Put down that doughnut. If your weight or your spouse's weight is causing problems in your marriage, counselor and relationship expert Dr. Gary Smalley's Food and Love is packed with appetizing ideas for making changes in nutrition and relationships. His integrated approach, addressing spiritual, emotional, and physical health, overflows with practical tips for personal application. A set of quizzes in the front section of the book helps pinpoint where improvement is possible, and other information is broken down into bite-sized, manageable chunks, such as "Ten ways to extend grace when weight is an issue for you and your spouse," or a section of often-asked questions paired with Smalley's answers. Crucial to weight loss is the notion that "you need God's strength and power to make changes you can never make on your own," Smalley writes. The spiritual component and gentleness of tone in this book are inviting, and distinguish it from other diet books. Smalley's workable suggestions, paired with personal revelations about his own mistakes in weight control and relationships, make for engrossing, life-changing reading. --Cindy CrosbyAbout the Author:
