I read this book hoping that it would be similar to his Stop smoking book but his book is not accurate at all , he talks allot about eating natures food and how we were like apes and not made to eat meat but fruit , and its very samey. I honestly am disappointed I really had expected this book to be allot better than it was.

An excellent book. The author in detail explains the reasons why we tend to over eat. He also explains the power of marketing and social conditioning not to mention the addictive nature of processed foods. Identifying true hunger and false hunger is another powerful tool to improved eating habits and this is covered extensively in the book and the fantastic cd that puts in the spoken word key points of the healthy eating argument. From day one after reading this superb book I was celebrating a new found joy in natural foods savouring each mouthful and eating to the point that left me feeling fantastic not bloated or uncomfortable. I no longer crave sickly sweet or fatty tasting processed junk pitying those that do. In one day of reading I revised 6 months of expensive consultations with a this book and begin the journey to weight loss better blood sugar and cholesterol levels and a new found energy...

About the author (1999)

Allen Carr was an accountant who smoked 100 cigarettes a day until he broke the habit and wrote a series of bestselling books. He built a hugely successful network of stop smoking clinics across the world and is the author of The Easy Way to Stop Smoking, How to Stop Your Child Smoking and The Easy Way to Enjoy Flying. Allen Carr was diagnosed with lung cancer in the summer of 2006 and died in November of the same year. Many thought it likely that the years he spent curing smokers in smoke-filled sessions at his clinics must have contributed to this illness, but Allen Carr remained positive, 'Given that I am informed that I have cured at least 10 million smokers on a conservative estimation, it's a price worth paying.'
