When I began reading "Full", I was expecting to find help with my lack of discipline when it came to food, which it does. But as I started, I had to slow down in reading because there is so much truth to chew and digest. Truth that will enable you to fight any battle, not just food. Asheritha does a fantastic job of opening God's Word and make it come alive and practical!

I have read a ton of books on dieting. I've even read a number that drew my attention to the spiritual aspect of being overweight. But I have never read a book that identifies the core issue with such clarity as this one. And I have never read a book that has offered such practical suggestions to help me with that spiritual issue.

Ciuciu is blunt. Food cravings are meant to turn us to God, not a diet book. We don't need another diet. We need the Holy Spirit. She lets us know that food will never satisfy us. We are to find our satisfaction in God. Looking for satisfaction elsewhere is idolatry, a spiritual war we are in. “Satan will use whatever tool he can to distract people from seeking satisfaction in God...”

I've heard that before but what impressed me here is that Ciuciu goes to great lengths to explain how to stir up a hunger for God. It takes time and work and includes prayer and action. We must be continually resetting our minds toward God. She shares her own experiences and struggles and that section alone is worth reading the book.

In addition to practical spiritual help, Ciuciu also gives practical help in taming the role of food in our lives. She writes about triggers, for example, and how they are designed to turn us to God.

This book is, by far, about finding our satisfaction in God. “Idolatry is … believing God is not enough and that I need something other than Him to be satisfied.” “If all our needs are met in God, if He becomes our satisfaction every morning...” we will not look for satisfaction in food.

This is a hard hitting book yet is filled with compassion and practical help. Ciuciu has added a Digest the Truth section after each chapter with questions for individual or group use. I highly recommend this book to anyone willing to face the spiritual reality about food obsession.

I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher. My comments are an independent and honest review.

When I heard of this book and what it was about I had to pick it up. It meets me in a place where I struggle with food fixation. I kept turning the pages and saying "yes! That's me. Yes that too!" The book clearly addresses what food fixation is; both over eating and under eating. It covers it from all angles and ways it presents itself. Triggers. Reasons. Etc. Scripture is used throughout the book in very effective ways to show the reader that the ultimate goal is to glorify God with what we put into our bodies. Asheritah Ciuciu presents methods and tips to overcome food fixation with Gods help. She recognizes failure/set back will happen and encourages the reader accordingly from Gods word. I'm not left asking how will I do this. She covers everything. It's a very thorough book. I would highly recommend it.

If you are struggling with food, whether it’s obsessing over the newest trend in health food, or you just can’t seem to shed those pounds, this book is for you. If you ever find yourself obsessing about what you’re eating or not eating, or what other people are eating or not eating, this book is for you. If you want to break free of your cravings, this book is for you. I think Asheritah’s own words from “Full” sum it up the best: “This is not just another diet or eating plan; this is a new way of living in the freedom of Jesus Christ.” Wouldn’t it be great if you could exchange for cravings for chocolate, for cravings for the Lord? Don’t you wish you could hunger for time with Jesus, the way you hunger for French fries? “Full” will get you started on that journey. God truly wants you to be free from any bondage you might have in regards to food, whether it’s celery sticks or pizza, and Asheritah’s conversational, yet convicting writing is chock full of Scripture to point you on your way. The best part is that this truly isn’t just a book written for the purpose of writing – Asheritah has lived this and is sharing from her personal experience and struggles. I have benefited so much from the Scriptural truths presented in a new light, and from the challenges offered in this book. If you are struggling and secular solutions have failed you (and I’m guessing they have, if you’re checking out this book!), then give “Full” a shot. I haven’t regretted it, and I don’t think you will either.

This book is excellent! Not just for the yo-yo dieter or emotional eater, no... if your healthy eating consumes your thoughts more than Jesus, you need this book also. Very well written, relatable, and full of scripture. My copy is heavily highlighted and I wanted to share SO many quotes with others...it's that good!!

Here's a little gem from chapter one:

" Think about it: whether we’re controlled by pride, greed, alcohol, lust, or gluttony, the sin is not first in the action but rather in the influence; what needs to be rooted out is whatever controls us in our hearts, and only then will our outer actions change. In other words, until we deal with the heart issue of seeking fullness in food instead of God, our eating habits will never change."

Now go place this book in your cart!! 🛒
