Pamela K Orgeron about this book: Are you tired of "Yo-Yo" Dieting? Have you been diagnosed with an eating disorder? Do you have or work with children who struggle with body image or eating issues? Are your attitudes and behaviors towards food interfering with your Christian witness? If you answered "yes" to any of the above questions, then Food as an Idol: Finding Freedom from Disordered Eating is for you. The best-selling book for ABC's Ministries, this book offers hope and practical methods to overcome disordered eating. The book was born out of my own struggle with food and body image issues throughout my childhood and young adult years. Not only does Food as an Idol offer tips to overcoming disordered eating, but the book includes a section on the prevention of disordered eating. Often parents unintentionally set children up for eating disorders by using food as rewards and punishment. Such unhealthy practices of parents are covered throughout the book, as well as ways that schools and churches can help fight the obesity and disordered eating epidemic in America and around the world. The key point in overcoming and finding freedom from disordered eating that is stressed throughout Food as an Idol is to recognize both over and under eating as a symptom of something missing deeper within the heart of an individual and as a barrier between his or her relationship with God. Not until one discovers the roots of disordered eating and surrenders his or her appetites to God can one find true freedom and deliverance from disordered eating.
