YouthPastorDiet.com Frequently Asked Questions

Have you heard about youthpastordiet.com?

I posted about my latest crazy idea late last week and the thing has taken off! It is a 90-day challenge to lose weight, and uses the Weight Loss Wars platform to guide the group with leaderboards, profiles and graphs. I’d still like another few people to join us to push the prize purse over $1,000 – right now it sits at $720 for the person who loses the most weight.

I’m fat. Why is that?
The scientific answer is that you eat too many Doritos Tacos at Taco Bell and wash it down with gargantuan handfuls of Cinnamon Twists and Mt. Dew. Actually this is just a guess, but probably not that far off.

I really want to join, but I don’t understand why it costs $30?
The idea is to keep the “not so serious” people out. This is WAR! If you don’t get it, just keep your money and your lovely spare tire.

I am so skinny I don’t need to lose weight. I want to support?
First off, thank God for your rabbit-like metabolism. Even if you are poor the rest of your life (and you will be because of the career you’ve chosen) you have been blessed more than most other humans on this planet. Secondly, cheer people on! Tell your friends, Tweet youthpastordiet.com!

I like being fat. It is part of my youth pastor persona. Do you want me to stop being funny, too?
Good point. Everyone knows fat people are funnier than skinny people and fat youth workers are better youth workers than ones who have a 26.2 sticker on the back window of their car. But I’d imagine you could be the first non-fat-and-super-funny youth worker slash comedian. Go for it.

Cash prize? Isn’t that gambling
If it makes you feel better, I (Josh) will just keep the money if you win. Wouldn’t want you to sin. I grew up in a fundamental Baptist Church, I didn’t know cards or dice existed until I was 32.

I’m not a youth worker, can I still join?
Sure! As long as you have SOME connection to youth ministry – maybe a spouse, family member or you volunteer.

What should I eat for the next 90 days?
Stop eating pretty much everything you want to eat and everything that is typically offered at any youth event or church function. Oh, and start exercising too.

I have a FAQ that isn’t listed here, what do I do?
Leave a comment below, and we’ll try to answer them!

  1. If you win the money, you have to tithe the mandatory 10%….right?

  2. How do I join this competition?? I joined the website and just can’t figure out how to pay or join the group because it is private! Most of the links to youthpastordiet.com are leading to a page saying:
    The page you are looking for could not be found. If you feel you have reached this in error, please tell us. Be sure to include a detailed explanation of the problem.”

    Man! Missed getting in on the competition! Oh well, commited to lose the weight. Wish there was a way for anyone who didn’t make it into the competition to have a group for support and fellowship.

  4. OK … I’m opening it up for one more week. But I’m planning on having a BIG headstart by then – you have been warned! JG
