—The New York Times

Have you ever wished you could just stop eating the cake, even as you put another forkful in your mouth? Have you ever wondered why exactly you are still eating chips when you are definitely full?

The Hungry Brain isn’t about denying yourself the food you love, or never eating pudding again, but the bottom line is that we often eat too much and don’t really know why; Guyenet will help the reader to understand exactly why – and more importantly, what to do about it.

Robb Wolf, author of the New York Times bestseller The Paleo Solution

‘For those interested in the complex science of overeating, it is essential’
The New York Times

A worthwhile addition and counterpoint to the carbs v fat debate A nice level-headed, analytical counterpoint to all the dogmatic literature on carbs v fat (I’ve read widely from Taubes, Tcheiholz, etc).Having heard Stephan on a podcast, I’m pleased to have read the book. He takes a robust scientific approach, without any apparent axes to grind, and genuinely helped my understanding of the subject. At the expense of offering quick fixes / miracle answers, he takes an admirably balanced approach and offers some helpful practical guidance for those…
