It arrived quickly. I am halfway through the book. So far, I find it encouraging and it has helped reveal some lies and negative thoughts I didn?t realize I was allowing. It is giving me a lot to think about and practical ideas.

About This Item
What does the Bible say about food struggles?
Whether the struggle is with excess weight, unwanted cravings, total control, or extreme diets, we all have a relationship with food. In fact, many of us are so consumed with this aspect of our lives that we’ve developed a food fixation. Our obsessive thoughts about food, about what to eat and when, may be signaling a deeper spiritual issue.
Whatever your relationship with food, Full can open your mind and heart to surprising spiritual truths and free you to approach food rightly. Unpacking a theology of food and sharing stories of women who have overcome food fixation, Asheritah Ciuciu helps readers engage this issue in a practical and holistic way.
Full reveals12 biblical principles that can break the power of food and free us to taste and see that God is good.
Can the Bible help me with my food struggles?
Have you ever felt stuck in a seemingly endless cycle of overeating, yo-yo dieting, and obsessive thoughts about food?
Whether you feel defeated by your lack of self-control or overwhelmed by thoughts and longings for food, the answer to our food fixation does not lie in the $500 billion global diet industry.
This is not a diet book and it’s not a healthy eating plan. Because at the core, our problem is not really what we eat. It’s why we seek fullness in something that will never satisfy.
Join Asheritah Ciuciu as she shares honestly about her own battles with food and reveals the path to freedom. You’ll discover the joy of living free from food fixation so you can experience deeper satisfaction in Christ, gain a renewed sense of purpose, and yes, even enjoy good food (without regret).
A healthier relationship with food through a stronger relationship with Christ—that’s the goal of Full.
Includes a quiz to help you find out if you have food fixation, plus practical strategies for overcoming it.

still reading, but so far loving it.
I was surprised how mu...
I was surprised how much of this book spoke directly to me and where I could say "Me too!"Asheritah has done a great job of approaching the topic of food fixation from a Biblical and practical perspective, with lots of examples from her own personal experience. Food in itself is not a bad thing, but when you spend too much time focussing on food, then it can become a problem in your life.It was the sort of book that provided so much food for thought that I will be revisiting it regularly during the upcoming year. I was challenged in my justifications for my unwise eating choices. One of my favourite sections is the 'Ten Lies about Food' section, where I am pretty sure I've told myself most of them at one time or another. I think my most common one would be "If a little is good, a lot is better!".. and which from experience is not true and leads to post-binging regret.I was constantly encouraged that it is possible to change and no longer be fixated with food. Asheritah brings a spiritual aspect into the discussion about food by emphasising that an unhealthy fixation on anything (food, sport, work, drugs, alcohol, etc) is merely a physical replacement for the spiritual fulfillment found in a personal relationship with God. And the only way to overcome this is to prioritise that spiritual relationship over your physical choices / addiction. Giving up your food fixation is not the solution if you just turn to another physiclal solution, which cannot satisfy spiritually. The last couple of chapters challenged me about the influence my food choices have on others, in particular when I provide others with food at church events or work. For example, in chapter 10, she quotes a study which found that church-going young adults were 50% more likely than their non-church-going peers to be obese by middle-age. Does the food I make others encourage them in healthy eating habits or undermine their self-discipline? I highly recommend this book to anyone who struggles in their relationship with food, whether a temptation to overindulge in sweets or a fixation on making healthy choices.
