About the Book

We realize now that diets don't work. Following diet rules is dysfunctional because it doesn't require a true change from within, what scripture calls transformation by the renewing of the mind. True change occurs from the inside out, through freedom from strongholds and emotional baggage that keep us chained to destructive eating patterns. If you are ready to be free to feel the full peace of God and stop using food for fulfillment, you need Soul Food. This book doesn't teach diet rules. Instead, it helps you identify destructive eating patterns that have formed strongholds in your mind, will and emotions. Through careful study and application of scriptural truths and recent scientific discoveries about the brain, registered dietitian Terri Lykins has created a program that teaches transformation and healing from a Biblical perspective. For so many Americans, weight issues are a symptom of a deeper hunger - a soul hunger that only God can satisfy. This book will show you, step by step, how to change from within, to be free from destructive eating patterns that keep you from advancing God's kingdom. With each new diet, I would lose weight, but soon found myself back in the same rut because I never learned how to deal with the emotional or spiritual side of it. Soul Food has helped me to develop a way of living that allows me to control my feelings and thoughts toward food, and be content in God instead of eating for emotional release! -Donna D., ITS Account Clerk Soul Food really helped me to see how I have used food to try to fill a void within. Through Soul Food I have learned to recognize strongholds, they are falling away, and I am becoming free. I have already lost 10 lbs. in the last two months! -Teresa B., Mental Health Professional
