"Inspired by the New York Times op-ed "Always Hungry," ALWAYS HUNGRY? will change everything readers ever thought about weight loss, diet, and health. Groundbreaking new research shows that calorie counting does not work for weight loss: one diet causes weight gain whereas another diet with the same calorie count doesn't. It's your fat cells that are to blame for causing excessive hunger and increased weight. By eating the wrong foods, our fat cells are triggered to take in too many calories for themselves, setting off a dangerous chain reaction of increased appetite and a slower metabolism. Now, Harvard Medical School's David Ludwig, MD, PhD, offers an impeccably researched diet that will turn dieting on its head, teaching readers to reprogram their fat cells, tame hunger, boost metabolism, 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.
