"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."

"hi amanda, I bought your book couple of days back, and now that ive finished it, i want to say thank you and share my experience so that it can help others in this "once-exhausting" journey towards maintaining one's weight. I have been in australia for the past 3 years. During my first 4 months, i had put on 10 kg. I went back to my home country, exercised, ate properly and lost these extra kilos. However, for the last 3 years i have been struggling to maintain my weight . I have never really been overweight , and during my the past three years my weight has been fluctuating from 55 to 60 kg. the funny thing is that everytime i would go back home to be on holidays, i just would not understand how come i lost weight while eating everything i wanted. When ill come back to australia, although ill diet more than i use to at home durings my holiday, although ill exercise like crazy here in australia, i would still put on some weight. i first thought that it might have something to do with the food at home and the food in australia. I also thought that it might have something to do with the weather or climate or even temperature. However, after reading your book, i understandd what it was all about. The answer was that went i went home for holidays, ill just forget about dieting, and ill just eat the proper food whenever ill feel like, and ill eat the amount i felt like, so as to feel just satisfied or "elegantly" satisfied. i went back home over the summer holidays, for 3 months, and lost weight. I came back and bought your book and got all my answers for all the questions ive been asking myself for the past 3 years. I just want to say thank you, and i hope that this message might help others. "
