July 26, 2016 – Here are 5 of my favorite Big Ideas from “Always Hungry?” by David Ludwig. Hope you enjoy!

June 13, 2016 – Every year, health writers drop hundreds of diet books, most of which offer some new spin on the “eat way less = you’ll probably drop pounds” equation—utterly ignoring the fact that you’ll also be a hangry mess.

Then along comes a book that not only generates serious buzz, but also has staying power.

April 1, 2016 – It’s time to leave fad diets behind – there’s an easier path to weight loss, and it doesn’t involve counting calories or cutting out fats. In Always Hungry?, David Ludwig, MD, presents a new roadmap to weight loss that incorporates more healthful fats.

March 15, 2016 – Finished another amazing book on PERMANENT weight loss.

It’s all about fats. Again. Or better say about refined carbohydrates and their effect on weight loss, that nasty fat on our body we often hate, and about health and importance of fats in our diet. These days it’s all about fats in a new diet era.

With more research, more science and less marketing bias, it’s obvious that for a long time we demonized the wrong guy – fat – when it comes to weight loss, burning body fat and health.

March 14, 2016 – Three months ago I got some crappy health news: an A1C level of 5.9, which is officially in the prediabetic range. (5.7–6.4; 6.5+ is officially diabetes). The A1C test represents your average blood sugar level over the previous three months. So last week I repeated the test. This time it was 5.6, the maximum level considered normal. I am no longer prediabetic. I wrote about the first part of this journey.

February 19, 2016 – There are countless books written on weight loss but none addresses the true cause of weight gain like “Always Hungry?” This book is a paradigm shift in the conventional view of obesity. Dr. Ludwig explains why the cause and effect need to be reversed in the current obesity model. Hunger, he shows, is not the cause but rather a consequence of obesity. His insight into the human metabolism along with his cutting edge research illustrates the point quite clearly.

February 11, 2016 – Weight loss is more than just calories in calories out. From time to time most of us feel the urge to shed a few pounds but get confused by the vast array of different dieting options available to us. In this new book, author David Ludwig, professor of paediatrics and nutrition at Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts, describes his approach to losing weight.

January 15, 2016 – If you’re going to buy a weight-loss book this year, make it this one. Author David Ludwig is a noted endocrinologist, researcher, and Harvard Medical School professor, and he’s sharing everything he knows about a healthy diet. There’s no calorie counting or gimmicks involved. Instead, it’s focused on how to eat in the best way for your body’s optimal health.

New Year: New ‘Health’ Reads 

– Anita Mirchandani

January 14, 2016 – Written by an endocrinologist, Dr. David Ludwig explains why the word “diet” doesn’t always work. There have been plenty of times where I’ve eaten meals and been surprised that I’m hungry so soon after and then forcing me to re-evaluate what I’ve eaten. In this book, you will learn fat cells play a key role in determining how much weight you gain or lose essentially explaining that low-fat diets work against you. The book contains excellent advice, real-life testimonials, meal prep worksheets, recipes and a complete phase-by-phase eating chart.
