Can I drink alcohol and still lose weight on the Don’t Go Hungry Diet?
Yes, as long as you enjoy it as part of a varied diet based mainly on whole foods, especially vegetables and fruit. A participant in one of my workshops lost 4 kilos in three months while still enjoying the occasional Guinness. This was a welcome relief after years of all-or-nothing dieting calling for complete abstinence from alcohol.
What our readers say...
"Thanks so much for your book. I don't usually buy books like this but it put itself into my hands when I was in a department store (Target) of all places. Your information has filled what seemed to be a crucial gap in my knowledge (i.e. about the famine reaction/fat brake) and it also seems intuitively so right. Although my weight is not too much of an issue now, everything you wrote made so much sense that I lost a couple of kilos just by thinking about and getting excited about the ideas and changing a few little habits I had gotten into. I just wish I could better express how much of a revelation your book was/is. Thanks again. "
