Full: Food, Jesus and the Battle for Satisfaction by Asheritah Ciuciu

A lot of us struggle with food. We will search for the newest diet plan or way to lose weight, but all the while, missing the true, underlying cause of what is the root cause...we are unsatisfied in our relationship with God. In Full: Food, Jesus and the Battle for Satisfaction by Asheritah Ciuciu the reader is encouraged to address the fact that their true struggle with food isn't caused by the food itself, but is a longing that needs to be filled with a relationship with God and Jesus.

I have to say that through all of the books that I have read related to weight, food, and the issues that come from those things, this was one of the best out there. I could completely relate to Ciuciu and loved how open and honest she was about her own struggles and life when it comes to the subject of food. She knows exactly how you feel and can be a shoulder to lean on as you walk through this part of your life towards food freedom. Food issues can be overcome and Ciuciu offers that small spark of hope that will light a fire in you to address the true reason for your food issues, and encourage you to work on your relationship with God to fill the spot that you were using food to fill.

The part that I love the most about this book, besides the fact that she is always pointing you back to your bible, God and your relationship with Christ, is that once you are done reading, you are not left alone. Ciuciu offers a plethora of resources online that you can help keep yourself on the right path, along with the conversation questions that you can either use for journaling time, or to help you create a community of other women who can become your accountability partners and be there for you when you need them. Yes, you can always turn back to your book, but creating a community around this book would be a wonderful help and encouragement.

I throughly enjoyed this book and highly suggest it as one of THE books to read about God, food, and your struggles. It's definitely a much read, but a slow read. There is so much in this small book that I suggest you take your time and work through it slowly. Trust me, it's worth it!
