Publisher's Summary

Do you eat when you're not hungry? Or when you're angry and upset? Do you eat to control your feelings?

Allen Carr's Easyway is the most successful self-help stop-smoking method of all time. It has helped millions of smokers all over the world to quit and has since been used to treat other addictions such as drinking and gambling. Allen Carr's Easyway method works by unravelling the brainwashing that leads us to desire the very thing that is harming us, meaning that we are freed from the addiction rather than merely restricting our behaviour. 

The Easyway method has now been applied to the problem of emotional eating. With Allen Carr's Easyway method, you can eat as much of your favourite foods as you want, whenever you want, as often as you want and be the exact weight you want to be, without dieting, special exercise, using willpower or feeling deprived. 

Do you find that difficult to believe? Listen to this audiobook.

A book about absolutely nothing.

Worst piece of nothing I've ever listened to. They talk around the solution in circles but never get to it. Don't waste your time or money.

It works!

I have struggled with emotional eating and binge eating for as long as I can remember. I listened to this book about 6 weeks ago and I honestly believe things have changed. I have had some incredibly challenging days since completing this book and have not turned to food to cope at all. I've rediscovered a love for fresh fruit- even apples which I haven't enjoyed in years. I read the easy way to quit smoking almost 3 years ago and have been free of it since then, also quit drinking using same principles. The easyway works.

I found the voice a bit annoying to begin with. The book worked and for that, it's priceless!

Very helpful

First of all, the review that I saw here makes me believe that the reviewer was having a rather cranky day.

I have been battling emotional eating for over 39 years. I have done tons of self help books and programs. You would think by now, that I've heard it all. This book helped me greatly and has reminded me of great things that I need to constantly remember to stay well. Read it and re-read it as much as you can

Great book if its your first one

I believe that this book could be super helpful to many people, just like “easy way to quit smoking” was helpful to me. What I didn’t expect is for these two books to be quite so similar. Some concepts were even phrased exactly the same with words switched, e.g. eating vs smoking, food vs nicotine. I don’t regret listening to it though, because every bit of advise helps and yes, same principles can be applied to different types of addiction.

A Revelation

I’ve never written a book review before but I literally cried after reading this book, I’m on the verge of tearing up again because in a matter of 6 and a half hours It’s helped me free myself from a lifetime of brainwashing around food. Allen Carr and his organization are nothing short of a blessing for former addicts like myself. Thank you.

Not Really Helpful

I quit smoking with the easy way to quit smoking and it was great. I thought this would be helpful for me the same way. Unfortunately this was very redundant and didn't have many new process and even each chapter in this book is posing the same ideas. I think they mentioned drug and cigarette addictions more than emotional eating. Id think it can be sumed up in two or three chapters but they drug it on for way too long. I felt like I replayed chapter 3 but it says I'm in chapter 4 so I feel like they are way to similar to even tell the difference. I'd be curious to break down the main points in each chapter to see if there are unique points or just repeated information stated differently.

I enjoyed the narrator because I am American, the way things were pronounced and words we don't use in America was fun to listen to.

Freedom

I literally love this author. Thanks to his teachings on how addictions work I stopped smoking, drinking alcohol and emotional eating. I read the specific books for each addiction.
I’m so grateful and thankful because I can maximize my life and live it at the full potential!

Should be called Quit Eating Junk Food

I got this as am a Yo yo dieter who craves bad food and thinks of it as a treat. I was deprived of food as a child.
This talks constantly about junk food which I don't eat and never eat takeaway food. I have an emotional attachment with food which I thought this would address and it doesn't.

It also talks about smoking and alcohol both of which I have given up in the past, problem is you don't die if you give them up, but you do if you stop eating.

The tips are basically mindful eating.

Save your credits and don't bother buying.

I get it, but still

Why the constant preaching on smoking? I get the analogy but it's waaaay overused. Also, what's the point of the witchy narration? She sounds like a smoker, too - which is weird when she speaks about smoking 99% of the time. Half of the book is mainly "Easy Way is better than x" --- well then, prove it, stop comparing and talk about your damn Way. Good-ish info but all of these things made me want to scream

Changed my life

I started this book in December 22nd after a friend recommended it. I was skeptical but thought I’d listen to it. Over night my relationship with food changed. Over Xmas I didn’t comfort eat. I didn’t eat any treats, cakes or even mince pies. And never felt deprived or reliant on will power! It just seemed normal not to want it.
For anyone who feels shackled to comfort food; this is the book to release you. Be open minded. Listen to it all. Don’t skip any. And don’t try and combine plans and you will love it!

I don’t understand why this brand is popular

I find the narrator irritating, the content slightly patronizing,yes it is common sense and perhaps I was expecting more but it’s fair to say I struggle to listen to this/ my perspective hasn’t expanded or changed /I don’t understand the urge to overeat better and I’m itching to return this title

Very underwhelmed

Thought provoking but ultimately very repetitive and ineffective. I am very open-minded and keen to lose weight but this didn't really have much of an impact on my mindset. quite disappointed.

Where’s the advice?

There is only really one message in this book: “you have been brainwashed to think junk food is pleasurable, but it isn’t, so stop eating it and you’ll feel better”. That it, repeated over and over for 6 hours.

The book constantly dangles the “easy way method” as the solution to stopping yourself from emotional eating but I’m 4 hours in and I still have no idea what the “easy way method” actually is. There’s no practical advice for overcoming your impulses or urges simply because the book says “when you realise you’ve been brainwashed, you won’t have any urges”. Okay…?! It’s the equivalent of just saying the opposite to whatever someone says. “I feel sad” “no you don’t” “wow I’m fixed”.

The book also begins by apologising for comparing emotional eating to drug abuse but promises that it will only be lightly used to illustrate a point. Not true. It actually frequently refers to heroin addiction as a comparison to food addiction.

Weird book.

I can't believe how quickly it changed my thinking

It's one of those books I think everyone should read. The lessons within it are so obvious but I had never looked at my eating in that way before. I haven't finished it yet but already my whole approach to eating has changed because it completely makes sense. It's like a light bulb moment which not only makes you reflect on your own way of living but you start to see what others are doing too. I'm at risk of becoming a preacher of his ideas because they are so life changing ( I'm currently resisting as I don't want to be THAT person ha ha ha).

My only negative feedback really is that I think I would have preferred a man to narrate it, and just because (this maybe strange) I wanted to feel more like the author talking to me about his experiences as this this would make it more effective in my head, rather than me being aware that it was diluted but this second person reading his words.
