Made to Crave

Lysa Terkeurst

$21.99

Paperback
Just because a woman finally fits into her skinny jeans doesn't mean she's won her battle with food. Too often, women overlook the spiritual component to their physical struggle with healthy eating. Made to Crave taps into the desires God gave you to consume food without letting food consume you!

Made to Crave is the missing link between a woman's desire to be healthy and the spiritual empowerment necessary to make that happen. The reality is we were made to crave. Craving isn't a bad thing. But we must realize God created us to crave more of him. Many of us have misplaced that craving by overindulging in physical pleasures instead of lasting spiritual satisfaction. If you are struggling with unhealthy eating habits, you can break the "I'll start again Monday" cycle, and start feeling good about yourself today. Learn to stop beating yourself up over the numbers on the scale. Discover that your weight loss struggle isn't a curse but rather a blessing in the making, and replace justifications that lead to diet failure with empowering go-to scripts that lead to victory. You can reach your healthy weight goal - and grow closer to God in the process. This is not a how-to book. This is not the latest and greatest dieting plan. This book is the necessary companion for you to use alongside whatever healthy lifestyle plan you choose. This is a book and Bible study to help you find the "want to" in making healthy lifestyle choices.

More than just a weight loss book
5 stars By Sam, Dec 12 2014
I have been a fan of Lysa's teachings for a while and was so excited when I found out she had a "diet" book! Well, Made to Crave is WAY more than just a weight loss book with tips and tricks to losing weight... It is about our craving for intimacy with God and allowing Him o satisfy those needs which draw us to that bar of chocolate... Lysa writes with grace and humour and encourages you as a sister! You will gain a lot more than a smaller waist size with this book (and it's accompanying devotional, sold separately). We are Made to Crave God!

Craving in Perspective
5 stars By Jessica R. Wakefield, Jul 05 2012
I've never read any books on losing weight, I've never dieted. I never really believed in dieting, figuring that eating well and indulging every now and then was okay. So why did I decide to read a book on weight loss? Well for the most part I kept liking the cover! It just kept catching my eye and I knew I wanted to investigate it more. Then I read the back of the book and knew I probably should buy it, but I didn't. Over the weeks the cover would keep popping up in my mind and I'd want to buy it again. I still didn't buy it though!

Slowly something started happening. Something you guys need to know is that over the past three years I've been able to attend a small outdoor training group led by my friend who just happens to be a personal trainer. So over these three years I have been exposed to better ways to exercise and manage my health (notice I did not say weight). So always in the back of my mind was the thought "I can lose weight if I want to" as I had been taught a lot of the tools needed for this from the training sessions. However I never took up those tools consistently.

However, lately I discovered a real love of running. When my friend offered training sessions focused on running (technique, pacing etc) I jumped at the chance. So I started running once a week at each session. That was it. Then this book kept popping up in my head again. So this time I went purposefully to Koorong and bought it. By the end of the first chapter I was crying. The girl Lysa TerKeurst was describing in the book was me. Whether I liked it or not I had issues with emotional eating and my cravings for food with little to no self-control.

In this book Lysa gently and humorously walks women through, and challenges us to remember that we were Made to Crave God - not food or anything else we might chase after. Lovingly, Lysa used her own journey with struggling with weight and emotional eating to overcoming her "cravings" by realizing she needs God more than she needs that 5 minute satisfaction that a plate of brownies will give her.

This book is about growing closer to God by surrendering our need to crave food to him. Lysa doesn't just end there, she literally walks her readers through every step of the "surrendering my food issues" to God. She equips us with sound, practical and Biblical ways to overcome the food that hold us back.

There is more I can say, but I will leave it for here now. One final thing though: This book is way more than just about losing weight - it's about turning our lives over to God with powerful results, inside and out!
