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.

"What I loved the most about Amanda's weight loss program is that it was so simple and so totally different to all the weight loss programs I have tried over the past 20+ years. I did not have to count points, weigh food or only eat specific foods. I travel a lot and dine out a lot with clients so eating specific foods, weighing food and counting points does not work for me. Amanda's consulting program helped me see my weight loss journey as exciting and positive. Amanda's consulting helped me fine tune how to go about changing my eating and exercise habits so I could lose weight almost effortlessly. I lost 5.3 kilos in 16 weeks and have kept if off now for over 6 months. I am still quite stunned about how easy it has all been. I have been trying to lose this weight for over 15 years. Also I know without any doubt that the weight I have lost is permanently lost as I have permanently changed my habits. I have had several people (including my husband) say I look 10 years younger. Not only do I look 10 years younger but I feel it too. Thank you Amanda and I am so glad I "found" you PS: I threw out all the trousers in my wardrobe that are now too big for me. There is no going back!"
