Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Mar 29, Ieva Ursulyte rated it did not like it. If I could rate that book as minus 5 stars, I would. Complete nonsense – just terrible pile of illogical thoughts.
God, animals, mother nature, apes And I simply hate such brain washing. Read it till the end simply because Eashweigh am stubborn and wanted to see what’s at the end. I very much hope that the suggestions in the book will do no harm to people and they will not end up slim, but very sick.
What in the world did I just read??? I still celebrate that every year with a small dinner party. So, after I gained weight after, well, shit happened in life, medication etc, weight which I can’t seem to lose, I thought, maybe Carr can help me. But man, was I wrong. While reading I kept a list of all the brainwashing bs in this book, thinking I would use that for my review, but I d 1 star O. While reading I kept a list of all the brainwashing bs in this book, thinking I would use that for my review, but I don’t even know where that list is anymore and I really don’t feel like going over those points again.
I’m sincerely glad for all of them and so I truly believe that if you think this book will help you, then you should definitely read it, because I believe in rasyweigh whatever it is that helps you reach your goal. Because of this I thought about giving it an additional half star, so 1. Sep easyweign, Vicki rated it really liked it. I read this book over a year ago and put it into practice straight away, I have never felt so good about myself, I am not only much thinner but I also no longer suffer from migraines or constant colds.
I am a meat eater and have found the combining of different foods means i no longer suffer that horrible bloated feeling after eating. The book itself was difficult to read, I found it hard to get through but it works so I think it’s worth it.

My review of: Lose Weight Now – The Easy Way – A Book By Allen Carr
Nov 08, Christel Petersen rated it did not like it Shelves: The worst book I’ve ever read on this subject! I couldn’t even finish it – to me it was the same kind of brain washing that he speaks so pasionately against, only allej a different perspektive, namely that all food is bad for you, except raw vegetables Jun 10, Janine rated it it was ok. Allen Carr’s Easy way to quit smoking helped me pack in the cigarettes.
I figured if he can fix my smoking addiction he can help me with over eating. So far so good, I am half way through. As I am a Vegan I can understand the subject of cows milk is for calves and raw food is best. I really like how he explains things and uses a car as a metaphor for allej bodies. In the section that I have just read he is explaining why it is best to eat when you are hungry.
Allen Carr’s Easyweigh to Lose Weight
At first I wanted to shake my head an Allen Carr’s Easy easweigh to quit smoking helped me pack in the cigarettes. At first I wanted to shake my head and say no its not! I eat so much more when I am “Starving” then when I allne kinda hungry. Then I realised I over eat either way. So far what he has to say is striking a cord with me. I really do hope by the end of this book I can put it down with a similar revelation that I had when finishing the easy way to quit smoking.
After reading this book: It did not move me as much as his easy way to quit smoking book did. I will take on his advice, I have started only having fruit in the morning and as I am a vegan it is really easy for me to separate foods.
How To Lose Weight | Weight Loss Clinic – Allen Carr’s Easyway
I lent this book to my Mam, she read it on the weekend and did not like this at all. My Mam quit smoking about 23 years ago and found that Carr’s constant mention of cigarettes was making her want to smoke again! I do not think I would recommend this book to other readers unless they are vegetarian as some of Carr’s suggestions are a tad hard to swallow if you are a big meat eater.
Just a little bit disappointed with this book. Dec 24, S. This book started off with allsn intentions but failed to deliver because the conclusion was just one more diet. If you want to lose weight without dieting but instead through a lifestyle change, read Intuitive Eating. He’s done really great work, and I applaud him for the lasting change he’s easywelgh.
However, he took the principles of th Short assessment: However, he took the principles of that book and attempted to apply them to dieting. That alllen a great first step, but unfortunately, he both goes too far carg not far enough. Breaking through brainwashing is a key point in his stop smoking book, and in this one, he also sets the reader down the path to do just that. Among other things, he outlines how added sugar and salt keep those of us here in the Western world addicted to processed food.
I’ve had personal experience prior to reading this book with breaking free of pre-packaged and sugary foods because I had a food intolerance that didn’t allow me to eat more than a few grams of sugar in one meal or I would suffer painful consequences much like gluten or lactose intolerance.
I’m now well-versed in “ingredient-list-ese” and just how awful zllen ingredients are. If you’ve never really– really –let what’s in the ingredient list sink into your brain, it’s a carrr mind-boggling experience to go through.
It’s even tougher to change your entire lifestyle to cut out foods that add no nutritional value to your diet. It’s something you have to spend days or weeks wrapping your head around, and this book like the stop smoking book brings that information to your attention and allows you, if you want, to focus on the truth behind the crap the food industry is shoveling down our throats.
I would give this book four stars if that’s where he ended it. However, he goes off the rails in two ways: I found a factually inaccurate statement in the book about the metabolism and chemical properties of sugar, which calls into question everything else he’s presented as fact. He takes his recommendations too far and tells the reader that if you’re going to revise your eating habits, you’re going to have to change your diet to view spoiler [vegan hide spoiler ].
The first error lowers the impact of his statements about everything, and the second ensures that the readers stays in the diet trap. And I’m not so sure about the arguments he presents for his particular diet, either. Factually Inaccurate Statement Here is the factually inaccurate statement, quoted from the book: The natural sugar in unprocessed foods such as fruit is easily digest and like all other nutrients, travels through the body and feeds it.
In its natural form, it’s the primary fuel for your mind. When you eat fruit, the natural sugar, fructose, enters your body, combined with fibre and water. These act together to create the glucose necessary for your brain to function. Monosaccharidesor the simplest unit of sugar, come in different chemical configurations, but each one has its own unique properties. Glucose is a monosaccharide and fructose is a monosaccharide. They and other monosaccharides combine to form di- and polysaccharides.
Saying that fructose combines with stuff to create glucose is like saying that a neutron combines with stuff to create a proton, or flour combines with stuff to create eggs.
That’s just not how it works, period. They do, however, exist in different amounts in different fruits, which is, I suppose, how he got confused. Apples have a large amount of fructose and a small amount of glucose, whereas blueberries have a large amount of glucose and a smaller amount of fructose. Glucose and fructose chemically bonded together create the disaccharide sucrosewhich is the chemical name for white sugar.
They also have different names: Dextrose and corn syrup are both names for glucose; whereas high fructose corn syrup is primarily fructose. I could continue, but I won’t, since this is supposed to be a book review. Suffice it to say that this factually inaccurate statement calls into question the rest of his assertions.
He doesn’t include footnotes or cite sources. So every time he says, “Your body works this way,” I got more and more dubious. Sure, some of it I knew to be true, but a lot of it, I couldn’t trust.
Still, I don’t want to throw the baby out with the bathwater.
As I said at the beginning, he is indeed correct about the ridiculous amount of nutrition-free ingredients in processed and packaged food, and it is best to completely avoid them. Recommendation for car New Diet The book perpetuates the negativity around eating that you truly need to break free of if you’re going to lose weight and be happy without dieting.
