I surveyed the Take Back Your Temple private support group recently about the food types that have hijacked their brains most in the past.
Sugar was the clear “winner.” I did some research about the sources of sugar in the typical diet.
What I discovered shocked me.
One source accounts for 50% of the sugar most people consume!
A TBYT member eliminated this one source and dropped 30 pounds! She lived out the truth of 1 Corinthians 6:12:
All things are lawful for me, but all things are not helpful. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.”
Here are the sources of sugar according to this American Heart Association graphic:
This is what shocked me: What we drink accounts for 50% of the sugar we consume. Soft drinks, Energy drinks, Sports Drinks, Fruit Drinks and Tea add up to that 50%.
A lady in my first Take Back Your Temple class proved how powerful it can be to just replace the habit of drinking sugar. She had a habit of drinking 6 Coca Colas per day.
Just by replacing the soft drinks in her daily consumption with water with lemon, she lost 30 pounds! This was her reason for the change:
I have lost 30 pounds and have kept it off for over 1 year with Take Back Your Temple. My mother suffered from high blood pressure, diabetes, and kidney disease. Watching her battle these illnesses was a wake-up call. I knew I needed to make a change because I didn’t want to go through that. Also, two of my brothers have diabetes and another is borderline diabetic. I didn’t want to follow that path and when a friend told me about the Take Back Your Temple weight loss class that was being held at her church, I jumped on it.
When I saw Kim’s ‘Before’ picture, I said to myself “If she can do it, I can do it.” And I have!

I’ve decided in my own life I would rather eat my calories than drink them because I like to eat!
Think about it: What small change can you make today that would make a big difference in your health and weight?

P.S. When it comes to weight loss, do you often know what you should do but have a hard time doing it?
You are not alone!
I struggled with this issue on my own weight loss journey, but I discovered that “Nothing is different until you think differently.” – Pastor James MacDonald
The value of the Take Back Your Temple program is that you will learn how to think differently through using Biblical keys to overcome obstacles. You’ll discover how to win the Spiritual and mental battle that often causes us to become inconsistent and get off-track on our weight loss journey.
This is “can’t-miss” information if you are ready to succeed permanently and join a community of others doing the same.
