How does the Don’t Go Hungry Diet compare to higher protein diets?
Research shows that higher amounts of protein may help you to lose slightly more weight and keep it off more effectively than diets with less protein. However, most people who eat in the Don't Go Hungry way - choosing nutritious foods and eating enough to satisfy their physical needs - automatically eat the moderate amounts of protein stipulated by higher protein diets. So there's no need to follow specific meal plans or load up on protein in order to get any weight loss advantages of a higher protein diet.

"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."
