Item description for Get Thin, Stay Thin: A Biblical Approach to Food, Eating, and Weight Management by Judy Wardell Halliday & Arthur W. Halliday...
Overview Get Thin, Stay Thin addresses the real reason we struggle with eating problems: we try to use food to satisfy our souls. As the Hallidays explain, we all crave intimacy, security, and acceptance. When these needs are not met, we often turn to substitutes such as food. The Hallidays go beyond trendy, short-term weight-control plans and urge readers to allow God to satisfy their deepest hungers. Anyone who has struggled with weight loss will benefit from this honest and thorough look at getting beyond the guilt and the ups and downs of yo-yo dieting.

Finally, a way to lose weight permanently! May 1, 2009
Excellent book that makes you take a good, long, hard look at yourself. I've done most of the diets and I've put all I lost on each right back on - and more. This is a simple book that makes you ask yourself, "Now, why didn't I come up with that?" It makes you see what you didn't really want to see about yourself and that's just how `food crazy' we are. In the section about bathroom scales it gave an example of how we react to a few added pounds. We get down in the mouth and convince ourselves our diet isn't working so we turn to food. When we step on the scale and it shows a few pounds lost - we reward ourselves with an ice cream sundae. Either way we turn to food and guess what.......
I would call the book a good basic training course on how to improve your own discipline when food is involved. What you learn is not automatic and takes practice, practice, practice. In that you can eat anything you want it's worth the practice. If you ever get serious about losing weight and keeping it off, read this book!
Life-changing Dec 30, 2008
This book can change your life. It is more a Bible study/Self-Help guide that causes us to gently examine - hopefully with God's help - why we eat past full...why we hide in our weight, what might be at the root of our self-destructive behavior, and then to gracefully, gently correct it. This isn't a "diet" book. It's not about calories, exercise, and fat counting. It's a book for those of us who are beyond that. We've done all the programs, starved, binged, hated on ourselves, etc. Now we need more. It's probably not a substitute for a counselor, and it's not a quick fix, but boy it's an awesome book, well-written, compassionate, and kind. If you are looking for a boot camp method to lose weight, this isn't it. If you are bruised, broken, and about to resign yourself to a lifetime of being fat, this is for you.
