The Fractured Life of 3743: A Journey to Redemption

The Fractured Life of 3743

The Fractured Life of 3743: A Journey to Redemption
Rob Cabitto
Beaver’s Pond Press
Minneapolis, MN

The life of 3743 is a journey, beginning with tragedy, addiction and culminating in redemption born out of desperation.

Rob Cabitto’s story of his fractured life being redeemed is a powerful and cautionary tale of how a life can go horribly wrong. When Rob was five, he was put up for adoption because of the severe addictions of his parents. As is often the case, these early hardships helped to make the man who he is today. Rob tells what it was like to live untethered to any spiritual, tribal or social belief system—and the consequences associated with an amoral lifestyle. He describes exactly what it was like to be homeless, penniless and jobless, with nowhere to go but down. However, what he believed to be his bottom was only a temporary stopping point. He had yet to fall further, and for many years, lived in the abyss of a life without meaning or direction.

This story is about overcoming immense obstacles as a child, the bad choices he made as a young adult and into adulthood, and the resilience of the human spirit. A Fractured Life Redeemed is insightful, captivating and has a universal message for all those who have been hopeless or lost—and that message is hope…

Weight-Loss Apocalypse : Emotional Eating Rehab Through the HCG Protocol

Weight-Loss Apocalypse

Weight-Loss Apocalypse: Emotional Eating Rehab Through the HCG Protocol
Robin Phipps Woodall
AuthorHouse

“This book was written to start a new conversation about how Dr. Simeons’ protocol has relevance, not only as a hormonal therapy, but as a means to end our national eating disorder. Instead of continuing to apply the protocol as a short-term diet, it shoulder be discussed as a real solution –a tool to end irrational eating for emotional fulfillment. This country is dealing with a crisis: an addiction to eating emotionally, and the obvious result is the overwhelming increase in obesity.
Think about the number of people in our culture who eat without hunger. When you observe our nation’s behavior with food, it’s very clear that fat isn’t what we should be obsessed about, and weight shouldn’t be the target of the problem. We need a genuine desire to eat less, one that isn’t dependent on weight loss as a reward. This requires each of us to be accountable for our own emotions, and find happiness in life not centrally stimulated by food.
