The PrayFit Diet was created by exercise physiologist and New York Times bestselling author, Jimmy Peña. He is also a celebrity trainer whose clients have included LL Cool J, Tyler Perry and Mario Lopez.
Peña says his highest calling is to help people transform their bodies and souls through his unique approach to fitness. He believes that faith is a powerful tool for overcoming any obstacle, including your health.
On this program you can lose up to twenty pounds in thirty-three days.
The PrayFit Diet combines spiritual motivation with a perfectly portioned meal plan to help you achieve your goals.
PrayFit explains you don’t need to count calories or food groups in order to lose weight. Instead he advocates a diet that focuses on whole foods and clean eating with a perfect balance of:
This macronutrient balance can increase energy levels, decrease inflammation, improve cholesterol and blood pressure, and promote healthy blood sugar levels.
PrayFit includes a 33-day meal plan, which provides between 1500-1700 calories per day.
Clean and lean sources of protein promote fat-burning, muscle repair, and keep you feeling full for longer.
High-fiber, complex carbs provide steady energy to fuel your workouts and improve brain function and overall wellbeing. Examples are:
Monounsaturated fats found in olive oil, avocado, and peanut butter can reduce your cholesterol levels.
Polyunsaturated fats such as in salmon, walnuts and sunflower seeds improve cardiovascular health, reduce cancer risk, and enhance fat-burning.
PrayFit emphasizes food should fuel your life, not rule your life. Faith can be a powerful tool for overcoming obstacles, which includes your health and weight loss challenges.
The book’s goal is to help everyone see improving their health as a way to serve their community, family and most importantly, God. When you take care of yourself you have a greater capacity to be of service and spread God’s message.
The PrayFit diet provides Biblical inspiration encouraging readers to become to embrace health as an act of worship.
