"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 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. "
