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!

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!
