Forget everything you’ve been taught about dieting. In Always Hungry?, renowned endocrinologist Dr. David Ludwig explains why traditional diets don’t work, and presents a radical new plan to help you lose weight without hunger, improve your health, and feel great.

For over two decades, Dr. Ludwig has been at the forefront of research into weight control. His groundbreaking studies show that overeating doesn’t make you fat; the process of getting fat makes you overeat.

Always Hungry? turns dieting on its head with a three-phase program that ignores calories and targets fat cells directly. The recipes and meal plan include luscious high-fat foods (like nuts and nut butters, full-fat dairy, avocados, and dark chocolate), savory proteins, and natural carbohydrates. This is dieting without deprivation.

Forget calories. Forget cravings. Forget dieting, Always Hungry? reveals a liberating new way to tame hunger and lose weight . . . for good.


“Always Hungry is a powerful book that breaks apart every myth about weight loss, and explains for the first time why we get fat and why we are always hungry.”

“For decades Dr. David Ludwig’s research has formed the backbone of other diet programs.”

Andrew WeilAndrew Weil, MD, Founder and Director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine, University of Arizona

“Dr. Ludwig explains why throwing out our calorie-counters and paying more attention to the quality of our diets can result in a healthier weight.”

“Ludwig combines cutting-edge science and clinical experience into an achievable eating pattern that anyone could follow.”
