling emotions to then set us free. Sometimes if I am short on time I will use the app orally *and* answer the questions out loud for more effective learning; most of the time I try to answer the questions in writing which is what Barb recommends because there is scientific evidence of the effects of writing something down and the changes then made in our brain receiving the information. Also when I write them down in a journal I can review them and reference them later. Love, **love** this app. I’ve used it for about 5 weeks now and I’m so grateful to have it with me in my phone so easily and discreetly wherever I go! Such a simple but priceless tool! 🤗
Finally a way to be sane with food!
This is an excellent app. We live in challenging food times -food of every kind is available in abundance everywhere and all the time. But so much is not healthy food and it’s so easy to eat more than we need. Also, we have many impulses within us that urge us to eat that are not based on hunger and true physical need. For those of us who have developed more complicated relationships with food, especially, boundaries are needed to keep food in its rightful place. This app allows us to instantly pause and consider our motives and actions before we eat outside of the boundaries we’ve individually chosen. In the process, those who use this app will grow in wise, godly self-control not only in this area of their lives but in all areas of their lives. They will grow closer to God and grow in obedience to God. What could be better! And the side benefit is a healthy body. Finally, a way to think and behave sanely around food.
“Missing Link” for Weight Loss—the spiritual component
As an RD, LDN, (registered/licensed dietitian), I meet many patients/clients who know WHAT to do, they just don’t know HOW to have the strength/willpower to do it. Christ is the answer, but patients/clients don’t understand how this, how their faith, applies to weight management/health. This is an area in my own struggle as well as in my patients/clients weight/health struggles that is often overlooked or looked at as “taboo” to speak about, but it is MOST essential!
This app can be easily shared with patients/clients, friends/relatives, to give them practical help for weight management and also as way to introduce them to Jesus Christ or help them to grow in their walk.
“For what will a man be profited, if he gains the whole world, and forfeits his soul?” (Matthew 16:26)
“...for bodily discipline is only if little profit, but godliness is profitable for all things, since it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come.” 1 Timothy 4:8
Thank you for this app, books, and other help that points to Him through one’s health journey!
