Review Text

The prime objective of this engaging scheme is not actually weight loss but enjoyment of life. You can eat what you want to, and feel better for it: an winning plan requiring no willpower. Carr (whose famous stop-smoking plan is based on similar philosophy) claims that the most overweight is due to the brainwashing of Western society overriding our natural instincts. Reverse the brainwashing and you can do what 99% of creatures on the planet do - eat when you're hungry and stop when you're full; eating mostly nutritious, healthy ingredients and avoiding the highly human trap of junk foods and refined sugar.

About Allen Carr

Allen Carr was an accountant who smoked 100 cigarettes a day until he broke the habit and wrote a series of bestselling books. He built a hugely successful network of stop smoking clinics across the world and is the author of The Easy Way to Stop Smoking, How to Stop Your Child Smoking and The Easy Way to Enjoy Flying. Allen Carr was diagnosed with lung cancer in the summer of 2006 and died in November of the same year. Many thought it likely that the years he spent curing smokers in smoke-filled sessions at his clinics must have contributed to this illness, but Allen Carr remained positive, 'Given that I am informed that I have cured at least 10 million smokers on a conservative estimation, it's a price worth paying.'show more
