Setting Boundaries® with Food
Six Steps to Lose Weight, Gain Freedom, and Take Back Your Life
For the fourth book in her popular Setting Boundaries™ series, Allison Bottke turns to our relationship with food, and a problem that affects more than 200 million Americans (68 percent of the adult population)—obesity.
Setting Boundaries® with Food is a very personal book for Allison. She knows from personal experience about the struggle against obesity—feeling trapped in a seemingly never-ending cycle of dieting, deprivation, and despair. At one time in her life, Allison’s scale hit the 300-pound mark. Her overweight status resulted in Allison being the first full-figure model ever signed by the prestigious Wilhelmina modeling agency, where she worked for some of the biggest names in fashion, such as Gloria Vanderbilt and Alfred Angelo.
From her struggle, Allison offers more than just hope for the future. By introducing readers to her popular S.A.N.I.T.Y. steps, she encourages readers to turn away from the insanity of dieting and deprivation and to focus instead on establishing healthy relationships with food, self, others, and God. Her words will strike a chord with millions who have struggled for years to lose weight as they are encouraged to examine the emotional and spiritual aspects of their bondage to food and obsession with weight.
“...if you’re ready to lose weight, gain freedom, and take back your life, this resource is for you.”
“…[You will] feel encouraged to keep on your path to healthy living.”
“This program will appeal to Christians who want to address the underlying causes of emotional overeating. Gaining greater awareness and control of your emotions and eating behaviors can result in a permanent weight loss solution.”
“Allison has done it again! Her latest book hits us all where it hurts (with a firm but gentle kindness) as we struggle with food/weight issues. Her treatment of this difficult subject, based on personal experience, is not to batter the food-extremists in our world but to, in a Christ-like manner, address the problem with great spiritual insight and optimism. I totally recommend this book by a superb writer and lovely lady who wants to help us all.”

“As one who struggled with food issues for a decade, I am pleased to endorse Allison Bottke's new book, Setting Boundaries with Food. I wish I'd read her advice thirty years ago when I needed it! She is correct. The problem is not really about food after all—but about our relationship with ourselves and with God. Buy a copy for yourself and one for a friend. Then support each other in applying the author's six steps to sanity.”
