Carnie goes on to discuss how she reestablished her career as a singer and actress in Hollywood -- which wasn't easy to do when The National Enquirer was practically staking out her house to catch her on "a fat day," or when some fans e-mailed her, pointing out that they could still see some upper-arm flab when she appeared on Entertainment Tonight. And as an unexpected bonus, the book includes Carnie's minute-by-minute description of posing for an upcoming issue of Playboy magazine, with the inevitable thoughts: Can I eat breakfast before posing nude? and This is not the kind of spread I'm used to! Carnie also reveals what inspired the much-awaited regrouping of Wilson Phillips, and explains how she's once again in perfect harmony with her sister, Wendy Wilson; and bandmate, Chynna Phillips. Finally, the last part of the book reveals the specific weight-loss plan that Carnie still uses to keep slim -- and she shows how anyone can follow this approach to sensible eating whether they've had weight-loss surgery or not. However, Carnie points out that this is certainly not the end of the road yet. She very honestly admits that she's "still hungry" for knowledge, love, acceptance -- and yes, a piece of chocolate or two.

I enjoyed this book very much. Carnie Wilson has a terrific sense of humor. There are parts of it that the 'average' person could not relate to, such as posing for Playboy, that I think could have been left out and was a bit self-serving on Carnie's part, but otherwise I enjoyed this book.Was this review helpful?

I didn't know what to expect from this book, but it was on a list of books for people who are thinking of having WLS. They way she wrote the book, you can tell that she is happier then ever. The book offers a unique way of showing the progression of her weight loss through a personal and unique diary. She also mentioned that she had to go through emotional issues to get where she was. I also like the last part of the book because it reveals the specific weight loss plan that she uses. I am glad that I read this book, because it is helping with my decision to have WLS someday.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Especially for someone who has gone through WLS, this book is a wonderful read. Carnie Wilson's writing style is down to earth, never too technical, and always heartfelt. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Even for people who have merely struggled with weight and not had WLS, I highly suggest reading this book!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

About two chapters into Carnie Wilson's latest memoir, 'I'm Still Hungry,' I realized that I had already read it...when it was entitled 'Gut Feelings.' Although I am a huge fan of Carnie Wilson (not really because of her music as much as because she was willing to expose herself--mentally and physically!--throughout the course of the last three years, I was sort of expecting more in her newest book. The appendix of the book is fabulous. I think I was hoping the entire book would be similar to the last 30 pages. Her humor is out of control!!! Only a bit of her humor shined through in her first book, and in 'I'm still hungry' she unleashed it completely. If you are considering WLS, or if you know someone who is considering it...or even if you know someone who has had it and you do not understand his/her reasoning, I suggest you read this! She puts into writing many of the feelings that WLS patients experience before, during, and after his/her life transformation.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
