Fulfilled: Let Go of Shame, Embrace Your Body, and Eat the Food You Love
(as of Oct 29,2021 08:32:50 UTC – Details)
Today’s culture has distorted the way we women view our bodies. We are hyper-critical, obsessed with weight loss, and distracted by the countless advertisements we see to eat, exercise, and dress differently. But God does not call you to be thinner or to follow a perfectly clean diet plan. Rather, God longs for you to embrace your body, eat with freedom, and live with a deep sense of confidence that you (and your body) are loved exactly as you are. In Fulfilled, nutrition expert Alexandra MacKillop explores physical, mental, and spiritual health through a non-diet lens, encouraging you to respect your body, honor your hunger, and embrace the unique size and shape that God created for you.
Fulfilled provides tangible steps toward changing your beliefs about food and your body. After examining the ways dieting harms a person’s physical and spiritual health, the book lays out a more intuitive framework for eating that emphasizes mindfulness, satisfaction, and surrender. As you learn to embrace your body, you’ll be set free from the fear of losing control. As you grow in your understanding of God’s love for you and your natural shape, you’ll be released from the shame of not conforming to a certain physical type. As you develop your knowledge of intuitive eating, you’ll realize that you can love and eat foods of all types. With Alexandra as your guide, you’ll learn how to enjoy food without sabotaging your fitness goals, honor the unique body God created for you, and live out a life of love and freedom–all under the umbrella of grace.
