LDS author finds a better diet — God’s

If losing weight is one of your New Year’s resolutions, why not look to religion as a guide?

That’s what Michelle Snow did — and it worked.

By drawing on the dietary teachings of Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, Islam, Seventh-day Adventism and Mormonism, the Kaysville mother, nurse and author lost nearly 40 pounds and dramatically reduced her lifelong digestive problems.

“God has told his people how to eat,” Snow says in an interview. “It’s our choice what consequences we want for our bodies. Why should we choose what man has made over what God made? He knows our bodies best. He made them.”

Snow, a Mormon, has assembled those teachings and her own insights into a just-published book, The W.O.W. Diet: Words of Wisdom and Dietary Enlightenment From Leading World Religions and Scientific Study.
