Customer Reviews

This "non-program-approved" book is my very favorite daily meditation book.
Norma R. Evett
What I've found in Food For Thought is not so much any meditations, but daily messages that are very uplifting.
Jim Fargiano
I think everyone should buy this book, not just overeaters, it has lots in it for everyone.

The entries are very helpful for a beginner in OA. I have found that the entries stick with me throughout the day and help me to understand concepts that I am struggling with. For example, I had difficulty envisioning abstinence as anything but impossible. After reading a few of the entries on abstinence, I was able to define it in a way that I am comfortable with - abstinence is freedom.

It is a good little book. I cannot speak for long time members of OA, but as a beginner, this book is helpful in finding my own worth away from food.

I purchased the book, FOOD FOR THOUGHT, a few years ago. Elizabeth L. knows what she is talking about. I read a daily meditation each morning and always find something in the writing that pretains to me. If you suffer from compulsive overeating, buy FOOD FOR THOUGHT. It's very inspirational.

This book has been a great support for me. I often go back to passages over and over. It is supportive and written in a positive manner. It addresses motivation, making mistakes, forgivness, you name it. I know people that use this book for mediations even if they aren't over eaters. I highly, highly recommend this book!

This book has a lot of powerful truth tucked into it. Daily meditations on compulsive overeating don't beat around the bush or contain simple "feel good" thoughts. The writer has written several other books and really tells the truth in love. I would highly recommend this book for anyone who is struggling with food that is out of control.

This "non-program-approved" book is my very favorite daily meditation book. I've been reading it every day at work for a few years now. It was a gift from my first sponsoree. Now I also have the e-version so I don't have to carry the book back and forth from work on my days off.

I use this book daily. It helps me to center on the right things, the important things in my life. It helps me to make good decisions about my day and my relationship with God and other human beings. I recommend this book to anyone who wants a healthy, centered life.

This book has been so helpful, along with Letting Go of Compulsive Eating: Twelve Step Recovery from Compulsive Eating - Daily Meditations. Both of these give me something to think about and reflect on throughout my day and lead me towards better choices. I've had more success from doing daily readings out of these books than I have ever had before. Food for Thought is also a small, convenient size to take with you if you leave town or just want to have something in an emergency situation! It's small enough to fit in move average sized purses without taking the whole thing up.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a supplementary book for members of Overeaters Anonymous or those trying to overcome overeating. It provides a daily inspirational message to help you to stay on your path to success. I have found it to be very helpful for refocusing my thoughts in the right direction. It's truly worth the small price.
