The Hungry Brain

Outsmarting the Instincts That Make Us Overeat


Formats & editions


An entertaining, smart-thinking and practical investigation into the neuro-triggers that cause us to overeat – and how to switch them off.

'ESSENTIAL'
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?

This book has the answers.

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.

‘Many people have influenced my thinking on human nutrition and metabolism, but Stephan is the one person who has completely altered my understanding of why we get fat.’
Robb Wolf, author of the New York Times bestseller The Paleo Solution

'For those interested in the complex science of overeating, it is essential'
