From the Back Cover
What's the real reason we struggle with eating problems? We try to use food to satisfy our souls. We all crave intimacy, security, and acceptance, and when these needs are not met, we often turn to substitutes such as food and engage in "disordered eating." Hunger Within helps you learn to allow God to satisfy your deepest hungers. Using the most up-to-date research, the authors show you how you can be free from compulsive eating, shame, addiction, and the past.
If you're ready to discover how your life and your body can be better than you thought they could be, you're ready for this transformative book.
"Our compelling desire to be loved and protected is a God-given hunger for intimacy and significance. When these needs are not met, we turn to counterfeits such as food, drugs, alcohol, or other compulsions in an attempt to fill the void. At some point we must admit that food is not the problem. The authors deal with real, beneath-the-surface reasons that we struggle with food. They stress the importance of meeting emotional and spiritual hunger. As these issues are resolved, perspective on food is gained and healthier living results."--Journal of Christian Nursing
