From the Back Cover
Made to Crave is the missing link between a woman's desire to be healthy and the spiritual empowerment necessary to make that happen. The reality is we were made to crave. Craving isn't a bad thing. But we must realize God created us to crave more of him. Many of us have misplaced that craving by overindulging in physical pleasures instead of lasting spiritual satisfaction. If you are struggling with unhealthy eating habits, you can break the 'I'll start again Monday' cycle, and start feeling good about yourself today. Learn to stop beating yourself up over the numbers on the scale. Discover that your weight loss struggle isn't a curse but rather a blessing in the making, and replace justifications that lead to diet failure with empowering go-to scripts that lead to victory. You can reach your healthy weight goal -- and grow closer to God in the process. This is not a how-to book. This is not the latest and greatest dieting plan. This book is the necessary companion for you to use alongside whatever healthy lifestyle plan you choose. This is a book and Bible study to help you find the 'want to' in making healthy lifestyle choices.

I personally could not sustain the diet she herself follows at the suggestion of her nutritionist (No bread, pasta, rice, corn, potatoes, or sugar. Ever.). It would set me off on a crazed binge. Not that she suggests we follow her diet, but to ask God what He wants us to eat, and to follow that.
She has many, many nuggets of wisdom throughout the book that encourage me and convict me.
One thing I don't really like is her overuse of the phrase, "Jesus girl." It's ok the first time or two, but I don't think it's really necessary to keep saying it. It sounds like when someone talks about themselves in the third person. However, I don't think it takes away from the book's message; it's not so bad I would remove a star from my review.
I highlighted and underlined so many, many parts of this book.
The hardest part for me is putting it all into practice. I'm so set in my food ways, it's going to take a lot of painful surrender on my part to allow God into those places where I have made food my comforter and joy, you know?
I will also tell you, that as a women's ministry co-director and Bible study facilitator, I was hesitant to do this particular study. I thought it wouldn't be enough Bible for a "Bible study". Lysa does a wonderful job taking us throughout God's word.
