My second book review is for the book Love Food & Live Well, by Chantel Hobbs. I really enjoyed this book! Since I am all about exercising and eating right, this book was right up my alley!
I love the way Chantel Hobbs writes. She doesn't write as an expert who's learned everything there is to know about diet and exercise and talks down to the reader. She writes as one who's "been there and done that." She is humble and candid about her own personal difficulties about food and weight loss. To

Chantel Hobbs wrote, “Never Say Diet,” published in 2008. Love Food & Eat Well follows that book. She wrote this book with the authority of two-hundred pounds lost and kept off for ten years.

Chantel doesn’t come to us with one more book that will “change your life” with a miracle diet based on giving up a food group. She only succeeded when she recognized her eating problem as a spiritual problem and went to the real life-changer. She gave her weight loss to God.

In the first half, the book

As I am one of those people who struggles with my desire to eat and lose weight this book appealed to me. I had not read Chantel Hobbs book “Never Say Diet” or been familiar with her as a personal trainer, marathon runner, wife and mother of four. She just doesn't tell you how to do it, she has been there and lost 200 pounds and has kept the weight off. She points out the a partnership with God allowing him to take control of your thoughts and eating is important for her plan to work. The first

Chantel Hobbs knows first-hand the pain of being morbidly obese. She also knows what it takes to take the weight off and keep it off. She shares that information in Love Food & Live Well.

Want a body image you can live with? If you're ready to commit to your own health, Chantel has a deal for you. Does weight loss have to be painful? On the contrary. Chantel maintains you can indulge in foods you love, but in the context of a balanced perspective.

With engaging style and heart-warming compass

Love Food & Live Well, by Chantel Hobbs, Waterbrook Press, 2010, Hardcover, 240 Pages, ISBN-13: 978-0307457844, $19.99

At this time of year families gather to celebrate Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years to prepare hearty traditional meals, give gifts and rejoice in the birth of Christ. The season is a festive happy time, but also a time of food temptations that test any weightwatcher’s self-discipline and resolve. For many the battle is lost before it begins and results in guilt, shattere

This was just an okay book. I saw it on the end shelf at the library and picked it up. I had never heard of the author before, but I always love reading about health, nutrition and exercise. The vast majority of this book focuses on God’s love for us and how only through our trust in Him can our lives fully change. I am a Christian and completely agree with that, but I felt like the title of this book suggested it was going to be about something different than it was. I felt like if Chantel Hobb ...more

This was an easy and enjoyable read. Although I don't struggle with a weight problem I do struggle with maintaining a healthy lifestyle balanced with good eating and exercise. I appreciate that this book is not about a new "diet" or setting a weight loss goal but rather about a life change and thought change. It is more an inspirational or encouraging book about the challenge of living a balanced life. I really enjoyed the author's candidness about her own struggle with self-esteem and weight an ...more
