The Weigh Down Diet: Gwen Shamblin's Inspirational Way to Lose Weight, Stay Slim and Find a New You (Hardback)
"Weigh Down† is showing people, on a daily basis, how our God can transform their hearts and minds so that they can rise above the magnetic pull of the refrigerator! Instead of emphasizing the caloric content of food, the Weigh Down Workshop† encourages you to focus on your natural, internal hunger control. But more importantly, your focus will be trained to turn toward the will of God as it relates to food!" — from "Introduction" (page x)
"After nineteen years of experimenting, a thousand mistakes, over 400 books (read, not written), at least 200 bad diets over my lifetime, five doctors, four physical therapists, three nutritionists, two personal trainers, one therapist, and a partridge in a pear tree, I have found what I believe are the best answers this planet (both hemispheres, East and West) has to offer about living a happy, healthy, and balanced life." — Marilu Henner, Author, in "Introduction" (page xxi)
