Always Hungry

Always Hungry

This book exposes the flawed logic behind using dieting for sustainable weight loss. After explaining the physiology of reversing insulin resistance, controlling appetite, and retraining fat cell function, the author has an eating plan and recipes to reverse the physiological problems. The solutions are based upon Dr. David Ludwig’s weight loss research at Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School.
