WelcomeAs a weight loss scientist, I'm excited to share two areas of cutting edge science that will make it easier for you to lose weight and keep it off.
If you've ever tried to lose weight, you'll know the Famine Reaction. You've lost a few kilos, you're feeling good, you're doing all the right things…when you suddenly stop losing weight and you start feeling really hungry.
That's your Famine Reaction, a survival mechanism that protects you from wasting away.
So what do you do about it?
If you're following a conventional weight loss program, you struggle on. You resist your hunger, and you might do more exercise.
As a scientist with over 17 years of medical research experience, it's now clear that the conventional approach exacerbates the Famine Reaction and makes it even harder to lose weight.
The exciting news from medical research is that you can switch off the Famine Reaction and lose weight more effectively.
By simply eating the types and amounts of mostly nutritious foods that satisfy you. Sounds too good to be true, but having lost 28 kilos and kept if off for 9 years as you'll see from my photos at right, and having seen others experience similar success, I know it works.
The other ground breaking scientific concept I want to share with you is your Fat Brake and how to use it to keep the weight off.
Just as your body has a Famine Reaction to protect you from losing weight, it also has a Fat Brake that protects you from gaining weight.
For instance let's imagine you gain a kilo or two over the holidays. Your Fat Brake then revs up your metabolic rate and cuts your appetite. So if you simply follow your hunger signals you lose that excess weight automatically.
When you know how to tame your Famine Reaction and boost your Fat Brake as I describe in The Don't Go Hungry Diet, you can lose weight and keep it off with less effort than ever before.

What the experts say...
"Dr Amanda, Long time no write/hear. A lot has happened diet-wise since we last communicated. I have LEARNED. Never before have I dieted *for life*. Diets for me in the past have always been a means to an end. Your book has taught me many things. Mainly that a diet and the way we eat is a permanent thing, and secondly HOW to listen to my body when it's hungry and when it's full. At the beginning of this process my immediate goal was to quickly lose weight. This has evolved into a desire to lose weight, but at my body's pace. As a result, I am continuing to lose weight, but I've removed the time frame. My *long term* target is 80 kg, and in time, I believe I will achieve this. Once again, I thank you for your wise and sensible advice from one of the best books on the subject in print! Matthew P.S. Attached is my progress, kept updated since my last contact. I have now lost 11.5 kilos since I started your program nine months ago. "
