    One thought on “Love to Eat, Hate to Eat: Breaking the Bondage of Destructive Eating Habits”

    1. I bought this book because I have trouble saying no to sweets. I was really hoping it would help to illuminate what goes on in my spirit when I indulge in emotional eating, and it did. Although I do not have an eating disorder, I greatly benefitted from the way Fitzpatrick broke down how patterns of eating can be sin. The Scripture she used and the common sense she used was really helpful in identifying my own eating patterns that are sinful, and she does a good job of offering practical help fo [...]

    2. From the title you know the book is all about eating. Well, it is, but it's also about so much more. This helps you determine destructive eating habits and what causes them, even though you desire to be in control. If you truly struggle with food, this book takes the biblical approach to help you understand why food is such a big component of your life. Scriptures are provided throughout the book to help you along the way. You can really expect to be on the path to change once you begin reading [...]

    3. This book is written for anyone who has a difficult relationship with food (it is especially relevant for those who struggle with overeating & constant dieting, though it applies to those with clinical eating disorders as well)The author writes from personal experience with overeating / using food for comfort, pleasure, etc.While I don't relate to her specific struggles (I struggle with anorexic behavior), the underlying truth and wisdom of this book was still quite relevant to my heart. Som [...]

    4. Meaty, convicting, and hard hitting. Not sure whether I will actually have the discipline to put her principles into practice, but her analysis of the issues is spot-on. She keeps the gospel in view at all times and does a good job both challenging and encouraging the reader. The book targets women who struggle with sinful eating habits, but I would recommend this book to anyone--male OR female--who's ever wrestled with bringing any desire under the lordship of Christ.

    5. This book was great for helping to identify sin patterns in eating habits, but terrible at helping define what "godly" eating habits actually are. To me it felt like she swung from bondage to food to bondage to a bunch of legalistic practices, some of which aren't even good for you. Because of this, I can't recommend this book. The search for a good theology of health continues.

    6. I started reading this book with a few Sisters from church, and it has been incredibly encouraging. Elyse does an excellent job of bringing home the reality of food and sin for all people. She does speak to eating disorders specifically in one chapter, but as a whole she speaks to the heart of where we are as humans who tend to worship food. She does not mince words, but still speaks in a way that is kind and gracious. It is a very practical book whose principles can be applied to many areas of [...]

    7. Yes this is a book on food and dieting, but no, it is not a diet book. The Author's focus is not on getting her readers to finally kick that extra weight, or obtain that body that you see advertized all over our culture. She instead addresses the far more important matter of pleasing God and why it is good to give care to the keeping of the temple He has chosen to live in. This book doesn't just make rules of what or how much to eat, but gives guidelines to determine whether or not our hearts ar [...]

    8. This was the first book selected for a woman's book club formed out of a small group I attended that was comprised of middle aged, stay at home moms with school-aged children. I wasn't that excited about reading this book, as I don't really have any "food issues" but went along.Wow, I was really convicted about idolatry! Even if food is not mine, I certainly have plenty. I ended up getting a lot out of how this book was written, by reading it in parallel to issues I may actually have rather than [...]

    9. Easy to read, well organized, practical and insightful. This one is a must read for women. While I do disagree with some of the logic and philosophical conclusions she comes to, her point is sound and biblical. She addresses not only food/weight phobias, but also women who overeat or are overweight. She points out the idolatry in both under-eating, under-exercising and over-eating or over-exercising. I appreciated her balanced approach to health maintenance and her accessible application coupled [...]

    10. This was a good book that drives you back to the real reason for everything we do; the Glory of God. Eating is just one small part of how we can live all our lives for God's glory. She talks about sinful eating patterns but doesn't give any hard and fast rules (since the Bible doesn't). I found it helpful for myself to continually remember to thank God for my food, for the pleasure food brings, but to make sure I don't use it as a idol or take comfort from it when I need to take all my comfort i [...]

    11. There is much good truth in this book, however I must admit that I skimmed over much of it. It got to be a bit "legalistic" for me in that there were too many "rules" to govern the managing of weight. For some people, this is necessary. For me -- it is a danger, because I can get too caught up the outward manipulation of weight and lose sight of God and how He wants to lead me thru His created body signals. A useful resource for those who need those things until they can trust God more, though.

    12. This is not a good book. Elyse's theology has obviously taken a big turn since she wrote this and I don't recommend this book. Her later work is much better and more comforting. Basically the major error she makes in this book is trying to fix someone's failure at keeping the law with more law. No Gospel comforts to be found here ladies. She sticks the gospel in here and there but there is no connection between it and the law everywhere else in the book and therefore it becomes ineffective at he [...]

    13. Although the author writes for women I'm sure that men are at least as bad if not worse than women when it comes to self control in the area of eating at least judging by the external evidence.The writer provides an extensive case for the need for discipline in this as well as other areas as a fruit of the Spirit in the life of the Christian. She supports her case with extensive scripture references and careful application. Helpful practical tips are also included.

    14. Hugely convicting and beneficial for me--though I have never struggled with being overweight, I've absolutely had out-of-control eating habits and a sinful relationship to food. Elyse doesn't mince words, but she saturates the book with the gospel so that you're led from your sin to the beauty and mercy of God. I've revisited this more than once.

    15. I was about half way through this when my life got busier and I haven't picked it up since. While I don't have any of the three eating disorders this book is aimed towards (anorexia, bulimia, and obesity), I was impacted by it in several ways. Showing a God-focused, Biblical approach to food (and every other area of life), this book would be useful to most who read it.

    16. Though written to women, Elyse Fitzpatrick does a great job of outlining the spiritual battle that is behind our struggles with food. Very helpful. There are also some broadcasts with her that can be found on FamilyLife Today at familylifetoday. Search for past broadcasts by Elyse Fitzpatrick.

    17. A biblical view of a mindset towards food. It changed my world because it opened my eyes to see my sin in the area of food and it gave me hope to change. It is practical and good to read by yourself or with a friend!

    18. I started this book as part of a book club and while it started out good, I didn't have time for the book club and just haven't finished the book

    19. I was very encouraged when reading this book. I felt like the Lord was telling me to stop being lazy with my thought life and rigorously guard what I thought upon.

    20. The most Biblical view I have ever read about food and eating and the heart issues that surround them. Changed forever how I approach a meal.

    21. A friend is going to be starting a book club and this is the first book. Can't wait! She's my kind of gal! (and a left-hander!) Bought this for Kindle.
