If you truly want to conquer your food demons, take control of your body and your health, and set yourself on the path to sustainable weight loss, "The Hunger Fix" is a must read."--David Zinczencko, Editor in Chief, "Men's Health "and author of "Eat This, Not That!""In "The Hunger Fix," Dr. Pam Peeke elegantly outlines a practical plan to navigate the treacherous tightrope over the food addiction ravine."--Dr. Mehmet Oz, Professor and Vice-Chair, Surgery, NYP Columbia University, and host of the "Dr. Oz" show "In her outstanding new book, "The Hunger Fix," Dr. Peeke provides those afflicted with overeating and food addiction with a powerful new tool--Transcendental Meditation--to rein in impulses and control cravings. Dr. Peeke wisely makes this simple, effortless technique a key part of her holistic plan to manage food addiction, empowering men and women to enjoy a lifelong recovery."--David Lynch, filmmaker and founder of the David Lynch Foundation "As I know from countless conversations with friends, family and Zumba enthusiasts all over the world, food addiction is a real issue. I could not be more pleased to see that, with this book, it is finally getting the attention it deserves. In "The Hunger Fix," Dr. Peeke not only dissects the science of food addiction in an easy-to-understand way, she also offers readers a pragmatic approach to triggering their own "EpiphaME" and embarking on a journey toward a healthier, happier life."--Alberto Perlman, Co-Founder and CEO, Zumba Fitness International ""The Hunger Fix" is revolutionary. Dr. Peeke applies her trademark holistic approach to food addiction, integrating cutting-edge mind and body science. This book offers a practical, realistic blueprint for the lifelong recovery each individual so richly des


Food addiction is real. Our body's built-in reward system, driven by the chemical dopamine, tells us to do things that give us pleasure: Creative energy, falling in love, entrepreneurship—even the continued procreation of the human race—are driven by this system. Unfortunately, so is the urge to overeat.

In The Hunger Fix, Dr. Pam Peeke uses the latest neuroscience to explain how, with repeated exposure coupled with life stresses, any food can become a "False Fix" and ensnare you in a vicious cycle of food obsession, overeating, and addiction. Indeed, she shows that dopamine rushes in the body can work exactly the same way with food as with drugs like cocaine.

Luckily, this very same system can be easily rewired to reward us with a healthy, happy, and fulfilling life. The Hunger Fix lays out a science-based three-stage plan that shows us how to break our addiction to False Fixes and replace them with healthier rewards. Fun fitness activities, customized meal plans, and delicious, satisfying recipes are designed to trigger the specific neurochemical cascade that stimulates your body's reward system, reclaims your hijacked brain, and supports your lifelong recovery. Energizing Healthy Fixes such as meditating, having sex, writing your own blog, or going for a walk on the beach—even laughing—quickly replace the junk food, couch time, and other self-destructive habits that can leave you 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 obsessions and the urge to overeat.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Hunger Fix is a life saver! 25. September 2012
Von Debby A. Rosenfeld - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
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 von 5 Sternen Legitimate At Last 15. Oktober 2012
Von Frances Kuffel - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
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 von 5 Sternen What a Relief! The Hunger Fix explains my problem! 9. Oktober 2012
Von Mary - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
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 von 5 Sternen Great Advice for Overcoming Addiction to Junk Food 25. September 2012
Von Janet S - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
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.

The Hunger Fix: The Three-Stage Detox and Recovery Plan for Overeating and Food Addiction

It was so nice to finally read a book that makes me understand why I over-eat and why I'm never satisfied when I do. It never occurred to me that my brain wiring was in the mix -- I thought I just didn't have any will power. After seeing Dr. Peeke on the Katie Couric show last week..and those brain scans of folks on heroin and folks who eat too much and the scans were identical...I knew I had to buy this book. Now I've got some ammo to attack my overeating problems and a way to "re-wire" my brain so that it is working with me, not against me. I like that the book has recipes so I have some ways to eat differently and hopefully eat better and I know that like all programs, I have to be the architect of the change I want to see in myself. Thanks Dr. Peeke for writing a book with science in it in such a way that non-scientists can benefit.
