Hungry: Lessons Learned on the Journey from Fat to Thin by Allen Zadoff
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A great peek into the secrets of a food addict; the classic overeater. Allen shows us the shameful secrets that he spent half a life time hiding as he struggled to overcome a life lived solely for the purpose of eating....as much as possible, as often as possible. As his health was being destroyed; as his social life was non existent; as his emotional life was stunted; as his professional life too was harmed....all by the toxic effects of a food addiction; Allen searched for the key: the magic piece of knowledge that would free him from the death grip of his own insatiable hunger. He found the answer that freed him in the understanding that he was a food junkie and that food did harmful things to his body, mind and emotions and that the only way to freedom was by avoiding certain foods altogether. Zadoff does not attempt to solve the possible food issues of his readers. His only goal is to shed insight...to maybe turn the light on for people who treat food like a drug; for whom food IS a drug. A quick read but enlightening and educational as well as enjoyable.
