Book Description

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant insights and practical nutrition November 13, 2013
Format:Hardcover
This is another classic Chopra volume and it has many facets integrated into its diverse insights.
Deepak is returning to the issues of health and happiness and now food as a complex and yet basic system
requiring mindful living and practice.

Nothing can be more basic than "food and nutrition and taste" and the many elements associated with food including emotions and relations.
I bought this book the day it was released and have listened to the audio version two times already ( by the 2nd day it was out)

In this brilliant book Dr. Chopra uses his medical background as well as his studies in Ayurveda and nutrition sciences and also current research about GMO's and organic vs non-organic in a non-dogmatic , yet precise manner to inform and enlighten the reader in some of the new intricacies of food politics and advertising.

He then offers solutions for the SAD diet and the processed sugar and fat laden lifeless food of the market while listing a colorful array of alternatives which draw much from the seeming less endless array of raw and fresh fruits and vegetables (and their rich content of phyto-nutrients) and other plant material and other wise choices for those seeking a real food alternative to "diets" that don't work. Dr Chopra uses the Phrase "Awareness eating to Awareness living"

Yet just when this seems to be a book about diet and fresh foods and choices it starts a rich pattern of integrating all aspects of "nourishment" in the broadest sense and continues to integrate the many aspects of living that and lifestyle as well as habits that can affect our well-being.

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS TIME IT'S FOR REAL! November 15, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A book that isn't like the myriad of diet books & workout videos out there! Instantly, you loose the guilt and complexity of diet failures! There's lots of love in this book that's easily transferred to the reader to achieve greater understanding & love for our own spirit/soul & bodies. There is no favorite chapter in this book because each one opens a door of ah-ha moments that fit perfectly with everyday scenarios. I read the book in 2 days....couldn't put it down....didn't WANT to put it down! Permission to EMBRACE who I am...where I am AT THIS MOMENT! The ENLIGHTENMENT & PURITY introduced with simple explanations & visualizations take away the need for exhausting medical & soul searches about "what's happening to my body?" I GOT THE MESSAGE THIS TIME & it's a message that easy to apply with a DAILY awareness that I enjoy. Here's to a new healthy life that makes me happier than I could ever imagine....ps: When I made CONSCIOUS decisions about what no longer works with my new lifestyle, I had even more enjoyment by packing brown bag lunches and finding those that were homeless to distribute the much wanted food that no longer worked with my own awarenesses. Thank you Deepak Chopra!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fufillment is the path to weight loss. December 9, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Its disguised as a diet book, but in reality its a book about self "fufillment". Like I'm sure so many people in the world do, when they get stressed, they turn to food.

This book opened my eyes to the habits that probably 90% of people do. Instead of eating to fufill a need, because we're bored, angry, tired, or depressed, Deepak tells you to take a step back, take a deep breath and do some soul searching "what do I really want with my life?" .

Don't get me wrong there's plenty of diet advice.... Deepak gets you to be aware of what you eat, and that you're allowed to eat crappy food every once in a while. Cold turkey NEVER works when dieting, it only leads to crash and burn.

Overall amazing book and made me buy some of his other work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intense and though provoking as usual November 14, 2013
By DSophia
Format:Hardcover
I really enjoy reading Chopra's books, they are easy to read but always thought provoking. Chopra advocates mindful eating and explains the physical and psychological effects of fast foods and eating on the go. He's empathetic to the woes and hardships of a chronic dieter (me!) and gives you great tips on how to stay motivated and on track. I am on day 25 of the Fast Metabolism Diet (which is great by the way) and What are you Hungry for? is really in sync with Haylie Pomroy's approach to wholesome eating. Chopra also delves into the Ayurvedic diet and teaches you how to incorporate the practices into your daily life. He states through and through that what you think is hunger for food is usually a hunger for something much larger, like the cafe you've always wanted to open, the dream job you were too scared to interview for or the fun and exciting relationship you never thought you'd have. The main focus of the book is mindfulness, when you're aware and present in each moment you can slowly but surely shift out of your comfort zone and start asking the questions that matter.
