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 our readers say...
"What I loved the most about Amanda's weight loss program is that it was so simple and so totally different to all the weight loss programs I have tried over the past 20+ years. I did not have to count points, weigh food or only eat specific foods. I travel a lot and dine out a lot with clients so eating specific foods, weighing food and counting points does not work for me. Amanda's consulting program helped me see my weight loss journey as exciting and positive. Amanda's consulting helped me fine tune how to go about changing my eating and exercise habits so I could lose weight almost effortlessly. I lost 5.3 kilos in 16 weeks and have kept if off now for over 6 months. I am still quite stunned about how easy it has all been. I have been trying to lose this weight for over 15 years. Also I know without any doubt that the weight I have lost is permanently lost as I have permanently changed my habits. I have had several people (including my husband) say I look 10 years younger. Not only do I look 10 years younger but I feel it too. Thank you Amanda and I am so glad I "found" you PS: I threw out all the trousers in my wardrobe that are now too big for me. There is no going back!"
