Top Customer Reviews
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.
"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!
