Publisher's Summary

Always Hungry? will be both a relief and a revelation to many who struggle with weight. We're not getting fat because we're overeating; we're overeating because we're getting fat.
In other words, what makes us constantly hungry, overweight and undernourished is not a lack of willpower but a biological reaction to our present-day diet and lifestyle.
Our fat cells are hoarding the nutrients from the food we eat instead of releasing them into the bloodstream to be used, triggering a starvation response that sets us up for failure: if we eat more, we'll gain weight; if we eat less, we'll slow our metabolism down and (again) gain weight. Help!
Always Hungry shows us how to break out of this cycle that is keeping us overweight. It helps us to:

Reprogramme our fat cells
Tame hunger
Boost our metabolism
Lose weight

In a clear, compassionate and authoritative voice, Dr. Ludwig debunks the calorie myth that losing weight is simply a matter of eating less. He explains the science and the research behind our epidemic of overweightness and presents a detailed, highly structured plan to help us conquer the cravings.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Do not buy this as an audiobook

The audiobook is written as a book you'd follow along as you progress with the diet plan. This obviously is lacking since I go from week one of the diet to week two on my ride to work.

The overall diet does make sense and I'll definitely try it!

There is hope !

Would you consider the audio edition of Always Hungry? to be better than the print version?

I find listening on the go allows me time to benefit from the book I just don't have to sit down and read

What other book might you compare Always Hungry? to, and why?

Good calories bad calories by G Taubes - similar insightful and balanced look at the flawed nutrition we have all be brought up on

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

We need the PDF I have contacted audible. The book makes lots of reference to the PDF but it did not accompany the book
