Overview

What's the real reason we struggle with eating problems? We try to use food to satisfy our souls. As the Hallidays explain, we all crave intimacy, security, and acceptance. When these needs are not met, we often turn to substitutes such as food and engage in what the authors call "disordered eating." The Hallidays go beyond trendy, short-term weight-control plans and urge readers to allow God to satisfy their deepest hungers. Anyone who has struggled with weight loss or an eating disorder will benefit from this honest and thorough look at getting beyond the guilt and the ups and downs of yo-yo dieting. This revised and expanded edition offers readers updated information throughout and includes more study questions.
