Love Food & Live Well: Lose Weight, Get Fit & Taste Life at Its Very Best

Chantel Hobbs, WaterBrook, $19.99 (240p) ISBN 978-0-307-45784-4
Author and speaker Hobbs (Never Say Diet) has a story about dieting that will refute any number of doubting challenges to her plan for getting in shape and staying that way. Hobbs, who lost 200 pounds and has maintained that weight loss by changing the way she approaches food and life, offers anyone struggling with weight problems a different way of handling uncontrollable desires for food. With a friendly, breezy style, Hobbs engages readers first on an emotional level as she tells of her private pain as a morbidly obese woman, then smoothly transitions into helping individuals understand the whys and wherefores of their inner battle with edible comfort. The author's clear message of Christian spirituality will appeal especially to evangelicals, while her hard-fought battle with pounds will resonate with everyone. Hobbs's method is a friendlier, gentler approach to getting fit and fabulous. (Dec.)
