Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Allen Carr was an accountant who smoked 100 cigarettes a day until he broke the habit and wrote a series of bestselling books. He built a hugely successful network of stop smoking clinics across the world and is the author of The Easy Way to Stop Smoking, How to Stop Your Child Smoking and The Easy Way to Enjoy Flying. Allen Carr was diagnosed with lung cancer in the summer of 2006 and died in November of the same year. Many thought it likely that the years he spent curing smokers in smoke-filled sessions at his clinics must have contributed to this illness, but Allen Carr remained positive, 'Given that I am informed that I have cured at least 10 million smokers on a conservative estimation, it's a price worth paying.'

More About the Author

Allen Carr was an accountant and smoked 100 cigarettes a day until he gave up and wrote this bestselling book. He has built a hugely successful network of stop-smoking clinics across the world and is the author of "The Only Way to Stop Smoking," "How to Stop Your Child Smoking," "The Easy Way to Enjoy Flying" and "The Easyweigh to Lose Weight." In 2004 Allen published his bestselling autobiography "Packing It In" (Michael Joseph). He was diagnosed with lung cancer in the summer of 2006 and died in November of the same year. It seems likely that the years he spent curing smokers in smoke-filled sessions at his clinics must have contributed to this illness, but Allen Carr remained positive; 'Given that I am informed that I have cured at least 10 million smokers on a conservative estimation, it's a price worth paying.'

Easy way has some of the key concepts of Easy way to stop smoking, which is common sense and very logical.
GM
I respect vegans and vegetarians but when reading a book on how to lose weight, I really don't want to hear this argument.
Amazon Customer
Eating the way the book describes is very satisfying and I find that I actually crave healthy foods instead of junk food.

I finished reading this book today, but its effects have already taken effect: I lost 10 pounds in 2 months. But the most important thing about the book is the way concepts are assimilated and you can really FEEL the changes inside. I think this is just the beginning of a healthy way of eating for years to come. Losing weight will just be one consequence. I had read Fit for Life in the 80's and Allen Carr's book transmits a similar concept, in a different way. I strongly recommend this book even if you are not overweight, for you and your family, specially if you are a parent.

OK, so I quit smoking three years ago with the help of Allen Carr's most famous book The Easy Way to Stop Smoking. This book is more common sense along the same lines. If you already know how to eat right but you're suffering from food addictions, then read this book. You probably already know that junk food is junk. And you probably already realize that you eat it for bad reasons. Just like with smoking, if you can convince yourself to believe in your heart and your gut what you already believe in your head, then you can free yourself from addiction. Personally, I've been losing weight and eating right ever since I read this about a month ago.

If you want to look at this material as hokey and silly, then you're probably right that it is. But if you want to better yourself then you can choose to overlook the cheesiness of some of what Mr. Carr says and focus on the value of the core message. And don't just do whatever he says, let your critical mind evaluate it all and figure out what is really best for you. And don't argue with the author in your head - argue with your own addiction.

There is another book called The Vitamin Cure for Alcoholism that I read along with this. And I followed its advice on what vitamins to take. That book applies to sugar addictions including but not limited to alcoholism. http://www.amazon.com/Vitamin-Cure-Alcoholism-Nutrition-Supplementation/dp/159120254X

Allen Carr was an amazing man. Only after his death has he helped me, but he has helped me a lot.

Let me preface this with the fact that I am a huge supporter of Allen Carr. I quit smoking and drinking w/ his books, and although I don't really have a huge weight problem, I was compelled to at least check out easyweigh. As a a result of this book (and others) I have managed to lose about 15lbs and feel better than ever. Had I never read Allen Carr's other books, I don't think this book would have done much for me on it's own. Yes... Easyweigh is quite bonkers at times. It is unfortunate that Easyweigh was not developed further because it did have a lot of potential.... it's almost as if he had run out of steam. Unfortunately, there is too much ranting and disconnected and incomplete thoughts throughout. However, since I am familar w/ the ways of Carr, I could pick and choose the gems of wisdom that do in fact exist. I would still recommened checking the book out, especially if are familiar with Easyway in general. Easyweigh is certainly not strong enough to stand on its own as a guide to better nutrition, but is great supplemental tool and worth every penny. Good Luck!

I didn't find this book on the same level as his smoking and drinking books but it was good. All of his arguments were explained clearly, even if I didn't agree with them. I liked that he took a stance of moderation on this topic. Overall, it has motivated me to eat healthier. I am much more conscious of what I put in my mouth.

Allen Carr's EASY WAY TO STOP SMOKING is, by far, the
best book I've ever read on that topic . . . it has helped
several people that I know kick the urge to smoke.

So I was curious to see if the author could be of similar help
to people with weight issues . . . I therefore obtained another
book he has written. ALLEN CARR'S EASYWEIGH TO LOSE
WEIGHT, in attempt to see if it made as much sense
as his other effort.

Though perhaps not quite as good, I still think it has a lot to offer . . . Carr
goes through each of the reasons that people tend to overeat, then
quite clearly and logically points out why they make little
sense . . . he also states that:

* You can eat as much of your favorite foods as you want to, as often as
you want, and be the exact weight that you want to be, without having
to diet or undergo special exercise or even having to use willpower
or discipline.

How is this possible? The key is as follows:

* Because our brainwashed minds have confused ideas about the reasons
why we eat, we try to clear our plates at each and every course of the meal.
If you stick to the principle of eating when you are hungry and stopping when
you have satisfied that hunger, you will not only enjoy every meal, but you
will have no weight problems. However, I would emphasize that I said stop
eating when you have satisfied your hunger, and not your gluttony. Does
this still make you feel deprived? Just think about it. Is this really a
restriction? Why would you even want to eat if you weren't hungry? Get
it clearly into your mind: Eating is pleasurable--over-eating is objectionable.
