Book Review- Love Food and Live Well

Love Food and Live Well
By: Chantel Hobbs

This book is not my normal Christion Fiction that I read so often.  This book was all about Losing Weight and get fit in a way that pleases God.  
The first section of the book was about why it is important that weight loss be a commitment to God.  Chantel shares her personal struggles with weight loss, her yo yoing dieting ups and downs.  Then she describes an event that lead her to giving her weight loss to the Lord and committing to loss weight with God's help and guidance.  I like how this book is laid out the first section as mentioned above talks about committing yourself to the lord and figuring out what your deal is, what is keeping you from weight loss.  This section is very motivating to get up and get moving.  Then the book goes on to lay out an eating plan.  It educates you on the food your body need and why.  I learned more about the way the food works from this book then I ever had.  Her guide line for a happy balance is 80/20 80% of the food you eat should be for health reasons only and 20% be the food you love.  The book also has a section on fitness and exercise.  This section includes several great exercises that can be done right at home.  Chantel says in this section that "Exercising is as important as brushing your teeth."  It is a must to healthy weight loss and maintaining the loss.  
I really enjoyed this book I thought it was laid out in an easy to read manner and I learned a lot about the foods I need to eat for healthy living.  
I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
