#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER, FOOD AND FITNESS A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER, SCIENCE
ONE OF THE "BEST DIETS 2016" (NPR'S THE SALT ) AND " 10 MOST EXCITING HEALTHY BOOKS TO READ IN 2016," ( WELL + GOOD )
Leading Harvard Medical School expert and "obesity warrior" ( TIME magazine) rewrites the rules on weight loss, diet, and health.
Forget everything you've been taught about dieting. In the New York Times bestseller ALWAYS HUNGRY?, renowned endocrinologist Dr. David Ludwig explains why traditional diets don't work, and presents a radical new plan to help you lose weight without hunger, improve your health, and feel great. For over two decades, Dr. Ludwig has been at the forefront of research into weight control. His groundbreaking studies show that overeating doesn't make you fat; the process of getting fat makes you overeat. That's because fat cells play a key role in determining how much weight you gain or lose. Low-fat diets work against you, by triggering fat cells to hoard more calories for themselves, leaving too few for the rest of the body. This "hungry fat" sets off a dangerous chain reaction that leaves you feeling ravenous as your metabolism slows down. Cutting calories only makes the situation worse-creating a battle between mind and metabolism that we're destined to lose. You gain more weight, even as you struggle to eat less food.

ALWAYS HUNGRY? turns dieting on its head with a three-phase program that ignores calories and targets fat cells directly. The recipes and meal plan include luscious high fat foods (like nuts and nut butters, full fat dairy, avocados, and dark chocolate), savory proteins, and natural carbohydrates. The result? Fat cells release their excess calories and you lose weight-and inches-without battling cravings and constant hunger. This is dieting without deprivation.

Forget calories. Forget cravings. Forget dieting. ALWAYS HUNGRY? reveals a liberating new way to tame hunger and lose weight . . . for good.

Wow- the first half of this book is like having a 2 by 4 applied to your skull.
But it can be skimmed and dipped. And then he supplies the nuts and bolts of his diet, which by the way, he summarizes as a soft-core high-fat/low carb diet.
I'm trying it- no luck yet.
One niggle: if low-carb is so much better, how come longevity stats show that Mediterranean/Okinawan diet eaters live longest?

I think I will be buying this book as it seems to be scientific and sensible, with a focus on properly nourishing the body so it doesn't want to store excess fat. Sadly, my finances are compelling me to rely on staff room sharing for a lot of my calories with bread and eggs being mainstays at home. Fruit and veggies are expensive. If I ever get to a place where I can buy these foods, I plan on using this plan.

The recipes in this book are simple and absolutely delicious! I would not consider this a diet book, but rather a retraining your brain and lifestyle book. Four days in and I'm not craving sugar or processed carbs and am feeling great. Every meal is satisfying and I don't feel deprived. I can see following Dr. Ludwig's guidelines for the rest of my life. Readers can join the OfficialAlwaysHungryBook group on Facebook for added support.
