All things bookish!

The Back of the Book: Craving isn’t a bad thing.

Has food become more about frustration than fulfillment?  Made to Crave is the missing link between a woman’s desire to be healthy and the spiritual empowerment necessary to make that happen.  Author Lysa TerKeurst personally understands the battle that women face.  In Made to Crave, she will help you:

  • Break the cycle of ‘I’ll start again on Monday,’ and feel good about yourself today.
  • Stop agonizing over numbers on the scale and make peace with your body.
  • Replace rationalizations that lead to failure with wisdom that leads to victory.
  • Reach your healthy goals and grow closer to God through the process.

This book is not a how-to manual or the latest, greatest dieting plan.  Made to Crave is a helpful companion to use alongside whatever healthy eating approach you choose – a book and Bible study to help you find the ‘want to’ in how to make healthy lifestyle changes.

NotJustLaura’s Review: I do not lie when I tell you that I have tried just about every approach to dieting known to man.  Travelling between the Christian and the secular dieting worlds, I’ve fasted, avoided carbs, counted Syns and eaten ‘until comfortably full’.  And I’ve felt like a failure in each case.

Ms TerKeurst’s book is different and certainly the most inspirational I’ve come across.  She doesn’t offer menu plans.  She doesn’t dictate and she doesn’t lecture.  Instead, she shares her dieting story with the reader and offers positive and affirming advice which, I think, one could use in many situations – not just when faced with a double choc muffin.

This is a book whose effects are staying with me – minus the 6lbs of flab it has helped me to shed.
