I just finished up this book and I really enjoyed it. I am a big fan of Chantel Hobbs. I read her first book Never Say Diet over a year ago and it totally changed the way I view losing weight. This book is no different. I have read tons of weight loss books and hers by far is my favorite. Her writing style is easy to read...like you are her best friend and she's merely giving you some weight loss advice. About 10 years ago, Chantel found herself at 350 lbs and at the end of her rope. She surrendered her battle to the Lord and He helped her to change her life one step at a time. She has kept the weight off all this time and is now using what she has learned throughout her journey to help others. She doesn't teach a lose-10 lbs-by-tomorrow sort of plan, but a lifestyle change through good old exercise and healthy eating. Her book contains information about calorie counting, recipes, body types, and even exercises (with pictures!) to help you as you start your own weight loss journey. This is a great read for anyone who is wanting to lose weight and live a healthier life. I found it so encouraging!
In addition to teaching readers about the physical aspects of weight loss and living a healthy lifestyle, Chantel also teaches the importance of inviting God into your journey. God created food for us to enjoy, so why should we feel guilty about enjoying our meals? Of course, we must use reason and self-control when eating so we don't self-sabotage our efforts to lose weight. Through this book, Chantel teaches us that we really can Love Food & Live Well!
