What our readers say...

"Hi Amanda! I was so excited to receive your reply to my e-mail! I will definitely let you know what my set point weight ends up being. So far this is a very amazing and eye opening journey. I over indulged the day I bought and started reading your book, Don't Go Hungry For Life, but since deciding to follow your plan and starting my Success Diary I have not even been hungry! Usually I was eating 6 small meals a day regardless of whether I was hungry or not (a habit that was drilled into me when I was becoming a personal trainer), so it's great to know that my Fat Brake is actually working and is compensating for this past excess of food! My first meeting with anorexia was at the age of 10, and the last 10 years of my life (I'm now 20) have been a battle with bulimia. This is the first time in 10 years I feel completely in control! And it's only been a week, but my whole state of mind is so different now! And it's just in time, because my eating patterns/disorders were putting a huge strain on my marriage. My husband is so happy to see me being able to enjoy food and not end up binging/purging or starving myself for days afterward. I was particularly interested in the chapter in your book referring to hormones and the Famine Reaction, as we have been trying for a baby for 13 months with no luck. My menstruation stopped about 14 months ago, which I have been told by specialists is due to excessive exercise. I cut my exercise in half, but still no luck as my estrogen level is so far below where it is meant to be. So I am hoping that this new eating style can help balance my hormones as well as my moods. Again, thank you so much, your new book has not only helped me to escape from diet dungeon and face my demons, it is also helping my marriage. For the first time in 10 years, I feel like a normal person! I will update you when my weight balances its self out and will let you know how I go! Thanks."
