5 out of 5 stars5 out of 5 stars5 out of 5 stars5 out of 5 stars5 out of 5 starsThin for a lifetime
Posted by Anonymous on 6/27/2000
I am currently on the Prism diet. I am a 19 year old college student who is not more then 15 pounds over weight. I chose this program as a life changing step so that I wouldn't have to deal with being over weight in years to come. This program is excellent! My mom is also on the program and has lost close to 60 pounds. I have been on several diet plans, but the one thing that makes this plan so special is that it deals with the phycological aspect of food in peoples lifes. As you follow the plan, you do daily reading. It's almost as if the writter knows exactly what you are thinking when you are thinking it! If you are feeling rebelious against the program that day, the reading knows and talks you into the right frame of mind! For those who are religious, it deals with god helping you to over come what has held you back for so long. I feel that this program can work for anyone. It's hard and challenging but aren't all life desicisions?

This book so motivated me to try the program! It describes the program, tells real life stories, and even includes details to get you started on the program! This is the first time I'd learned not to "diet" but to make real changes in my diet! I recommend this book to everyone who asks-and this is the ONLY weight loss program I'd recommend! An added bonus is that it is even interesting to read! You won't want to put it down, and that's saying a lot for a weight loss book! Even my mom was inspired by this book! HIGHLY recommended!

This book was a God send. After reading this book I joined a local group, that was on May 4, 2000, and as of 12/20/00 I have lost 68 pounds, but I know that it was only through the grace of God. Karen placed if before me (Prism), but God has transformed me into who He created me to be. I was lost and weighted 217lbs, but through His grace and mercy I now am at 149lbs, and am 9 pounds away from my original goal, but I'm hoping that God's will is for another 19 pound loss. As I've been on this journey out of the"wilderness" I pray to weight 130lbs, but God's will will be done in this life. I know that this is the last program I will be on because of the key principles and guidelines of Prism. I thank God for Prism in my life. I cried out and He heard my cry and introduced Prism to me. Thank you Karen and thank you my God who makes all possibilities possible.

For all of you that are members of the Prism Weight loss group, I think you will find this book very inspiring. It has many very moving testimonials from people that have reached their weight loss goals. It is the perfect book to accompany the journals and video tapes that class offers. For the person who is interested in learning what the program is about, this book tells it all from what foods to eat to why the program is such a success. I wish I would have had this book in hand when I began my journey, it would have been alot easier. Very informative read!

Posted by Deborah Knight on 12/13/2001
Thank you so much for including this book on Amazon. I have never been able to stick with a program for more than a few days, maybe a week at the most. I always cheated on WW and would feel guilty. The Prism program asks you to make a commitment by signing a statement of resolution and you are the only one who can break that promise. I have been off sugar and white flour and "junk" for four weeks and have never felt better. I have been a supplement user for years but never found a program that encouraged their use and WW didn't fill in the badly needed nutritional gaps and the deep need for a relationship with God that fills the emotional and spiritual gaps. I have not weighed, (we are asked to give up the bathroom scale), but I have lost one pant size and 1/2 a shoe size and all of my clothes are too big now. I probably have about 30 pounds yet to true body weight.
If you would like a program that encourages you, helps you to know yourself and God better, and works without alot of nagging, then Prism is the one for you. I do not have a group yet but I am using the videos which are professional and ver informative.
Thank you and God (b)less you!
