I really enjoy Allen Carr, but this book was complete drivel. I'll save you the time and money by telling you his "Easy Way" consists of eating nothing but fruit, veggies, seeds and nuts. Yes, you will lose weight if that's all you eat. I didn't need a book to tell me that.
He leads you on the entire book by telling you you'll be able to lose weight by eating as much of your "favorite foods" as you want, but then drops the bomb at the end by trying to convince you that your favorite foods are the ones nature intended - i.e. fruit, veggies, nuts and seeds. No Allen, my favorite foods are pasta, donuts and cookies, but nice try.
The book emphasized over and over to forget about dieting and will power -- approaches that seldom work permanently -- and that you don't have to give up any particular food.Recommended if you want to change your *habits* and forget dieting. It's for a gradual change in your thinking about food. One does need an open mind, as the author stresses, and he stresses not to take anything he says by faith. It does not preclude eating any specific food but emphasizes healthy foods that you like, and has bookoo valuable information about how to help your body rather than throw obstacles in the way of its healthy functioning.
I looked forward to listening while walking and bought the written version after finishing the audio book so I could easily look up ideas and reference information going forward.
I'm not sure I agree with every single logical point but overall I think it's sound thinking and I found it liberating.
I am not a gambler, but I read now read four books by Allen Carr: On smoking, alcohol, gambling, and debt...because I was so impressed with his unique approach to addictions.
I recently checked out his website. He company offers seminars and online classes around the world. I have a loved one who is a CHAIN SMOKER. He is also OVERWEIGHT...after being a skinny guy for much of his life.
I also have another family member who had a darling figure until she got married and had three children. I am interested in helping both of them.
BTW, on his website and on YouTube are video TESTIMONIALS from celebrities such as: Anthody Hopkins, Aston Kutcher, Ellen Degernes, and Richard Branson. Check them out.
Another great book from Allen Carr! Can't believe I almost didn't buy it cause of the reviews. I wonder if people actually pay attention to what they are reading. This man's a genius when it comes to understanding human behavior. And, yes, I know his method works cause this is how I used to eat before I was brainwashed by society to eat junk.
The author presents his ideas in a clear, objective, enjoyable and effective way! It's impossible not to get excited about losing weight like this! Definitely worth reading!!
This book gets some of the science behind digestion and nutrition wrong. I like Carrs work but he had fallen for a different kind of brain washing in this one. While there is some material that could help people in this book, there are better books.
I picked up on ruse early on in the book.
I guess I would try one more time simply because his book how to stop smoking really really worked since I am now a non smoker. It didn't work this time though.
The narration was:
Okay, boring, boring.
I wouldnt really do it any other way. I just didn't buy into the concept he was trying to sell. I wasn't convinced. That why readers read these kinds of books for motivation and conviction. Both were lacking.
I was unconvinced early on in this book I knew what the plan was early on. I read on cuz I was hoping there was some kind of hypnosis awaiting with further reading but......no, nothing! I was truly disappointed he failed to convince me with this book, I really had high hopes...sigh.....now back to all those Aweful diets.
this is a brilliant and insightful book. it really helps change your view of food.
"Not what it appears!"
If you want to be educated about food and the downside of dairy and meat, then this is the book for you. What he means when he says you can eat as much of your favourite food as you like, is that you have to swap the foods that put weight on you for salads fruit etc. Had the title been,'swap your cakes for fruit and veggies', you wouldn't have bought it right?
Mediocre, bland and monotonous
Nothing really,if i had known that after waffling on for what seemed like forever he decides to tell you his secret.....become a vegetarian.
All of it.....its rubbish.
If he'd have said in the notes on Audible that the secret to losing weight was becoming a vegetarian i wouldn't have wasted a credit on it.
So, I bought this book on the strength of successfully giving up smoking through the Allen Carr Easyway seminar in London. I read a lot of reviews, mostly of people on the fence with regards to the same method applied to food.
For me the book was really good. Coincidently, I gave up eating meat and most dairy products about two weeks before reading the book so Allen's belief of abstaining from meat and dairy really rang true for me. The book confirms what most of us already know in terms of eating foods that are provided by nature in their most natural state. His method of helping the reader to understand the negative brainwashing we've all been susceptible to is enlightening.
I would recommend this book to people who are open to different ideas and approaches to food, as well as those who realise that what society has taught, us along with the big food giants is what contributes directly to our unhealthy issues with food.
Did not enjoy at all found it really boring and found my mind wandering. Wasn't with the credit I used.
"Helped me see junk food for the junk it is!!!"
Yes, Im allready pretty slim but ate 4 Donner kebabs a week, biscuits, bacon butties and loads of junk. I now give my body what it wants.
Hated fruit prior to reading, now I eat it every day. YESSSSSSSSSS!
I read this book a few years ago after reading and quitting with his Smoking book ..I lost weight and then as you do I slipped back to junk food..so was really happy to see this on audio...it works so I didn't hesitate to purchase and look forward to a slimmer healthier me
Great book...more importantly it's works
Changed my way of thinking about food. Allen Carr literally saved my life :-)
Easyway works for a host of issues!
"Turns into a rant for veganism"
Not being a crusade against normality, starts ok with a way to view overeating but goes downhill quickly
