Psychiatrist Hunt (a self-described "totally committed chocolate-cola junkie") claims that food cravings are physicalnot psychologicalin origin and result from infections, vitamin/mineral deficiencies and/or food allergies. And as soon as the body "gets what it really needs (the material recommended in this book to block the cravings)," he asserts, "you lose your appetite (cravings) for foods that are not good for you." Although stylistically awkward and simplistic, this guide presents some absorbing case studies of idiosyncratic addictive behavior, elucidating how allergenic foods become habit-forming, as well as the deceptive origins of a number of cravings, including bread and cheese (yeast allergy; the fungal infection candidiasis), ice (iron deficiency), beef (beef allergy; phosphorus deficiency). Readers are advised how to seek competent professional help for oftenelusive problems, and sensible over-the-counter vitamin and mineral supplements are also proffered. 35,000 first printing; $35,000 ad/promo; first serial to Family Circle; Prevention Book Club selection; author tour.
