The Hungry Years : Confessions of a Food Addict Paperback


'Hunger is the loudest voice in my head. I'm hungry most of the time'. One January morning in 2003, William Leith woke up to the fattest day of his life.

That same day he left London for New York to interview controversial diet guru Dr Robert Atkins.

What started out as a routine assignment set Leith on an intensely personal and illuminating journey into the mysteries of hunger and addiction. "The Hungry Years" charts new territory for anyone who has ever had a craving or counted a calorie.

This story of food, fat, and addiction will change the way you look at food for ever.
