I Deserve a Donut
By Barb Raveling
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Do you eat when you're stressed? Or when you're bored, lonely, or annoyed? If so, this app will help! It contains 32 sets of questions and 150+ Bible verses you can use to go to God for help with weight loss!
Here’s how it works. When you’re in a tempting situation, all you can think of is the food: how it looks. How it smells. And how good it would taste. What you need is a way to break the hold it has on you. This app will help. The questions are designed to help you see the big picture: Will eating really make you happy? Will it be worth it? Would it be better not to eat?
The questions and Bible verses will help you get a biblical perspective on life - and that will help you break free from those negative emotions that drive you to eat. As you go through the questions and the verses, you’ll begin to see your desires change - so you'll no longer even want that donut!
Here’s why: It’s the lies you believe about food that make you want to overeat. When you replace those lies with truth, you’ll actually want to follow your boundaries. And that will help you lose weight and keep it off.

There is also a Bible study that goes with this app called Taste for Truth: A 30 Day Weight Loss Bible Study which is available at Amazon.

Excellent resource right at your finger tips!
Barb Raveling's works on renewing the mind is amazing. I have been a Christian for 25 years and I had never been taught the practical application of Romans 12:1-2. I am trying to use the Donut app consistently to renew my mind. Coupled with the Taste for Truth bible study... wow! I feel like I am finally seeing my mind change on the issue of food! This app is always with me because my phone is almost always with me and I love the ease to take it out and renew my mind so I can avoid temptation.
What I've been looking for
This app is designed well. Easy to navigate and use. Why do I need this app? I needed something quick to turn to address my many bad reasons, other than hunger, for wanting to eat. I have in a flash at my finger tip a tool to turn to to pin point my cravings and address them instead of giving in to them. The verses of scripture that address each emotion or lie that leads me to binge is right in this app organized for quick referencing! I recommend it.
I love this app!
So happy that this was made into an app that you can take with you wherever you go. It takes a little discipline to get into the habit of opening it when you need it but it is right there when you do. I love how simple it is to use and the questions are powerful. There is always something that fits the situation you are in and really helps to change the way you think about food. I am very grateful for this app.
