Product Description

Synopsis

When life makes you crazy, reach for the chocolate: it's cheaper than therapy and you don't need an appointment. Beloved humor author Karen Scalf Linamen is back with her first new women's book in five years, and she's got a stash of sweet treats in her purse to share. Why do women choose comfort food when they are really craving something else? What if they could stop settling for second best and give their souls what they are really seeking? Would they be content? Perhaps they would glean a deeper understanding of their emotions. Most importantly, they might be able to get into their skinny jeans and stay there. With her trademark wit and insight, Karen Linamen helps women everywhere discover what they are really hungering for--and laugh out loud in the process.

I discovered this book by accident, I was searching for another book, but ended up purchasing and reading this one first. I could relate to it through and through, it gave me insight and strength in a very difficult time in my life. As far as a faith based book, it is pretty mild, so it does not offend or puts off people who are not looking for a religious input. I was not aware this book was from a Christian author, so it was a pleasant surprise. Looking forward to read other titles from this author.

HASH(0x9ef0a7e0) out of 5 stars A Great Book for a Book Club or Girl's Get-together 10 Jun. 2007
By Jennifer Donovan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Make some brownies and chocolate pie, and dig in to the food and the discussion questions.

Chocolatherapy is not about emotional binge eating or the excess weight that often comes along with it. The author, Karen Linamen, has battled both of these problems, but early on she reminds the reader that other women's cravings in response to stress include shopping, working out, surfing the net, or cleaning-anything that we do to excess to avoid our real problems.

Throughout the book, Ms. Linamen sprinkles nuggets of truth and encouragement regarding her own experiences with parenting, divorce, friendship, adult ADD, body piercing, and worry. Yes, I said body piercing. This book is written from a Christian perspective, but it is definitely not one of those "perfect-Christian woman" type of books that do not address the reality that many of the women (Christian or not) who read them are facing.

One reviewer thought she was "tricked" into buying it and didn't know it was a Christian book. I am a Christian, and there are some books that I would not recommend to someone who does not have a Christian faith or outlook. This is not one of those. I would recommend this one to anyone, because I don't think that she's preachy. When she mentions her faith, she is simply mentioning it as one of the ways that she found to satisfy that real deep craving.

HASH(0x9ef0a558) out of 5 stars What do the cravings actually mean? 12 Jan. 2009
By Rebecca of Amazon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Karen Scalf Linamen loves chocolate but she also has issues with binge eating. She also bounces checks, eats entire boxes of Girl Scout cookies and has to deal with ADD and at times clinical depression. Her appeal is that you can relate to her because she is so human. She's been through a painful divorce and is raising teenagers. Her life is filled with struggles and spiritual solutions.

This book is filled with chocolate trivia and quotes. There is also information about how you can gain weight if you don't get enough sleep. There is advice on how to melt chocolate but I'd not recommend a double boiler. That always causes my chocolate to "seize" up. It is much easier to melt chocolate (for when you make your own chocolates) in a crock-pot. I use that method when I make chocolate covered cherries.

While this book does focus a lot on chocolate the real issues seem to be about emotional issues and how we can solve them with God's love. At the end of the book there are letters from women who have real-life struggles with eating too much.

I do think problems with binge eating could be solved if women just didn't buy the sugary fatty foods in the first place! That is what I try to do but I'm human too and sometimes I don't do the right thing.

This book is all about how to do the right thing even when we fail time after time. This book should be encouraging to most women, especially if you love chocolate.

HASH(0x9ed70b04) out of 5 stars CRAVING CHOCOLATE ; ) 29 May 2007
By AJC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I really enjoyed Chocolatherapy! Linamen makes the book comically-witty and relatable. This is a good book for women who need guidance or self-assurance in their hectic day to day lives. Linamen also tells some easy ways to avoid the chocolate and junkfood and find a deeper meaning in stressful situations. If searching for an answer, this book will surely help you find out what your craving!

By Lynn - Published on Amazon.com

This book is neither a fluffy read nor a difficult one. It is written very conversationally and candidly making Karen seem like a girlfriend sharing her heart. I personally can't think of a nicer compliment. Good read!
