Much you'd care, but I'd like to tell you, all the same. However, his approach is gradual. There's none of that shed-seven-pounds-in-seven-days malarkey. Then, what with Christmas and everything, it's too early to say if the message will reach the parts that other slimming messages cannot reach. The hope is that the man who has succeeded where others failed in talking smokers out of their tobacco habit, and ho has himself lost two stone, can talk perennial "slimmers" out of a futile dieting habit and into a new means of body maintenance.

God, animals, mother nature, apes And I simply hate such brain washing. No no no Read it till the end simply because I am stubborn and wanted to see what's at the end. I very much hope that the suggestions in the book will do no harm to people and they will not end up slim, but very sick.
View 1 comment. What in the world did I just read??? I still celebrate that every year with a small dinner party. So, after I gained weight after, well, shit happened in life, medication etc, weight which I can't seem to lose, I thought, maybe Carr can help me. But man, was I wrong. While reading I kept a list of all the brainwashing bs in this book, thinking I would use that for my review, but I d 1 star O. While reading I kept a list of all the brainwashing bs in this book, thinking I would use that for my review, but I don't even know where that list is anymore and I really don't feel like going over those points again.
I'm sincerely glad for all of them and so I truly believe that if you think this book will help you, then you should definitely read it, because I believe in doing whatever it is that helps you reach your goal. Because of this I thought about giving it an additional half star, so 1. But I can't I just can't View all 5 comments. Sep 10, Vicki rated it really liked it. I read this book over a year ago and put it into practice straight away, I have never felt so good about myself, I am not only much thinner but I also no longer suffer from migraines or constant colds.
I am a meat eater and have found the combining of different foods means i no longer suffer that horrible bloated feeling after eating. The book itself was difficult to read, I found it hard to get through but it works so I think it's worth it. View all 3 comments. Nov 08, Christel Petersen rated it did not like it Shelves: , non-fiction. The worst book I've ever read on this subject!
I couldn't even finish it - to me it was the same kind of brain washing that he speaks so pasionately against, only with a different perspektive, namely that all food is bad for you, except raw vegetables Dec 24, S.
Short assessment: This book started off with good intentions but failed to deliver because the conclusion was just one more diet. If you want to lose weight without dieting but instead through a lifestyle change, read Intuitive Eating.
He's done really great work, and I applaud him for the lasting change he's affected. However, he took the principles o Short assessment: This book started off with good intentions but failed to deliver because the conclusion was just one more diet. However, he took the principles of that book and attempted to apply them to dieting. That was a great first step, but unfortunately, he both goes too far and not far enough.
Breaking through brainwashing is a key point in his stop smoking book, and in this one, he also sets the reader down the path to do just that. Among other things, he outlines how added sugar and salt keep those of us here in the Western world addicted to processed food. I've had personal experience prior to reading this book with breaking free of pre-packaged and sugary foods because I had a food intolerance that didn't allow me to eat more than a few grams of sugar in one meal or I would suffer painful consequences much like gluten or lactose intolerance.
I'm now well-versed in "ingredient-list-ese" and just how awful those ingredients are. If you've never really-- really --let what's in the ingredient list sink into your brain, it's a pretty mind-boggling experience to go through. It's even tougher to change your entire lifestyle to cut out foods that add no nutritional value to your diet. It's something you have to spend days or weeks wrapping your head around, and this book like the stop smoking book brings that information to your attention and allows you, if you want, to focus on the truth behind the crap the food industry is shoveling down our throats.
I would give this book four stars if that's where he ended it. However, he goes off the rails in two ways: 1. I found a factually inaccurate statement in the book about the metabolism and chemical properties of sugar, which calls into question everything else he's presented as fact. He takes his recommendations too far and tells the reader that if you're going to revise your eating habits, you're going to have to change your diet to view spoiler [vegan hide spoiler ].
The first error lowers the impact of his statements about everything, and the second ensures that the readers stays in the diet trap. And I'm not so sure about the arguments he presents for his particular diet, either.
Factually Inaccurate Statement Here is the factually inaccurate statement, quoted from the book: The natural sugar in unprocessed foods such as fruit is easily digest and like all other nutrients, travels through the body and feeds it. In its natural form, it's the primary fuel for your mind.
When you eat fruit, the natural sugar, fructose, enters your body, combined with fibre and water. These act together to create the glucose necessary for your brain to function. Monosaccharides , or the simplest unit of sugar, come in different chemical configurations, but each one has its own unique properties.
Glucose is a monosaccharide and fructose is a monosaccharide. They and other monosaccharides combine to form di- and polysaccharides. Saying that fructose combines with stuff to create glucose is like saying that a neutron combines with stuff to create a proton, or flour combines with stuff to create eggs.
That's just not how it works, period. They do, however, exist in different amounts in different fruits, which is, I suppose, how he got confused. Apples have a large amount of fructose and a small amount of glucose, whereas blueberries have a large amount of glucose and a smaller amount of fructose. Glucose and fructose chemically bonded together create the disaccharide sucrose , which is the chemical name for white sugar. They also have different names: Dextrose and corn syrup are both names for glucose; whereas high fructose corn syrup is primarily fructose.
I could continue, but I won't, since this is supposed to be a book review. Suffice it to say that this factually inaccurate statement calls into question the rest of his assertions. He doesn't include footnotes or cite sources. So every time he says, "Your body works this way," I got more and more dubious. Sure, some of it I knew to be true, but a lot of it, I couldn't trust.
Still, I don't want to throw the baby out with the bathwater. As I said at the beginning, he is indeed correct about the ridiculous amount of nutrition-free ingredients in processed and packaged food, and it is best to completely avoid them. Recommendation for a New Diet The book perpetuates the negativity around eating that you truly need to break free of if you're going to lose weight and be happy without dieting.
Sorry to toot its horn some more, but one of the key principles of Intuitive Eating is to remove the morality around choice and frequency of eating.

Allen Carr's easyweigh to lose weight
Last Updated on April 3, This might not sound especially surprising, until you realise that I have never smoked a cigarette in my life. Throughout his books, audio tapes, videos and in-person sessions at clinics, Allen Carr systematically debunks the reasons that you think you want to consume your substance of choice, dismantling the brainwashing, until you realize that there is only one reason: a mild physical addiction that has no more power over you than a common cold. Allen Carr maintains that we feel compelled to overindulge because we feel as if we need it to alleviate stress or make meals and social occasions enjoyable — to provide a crutch to help with life.
