How can I cope with challenges such as holidays and stressful events?
Take a weight loss holiday. While you'll never struggle with hunger and you won't need brute force, losing weight on the Don't Go Hungry Diet requires vigilance and scrupulous honesty. Weight maintenance, in contrast, is considerably more forgiving. You can afford more overindulgence. So if you're in a situation where you just can't focus on weight loss, focus on maintaining your weight instead. There's absolutely no reason why you have to be trying to lose weight all the time. As long as you're not gaining, whether you're losing or maintaining you're on your way to long-term success.

"Hi Amanda, I would just like to thank you for all of your guidance via the book, emails and seminar which helped me to lose 7kg in order to fit into my wedding dress and feel fantastic on the day. Unexpectedly, I have also fallen pregnant (Due June 11th). I am trying my hardest to stick with your advice of eating what I feel like when I need it and so far have not experienced any wierd cravings except for the need of more carbs during the day. I am nervous about the challenge of losing the weight after pregnancy but keep telling myself that "I did it once so I can do it again!" Thanks again, Reagan"
