    "It just works!"

    I can't really speak long term here or if this book is for everyone..... however, I've had this audio book for about a month now and have lost 10 kilos... And I have not been on any sort of diet!

    After changing a few lifestyle issues i.g. Eating with the family, being present when I eat and a few others.... things have really changed for me.

    All in all I found this a worthwhile book that I intend to listen to a few more times...

    "Surprised by the reading."
    Would you listen to What Are You Hungry For? again? Why?

    I would listen to this book again because the info is important but I think I will get the book and read the info myself.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of What Are You Hungry For??

    Learning about the body's Self regulation and balance.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Deepak Chopra?

    I don't know which narrator should have read this book but it should NOT have been Deepak. I love Deepak and have listened to many of his lectures and interviews, however, he sounds flat in this reading. I hesitate to recommend it to anyone who is unfamiliar with his work.

    "Puts everything into perspective"
    What made the experience of listening to What Are You Hungry For? the most enjoyable?

    Been struggling with diet and weight control for years (much like so many others) and about 11 months ago I began to believe that my mind ie subconscious & learnt behavior was more of a culprit than the food itself.
    Deepak has been the first to not only turn in the torch in the dark room of my mind but to actually flip the whole light switch on.
    I am feeling relaxed about food and body image for the first time in a life time.

    Story
    "A comprehensive spectrum on health and awareness"
    If you could sum up What Are You Hungry For? in three words, what would they be?

    Nourishment - Mindfulness- Awareness This is another classic Chopra volume and it has many facets integrated into its diverse insights. Deepak is returning to the issues of health and happiness and now food as a complex and yet basic system requiring mindful living and practice. Nothing can be more basic than "food and nutrition and taste" and the many elements associated with food including emotions and relations.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of What Are You Hungry For??

    In this brilliant book Dr. Chopra uses his medical background as well as his studies in Ayurveda and nutrition sciences and also current research about GMO's and organic vs non-organic in a non-dogmatic , yet precise manner to inform and enlighten the reader in some of the new intricacies of food politics and advertising. He then offers solutions for the SAD diet and the processed sugar and fat laden lifeless food of the market while listing a colorful array of alternatives which draw much from the seeming less endless array of raw and fresh fruits and vegetables (and their rich content of phyto-nutrients) and other plant material and other wise choices for those seeking a real food alternative to "diets" that don't work. Yet just when this seems to be a book about diet and fresh foods and choices it starts a rich pattern of integrating all aspects of "nourishment" in the broadest sense and continues to integrate the many aspects of living that and lifestyle as well as habits that can affect our well-being.


    What does Deepak Chopra bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Emphasis and enunciation of points and feelings. And author's insights in an audible form.I personally I always prefer hearing Deepak narrate his books. His wisdom is palpable.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I again see the comprehensive nature of Deepak's insight when he inttegrtes many messages into one volume. The title ofthe book and the opening chapters makes this seem oike a book on nutritiona nd diet yet it brings about a transformation as it develops into a life sciences and awareness text with the classic Chopra insights.


    Any additional comments?

    The book then investigates all of the aspects of consciousness and living which can have effects on the quality of life and ultimately on one's happiness and balance.Included in this book is much contemporary research on biochemical as well as psychological factors involved n the many levels of "nourishment" As always with Deepak Chopra's work the key is mind-body-and spirit, the Trinity. And true to his roots in Indian culture. Deepak brings back the insights of the science of Ayurveda to broaden the definitions of and insights into holistic nutrition as well as lightening and enlightening the mind and body in a "full spectrum" approach.

    The review of emotional well-being and Self-regulation reviews many delightful and informative views on maintaining inner perspective and mindfulness . Throughout the book Deepak uses a lovely phrase "lightness of Soul' which aptly describes the freedom from emotional-psychological and physical burdens and toxins.

    The last section of the book has many recipes and suggestions for meals and food preparations from the Chopra kitchen and center.Make no mistake, this is no mere food-diet-menu book. It truly draws upon the wisdom of many philosophies and sciences and modern science as well

    I highly recommend this book from Deepak because it weaves together the practicalities of diet and food as well as the issues behind eating and the practices we can integrate to produce optimum health and nutrition as well as the practices needed for balance and insight.. Definitely 5 stars

    "Pretty good"
    Would you consider the audio edition of What Are You Hungry For? to be better than the print version?

    For me it is easier to listen to non-fiction than to read it.


    What other book might you compare What Are You Hungry For? to and why?

    Any of Chopra's books--they are all good


    What about Deepak Chopra’s performance did you like?

    Sometimes I think he is funny without meaning to be.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. I listen to books in my car.


    Any additional comments?

    Sometimes his voice can be a bit monotone, but I do love the information that he shares.

    "Life changing"

    Beautiful. Inspiring. Real. Actionable.
    This is so much more that a book on weight loss. This is what I have been looking for a long time, and it is slowly changing my awareness on what I am really hungry for and why I stuff my face over food. I have already started changing my approach on every aspect of life, including my motivation to get active, the type of food I eat, the quantity, what pushes me to eat and to be aware of the moments I overindulge.
    You will find everything you need in a practical guide to get your life in order again by being "present", lighter, centered and happy again. Effortlessly and easily.
    Love it so much!! Highly highly recommended.
