Présentation de l'éditeur

The body's built-in reward system, driven by the chemical dopamine, is a fascinating adaptation: It tells us to do more of the things that give us pleasure. Creative energy, falling in love, entrepreneurship, and even the continued propagation of the human race are driven by this system . . . just as is, unfortunately, the urge to overeat.

In The Hunger Fix, Dr. Pam Peeke uses the latest neuroscience to explain how unhealthy food and behavioral "fixes" have gotten us ensnared in a vicious cycle of overeating and addiction. She even shows that dopamine rushes in the body work exactly the same way with food as with cocaine. Luckily, we are all capable of rewiring, and the very same dopamine-driven system can be used to reward us for healthful, exciting, and fulfilling activities.

The Hunger Fix lays out a science-based, three-stage plan to break the addiction to false fixes and replace them with healthier actions. Fitness guides, meal plans, and recipes are constructed to bolster the growth of new neurons and stimulate the body's reward system. Gradually, healthy fixes like meditating, going for a run, laughing, and learning a new language will replace the junk food, couch time, and other bad habits that leave us unhappy and overweight.

Packed with practical tips, useful advice, and plenty of wit, wisdom, and inspiring stories of those who have successfully transformed their bodies, The Hunger Fix is a life-changing program for anyone (of any size) trapped by food obsession and the urge to overeat.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Hunger Fix is a life saver! 25 septembre 2012
Par Debby A. Rosenfeld - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
The tools in the Hunger Fix saved my life. Five years ago, Dr. Peeke was the first Dr. I ever met who acknowledged flat out that food can legitimately be addictive. What a relief! All of those years, and countless diets, where I tried desperately to eat in moderation. I'd eat my Jenny Craig lemon cake, love every bite, and wonder why, the next day I was craving sweets at 3:00. In my experience craving leads to eating, and eating the wrong foods leads to bingeing. This is fueled by the societal mantra that desert food, or high fat salty food is a reward. A recent McDonalds billboard showed a huge box of French fries with the text: HAPPINESS. Really?

What I've learned from Dr. Peeke, is that all of the advertising hype about high fat food, candy and ice-cream, as a "well deserved reward" is false. Food is not a true reward, unless it's food that makes you feel good later. Where is the reward in feeling too full, bloated, shaky, wired, drowsy, guilty or depressed? What is the reward in never being satisfied with sugar, no matter how much we eat? Maybe that split second after the first bite is bliss-full, but with food addiction, that delicious bite quickly turns into eating chaos.

I think in this country we've been trained to become so disassociated from our bodies that often all we think about is how something tastes, and the experience of eating it. I know when I weighed 212 pounds (at 5 foot 1  inches) I wasn't thinking about the effect that the food was having on my body--. I was using food to keep myself from feeling bad. I would feel a bit calmer after satisfying the burning insane craving, but of course, the bad feelings always came back--multiplied. That is not a reward. It's what Dr. Peeke has termed, a FALSE FIX.

In the Hunger Fix, Dr. Peeke will show you how to switch up your reward thinking. You'll start to crave healthy rewards, such as enjoying reaching fitness goals, eating easy to prepare whole foods that will nurture your mind and body, and simple meditation. You will experience excitement when those new lifestyle choices result in a renewed sense of purpose, evenness, and pride. And when it doesn't go as planned, Dr. Peeke will teach you how to become a "master re-grouper".

Using Dr. Peeke's tools, I've taken off 65 pounds of unwanted fat, and even more importantly have been able to get off of the rollercoaster of binge eating.

Sure, those trigger foods still look appealing, but now when I visualize how they will play out in havoc on my mind and body, I look for the true reward, which is maintaining a sense of balance and success. (and eating delicious and truly satisfying non-addictive food)

Dr. Peeke will teach you how to achieve these goals. It will take some effort at first, like any new plan does. The difference is that this is a method of living that can be sustained for a lifetime.

Also, I am not a cook. The foods that I eat are easy, satisfying, and nurturing. I promise you, I do not feel deprived by avoiding trigger foods. If you have a food addiction issue, you may be like me and try to fight it. But once you realize "it is what it is," you can learn to live with it, and you can love your life more than ever.

Since I've been working with the methods Dr. Peeke outlines in The Hunger Fix, I've not only lost weight, but my Fibromyalgia has improved significantly. I've run a 5k, 10k and am training for my 2nd half marathon. I never was a runner. I am much more active with my kids. So many new discoveries are waiting when you get out of the food fog, and start caring for yourself with healthy rewards.

As far as I can see it, the number one first step to enjoying your life free from the destructiveness of food addiction, is to pick up a copy of The Hunger Fix! It's a well written, insightful, and easy to follow set of tools that will lead to the truest type of reward--a healthy and happy life.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Legitimate At Last 15 octobre 2012

As a 12-step member for compulsive overeating, it has been a refreshing journey to watch the science finally culminate in this extraordinarily useful and positive survey of a weight -- and life -- management plan. Dr. Peeke's focus on the brain-body should relieve millions of us that we are not as out of control as we are UNDER the control of something bigger than us: sugar, fats, salts, the mouth feel industry. I love it that she allows room for mess-ups that are a matter of shame (or pouring on more money) elsewhere, and that she doesn't push exercise for Stage One neophytes beyond the mild and, frankly, distracting.

I want to give this book to a lot of people, not all of them struggling with food or weight. It's about so much more than these things with plenty of evidence to back up the efficacy of dedicated exercise, music, meditation, sleep, getting out into the green world and other tools she suggests for rewarding the brain now deprived of its substance. Anyone who has wrestled with an addiction or depression should read this source guide on re-engineering the brain.

And my favorite take-away? The dopamine spike of binge food is at its highest in anticipation not in eating. Kinda puts the kaibosh on that quick run to the corner to keep that in mind.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 What a Relief! The Hunger Fix explains my problem! 9 octobre 2012
Par Mary - Publié sur Amazon.com
I thought I was going out of my mind. I've tried every diet and either drop some weight and gain it all back, or nothing happens. Whenever I'm around the sugar junk I cave. It's been hell walking around feeling full of shame and blame and guilt. Where's the willpower when I need it? When I read The Hunger Fix, Dr. Peeke made it clear. There's a real scientific basis for what happened to me. I felt such a relief, especially knowing I'm not the only one. Thank God for this book. I'm following Dr Peeke's Mind Mouth Muscle in detox right now and have already dropped 5 pounds in two weeks. I love the food plan and recipes. I thought I was condemned to salads forever. I see how to switch off the False Fixes for Healthy Fixes. Most importantly, I feel hope for the first time. My prefrontal cortex is focused. Heck, I didn't even know about that part of the brain until I read the book. I just wanted to share my news with all of you out there. Read the book and start your journey, too.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Advice for Overcoming Addiction to Junk Food 25 septembre 2012
Par Janet S - Publié sur Amazon.com
The Hunger Fix is a book about addiction to unhealthy foods that give us a pleasure fix that's not unlike our response to other drugs or nicotine. The book shows how different foods trigger neurochemicals (especially dopmine) that create a powerful reward sensation in our brains.

The book makes a good argument that diets which totally eliminate this natural reward sensation are doomed to fail. Instead, this book offers a 3-phase plan that tries to transition the reward from unhealthy choices (what the authors call "false fixes") to healthy ones. The idea is to gradually teach your brain to respond to food choices that are good for you.

The book has lots of good information and advice, although some of the specifics may seem a bit extreme or unrealistic some readers. For example, one table shows how you can transition from a bacon cheese burger (false fix), to a lean beef burger (first phase), to a turkey burger (second phase) and finally to a "bean" burger (final phase). That may be a little further than some people want to go, but the basic idea makes a lot of sense.

The "Hunger Fix" is not really a diet book, but it does have a meal plan chapter and it includes about 75 recipes. The main value of the book is the information on overcoming junk food addiction.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I've lost 37 pounds in 5 months 5 octobre 2013
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Some of the reviews complained that the reading was a little dry and scientific, and that they didn't enjoy the book. That's true. It is a little dry, but I wasn't really planning to be entertained by it. I wanted to learn from it, maybe understand myself and my habits a little bit better, and hopefully lose a little weight with it. It has done all that and more. I've dieted in the past many times. I've even lost significant weight before ( I lost 50 pounds 10 years ago and gained 70 back, then last year I lost 40 pounds and had already gained 10 back), but have never managed to feel in control or really BELIEVED that I could, not only lose the weight, but also keep it off. This time it's different.

My total weight loss goal is 110 pounds. As of now, I've lost 76.2 pounds, and I KNOW I will lose the rest. Part of that loss was from before I read this book, but I struggled for every bit of it, still had trouble with binge eating, and had not only stopped losing weight, but I was gaining it back, already. I felt lost, hopeless, and scared that I would be right back where I started. Someone recommended this book to me, and I thought I might as well read it, because it couldn't really make things worse. I am so glad that I did. It's not easy. I even cried a few times, because I really took a hard look at what I had been doing to myself. It asks a lot from you, especially during detox, and I had some really rough days and still do, but it has completely changed the way I look at food, at myself, and most of all changed what I feel I am capable of. I know that when I have a bad day, I will get past it and keep going.
