Forget everything you’ve been taught about dieting. In Always Hungry?, renowned endocrinologist Dr. David Ludwig explains why traditional diets don’t work, and presents a radical new plan to help you lose weight without hunger, improve your health, and feel great.

For over two decades, Dr. Ludwig has been at the forefront of research into weight control. His groundbreaking studies show that overeating doesn’t make you fat; the process of getting fat makes you overeat.

Always Hungry? turns dieting on its head with a three-phase program that ignores calories and targets fat cells directly. The recipes and meal plan include luscious high-fat foods (like nuts and nut butters, full-fat dairy, avocados, and dark chocolate), savory proteins, and natural carbohydrates. This is dieting without deprivation.

Forget calories. Forget cravings. Forget dieting, Always Hungry? reveals a liberating new way to tame hunger and lose weight . . . for good.

  • Testimonials:

    I haven’t been that hungry since we started this diet. I actually haven’t been hungry at all.

    Matthew, 36, Roslindale, MA

  • Testimonials:

    There is more to this program than just a number on the scale. I think they should call this “the change your brain diet” because I have a totally different outlook on food, my body, my personal journey and wellness in general.

    Lisa, 52, Dedham, MA

  • Testimonials:

    Because I’m not constantly fighting cravings, I feel more free and less stressed. This happened overnight, within the first week of the diet. At first, I really couldn’t name it or even identify it, but I knew there was something different going on inside.

    Donna, 51, Selah, WA

  • Testimonials:

    Food no longer controls every waking moment of my life anymore…. I feel so good, so much better than I have felt in a very long time. I cannot remember the last time I looked so good – my face is defined, I have a neck again…I look in the mirror and like what I see now. 

    Angelica, 50, Sacramento, CA

  • Testimonials:

    My weight is down. My waist is down. My energy is up. My attitude is up. And what’s really awesome about it all is that I believe I can sustain this lifestyle…I am more healthy than ever and I don’t want to revert to my old self.

    Dan, 45, Lehi, UT

  • Testimonials:

    This program has proven to me that diet does matter…a lot! I have lost this weight without exercise. I never thought I could learn to eat differently, lose weight and actually enjoy the food I’m eating.

    Deborah, 52, Tewksberry, MA
