The Shepherd’s Diet is yet another diet program and it is also created by a fitness trainer.

Is it effective?

We bring you all the answers below.

Unlike a vast majority of diets that are too restrictive and harmful for health, Shepherd’s diet has health biblical weight loss plans that are meant to promote the consumption of healthy fats and other healthy foods necessary for weight management.

Bearing in mind the program promotes a well-balanced diet the risk of negative health outcomes decreases significantly.

Who is Kristina Wilds?

The Shepherd’s Diet was created by Kristina Wilds and according to the not-so-informative official website of the program, she is an author and personal trainer based in Denver, Colorado area.

For more information about her, you’ll have to check her personal website which states she gained her first certification with AFFA back in 1987, which is truly impressive.

Besides the Shepherd’s Diet, she sells one book through this online retailer, children’s book with only two reviews. So, claims about being #1 bestseller are untrue as well as the statement that the children’s book is #1 bestseller.

Anyway, Kristina Wilds works with children, holds self-defense classes, and has clients with Parkinson’s disease, stroke victims, athletes, and others.

Her passion is to help her clients improve the overall quality of life.

She also set out the same goal for The Shepherd’s Diet, to help every user improve his/her quality of life, manage their weight, and feel healthier.

How Does The Shepherd’s Diet Work?

A great portion of the program revolves around listening to God’s command over your body.

The reason for this is quite simple, when people follow their own desire they usually end up overeating or indulging in foods that are everything but healthy.

Just think about it, the reason you gain weight is that you eat too much junk food and don’t exercise regularly.

The Shepherd’s Diet is a 7-step weight loss system that informs you this way of eating and the tendency for indulgence falls under the seven deadly sins in the Bible[1].

The main goal of health biblical weight loss plans in this particular program is to restructure the way you think about food.

It instructs you to limit food intake by stopping when you aren’t hungry anymore.

This is reasonable primarily because a lot of people feel the urge to eat everything that’s on their plate even if the hunger is long gone.

Although the program focuses on well-balanced nutrition, it is a big disadvantage that the official website doesn’t provide a lot of information.

You, basically, have to purchase the system in order to find out more about it.

What Do You Get By Ordering The Shepherd’s Diet?

The program is available exclusively on the official site at a price of $47.

Your purchase grants access to The Shepherd’s Diet and bonuses including:

  • What Would Jesus Eat Grocery Field Guide[R]
  • “The Moses Secret” Fat Loss Protocol
  • Prayer Warrior Anti-Stress Guide
  • Fat Burning Furnace Nutrients Report

Is there any Money Back Guarantee?

Yes, there is a 60-day money back guarantee.

Complaints and User Experience

The Shepherd’s Diet is a new program and there aren’t too many user experiences. Besides testimonials on the official website (which are never reliable), there are a few comments on the author’s official Facebook page. On her Facebook, a few users wrote that they didn’t receive bonus books with their purchase.

Some customers are enraged over expensive price. Of course, results vary from person to person and with time we can expect more user experiences.

Conclusion

Although this program is based on a valid idea it doesn’t live up to the expectations. Purchasing the Shepherd’s Diet is a way too expensive, insufficient information is provided for customers who want to know more about it, and the author used the info you can find with a simple Google search.

However, if you don’t want to waste your time on Google and would love to find out more about a biblical approach to eating, then this book may be useful to you.
