Hungry for More: Stories and Science to Inspire Weight Loss From the Inside Out: More than Just a Diet Book
When I heard Dr. Youdim is writing a book, I assumed it is going to be written about dieting. When I read the book, I realized how wrong I was. This book is not a self help diet book. It is not to teach you what and how to eat. It is not to tell you how to count your calories or how to eat less carbs or fat. Reading this book, you can tell that Dr. Youdim has been dedicated and in addition to her experience in her field of medicine, she has spent a lot of hours studying the science behind the stress of eating and weight gains. Dr. Youdim understands and has written a book about subjects that resonates with many of us and our feelings. I appreciated her honesty and openness to read about her own personal experiences. She has touched all of us readers, in one way or the other. I identified with several segments of the book myself. As a young child I always felt I was heavier than my friends at school and sometimes if asked, I wanted to lie about my age. In my teen years, when I first came to this country, I missed my family and my friends so much that I gained a lot of weight in a very short time. Being a student in a new country and a new school with limited knowledge of English language, trying to prove myself, obviously, didn’t help.I highly recommend Dr. Youdim’s book as all readers will find a section or a topic that they can identify with. If not several topics, at least one that will give comfort to the reader that regardless of what issue it is that he or she has to overcome; starting a new job and having to prove oneself; starting a new family; having and raising children; insecurities; not having enough time for yourself and your family; and more, he or she is not alone in their struggles.I am looking forward to her next book.Minoo M.
