"My commitment to creating a non-punitive and pleasurable approach to weight management grew out of having a child who was diagnosed with a life threatening illness where weight loss was urgent and necessary. The mixed messages and emotional rollercoaster around food and weight management were profound and confusing. I have since devoted my studies, research and practice to approaching weight management from a hopeful and supportive perspective, determined that it need not be restrictive, punishing or alienating at a time when one is most vulnerable."
What our readers say...
"Dear Dr. Amanda, I just wanted to say thank you for your very readable, helpful and fascinating book which has given me so much hope. I've loved finding out how my body works - and realising that I am not some freak of nature, that my body is designed just like most other people's bodies and that I CAN lose weight and keep it off once and for all. I have lost 16 kgs since June - and not regained any! My largest loss was 1.8 kgs one week, my smallest loss 0.2 of a kg another week. I know I shouldn't weigh myself weekly - it is probably the one thing I still struggle with. However, in all this time I have not once gained weight. My energy levels are through the roof. I am having a love affair with a very suave pedometer! I can't leave the house without it. I love forgetting something at the other end of the house - it's a great excuse to walk back and add steps to my daily total! My kids have pedometers too. I have gone from a size 20 to a size 14 - 16. I'd like to lose another 10 kgs and I really believe for the first time in my life that I can do it. I can't believe I used to think that it was ok to eat 10 rice crackers for a snack because they were great value at "only 1 point for 10". So why not eat 20 - for only 2 points! And I did, all the time. And then I'd be hungry again half an hour later. I now realise they are highly-processed high GI junk and only an elite athlete can get away with such a high GI carb-overload. You, on the other hand, really know what you are talking about. I am proof of that. Thanks again, and I will be seeing you at Oatley library on the 18th of October. Kind regards, J.S. "
