Christian weight-loss programs focus on biblical principles

BIRMINGHAM, AL  –  A mother-daughter team believe that anyone addicted to food can stop, if they follow the 'Guided by Him' program.

Julie Morris and her daughter Sarah Morris Cherry wrote the book, 'Guided by Him' that teaches a 12-step Christian program to weight loss.

They say the program is based on biblical principals and encourages participants to turn their inner most challenges with food over to god.

It's not a diet book, but it offers positive ways to overcome stress and the root causes that push some people to use food as a coping mechanism.
