This is not one more “diet book”
among a multitude of diet books that tell you what to eat. This book teaches you
how to use prayer to strengthen your free will to nurture the attitudes and behaviors
that will result in weight reduction.
Right now you use food
to numb your emotional distress, and you fear that without using food and excess
body fat as psychological defenses your life will be nothing but empty pain.
Therefore, to overcome the habit of constantly reaching for
something to deaden your emotional pain, endeavor to teach yourself to act in new ways
through love. Recognize the urge to use food as a way to numb painful emotions, and
then return food to its proper place in your life: not as a psychological defense but
as a holy gift of nutrition.
In this way, your food will participate with you in a
divine mystery of love, rather than be reduced to a mere object of consumption.
If you follow the guidance within this book, you will be able
to say, “Thank You, Lord, for the grace to not use food to fill my craving for love.
In You, Lord, I am filled with all the fullness of divinity; there is no greater love
