Review: What Are You Hungry For? by Deepak Chopra

What Are You Hungry For? is Deepak Chopra's move into the diet genre for self-help.  Like Mark Bittman's VB6 books, Chopra's new book (which is a paperback original) shuns the term "diet" and argues that what it is doing is more akin to changing your lifestyle by changing the way you think about food, and you will happen to lose some weight and become healthier along the way.  I have to admit that I do like this new genre of diet book, which for me, at least, is a bit easier to swallow than the traditional diet philosophy.  Chopra, unsurprisingly, brings pop psychology and pop Eastern philosophy to the table in formulating his revolution in your eating.  While Bittman's book is pretty straight-forward and simple in its philosophy, Chopra's book is more of a mish-mash of different philosophies all thrown into a pot and mixed together.  I don't think this is really the most effective way of losing weight, but at least it's not about counting calories!
