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.'

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 have struggled with my weight off and on for years. I had tremendous success in the past with the South Beach Diet, but like many others, I could not maintain the low carb lifestyle. To make matters worse, when I did try to go back on the low carb diet, I could not achieve the same weight loss that I achieved the first time I tried it. That resulted in only frustration and often more weight gain. After reading the reviews off and on for this book, I finally bought the book, read it, and put the lessons into practice. It has been two months and the results are in. I lost 22 lbs. I have been very surprised how easy it has been to eat the way the book describes.

Not only am I eating healthy, but I do not feel that I am missing anything. I always felt that I was missing something when I tried the low carb diet and I had constant cravings for carbs. I also grew tired of feeling weak all of the time. Eating the way the book describes is very satisfying and I find that I actually crave healthy foods instead of junk food. I also have plenty of energy and am able to complete my gym workouts easily.

In summary, this book really worked well for me. I would like to lose another seven pounds or so and then maintain the weight. Time will tell if I am able to keep the weight off.

**UPDATE**
It is now March 14th 2011 and I was able to not only lose the additional 7 pounds, but I have been able to keep it off. I am now maintaining a stable 185lbs. Even though I am wearing 34 " pants, which I have not seen since my early 20s, I could still stand to lose about 5 pounds or so. Now that the Winter is comming to an end, I am looking forward to getting outside for some excercise. I do eat meat, but not very often. I eat veggie patties, and burgers for lunch, and cook whole grain pasta with veges for dinner. It has been working well, and I don't have cravings like I did with the low carb diet.

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.
