Weigh Down is the PIONEER of faith-based weight loss programs and the only answer to permanent weight loss! National best-selling author of "The Weigh Down Diet" and founder of Weigh Down Ministries, Gwen Shamblin Lara, now brings this groundbreaking approach to weight loss directly to you through the Weigh Down TV app. Weigh Down is unlike any other diet program because instead of making you focus on the food’s content, it walks you through how to replace your love for food with a love for God.

Weigh Down does not require pills, special foods or drink concoctions, or “have-to” exercise regimens! Imagine the freedom of never walking down the diet food aisle again, all while losing your excess weight. God did not put chocolate, sour cream, and butter on this earth to torture you, and you can learn how to enjoy all His amazing foods with a permanent newly-found self control. The Weigh Down method has been around since the mid–1980s, and you will meet people (just like yourself), who have been free from 30, 50, even over 100 pounds, and they have kept the weight off for decades. If you are sick of yo-yo dieting, Weigh Down TV is the answer!

When you were a child, you naturally ate according to the way God created your body -- eating only when you were hungry and stopping when you were full. Go back to that approach and you fill discover an amazing freedom to eat whatever your body is calling for with the rediscovered ability to STOP when you are full. Like Gwen has always said, you will really be able to stop in the middle of a candy bar and have no desire to eat the second half! You can do it...starting today!

What a great app!

I’ve been loving this app for the past few weeks! It has plenty of valuable content including videos and audios of people who have flipped their lives around, and many lessons on how to change bad habits and overcome big obstacles that people have generally lost hope for. The app itself is beautiful, and is very user-friendly which is so nice when you’re on the go and you want to pop something on really quickly. There is one thing that would make it even better which is auto-play (to the next audio or video) when the phone is either locked or playing in the background when the app is not being used.
Other than that, super pleased with this product!

Weigh down TV

I was a bit nervous at first but the site is so easily accessible even a technically challenged girl like me can use it. There is so much meat in all the material. I feel so blessed to have this at my fingertips I uploaded it into all the TVs so I can hear it no matter where I am in the house and I also listen while I work through my phone just like I did with All access. Thank you all at the weigh down office and a huge thank you to Gwen without her this would not be possible. Love to all of you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Very helpful!

I love WDTV in app for bc it allows me to play the audio in the background while doing other things. I would’ve given it 5 stars except for the suggestion I am about to make... BECAUSE it is such valuable information and carrying so many nuggets- it would be exceedingly more helpful (& user friendly) if the app possessed a +/- 10 or 15 seconds button. I keep catching myself trying to tap the screen to rewind or fast forward 10 seconds - especially if I am taking notes. On a device as small as a phone, it can be very difficult to rewind and fast forward. For the price, I would really like to see this feature added. Nonetheless, this app is very beneficial to my life, and I am thankful for it. I recommend to all.
