Are you tired of diets? Good! The first thing you need to know about us is what we are not. We are not a diet.
So what is Shibboleth? It is different, you can see that in our name. We are:
A lifestyle. We teach, engage, discover and encourage each other.
A group of individuals with goals of losing weight and gaining a healthy mind, body and soul.
We are a family.
A way of life.
Shibboleth is a faith-based weight loss and wellness program that is very effective. Shibboleth is a way of life for those living in the world, but are not of the world. Our goal is to walk in the Spirit more and to feed the fleshless. Name sounds a bit weird? We understand it is different, and that why we chose it.
Webster’s Dictionary defines "shibboleth" as:
"a belief, principle, or practice which is adhered to but which is thought by some people to be inappropriate or out of date."
"a custom, phrase, or use of language that acts as a test of belonging to, or as a stumbling block to becoming a member of, a particular social class, profession, etc"
Here at Shibboleth, we are a band of people who chose to adhere to different values. We see ourselves differently and food differently. We reject our culture’s idolization of food. We don’t live to eat, we eat to live. We don’t sacrifice quality of life for cheap, tasty and fast. Most importantly, we are not interested in a diet; we are interested in a lifestyle.
In short, Shibboleth is not trying to change millions of lives. Shibboleth is trying to change one life at a time in a fun, family atmosphere. If you have any questions or concerns, call the Shibboleth Center at 470-227-7528.
NO. Foods can be purchased at your local grocery store. You can do the program without ever purchasing a single product from us. In fact, we have several virtual grocery store tours online to show you how easy it is to find approved food and make healthy meals from your local stores.
Because we live the lifestyle we have found many delicious products or “void-replacements” that keep us from feeling deprived when we are trying to stay “perfect”. We keep these in our care centers and online as a convenience for you.
These products make our eating lifestyle fun and can even boost fat burning results but they are absolutely not required.
Our mission is to help you lose weight. We WILL accomplish that with passion, heart and a love of sharing what we have learned with you, not to sell you a bunch of nutritional supplements.
