NEW ORLEANS - Jan. 17, 2018 - PRLog -- Do you have an addiction to dieting, an addiction to food, and a resistance to regular, moderate exercise? Harrelson and her husband understand these seemingly hopeless strongholds and suffered with them for long decades, despite their love for their faith and success in other life areas. In her book, "FORGET HOW TO BE FOOD ADDICTED", she shares with you her ultimate surrender in this area and how God has delivered her forever from food addiction and the miserable dieting roller coaster. Unfortunately, Al passed away at the age of 52 from a lifetime of obesity-related heart and blood pressure causes. Pam's obstacles were not overcome permanently through the "strength of the surgery alone" and they never are for any patient. The surgery gives a wonderful and long "time out" to regain mental stability and make physical changes in habits. Some patients take advantage of this "time out" and some don't.

"Weight maintenance begins with the mind, not with a diet, and certainly not with a scalpel on the operating table," Harrelson writes.

We celebrate sensational weight loss stories, but lifetime weight maintenance receives scarce attention in the media." Harrelson is in a small category of post-op patients from the 1990's who have maintained their weight loss. The maintenance number has grown much larger as clinics become "real" in a patient's need for change.

Harrelson practices moderation in an exercise regime and convinces the reader of that in this book– no throwing up, passing out or crying!

Harrelson capitalizes on how the results of the surgery should jump start a brand new way of thinking about food, health and exercise. She is against rapid weight loss, as explained in her Genetics and Metabolism Chapter, by experts. This is counterproductive to weight maintenance. She has also included a chapter on How to Find a Personal Trainer and what do they do? The book ends with a helpful Appendix listing more expert help.

During the recovery phase of her second surgery in 1995, (after her stoma stretched prematurely), Harrelson had a revelation from God that opened her up to the possibility of losing the weight and keeping it off through consistent, moderate, results-oriented exercise and an ample number of calories, embracing a slow weight loss.

Harrelson strongly believes that there is no miracle diet, pill, or surgery. "FORGET HOW TO BE FOOD ADDICTED" shows readers how to recapture the joy of eating, moving and living without guilt, pain or fear. God does not condemn, but rather uses conviction, and never gives up on us! Be encouraged in this book that "God is For You, no matter where you are in this struggle!"
