What is Life Unbinged : Journey to Surrender™?
This is a food freedom program led by Kristy McCammon. It is based on the idea that Jesus came to give us life and to live it to the full, and being in bondage to food is not part of that plan. When we Surrender to HIM in our daily walk, we are able to put Jesus on the throne of our lives, rather than food. Many of us are familiar with patterns of unhealthy bingeing and “using” food for comfort in our lives. Life Unbinged is about creating healthy boundaries and eliminating the very thing that was keeping us in bondage and providing support and tools to keep us out of bondage and into food freedom.
What does “Food Freedom” mean?
Food Freedom means we can go about our days without worrying about food all day long. We eat our meals and live life in between. Temptation may still present itself, but we learn the tools to overcome it and trust God’s promise that He will always provide a way out. Food freedom means to experience peace around food and trust that our three deliciously abundant meals a day are exactly what we need.
Is there an eating plan?
Yes. We follow the traditional food addicts eating plan that has worked for people for decades. There are four boundaries in regards to food: no sugar, no flour, eating only at meal times, and measured portions.
What is the fifth boundary?
We believe very strongly that when our relationship with the Lord is doing well, that overflows into the rest of our lives. When God is on the throne in our hearts, it is much easier to not look to food for comfort and distraction when both good times or hard times come our way. In order to surrender our food to Him, He needs to be the first place we go, rather than food.
Why is there a no sugar boundary?
Sugar has been found to be a highly addictive drug in our brains. It sets off chemical reactions that make us crave even more sugar. Some people can moderate their sugar intake, but for many people when they eat sugar, their brain demands more. One of my favorite sayings is “None is easier than one.”
Why is there a no flour boundary?
Flour, surprisingly, has been found to act just like sugar in our brain. Many of us know sugar is bad for us, but unfortunately, refined flour sets off the same addictive part of our brains that sugar does.
How is this a uniquely Christian program?
Life Unbinged : Journey to Surrender™ acknowledges Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior in our lives. Kristy is a non-denominational Christian who desires to bring glory to God in everything she does. The program, videos, assignments, devotions, and coaching all focus on turning to Jesus as our help when we experience temptation in all areas of life, including our food journeys. We heavily rely on the Bible as our “road map” to life and as the path to food freedom, understanding that can only happen when we put our relationship with God as priority in our lives. However, we also acknowledge that we are precious children of God, no matter our current weight or food thought status. Our weight is not a measure of our worth in God’s eyes – he doesn’t care about our weight or clothing size, but he does care that our heart is turned to Him.
