Publisher's Summary

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 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.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Critic Reviews

"David Ludwig is one of the very few voices of true authority in the world of obesity. This book goes to the heart of the underlying cause of our obesity crisis based on the emerging science of satiety and how it controls our hunger. More importantly, this book offers a practical, lifetime approach to return to a state of improved wellness regardless of your weight." (Barry Sears)
"Dr. David Ludwig is the leading researcher and voice in our food and nutrition revolution. His focused, incisive, impeccable and irrefutable research has broken the code on why we are facing an overwhelming epidemic of obesity and chronic disease. His voice needs to be heard by all, and heeded by all." (Mark Hyman)

Great book with one horrible and one good narrator

What made the experience of listening to Always Hungry? the most enjoyable?

The book is filled with new insights to nutrition, and how the food we choose affects our body. However, the testimonials that seem to take up about 50% of the book are excessive, annoying, and endless.

What didn’t you like about David Ludwig’s performance?

David Ludwig's narration was fine. It was nice to hear the author in his own voice. Even though he's not a professional, he did a good job.
The OTHER narrator, though, the one who reads the testimonials, is like fingernails on a chalkboard. She over-emotes every word, and reads every quote in the exact same infomercial voice. I'd pay extra for a version without any of her interruptions.

Any additional comments?

Please, please, please release a version without the testimonials.
