Love Food & Live Well: Book Review

When I chose to review Love Food & Live Well, I expected to get a book about diet and fitness.  Chantel Hobbs writes about so much more than physical health.  Her book is about learning who you are in Christ and how that impacts your decisions about things like food choice, body image, and loving yourself.  This is her third book and it is obvious as a reader that they build on each other to make a great spiritual and physical wellness plan for men and women.

Hobbs is well-spoken and touches the heart of her readers.  She helps look at what is going on in the soul and mind that might make weight loss and healthy living difficult.  She gives great practical suggestions about how to face difficulties in our lives that make us rely on food instead of God. 

I found this book difficult to read, not because of the wording or the subject, but because I wanted to soak it all in.  This was a must - read - slowly book.  If I could tell Chantel one thing, I would like to thank her for sharing her personal story and inspiring others to achieve greatness and buy into God's deal for their lives.

I received this book free from WaterbrookMultinomah for the purpose of review.  All opinions are my own.
