This website supports a short book (available soon on Amazon). The book contains a new hypothesis about obesity, eating disorders, and food obsession. It explains why obesity has exploded in the last few decades and why losing weight and maintaining it seems so hard. It offers a simple method to restore healthy bodyweight and get on with the rest of your life.
The theory uses logic. It does not involve pills, supplementary purchases, or exercise regimes. It does not require restriction of calories, carbohydrates, fats, or proteins. It does not include hypnosis or positive thinking. Allen Carr, an accountant who cured his own nicotine addiction, helped thousands of people quit smoking instantly and happily after communicating information to them in such a way that their desire and behavior changed. Escape comes with truth; seeing the situation in a new light.
The hypothesis presented here is the result of twenty years of personal n=1 experimentation, combined with insights from scientific studies, books, and other resources, as referenced within.

Is it possible to eat normally and lose weight? This article provides evidence that intuitively eating normal, nourishing food, until full, results in the achievement of a healthy weight.
