Publisher's Summary

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.

Life Changing Book!

Would you consider the audio edition of Made to Crave to be better than the print version?

I have prefered listening to this book though I own a printed version as well because it's a tough subject for me. Being able to listen has been easier to do as it really has made me take a hard look at my own habits, never an easy subject, and begin to change them. Hearing it makes me feel like I have a partner to help me make some difficult changes for the better!


What did you like best about this story?

We all have excuses we use to justify behavior that is less than stellar, in this case, how we handle food issues. The author, Lisa, has used all the same excuses I've had myself. Seeing them in print or hearing them read aloud makes me realize how wrong they are and how much I've been lying to myself and BELIEVING the lies! With God's help I'm beginning to see them for what they are and am starting to see changes in my attitudes and behavior. And isn't that why we read a book like this?


Any additional comments?

I love this book because it's causing me to realize that my walk with God can be sweeter and more personal as I invite Him into my struggle with food issues. It's nourishing my soul as it improves my physical health. What a great combination! This book came highly recommended by two close friends and I'm so glad I took their advice and read it! You should too!

Makes you think

I really enjoyed this book. It made me think about a lot more than food in my life. Lysa mentions several different things in life that can have a hold on us, things that we wouldn't even consider a "craving". I love the thought that "I am not fat even though my body may be". Our body is the container for our spirit like a glass holding water or a pretty box holding a present! The important part of us is the inside yet we spend so much time focused on the outside. Balance in life is focusing on the inside but not neglecting the outside.
