Publisher's Summary

Food addiction is real. Our body’s built-in reward system, driven by the chemical dopamine, tells us to do things that give us pleasure: Creative energy, falling in love, entrepreneurship—even the continued procreation of the human race—are driven by this system. Unfortunately, so is the urge to overeat.

In The Hunger Fix, Dr. Pam Peeke uses the latest neuroscience to explain how, with repeated exposure, coupled with life stresses, any food can become a "False Fix" and ensnare you in a vicious cycle of food obsession, overeating, and addiction. Indeed, she shows that dopamine rushes in the body can work exactly the same way with food as with drugs like cocaine.

Luckily, this very same system can be easily rewired to reward us with a healthy, happy, and fulfilling life. The Hunger Fix lays out a science-based three-stage plan that shows us how to break our addiction to False Fixes and replace them with healthier rewards. Fun fitness activities, customized meal plans, and delicious, satisfying recipes are designed to trigger the specific neurochemical cascade that stimulates your body’s reward system, reclaims your hijacked brain, and supports your lifelong recovery.

Energizing Healthy Fixes, such as meditating, having sex, writing your own blog, or going for a walk on the beach—even laughing—quickly replace the junk food, couch time, and other self-destructive habits that can leave you unhappy and overweight. Packed with practical tips, useful advice, and plenty of wit, wisdom, and inspiring stories of those who have successfully transformed their bodies, The Hunger Fix is a life changing program for anyone (of any size) trapped by food obsessions and the urge to overeat.

    "Get to the point!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This is a difficult book to listen to. Perhaps the rating could have been higher if the author would have gotten to the point and stopped plugging herself over and over again.


    Has The Hunger Fix turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I will definitely be more cautious about choosing this type of audible book. I will seriously read and consider the certified purchase reviews on Amazon!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The constant plugging of personal credentials and the repetition of words just killed it for me. After awhile, I didn't even care if there might be useful information at some point, I just couldn't listen anymore.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No, not really. Sorry.
