Overview

Basis for the upcoming PBS Special!

After promoting this message worldwide for thirty years, bestselling author Deepak Chopra focuses on the huge problem of weight control in America with exciting new concepts. What Are You Hungry For? is the breakthrough book that can bring weight under effortless control by linking it to personal fulfillment in every area of a reader's life.
 
What are you hungry for? Food? Love? Self-esteem?  Peace? In this manual for "higher health," based on the latest findings in both mainstream and alternative medicine, Deepak Chopra creates a vision of weight loss based on a deeper awareness of why people overeat - because they are trying to find satisfaction and wind up using food as a substitute for real fulfillment.  Repudiating the failed approaches of crash dieting and all forms of deprivation, Chopra's new book aims directly at the problem of finding fulfillment.  When that problem is solved, he argues, normal eating falls into place automatically, and the entire system of mind and body achieves what it really desires.
 
“Everyone’s life story is complicated, and the best intentions go astray because people find it hard to change,” writes Chopra. “Bad habits, like bad memories, stick around stubbornly when we wish they’d go away. But you have a great motivation working for you, which is your desire for happiness. I define happiness as the state of fulfillment, and everyone wants to be fulfilled. If you keep your eye on this, your most basic motivation, then the choices you make come down to a single question: “What am I hungry for?” Your true desire will lead you in the right direction. False desires lead in the wrong direction.”
 
Wherever you are in life, this book will help point you in that right direction.

Deepak Chopra never fails to deliver an accomplished text of personal fulfillment. This isn't another diet book. This text looks into the hidden areas in a person's psyche that may contribute to one's weight loss or gain. If there is a lack in one's life, you will fill this void with comfort food. It's as simple as that. Do read this fast-moving pace book that is both physically and mentally enlightening.

This book has a lot of good information in it. I especially liked the chapter on eating in the Ayurvedic way and the entire second half is about mindfullness in your life and I liked that as well. As for weight loss? Chopra is saying that if you look to your inner self to find out why you eat out of boredom or anxiety and if you fix that the weight will come off easily. He writes a little on meditation, but there are better resources for that. I mostly read this to bolster my beliefs on the foods I should be eating (whole, natural).
