It's good. Allen Zadoff is funny, honest, and earnest in this very short [it's 178 pages] "memoir meets advice" book. This isn't the first time [won't be the last, either] I've read stories of food addiction. It's also not the first time I've read/learned the concept of red/yellow/green foods/behaviors. It is the first time that an author has said [paraphrasing here] "it worked for me, it probably won't work for you; but try to find your own way." ( )

The journey of a compulsive overeater, and how there is no perfect "diet". A very quick read. Information was insightful and easy to digest (no pun intended). I really liked the way that Zadoff was sure to express that this was not a fix-all, but simply his story with hopes that you may see bits of yourself in his story and if you do provide some choices of what you may choose to do with that this knowledge. I definitely could see glimpses of myself in this book and I have walked away with a new level of consciousness. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0738211052, Hardcover)

Allen Zadoff spent years reasoning that a big, healthy man should have a big, healthy appetite and that his rapidly increasing girth was no more than a regular guy thing. At 350 pounds, however, it became clear that what had started as a little weight problem was destroying his life. Desperate to find a new way of living that would carry him into thin and beyond, Zadoff began to focus less on what he ate, and more on the physical and emotional underpinnings of what he came to understand as a disease. The pounds melted away, and so began the adventure of a lifetime. Following Zadoff’s incredible journey both up and down the scale, Hungry blends his personal story with surprising strategies for weight loss success; it is as laugh-out-loud funny as it is inspirational.
