Help! I gained a kilo in a week!
What were you doing weighing in so frequently? I strongly encourage you to weigh yourself only once a month. On the Don't Go Hungry Diet you eat as much as you need to eat in order to feel satisfied. This results in fluctuations in how much you eat from day to day as well as how much water your body holds. It's therefore possible to 'gain' a kilo or more in a week without gaining a single gram of fat. However, if you listen carefully to your body, eat nutritious foods and do some form of regular physical activity, underneath the daily swings in body water will be a gradual decrease in body fat. It might not show up on the scales after a week, but you'll feel it in your clothes, and after a month you'll see it on the scales.
What our readers say...
"I have just recently finished Dr Amanda's telephone coaching program. I had read her book, I agreed with the principles and I had tried the 'diet' on my own without a lot of success. I was plateaued at 86.2 kilos for months. Then I decided to get some serious accountability going and I contacted Dr Amanda. I cannot recommend this enough to anybody who is needing to get off the 'merry-go-round' of dieting. Through my 'sessions' I learnt to stay focussed, to set achievable short-term goals and received feedback and encouragement each fortnight. In eight weeks, I lost 3.9 kilos and I am confident that I can continue to enjoy success. In fact, this Christmas I was thrilled to have been able to maintain my weight for the first Christmas EVER despite having truly 'enjoyed' some serious entertaining! Thank you so much Dr Amanda."
