    (Reprinted from the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography [cclapcenter.com]. I am the original author of this essay, as well as the owner of CCLaP; it is not being reprinted illegally.) The bad news about Dr. David Ludwig's newest book, Always Hungry? -- and this is only min...

    I read this over a year ago and it changed the way I think about sugar and simple carbs. It helped me understand how the pancreas in particular processes simple sugars and why excess sugar consumption has led to more obesity. Before this book, I was very skeptical of low-carb diets...

    I consider myself to be a good critical thinker and reasonably knowledgeable about health and nutrition. All the same, I have found myself confused and despairing over food. What is healthy eating? What is moderation? Why is it so hard for me to follow "the rules"? This book- writte...

    For most of my life I?ve approached eating somewhat skeptically. I was not raised in a household that entertained even a curiosity about nutrition, to say the least. It took until I was nearly twenty before I had the palate to even choke down a green salad. The body can be capable of...

    I suppose I should not necessarily review this until I?ve gone through all three weeks of the initial parts, but so far I?m enjoying what I?m reading. This seems like the kinder, gentler, more vegetarian version of Whole30/reconfigure your diet to lower proportions of shitty proc...

    A well-researched scientific approach to weight-loss focusing on a higher-fat lower carbohydrate diet. Vegetarian options are included but almost entirely consist of tofu or tempeh! ...

    The diet described in this book did not work for me. Given the highly individual nature of human bodies, and the subjective values of self-help books, perhaps I should just leave it at that. It might work for you, fair enough. If it does, enjoy. However, Dr. Ludwig makes some awfull...

    There are two reasons I eat too much. One is emotional, one is plain hunger. As in, I am crazy hungry really quickly after I eat. Like 2 hours after a meal. Which is insane. I have always thought it was some sort of moral failing, but this book was at the library so I figured I'd give ...

    I heard an interview w/ David Ludwig and thought that he'd put out an interesting, science-based product. That was not the case. The book is peppered (A LOT) with people's "Always hungry story". They are so annoying that, for me, they take away from the book. Additionally, there wasn't...

    I'm giving this five stars because it has been the most helpful in my quest to quit eating sugar (long enough to break the addiction, not forever). Dr. Ludwig makes a compelling case for a higher fat, lower carbohydrate diet. I've been reading this along with Salt, Sugar, Fat, by M...

    Great book! I'll try to keep it short: I was so very tired of being confused about all the competing health advice there is out there. Then I heard about this book from Michael Pollan and from Science Friday. Dr Ludwig's medical and science credentials are super legit, so I made the pl...

    Nothing really new here nor is it particularly well said. All in all, better to skip this title and read either Gary Taubes or Dr. David Kessler instead. ...

    With Always Hungry?, there are two things to review: the book as a book and the book as an eating system. The eating system has been working great for me. In the month I?ve been on it, I?ve lost 10 pounds without feeling like I?m dieting and no ?white-knuckling? it to the...

    Basically, my review is the same as others I've seen. It's an interesting and probably true theory. But, how feasible is it to follow this plan "forever"...and to cook from a recipe every single night? For me, most unlikely. But, it did give me some thoughts to chew on, so to speak. An...

    It works. I have been following this eating approach since the beginning of the year and have lost almost 30 pounds without suffering. The key is to find a system that will work for you that you can follow for the rest of your life, not 'while you're on a diet.' Part of why thi...

    The jury is still out on how effective this eating approach is at mitigating common health problems, and the author doesn't really make any claims toward this end. But personally, I found myself feeling much better while eating on this diet. I didn't have the sugar-related issues with ...

    As someone interested in the political food landscape of our country, this book really impressed me! I devoured the science at the beginning, got menu ideas and loved the political ending with advice on how consumers can help make the needed changes in our current food culture. Great r...

    Science-based, free from the moralising attitudes toward fat, with a holistic approach to improve lifestyle. The meal plans are detailed and meals simple enough (read some criticism that the recipes require spending too long in the kitchen. I disagree. From an Italian PoV, spending up ...

    -this book promises you wont have to endure hunger to lose weight. parts of it get technical and boring. i like the recipes. -after a few weeks of calorie restriction, the body fights back and makes us feel hungry, tired, and deprived. though we may be able to ignore these feelings fo...

    This might be the book for you if you are a newbie to nutrition and whole food eating. This covers the basics as well as how important it is to avoid processed anything. However, I think I was looking for more science and research because that is one of the reasons I spend some time wi...

    READ THIS BOOK! That's all there is to say. And thank me afterwards. But since I can't ever be succinct, here is more to say: This is a brilliant book that is based on science and research to support a higher fat, moderate protein, low carb approach to health. Let me stress thi...

    There are countless books written on weight loss but none addresses the true cause of weight gain like ?Always Hungry?? This book is a paradigm shift in the conventional view of obesity. Dr. Ludwig explains why the cause and effect need to be reversed in the current obesity model. ...

    This is another "diet book" but with one or two takeaways: 1. "It is not overeating what makes us fat, it is the process of getting fat what makes us overeat. Hence, we need to stop getting fat in order to stop overeating" And the way to stop getting fat is hijacking our fat cells,...
