    "Slam dunk!"

    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.

    "Some reviewers missed the point"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


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

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm not sure I agree with every single logical point but overall I think it's sound thinking and I found it liberating.

    "Don't waste your time"

    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.

    Complete drivel.

    "Halfwit Logic & Condescending Tone"

    Every bit of "logic" used in the argument being put forward falls apart under mild scrutiny. This *might* sound convincing if you skipped a critical thinking class in college, but mostly it's just stupid.

    The claim that you can "lose weight without exercising and still eat all your favorite foods," relies heavily on the notion that our favorite foods are Brussels sprouts and brown rice. Apparently our minds have been fooled into thinking our favorite foods are pizza and cheeseburgers by "big food."

    And you know what? Maybe. But as someone who loves Brussels sprouts, they lose 10 times out of 10 against pizza. My point? You can't lose weight without a lot of moderation and a little exercise. This book is a lie.

    On the positive side, if you love being spoken down to by an upper-class British accent, this audio book is absolutely for you.

    100% crap.

    "excellent narration"

    If you listen to this audio book with an open mind and let the author's messages sink in and resonate within your mind, you will start seeing food in a new way. In particular, you will have an appreciation for foods which you have taken for granted all your life, which taste great and are actually are good to your body in ways you don't realize. More importantly, you will recognize "junk" foods for what they are (mixtures of sugars, salt and chemicals designed by corporations to hook you and extract money from your wallet) and instantly and almost magically, their appeal will vaporize. This is one of those rare books that can truly change your life for the better if you give it a meaningful chance. I have listened to this book several times over the last month since I first acqired it and without any concious effort have lost over 15 lbs, have more energy and focus than I've had in years, and I do not feel starved or deprived. Even better, I have not felt the discomfort and shame from over stuffing myself with junk foods.

    "everything the world has forgotten"

    I used the stop smoking now book a little over a year ago and haven't picked up a cigarette or even wanted one since I finished it. I came to this book because I am a little overweight and want to be healthier I trust the author and after reading it I am not disappointed. I've been trusting my instincts for 3 days now and already feel a hundred percent better I know this method is going to work a hundred percent.

    "simple approach but powerful honest message"

    enjoyed it. almost hypnotic in approach
    regarding suggestions about food and making better choices. I'm already engaged with the program and feeling confident about living a healthier life. the past two weeks have given me hope. one must be ready and open to suggestions to fully engage in the suggestions.

    "Disappointment"
    Would you try another book from Allen Carr and/or Richard Mitchley?

    Disappointment. The author is selling vegetarianism and even small amount political correctness. Narration is fine.

    "Great Book"

    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.

    "Don't buy it if you ever had a biology lesson!"

    I don't know where to start. I appreciate the author's claimed results of helping millions to stop smoking, drinking, eating, etc. BUT this does not justify to write a book filled with complete and utter rubbish about how the digestive system works, how food is processed, why we gain weight. The two principles, "calories in calories out" and "only eat when hungry" make sense, but other than that, not much.
    Some examples: describing chimpanzees as living on plants only, the nutritional values of water, especially "oxygenated", fat grows from the undigested leftovers in our intestines, that nobody has lactase enzyme once stopped breastfeeding, protein is digested by acid and carbohydrate by alkaline and if these mix they remain undigested.... countless statements with absolutely no research in physiology or biology. And this is the updated version! I am almost ashamed I bought it... shame because the principle of explaining to people how unhealthy junk food is is a good idea but the explanations are from a fairy tale.

    "Not what it appears!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    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?


    What three words best describe Richard Mitchley’s performance?

    Mediocre, bland and monotonous


    If this book were a film would you go see it?

    No

    "Spoiler alert!"

    I'm afraid I'm really disappointed. Having been cured of my fear of flying by one of Allen Carrs books, I was really excited to try this one. Unfortunately at the beginning he tells you that you can eat as much of your favourite foods as you like....then brainwashes you into believing that fruit, vegetables, nuts and seeds are your favourite foods. It does have some very interesting facts about a number of subjects so wasn't a total write off but I'm afraid hasn't worked for me.

    "Helps get your mind around the food traps"
    If you could sum up Lose Weight Now in three words, what would they be?

    Excellently thought provoking


    What does Richard Mitchley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Listening to this book has made it feel like a conversation with someone who knows and believes that there are better food choices than the ones I am currently making. But it's not "YOU MUST NOT EAT xxx", the book simply explains what your body does and doesn't need and then it's up to you to make your choices.
