I already eat healthily and exercise, so why aren't I losing weight?
People sometimes say that before they learned about my weight loss method they were already doing what I say: eating healthy foods only when hungry and doing some form of regular physical activity, but that they stayed the same weight. Their question is how could my program help them to actually lose weight. The Don't Go Hungry Diet is simple but not necessarily easy. You have to be scrupulously honest and only eat when you're physically hungry and stop as soon as you feel satisfied. Writing down everything you eat as well as how hungry and satisfied you feel before and after is the only way to know if you're following your body signals accurately. If you do this, as well as continue with your nutritious food choices and do some form of regular physical activity, you'll definitely lose weight.
What our readers say...
"Dear Dr Amanda, Just a quick thank you for sending my parcel. I am totally enjoying reading what you have to say. I am wondering just how many people have 'discovered' you and if they haven't why not? As I mentioned to you briefly the other day, I have been through Fit for Life, Pritikin, Weight Watchers, Too Good To Be True and Tony Ferguson's diets and have eventually put a good deal of what I did lose back on. BUT, and this might seem a bit premature, I am SO EXCITED about starting on your 'diet'. I have never read anywhere (and my husband and I have done a great deal of reading about nutrition and weight loss), anything like you are advocating. I understand fully what you are saying and it all makes so much sense. I have never been excited about losing weight before (it has all been in the too-hard-basket) but I really am enjoying following your guidelines. If ever I am asked who I'd vote for as Australian of the Year I'd have to say you. I truly hope that more and more people 'find' you Amanda and that those who have tried and failed at all the other so-called weight loss "experts" have their lives changed and enhanced by your research and advice. Anyway, so much for the quick note! Thanks again Amanda and I congratulate you on your website. It is most informative and very user-friendly! Warm regards, Kaye Frost-Smith PS I have spent all morning making your Cottage Pie, and from licking the spoon it tastes fantastic!"
