What our readers say...

"Dear Dr Amanda, I heard your interview on the Margaret Throsby show late last year (2008) and I was convinced that you had finally uncovered the secret. However, it has been so slow a process for me that I have wondered if I were the exception that proves the rule. I realized that I often ate when not hungry and did not get enough steps in my days. I have grown to listen to and trust by body, and do my best with the steps, working on an average for a week. In the five months since November I have lost 2 kilograms and I believe that these will stay off. I believe I need to lose about 8 kilos. But as I put the weight on in small 1/4 kilo increments, this must be the healthy way take it off. I am 56 and thought that perhaps the middle age spread was my destiny, as I believed that I ate well and went to the gym regularly but without losing anything. I have recommended your method, book and website to many even though I was a little concerned that I was not actually losing. I work as an academic, so value both the research and evidence based approach, and the guilt free philosophy. Well done! And thank you. "
