Finally...a Permanent Weight-Loss Solution!

The easy-to-use 50-day format emphasizes both the physical and spiritual aspects of healthy living, inspiring positive habits and long-term lifestyle changes. Davis gives you:
* Life-changing information about the spirit-body connection
* Spiritual principles that treat the cause--not the symptoms--of weight gain
* Proven medical results experienced by participants in group programs Davis has led
The secrets to permanent weight loss lie in understanding the power of God to work miracles in your life--body, mind, and spirit.
It is time to stop dieting and start losing weight for good!

I had aquired a copy of her first edition and went on line to get more copies to share with family and friends, when I found this second edition book, that takes you on a 50 day journey for a new way of life to a healthy YOU.
I really enjoyed her first book "Spiritual Secrets to Weight Loss. It really inspired me to jump on the wagon and once and for all, now that I found a way to loose weight without all that fake food,etc.(You can loose weight with the right real food.)
I also learned by reading her books, what the steps were from the begining. I hate it when you don't get the whole picture before starting. This gives you insight to what the journey is about, and when you reach your weight goal, the journey goes on to maintain it. In that way I knew what was down the road, before I even started and that it would be a life time journey to a happier, healthy and more spiritual being. Which is what I have been reaching for, and wasn't making the progress I had hoped. Now I have the keys to keep me going on this journey.
Both books are worth the money, and this will be a way of life, forever. (Which I can LIVE with. I am also a 3rd generation diabetic.)
Dr. Davis has written this book in a way that the reader can understand. It is conversational, yet, not overwhelming with alot of medical terminology, yet factual. She quotes medical facts and most importantly, she reminds (or educates for some) that as Christians, we are responsible for maitaining the temples that the Lord has given us.
Unlike many books by (so called) weight loss, fitness, medical, and nutritional professionals, Dr. Davis does not divey out diet plans. She knows what is right for one may not be right for another, but rather, she attempts educate the reader in that health is a lifestyle change, not a one time diet or something one does every now and then.
The fact is that many conditions and diseases can be prevented. Thank you Dr. Davis for writing this book.
In Spiritual Secrets to Weight Loss, Dr. Davis does a fabulous job of weaving biblical truths into medically-sound facts and guidelines. As the title of the book suggests, it's through understanding the spiritual truths written in the Bible that are especially important to finding success with losing weight. If you desire to better appreciate the significance of spiritual matters of the Christian faith that contribute to losing weight, then I highly recommend this book.
