This week’s “Diet Show – Book Review” is brought to you by Deepak Chopra According to Amazon, “Bestselling author Deepak Chopra focuses on the huge problem of weight control in America with exciting new concepts. What Are You Hungry For? is the breakthrough book that can bring weight under effortless control by linking it to personal fulfillment in every area of a reader’s life.”
Throughout What Are You Hungry For?, Deepak suggests that it is lack of personal fulfillment that can be linked to ones tendency to over eat or struggle with their weight. Deepak encourages the reader to look inward to figure out the deeper meaning behind their diet struggles. He then offers some dietary tips and solutions to focus what you eat more on health and nutrition. Reviews of this book are mainly positive and one reviewer in particular credits this book for new found joy found within daily awareness and small changes.
The description states, “What are you hungry for? Food? Love? Self-esteem? Peace? In this manual for “higher health,” based on the latest findings in both mainstream and alternative medicine, Deepak Chopra creates a vision of weight loss based on a deeper awareness of why people overeat – because they are trying to find satisfaction and wind up using food as a substitute for real fulfillment. Repudiating the failed approaches of crash dieting and all forms of deprivation, Chopra’s new book aims directly at the problem of finding fulfillment. When that problem is solved, he argues, normal eating falls into place automatically, and the entire system of mind and body achieves what it really desires.”
