Thanks for your interest in the Thin Within program. Our prayer is that the information contained in this site will help you decide if Thin Within is right for you.
Thin Within is based on two principles – one is physical and one is spiritual.
The physical principle is that we should eat only when truly hungry and stop eating before we are full. At Thin Within, we use what we call a “Hunger Scale” to track eating patterns. We encourage people to eat when they are at a “0”, or truly hungry, and stop eating when they are at a “5”, which is before they are full. There are no good foods or bad foods – we simply want people to respond to their bodies God given signals of hunger and fullness. When someone is truly hungry, we want them to have the freedom to eat a healthy and balanced meal at that time.
The spiritual principle of Thin Within comes into play because it is often hard for us to eat from a “0” to a “5” in our own strength. This is usually because we often eat as a response to being upset, excited, anxious nervous, depressed, lonely, etc. At this point, we are no longer eating for physical nourishment, but we are creating a relationship with food and turning to it to provide us with a way of dealing with emotional and spiritual issues. We are no longer looking to food to provide us with just physical life, but spiritual life as well. While food may provide some level of comfort for a very short while, food cannot obviously provide us with spiritual life. Only a relationship with our Heavenly Father can accomplish that.
Therefore, Thin Within takes people through a curriculum that is specifically designed to make sure they truly understand their relationship with their Heavenly Father. As people understand that true spiritual life comes through their relationship with the Father, their relationship with food will take a lesser role in their life.
