Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
I thought this book was a wonderful addition to the huge arsenal of books written to help those struggling with compulsive eating and weight control issues. And, from a clinical standpoint, her ideas really do work. I will be recommending it to my patients who follow the Christian faith journey.

For the record, the book is written for the Christian niche, which is very sizeable market worldwide. It seems that her faith-based approach is offensive to some as reflected in the other reviews; and, because her faith approach differs from theirs, they clearly don't appreciate what Dr. Mintle is saying in her helpful book.

Interestingly, their response to their not understanding is to react in an angry manner. Maybe it would be more helpful to consider taking the pathway of acceptance and tolerance rather than hatred and rejection. And, perhaps these negative attitudes are saying something about what might be keeping them trapped in their own weight issues?

The truth can set you free, but it might have to hurt a little bit first.

This little booklet was short and to the point. It really helped me in rethinking how I should eat and how to be healthier to my body. (With God's Help :) )

By Sam Hunter on September 25, 2005
Format: Paperback
If you want to exchange the worship of food for the worship of Jesus, then this is your dream book. The chapters are full of specially composed prayers deemed suitable for compulsive overeaters, together with Biblical examples of the values of eating. Be warned that in the introduction you are going to come across the following paragraph, which sets the tone of the book. I quote:

"Food does not have to rule your life...Self-control is possible when the Holy Spirit lives within you...It comes as you surrender your life to God, walk in His ways and allow His Spirit to direct you. As the Spirit leads you, He will renew your mind, take control of your emotions and bring your will into obedience."

So this is where I've been going wrong. If giving yourself over to Jesus works for you then I'm truly glad. I'm afraid this book just made me head for the chocolates -yes, naturally, the whole box!
