What the experts say...
"Dr Amanda Sainsbury-Salis brings a touch of reality as well as a good healthy dose of scientific understanding to her approach to weight control. Not only is Amanda amongst the best scientists in the world in obesity research, but she has been through the problem herself and found that the standard recommendations don't necessarily work - particularly for women, who are much more complicated creatures than men. You'll find this a refreshing approach in an often very tired old field. I thoroughly recommend it."
