The New Life Promise plan includes a variety of wholesome, natural foods the Lord has given us. We do not recommend any heavily processed foods or anything artificial. We do not use artificial sweeteners in our plans (no Equal, Splenda, or Sweet'N Low) as those items have been heavily linked to cancer and weight gain. They have also been shown to make sugar cravings much worse.
Our plans include the following natural foods:
- Pastured poultry (chicken and turkey)
- Organic eggs
- Grass-fed beef and bison
- Wild fish and seafood
- Rice (all varieties)
- Oats (gluten-free is recommended)
- Raw nuts and nut butters
- Coconut oil
- Avocado oil
- Greek yogurt
- Cheese (all varieties)
All Fruits and Vegetables

Here is what a few members had to say about our program...
"I love the food!! I have an excitement to see how good each meal tastes!! I told myself not to get on the scale til next Monday. But I cheated. I just wanted to see if I was losing. I started December 2 and today December 4 the scale was down 4 lbs. This is exciting for me because I love the food and the fact that I have a menu made for me every day! This is what I need is someone to plan the meals, give me the recipes to be successful." - Ranee
"If you're just starting and wondering if your family will eat this food. I started thinking I was going to have to make myself separate meals having four kids and a husband that hates healthy food. After just day two my family said no more cooking separate meals, they want my food. My husband just came home for lunch and said 'I can already feel a huge difference in how I feel.' My husband has never had a weight issue and can eat whatever he wants. He is all for completely changing out all food in our house now. On top of that my grocery bill has gone way down. It is not taking as much food to get my family full. I just can't believe that my husband wants the same foods I am eating to lose weight!" - Sarah L.
"I am on day 14 and down 9 lbs. More importantly my clothes fit much better and I love this new way of cooking. Never been on a meal plan that included such tasty meals. Even hubby has enjoyed a few of the meals. I used to drink 4 or 5 diet sodas a day. Not anymore! Thanks for appearing on my Facebook page a couple weeks ago. To God be the glory!" - Susan R.
"When I was on the Optavia diet, I ate protein and vegetables and very little seasoning. It was the most boring food an unsatisfying. But, with this new way of eating, I cannot believe that I actually love vegetables. And, I'm able to make the most simplest and cheapest food that taste like gourmet food. How did you figure out how to use these very few ingredients and make it taste so good. I actually look forward to trying the next recipe!!!!! Praise God!!! Thank you so much Isabel for allowing God to transform you into this beautiful gift for all of us! Thank you for going through the hard times like Paul did in chains, so the rest of the body could prosper." - Premia A.
Frequently Asked Questions
What if I am a vegetarian?
Vegetarians can replace any meats they do not eat with vegetarian options like chickpeas and beans. We do not recommend soy or any soy-based products. We have many vegetarians who have loved our program for the faith portion and for the community support but have had to make modifications to the meal plans. This post provides some guidance for how you can make the meal plans work for you while following a plant-based diet: New Life Promise for Vegetarians.
I am a diabetic. Can I safely follow this plan?
Most certainly yes! We have so many members who have been able to control their blood sugar naturally and greatly reduce their need for diabetic medications using our program (with their doctor's approval, of course).
I have food allergies. Are there substitutions given for food I cannot eat?
Yes, you can replace any particular food you cannot eat with another good option from that same category (protein, carb, fat, vegetable, or fruit). We give you guidelines and help you make those adjustments.
We would love to have you inside our New Life Promise family!
