Slim for Him Kreml 1978 Who doesn’t love the cover of the women walking through the clouds (or is that whipped cream?) This book is full of scripture and inspiration to keep your head in the game as you diet
Dieting for Jesus
More of Jesus, Less of Me
Cavanaugh and Forseth
Here we have another gem from the popular Christian dieting section. Remember that the Devil makes you fat!
This book is more confessional/scripture lesson than a specific diet. See the “contract” below. Obviously Satan is behind this awfulness of being fat. The author’s life is a series of awfulness beginning with teen pregnancy, miscarriages, stillbirth, alcoholic husband, and probably more that I don’t remember. It was like reading a month of Lifetime movies in one book.
The Devil Makes You Fat
“Help Lord-The Devil Wants Me Fat!”
Naturally, every library has its share of diet/health books. They go in and out of fashion more than, well, fashion. This book takes the extra added bonus of blaming Satan. Evidently Satan sits on the Hellmouth with a big plate of cookies tempting all of us into the abyss of fat and calories. One of the big ideas in this book is about fasting. Obviously not a new concept in religious practice. However, the advice about fasting is a little too cavelier about a doctor’s advice. He doesn’t even mention particular health issues where fasting might be problematic.
