Have you heard of "The Makers Diet".  I don't know if it's a weight loss diet...........I have the book, but hate to admit that I've never looked at it!!

Nancy and Kimberly,  He has a book after the Maker's Diet called Perfect Weight America  I like his way of eating.  I've taken the Garden of Life products for years.  feel free to pm me if you have specific questions.  I believe I have a copy of Perfect Weight America on my bookshelf.

Some churches approve of Gwen Shamblin's Weigh Down Workshop and I've heard some won't do her workshops.

First Place For Health is an excellent program and our church has used it for a small group study before.  They have leader's kits and stuff for participants.  cbd.com has great prices on it.
