FOOD/FASTING:

Diet Industry Philosophy:

Weight loss is a matter of ensuring that you burn more calories than you consume.

That means that foods high in calories are ‘bad’ for weight loss and foods that are low in calories are ‘good’.

If you want to lose weight, there are some foods that you just shouldn’t eat.

That’s why restrictive diets are the way to go.

THE CHURCH DIET Philosophy:

There is no ‘good’ food or ‘bad’ food.

The labelling of food as ‘good’ or ‘bad’ is a concept born from diet culture.

For decades, the diet industry has put some foods on a pedestal, and demonised others.

Whether food falls in the ‘good’ or ‘bad’ category it doesn’t matter if you are using THE CHURCH DIET.

FITNESS/FAITH:

Fitness Industry Philosophy:

Go hard or go home. No pain, no gain.

To lose weight, you need to do as much exercise as you can so you can burn lots of calories.

Doing cardio burns the most calories per minute so you should focus on that.

The more exercise you can do, the better.

THE CHURCH DIET Philosophy:

To get results, you have to train smarter not harder.

The best results don’t come to those who train the hardest, but to those who are most consistent.

You don’t need to put yourself through gruelling workouts every day.

When it comes to exercise less is more and you really do not need to spend any more than 5 hours of your week exercising, if you’re doing the right kind of exercise.

FAMILY/FRIENDS:

Diet Industry Philosophy:

Surround yourself with people who have similar goals to you and who are on similar weight loss journey.

Join a weight loss community and get support from others.

THE CHURCH DIET Philosophy:

Surround yourself with people of faith.

Many people don’t understand the power of having the right people behind them and don’t understand the damage that can arise from having the wrong people in their support network.

The wrong people will enable your self-sabotaging behaviours, and will never make you accountable for them.

In fact, they will make you feel good about the habits that are preventing you from losing weight, so that you’re lulled into a false sense of security, believing you don’t have to change anything.
