A Battle With The Flesh
Dr. Hancock's fourth Godly Affirmations CD, "A Battle With The Flesh."

  battle with the flesh 

Would you like to beat those childlike, fleshly impulses that compel you to eat when you're not hungry?

Dr. Hancock's fourth Godly Affirmations CD, "A Battle With The Flesh," is coming soon!

In Dr. Hancock's Godly Affirmations CDs, you are continually reminded of God's love, mercy, and truth, and that automatically helps you to think more positively the rest of the time. When you think positively and in line with the truth of God, you feel positive. Thus, you feel less stress, and that helps you overcome stress-eating and other forms of emotional eating.

"Positive thinking helps with stress management and can even improve your health. Overcome negative self-talk by recognizing it and practicing (positive thinking)"
-The Mayo

Dr. Rita secures a book publishing contract with Zondervan!

A Note from Dr. Rita
  Dr. Rita Hancock 

Hello, fellow Eden Dieters! I'm very excited to tell you about the changes coming to the Eden Diet program in the Winter of 2009. As you may know, the book is going to be re-released by Zondervan, a Christian book publishing company, with a projected release date of December, 2009. Among the changes to the program will be a new book cover and web design. However, the content of the book will remain largely unchanged, except for a very few additions and clarifications. That means if you purchased an older version of the book and workbook with the lime-green cover the image of Eve, there is probably no need for you to purchase the next edition, unless you're starting a workshop and want to have the same book as the rest of the group.
During this sixty to ninety days of transition, please visit my blog by clicking on the "blog" button at the top of the home page of the website. You will find many helpful and supportive articles there, and I will continue to make entries into my blog through this transition period. I will keep you posted regarding which national Christian television shows will be featuring me as a guest expert for weight loss, coinciding with the release of the next edition. 
May God bless you with excellent health and freedom from bondage to food!
~Dr. Rita

Dr. Rita lectured on weight loss at the national meeting of the Christian Medical and Dental Association (CMDA) on Saturday, September 26, 2009. Well over one hundred physicians packed in for a standing-room-only lecture, and her books sold out of the CMDA bookstore within minutes of the end of the lecture.
Dr. Rita is the Oklahoma State Representative in the CMDA's House of Representatives, and is also a member of the CMDA's female subgroup, Women in Medicine and Dentistry.
