Publisher's Summary

Appetite Correction (AC) is a revolutionary new focus in weight loss based on years of user experience with Dr. Bert’s ground-breaking guide to daily intermittent fasting, The Fast-5 Diet and the Fast-5 Lifestyle.

AC means getting your body’s appetite center working again, so not only do you lose excess fat, you lose it without being hungry, and once you’ve lost the weight, it stays off if you maintain the flexible, low-effort AC lifestyle. When the appetite center is working properly, you don’t want to eat more than you need.

A working appetite center means:

  • you recover control over food
  • no calorie counting is required - your appetite center does the counting automatically
  • no food is off limits! Even wine, beer, and candy are allowed
  • people who adopt an AC eating schedule save money and time! (see below for details)
  • You work with your body instead of fighting it!

Hundreds of AC/Fast-5 2016 survey respondents reported:

  • average sustained weight loss of 44 pounds!
  • $2500 saved annually on food costs!
  • 9 hours saved weekly!

Learn how in AC: The Power of Appetite Correction, which provides 17 non-drug, non-surgical lifestyle tools that have worked for countless people to reduce appetite, so they experience freedom, power, and control over food with no need to count calories, exercise, or eliminate any foods or food groups.

Concise and so helpful

Need information on intermittent fasting? Get it here. Start here and move on. Need hand holding? Look up Gin Stephens and Delay, Don't Deny. Everything you need to know to prepare is here, but the hand holding is elsewhere.

Boring narrator

The content of the book is brilliant, but it would be much better if you record it again with a professional narrator, or someone who keeps it entertaining, like Gin Stephens, author of Delay Don’t Deny. I almost fell asleep while driving and listening to this audiobook, literally.

Trying to get this information in my head, but...

Trying to understand this content but the narrator is a pretty strong deterrent. Sometimes, she sounds so disinterested in what she is reading, I'm afraid she is going to fall asleep. I can endure the sound quality- sounds like she is talking into a phone, but it sounds like the narrator isn't even trying to sound interesting.
I wish Dr. Herring would have this book redone with a new narrator.

good info, but...

Struggled with finishing this book. The information was informative, but the person reading the book would always put me to sleep. They should have went with someone who has more character in their voice.

Ok for basic info

I was not impressed with this. If you are doing or interested in IF, it’s some basic info, but it’s one of those books that is really not more than a few pages of good info stretched out by lots of nothing (use a smaller plate so you aren’t tempted to pile on as much food). The TOC lists a bunch of tools, but they didn’t seem that practical. Just informative-ish. Narration was tedious.

POOR AUDIO!

Audio sounds like it was recorded in a tin can. Very distracting to try and pay attention to. It's a shame. I really like the content. I suggested it get re-recorded.

Great book

This is a very good book. My rating has to do with the fact that I was already familiar with the content so some of the parts were very basic to me. This is a very good starting book for someone unaware of the topic.

Bad audio

The person that narrated this book is terrible. if the content wasn't interesting to me I would have stopped listening in the first few min.

Not great.

I have seen Bert and Judi Herring on many YouTube videos and she is much more animated than she was during her flat narration of this book. I wanted more information and science on how we can/do reset our appetites and was quite disappointed. However, from my personal experience following a plan such as his Fast 5 Diet/Lifestyle can totally normalize one's response to food so thumbs up for the Herrings but I cannot recommend this particular book.

Hard going

Although I understand that the narrator was probably trying to be clear and consistent I found her really hard to listen to. Initially I was actually convinced that it was a computer generated voice. There were a few moments where she became more animated and it was a joy! Due to the narration I found the book really hard going and I’m not sure that I was able to get much out of it. I will re listen to some key chapters to try and get a proper grasp...but not today!

Awful

You could summarise this book in one sentence: only eat for a 5 hour window in 24. Utterly awful with banal, basic advice and nothing of merit at all. It sounds like Bert’s previous work was “fast 19 hours a day” and hr needed some more cash so came up with a new idea called “only eat for 5 hours a day”. Jury’s reading of the book is wooden at best which is the final nail in the coffin of the biggest howler I’ve ever downloaded on Audible.

brilliant book!

I loved this book. full of useful and practical information for every day challenges of fasting. dr herring provides you with a huge toolbox of tips and tricks to make this lifestyle yours. his wife does a good job narrating the book and has a calm and clear voice. I have listened to this book 4 times already and will keep coming back to it. I have successfully got onto OMAD and steadily losing weight. not easy to do when you are menopausal and hypothyroid. this book is life changing., do yourself a favour and read it
