5.0 out of 5 stars A different kind of weight loss book January 28, 2014
I am the weight loss/diet book expert—my book shelves are lined with shelves of books on the subject—each one appeared to be the solution, only to leave me disappointed and disillusioned—another failure. I made a promise to myself to not look through another “diet book”. Then I came across “Show your Food Who’s Boss”. I skeptically agreed to read the book, figuring it would be another book of disappointment and disillusionment.
This book was different—this one was actually making sense… “What works for someone else may not be the solution for you.” That’s so simple and yet so profound—a lightbulb moment. This book is filled with freedom—a freedom to explore the “whys” to my issues, to look deep below the surface to find out what was really making me tick. The author even recommends reading the parts you need and giving “permission” to skip around and not have to do them in order” (my paraphrase).

The other thing I enjoyed from this book was it was readable—this isn’t filled with huge scientific or psychological mumbo-jumbo—it’s from the author’s heart, based on her own experience, a very open, vulnerable heart to share her journey and open her life up to the reader.
If you have struggled with your weight your whole life, or a good portion, I urge you to give this a try—this may be the key that unlocks that door.

I was given a copy of this book to read. I have never met the author and have not received compensation for my review.

5.0 out of 5 stars No More Being Bossed By Food! January 30, 2014
After reading Mary Lou’s book, I’m left feeling empowered over food choices, not just for me but also for my husband and our three girls! Mary Lou shares her story in such a candid way and I am encouraged by the success she has maintained over the years. I am excited to incorporate the wisdom she shares and also teach my girls to really listen to what their bodies need instead of wasting precious energy and time being bossed around by food. Thank you Mary Lou for sharing your story and your tips for losing weight and keeping it off! -Leigh Ann Napier. iBloom Copywriter

5.0 out of 5 stars More then another diet book February 9, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When I first saw this book I figure it was just another diet book. Every-time go on a diet I gain weigh. But I was wrong. It is not a diet book but helpful strategies to find ways that works for you. It is a easy and quick read. The book takes you on a journey not a quick fix..

I found most the Scripture helpful and encouraging. It is a good book for Christian women. who struggle with food and their weight.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Last Weight-Loss Book You'll Ever Need January 30, 2014
Mary Lou's book helps the reader "customize" a plan that works best for them! As a life coach, I'm always interested in an "inside-out" approach instead of an "outside-in", like so many plans out there. Mary Lou focuses on the freedom that comes from her approach and weight-loss naturally follows. This book may very well be the last you'll ever need!

By Mathabo
Who ever thought that food can talk? In Mary Lou's "Show Your Food Who's Boss: Gain Freedom, Lose Weight & Keep It Off" I got to understand that one builds a relationship with food that might be healthy or dangerous. The book is simple and to the point. She sandwiched it between Scriptures however it has the potential to reach anyone who is struggling with weight or just looking to have a healthy relationship with food. The book has short yet challenging chapters that gives one a guideline on how to keep the weight permanently off. I recommend this book for moms and dads who have teenagers , for anyone who want to have a healthy relationship with food and for those who struggles to keep the weight off, it will challenge and yet comfort you with the way forward to healthy living. Great read. Mathabo Masilela-PCCI Student

5.0 out of 5 stars Change Your Perspective on Dieting February 14, 2014
By Claudia
I have read so many diet books and tried so many different diets, low carb, counting calories and whatever the latest phase is, to no avail. You take it off, you put it back on, you take it off, you put it back on. Mary Lou's book is a fresh perspective on weight loss and our relationship with food. It is easy to read, based on God's Word and gives practical ways to change the way we look at food and take back the control it has on us. The fastest way to change our life is to change our mindset, this book is a wonderful guide to help in that process. One size does not fit all and Mary Lou's own journey through this process has given me hope, wonderful tools and another way to look at my relationship with food. If you are on the yo-yo journey as I have been, I highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gaining hope for those suffering with food cravings February 14, 2014
Show Your Food Who's Boss is a book of hope for those who have tried diets and weight loss programs without success. The author shares a message of hope from her own weight loss journey. Her message encourages the reader to look beyond the normal weight loss programs and explore their eating habits and lifestyle and utilize this knowledge in making the necessary life style changes to show their food choices who is boss and to gain freedom over what they eat and the reasons they are eating.

An extra bonus in the book Show Your Food Who's Boss, the author offers an outline for groups. This is an excellent tool to be used with groups. Violet McCreary, Optimal Wellbeing Coach.
