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 will power, 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:
- re-programme our fat cells
- tame humger
- 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.
