Boring

The narraters voice was awful. Couldn't bring myself to finish the book. She also contracted herself. In the beginning, she said eliminate all junk food,Then later she said not too.

Content is okay but terrible narration

I purchased the 3 books in one. There are a lot of interesting points on food addiction. What you choose to do with that knowledge thought is harder if you are truly addicted. You can give someone all the information but they also need tools and support to overcome something like this.

I also found the book makes claims that are not backed up. The author obviously has a wide knowledge but where is the evidence to back it up? When you make claims you have to be able to reference your material. eg one claim that magnesium will help stop chocolate cravings (I have heard that elsewhere too but how do I take the author's word for it? Where is the science to back it up?). There is some good information here and its a good overall summary, but then some information reads more like magazine style tips - the type that tell you to call a friend when you have a craving to distract yourself.

It does talk about what causes different types of cravings, but the solutions were just suggestions without telling you how to deal with the deeper root of the problem. In book 2, which I didn't feel was that relevant to my own situation but listened to nonetheless, they talk about night eating (which sounds like a more rare eating disorder where people eat to get back to sleep) but then give general tips to eat more protein, drink more water, eat certain foods. I think if I had that particular issue these tips would just be bandaid solutions that doesnt address the root cause. Its hard enough to be addicted to food and eating at unusual times - those tips aren't enough.

Another example is the third book talked about having sugar free snacks and gum to reduce appetite (not backed up) but it doesn't reveal that chewing gum is also known to increase your digestive juices that make you hungry! And the artificial sweeteners can cause you to crave sweets. So its a bit ambiguous/contradictory. Those tips aren't completely bad though, they might work for some but I'm not sure it is fully correct or enough to just change behaviour. She said that it takes just 21 days to change a habit and it sounded like if you do this it will be over in 21 days, but I don't believe its that simple (from personal experience). It came across as if you eat well for 21 days you will be cured of your eating issues. I don' t think so. It was too certain, and doesnt give you tips on how to deal with the emotions and struggles you will encounter in those 21 days. Trust me, I've been on great eating plans for longer than that and all it takes is one bit of chocolate here and there and I can undo 6 months of a good habit! (my root cause of overeating is obviously quite entrenched and strong).

Like I said I think it has some good information, some good tips but I like to be a bit more confident in what I'm being told. For the price though it is not bad and would help some people. The narrative is pretty bad - thank goodness it was a short book/s otherwise I could not handle listening to this narrator! at first I thought it was a computer generated one, but alas it seems it is a real person. The tone of the narration was also a bit weird. She reads the table of contents with no emotion, and then reads a table format journal ie day 1, what did I feel, day 2, (reads next column) - day 3 (reads next column) - all the way to 30 days! it was very weird and unnecessary). Perhaps a PDF download would have been better.

Even though the reading of this book is quite poor and you need to be tolerant or just very busy to read, I would recommend you read the kindle version and get a good summary of it - there should be at least a few tips you learn from this book but don't expect to be over the whole food addiction thing with just these books.
