Food is both a great gift from our good Creator and a terrible taskmaster that keeps many of us in perpetual bondage. Asheritah invites us to break free from food fixation, to honor God and enjoy Him in our food choices, and to find true satisfaction in the fullness of His grace.

Equal parts practical and inspiring, Asheritah balances the perfect blend of soulful encouragement and real-life application. Diving straight into the heart of the matter, Full is a book any woman who has struggled with a food fixation needs to read.

It is embarrassing. While much of the world struggles to find enough food every day, many of us compulsively eat way beyond the point of being full – and we obsess about what we will eat next. The reasons for this food fixation, as Asheritah Ciuciu so compellingly demonstrates, are deeply spiritual and social. Ciuciu does not give easy answers. Her captivating style of writing immediately draws you into her story and the stories of others who share the struggle of food obsession.
This is not a simple book on how to eat right and lose weight. Her fine research into the psychology of food fixation and the biblical and spiritual roots of this preoccupation is captivating.
But she doesn’t stop there. She surveys the biblical perspective of God’s gift of food and how to celebrate and serve others with food.
An incredibly uplifting and hope-filled book, it is perfect for group study including discussion questions, assessment, and reflections.

As a Christian counselor I am constantly reading and lining my bookshelves with helpful resources for current and future clients. I searched for many years to find a resource that holistically addressed the topic of food addiction (fixation) to no avail. After reading Full, I am convinced that it is the resource I have been needing and a vital resource for all Christian counselors to help individuals and groups break free from food fixation and grow deeper in their walk with Christ. Asheritah compels readers to explore and uncover the spiritual and emotional roots of food fixation while also providing practical application steps towards health and wholeness. Full is refreshingly honest and compassionately convicting, addressing a topic that I have yet to hear preached from the pulpit in 20 plus years of regular church attendance and yet one that every soul is hungry to hear. Whether you believe you or someone you love struggles with food fixation or not, this book will challenge you to seek Christ above all else and find sustaining satisfaction in Him alone.

That is what Asheritah Ciuciu has done in the pages of Full. As readers follow along on her journey to understand each misplaced craving, they can’t help but come face to face with the only One who can ever truly satisfy their own deep hunger!
