Transform your Body-Not Impossible with God
January 13, 2014
Does your Bible have a secret panel to hide candy bars? Is your freezer stuffed with ice cream? Does your car automatically turn into every fast food restaurant? Do you have "stinkin' thinkin'" when it comes to your body image? The New Year is here. No more putting it off till "tomorrow"!
This year, with God as your partner, make a solemn resolution to get your eating under control, and begin a new, healthier lifestyle. Quite possibly, you will even lose that extra weight.
This is not a get-thin-quick diet book! There are no gimmicks or crazy diets inside. No pre-packaged food to buy, no tasteless recipes included, no starvation-by-smoothies! In this book are Biblically based answers that will help you to understand, develop, and stay the course on a new way of living. Begin by learning your "food triggers" - foods that you can't just have one of, that cause you to binge, eat poorly, or gain weight. Using personal examples and years of clinical experience, Dr. Epstein delves into the reasons why we become addicted to food. Dr. Rhona Epstein is a recovered food addict! She's been where you are, and has successfully overcome! Dr. Epstein shows you how to get your body in order using common-sense solutions. But getting your body in order it is not enough. For a transformation that lasts, you must also get your mind and soul in order. Using Biblical references, Dr. Epstein shows you how to do that by: taking captive the all storms in your life; by going to God in prayer; and by seeing yourself through the eyes of a loving God.
It's not rocket science. Included is a test to determine whether you have a food addiction or a "dysfunctional relationship" with certain foods. Using real food that you purchase at the grocery store, Dr. Epstein shows you how to develop a personalized, tailor-made food plan to help you overcome your Ã¢â¬Ëfood triggers," and how to stay committed to your plan. There is also a wonderful chapter on eating out, with realistic examples for staying on track. Each chapter includes a "Trigger Talk" section with useful tips, tools, and Scripture to help you understand your transformation process.
I found the last chapter, "Writing a New Story" especially insightful. Thank God, His promises are new every morning! (Lamentations 3:23 NIV).
What are you waiting for? God's promises can help you to write a new story. This book will walk you through the minefield of your food addictions & cravings. By yourself, it may seem impossible, but with God, all things are possible. (Matthew 19:26 NIV).
